Legal bases for processing personal data

In the following we will inform you about the legal bases for the processing of personal data:

  1. If we have obtained your consent to the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR is the legal basis.
  2. If the processing is necessary to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures that are taken at your request, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR is the legal basis.
  3. If the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. legal storage obligations), then Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c) GDPR is the legal basis.
  4. If processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. d) GDPR is the legal basis.
  5. If processing is necessary to safeguard our interests or those of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh them, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f) GDPR is the legal basis.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties and processors

In principle, we do not pass on any data to third parties without your consent. If this is the case, then the data will be passed on on the basis of the aforementioned legal bases, e.g. when data is passed on to online payment providers for the fulfillment of a contract or due to a court order or due to a legal obligation to release the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution or to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We also use contract processors (external service providers, e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to the processors as part of an agreement on order processing, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. We select our processors carefully, check them regularly and have been granted the right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures and comply with the data protection regulations in accordance with the BDSG new version and the DS-GVO


Data transfer to third countries

The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore be processed primarily by companies for which the GDPR applies. Should the processing take place by third-party services outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the determination of a data protection level that is officially recognized by the EU Commission or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses". For US companies, compliance with the so-called "Privacy Shield", the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, fulfills these requirements.


Deletion of data and storage period

Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storage no longer applies, unless further storage is required for evidentiary purposes or there are legal storage obligations to the contrary. This includes, for example, commercial law retention requirements for business letters in accordance with § 257 Paragraph 1 HGB (6 years) and tax retention requirements for receipts in accordance with § 147 Paragraph 1 AO (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted unless storage is still required for the conclusion of a contract or for the fulfillment of a contract.


Existence of automated decision-making

We do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
