2. Scope of the processing of personal data

In principle, we process your personal data only to the extent required to provide a functional website along with our content and services. Your personal data is regularly processed only if we have previously received your consent. An exception is made in such cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and statutory provisions permit the processing of the data.

3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Provided that we have obtained the data subject's consent to process their personal data, Article 6(1a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (General Data Protection Regulation) serves as the legal basis.

For the processing of personal data which is required to perform a contract with the data subject, Article 6(1b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6(1c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6(1d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary in order to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Art. 6(1f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

4. Erasure of data and storage period

The personal data of the data subject shall be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. The data may be stored beyond this period if this has been stipulated in regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data shall then only be blocked or erased if a storage period that has been stipulated by the standards mentioned elapses, unless a requirement for continued storage of the data exists for the conclusion of a contract or contract fulfilment.
