2. General principles for data processing


a) Extent of processing of personal data

In principle, we process your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website and to provide our contractual services.

b) 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 subs. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 subs. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation of our company, Art. 6 subs. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 subs. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the legitimate interest of our company or a third party, Art. 6 subs. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.

c) Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is ceased. Prolonged storage may occur, if such extended storage is provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is amendable to. Blocking or deletion of the data also occurs when a storage period prescribed by the laws and regulations mentioned before expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
