Legal basis for the processing of personal data
In the following we inform you about the legal basis of the processing of personal data:
- If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request, Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. legal storage obligations), Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. d) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary to protect our or the legitimate interests of a third party and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not prevail in this respect, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
Disclosure of personal data to third parties and contract processors
Without your consent we do not pass on any data to third parties. Should this nevertheless be the case, then the passing on takes place on the basis of the aforementioned legal bases, e.g. with the passing on of data to on-line payment offerers for the fulfilment of contract or due to judicial arrangement or due to a legal obligation to the publication of the data for the purpose of the criminal prosecution, to the danger defence or to the penetration of the rights at the mental property. We also use contract processors (external service providers, e.g. for the web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to contract processors within the framework of an agreement on order processing, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. We select our contract processors carefully, check them regularly and have been granted the right to issue instructions with regard to the data. In addition, the contract processors must have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures and comply with the data protection regulations according to BDSG n.F. and DS-GVO.
Transfer of data to third countries
The adoption of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO) created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore mainly be processed by companies for which the DS-GVO applies. Should processing by third parties take place outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must comply with the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. of the Data Protection Act. DS-GVO. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the official recognition by the EU Commission of a data protection level corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognised special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses". For US companies, submission to the so-called "Privacy Shield", the data protection agreement between the EU and the USA, fulfils these requirements.
Deletion of data and storage duration
Unless otherwise expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies, unless its further storage is necessary for the purposes of proof or statutory storage obligations stand in the way of this. This includes, for example, obligations under commercial law to retain business letters in accordance with § 257 (1) HGB (6 years) as well as obligations under tax law to retain documents in accordance with § 147 (1) AO (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless storage is still necessary for the conclusion of a contract or for the fulfilment of the contract.
Existence of an automated decision making process
We do not use automatic decision making or profiling.
