The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. Any personal data collected on our website (such as name, address or email address), is given on a voluntary basis. The collection and use of personal data of our website users is being done regularly only with the user’s consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
We point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g., communication by email) always comes with a security risk. A seamless protection of data against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible and is not guaranteed.
Due to disclosure obligations, contact details are published in the imprint (“Impressum”) of our website. The use of this contact details by third parties for the transmission of unsolicited advertisements and information material is herewith specifically prohibited. The site operators reserve the right to take legal action in case of unsolicited sending of advertising information in any form (such as spam emails).
3.2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Whenever we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 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, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 para. 1 d 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 first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
The personal data of the person concerned will be erased or processing will be restricted as soon as the purpose of processing no longer applies. 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 controller is subject. The data will also be erased or restricted in processing 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.
