Scope of personal data processing
As a rule, we collect and utilise our users’ personal data only to the extent that allows us to provide a functional website and our content and services. The regular collection and deployment of a user’s personal data takes place only with their consent. The exception is in cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for de facto reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis whenever we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data.
Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis when we process personal data needed to fulfil an agreement to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations needed for the performance of pre-contractual activities.
Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis whenever the processing of personal data is required for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject.
Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis in the event that personal data have to be processed to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data, if that processing is required to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and provided the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh those interests.
Data deletion and storage period
The data subject’s personal data are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of their storage ceases to apply. They may continue to be stored if permitted by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible entity is subject. Data is also blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless the data still need to be stored for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
