III. General Information about Data Processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functioning website and 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 to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact 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 a legal basis. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b of the GDPR applies as a legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions. Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that is subject to our company, Art. 6, para. 1, lit. c of the GDPR serves as a legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another individual require the processing of personal data, Art. 6, para. 1, lit. d of the GDPR serves as a legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the said legitimate interests, Art. 6, para. 1, lit. f of the GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.

 

3. Data Deletion and Storage Duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted. In addition, the storage may be continued if it is obligated by any EU or national regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when the storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.
