We only process our users' personal data to the extent that 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 in such cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

a) Transfer to third countries

3. Possibility of objection

In this case, you have the right to object to the data processing if you present reasons against the processing that arise from your particular situation. In this case, however, we can also present compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection, which nevertheless outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms. In this case, the objection cannot be implemented.

4. Data deletion and storage
