1. Extent of processing of personal data
In principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), serves as legal basis.
The legal basis for the processing to perform our services and implement contractual activities and answering queries is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for the processing to comply with our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for the processing to protect our legitimate interests Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or of another individual may require the processing of personal data Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis.
3. Data erasure and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as they are no longer required. Storage can be done beyond, if this has been provided by European or national legislation in EU law regulations, laws or regulations, to which the responsible person is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfilment of the contract.

In these purposes lies our legitimate interest in data processing acc. to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
