Legal basis for processing personal data

If we obtain consent from the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

If we process personal data for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that processing of personal data is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Art. 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate interest pursued by our company or by a third party and if the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data erasure and storage period

Personal data of data subjects will be erased or blocked by us as soon as the purpose for which it is stored ceases to apply.

If the legislator has imposed regulations to which we are subject, the data may be stored beyond this point. The data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by these regulations expires, unless it is necessary to continue to store the data in order to conclude or fulfill a contract.
