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 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.
