III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

We collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website including our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place regularly and only with their consent. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.


2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data Deletion and Storage Duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
