B. General
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 and our contents and services. If this is not the case, personal data is regularly only used with the user's consent. 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 regulations.


Legal basis of the processing

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a of the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data which are necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b of the DPA serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. In cases where vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter d of the DPA serves as the legal basis. 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, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the conduct of our business.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store personal data of the person concerned only as long as this is necessary to achieve the purpose of storage. In addition, data may be stored for as long as this is provided for by the European or national legislator in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible for processing is subject. As soon as the storage purpose ceases to apply or a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted.

Security of your data
We take all reasonable technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of your data. In addition, all web forms with which you transmit sensitive data to us are encrypted and thus optimally protected against unauthorized reading.
