  1. Legal basis of the processing of personal data 

Insofar as we obtain your consent for processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. 

 

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing of personal data that is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. 

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

 

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

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.   

  1. Data deletion and storage period 

Your personal data shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if this has been intended by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. 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 performance of a contract.
