Legal basis for processing personal data

Below we inform you about the legal basis for processing personal data:

If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter a) GDPR is the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures at your request, Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter b) GDPR is the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. legal retention obligations), Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter c) GDPR is the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter d) GDPR is the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect our or a third party’s legitimate interests and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh this, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f) GDPR is the legal basis.

Transfer of personal data to third parties and processors

As a general rule, we do not pass on any data to third parties without your consent. If this is the case, then the transfer takes place on the basis of the aforementioned legal bases, e.g. when transferring data to online payment providers to fulfill the contract or due to a court order or due to a legal obligation to release the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution or to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We also use processors (external service providers, e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to the processor as part of an order processing agreement, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. We carefully select our processors, check them regularly and have been granted the right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures and comply with the data protection regulations in accordance with the new version of the BDSG and the GDPR

Data transfer to third countries

The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data is therefore predominantly processed by companies that apply to the GDPR. If the processing takes place by third-party services outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR. This means that the processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as the determination of a data protection level that corresponds to the EU officially recognized by the EU Commission or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called “standard contractual clauses”.
If we obtain your express consent to data transfer in the USA due to the ineffectiveness of the so-called “Privacy Shield” in accordance with Article 49 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter a) GDPR, this indicates the risk of secret access US authorities and the use of the data for surveillance purposes, possibly without legal recourse for EU citizens.

Deletion of data and storage period

Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the consent given to the processing is revoked by you or the purpose for storage no longer applies or the data is no longer required for the purpose, unless their Further storage is necessary for evidentiary purposes or this is contrary to statutory retention requirements. This includes, for example, commercial law retention obligations for business letters in accordance with Section 257 Paragraph 1 of the German Civil Code (BGB). 1 HGB (6 years) as well as tax retention obligations according to Section 147 Paragraph 1 AO of receipts (10 years). When the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless storage is still necessary to conclude a contract or to fulfill the contract.

Existence of automated decision making

We do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
