III. General information on data processing
1. Scope of processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website, contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal provisions.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
If consent of the data subject is obtained for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c) GDPR applies.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d) GDPR shall apply.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Deletion of personal data and data retention
The personal data of data subjects will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in European regulations, laws or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. The data is also blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, unless the further storage of the data is necessary for the performance of a contract.
