1. General information about our data processing

We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. As a rule, collection and use of our users’ personal data is only undertaken with the respective 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.

In cases where we have obtained consent on the part of the user (also referred to as the “data subject”) to process personal data, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing this personal data. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary in connection with pre-contractual activities.

In cases where it is necessary to process personal data to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis for such processing.

Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis in cases where processing personal data is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or those of another natural person.

If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of ours or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh these interests, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for such processing.

Personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose for which the data is stored ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be retained for longer periods if this has been provided for by European or national legislative bodies in EU regulations, laws or other rules to which the controller subject. Data will also be blocked or erased if a retention period prescribed by the laws referred to above has lapsed, unless there is a need for further retention of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

When you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored by us to respond to your question. We erase data collected in this context after retention is no longer necessary, i.e. the purpose for which it was retained no longer applies, or limit processing if statutory retention obligations apply.

If we wish to use commissioned service providers for specific functions of our offerings, or use your data for marketing purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. We will also indicate the defined criteria for the applicable retention period.
