III.    General Information on Data Processing

 

  1. Scope of the Processing of Personal Data

The protection of your personal data is important to us. We only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functioning website as well as our contents and services. The processing of your personal data takes place usually only after your consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and processing of the data is permitted by law.

  1. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, art. 6(1)(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, art. 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, art. 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for processing.

  1. Data Erasure and Storage Time

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage is no longer valid. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
