Legal basis for the processing of personal data

In the following we inform you about the legal basis of the processing of personal data:

  1. If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  2. If the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out at your request, then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  3. If the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. statutory retention obligations), then Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
  4. If the processing is necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. d) DS-GVO.
  5. If the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not prevail in this respect, then Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties and processors

As a matter of principle, we do not pass on any data to third parties without your consent. Should this nevertheless be the case, then the disclosure is made on the basis of the aforementioned legal grounds, e.g. in the case of the disclosure of data to online payment providers for the performance of contracts or due to a court order or because of a legal obligation to hand over the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We also use processors (external service providers e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to the processors as part of a contract processing agreement, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. In doing so, we select our processors carefully, monitor them regularly and have been granted a right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken suitable technical and organizational measures and comply with the data protection regulations according to BDSG n.F. and DS-GVO.

Data transfer to third countries

The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data is therefore predominantly processed by companies to which the GDPR applies. However, if processing is carried out by services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, these must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DS-GVO. This means that the processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination by the EU Commission of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called “standard contractual clauses”. In the case of US companies, submission to the so-called “Privacy Shield”, the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, fulfils these requirements.

Deletion of data and storage period

Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as you revoke your consent to the processing or the purpose for the storage ceases to apply or the data is no longer required for the purpose, unless their continued storage is necessary for evidence purposes or is contrary to statutory retention obligations. This includes, for example, storage obligations under commercial law for business letters in accordance with § 257 Paragraph 1 HGB (6 years) and storage obligations under tax law in accordance with § 147 Paragraph 1 AO for receipts (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless the storage is still necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Existence of automated decision making

We do not use automated decision making or profiling.
