Legal bases for processing personal data

We will inform you of the legal bases for processing your personal data below:

  1. If we have obtained your consent to process your personal data, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Section 1 a) of the GDPR is the legal basis.
  2. If processing is performed to fulfil a contract or to take pre-contractual measures relating to your request, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Section 1 b) of the GDPR is the legal basis.
  3. If processing is required to meet a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. legal retention periods), Article 6, Paragraph 1, Section 1 c) of the GDPR is the legal basis.
  4. If processing is required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Section 1 d) of the GDPR is the legal basis.
  5. If processing is required to protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party and these interests are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Section 1 f) of the GDPR is the legal basis.

Transmitting personal data to third parties and processors

We will not transmit any data to third parties without your consent. If this is not the case, transmission is performed on the basis of the aforementioned legal bases, e.g. transmitting data to online payment providers to fulfil a contract, due to a judicial ordinance, due to a legal obligation to issue the data for the purposes of prosecution, hazard prevention or to assert rights to intellectual property.
Furthermore, we employ processors (external service providers, e.g. to host our website and databases) to process your personal data. If data is transferred to the processor as part of a processing agreement, this is always performed in accordance with Article 28 of the GDPR. We select our processors carefully, inspect them on a regular basis and have obtained an authority to give directives with regard to the data. Furthermore, the processors must have taken suitable technical and organisational measures, and adhere to the data protection regulations in accordance with the latest version of the Federal Data Protection Act and the GDPR

Transmitting data to third countries

The enactment of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provided a standard basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore be processed by companies that apply the GDPR. If processing is carried out by companies outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must fulfil the special requirements of Article 44 and the following articles in the GDPR. This means that processing is performed based on special guarantees such as the declaration of a data protection level that corresponds to that of the EU as recognised by the EU Commission or the observation of officially recognised special contractual obligations known as “standard contractual clauses”. For US companies, submission under the “Privacy Shield”, the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, meets these requirements.

Deleting data and saving duration

Unless explicitly specified in this data privacy statement, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of saving no longer exists, unless further retention is required as proof or there are legal retention periods. This includes commercial retention obligations for business letters in accordance with Section 257, Paragraph 1 of the German Commercial Code (6 years) and tax-based retention obligations in accordance with Section 147, Paragraph 1 of the German fiscal code for documents (10 years). Once the aforementioned retention period elapses, your data will be blocked or deleted unless they have to continue to be saved to conclude or fulfil a contract.

Existence of automated decision-making

We do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
