III. General information on data processing

  1. Scope of processing personal data

In principal, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent necessary in order to provide a functioning website with our content and services. The processing of personal data takes place regularly, and only with the consent of the user in question. Exceptions include cases whereby prior consent could not be obtained and that the processing of the data is, nonetheless, permitted by law.

  1. Legal basis for data processing

Sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis to obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of their data.

As for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is party, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b serves as a legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry our pre-contractual activities.

When it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the interest or well-being of the data subject or any relevant natural person(s) require the processing of personal data, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing of data is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or that of a third-party operator, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the person(s) concerned do not outweigh the interest of the former, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR will serve as a legal basis for the processing of data.

  1. Data removal and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage has been accomplished. In addition, such storage may be provided by the European or national legislator within the EU regulations, law, or other relevant regulations to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when the storage period stipulated by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to prolong the storage of the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling the respective contract.

IV. Rights of the person concerned
