What do we use your data for?

In general, we collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services.

Some of the data is also collected in order to ensure that the website is error-free. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.

What is the legal basis for data processing?

Where we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as a legal basis in the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

How long is the data stored?

In addition, the data may be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data subject is subject.

(2) the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.

In exercising this right you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transmitted directly by one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transferability does not apply to a processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the person responsible.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the DSGVO.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint was submitted will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 DSGVO.
