  1. Principles relating to processing of personal data

1. Scope of processing of personal data

We generally only collect and use personal data of our users if this is required to provide a functional website or our contents and services. Collection and use of your personal data within the realm of our website usually takes place only with your consent. However, an exception shall apply in such cases where collection of advance consent is not possible for factual reasons and where processing of the data is nevertheless permitted by the law.

2. Legal basis relating to processing of personal data

The data transmitted by or collected from you are only collected, used, processed, stored and – if required by law or contractually required – passed on to third parties only within the context of the applicable data protection laws (GDPR, Federal and state Data Protection Acts and Telemedia Act).

Article 6 GDPR leads to various legal bases for processing of your personal data that are referred to from case to case in this data protection statement:

Art. 6 Abs. 1 a) Article 6(1)(a) GDPR is the legal basis for processing operations of personal data with consent of the data subject.

Art. 6 Abs. 1 b) Article 6(1)(b) GDPR is the legal basis for processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party. This legal basis shall also refer to such processing operations that are necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

If we need to process personal data for compliance with a legal obligation of our company, the legal basis for this shall be Article 6(1)(c) GDPR.

Art. 6 Abs. 1 d) Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis if vital interests of the data subject or any other natural person require processing of his or her personal data.

If processing of personal data is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate interest pursued by our company or by a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override this first interest of our company or a third party, this processing shall take place on the legal basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

3. Data erasure and storage period

As soon as the purpose of storage of the respective personal data of the data subject no longer applies, they shall be deleted or blocked. However, storage may take place beyond this point of time if this was stipulated in European or national regulations, laws or other rules that we as Controller responsible for processing are subject to. Blocking or erasure of the data shall also take place if a storage period required by the standards named expires, except if further storage of such data is required for entering into a contract or performance of a contract.
