III. General information on data processing
- Scope of processing of personal data
In principle, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases where prior consent is not possible for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
- Legal basis for the processing of personal data
As far as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Article 6 sec. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as a legal basis. When the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is the party, Article 6 sec. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 sec. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as a legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 sec. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Article 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing.
- Data erasure and storage time
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer necessary. Storage may also take place if this has been provided by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject to. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion of a contract or a fulfilment of the contract.
