If you have consented to the data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a GDPR or Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letter a GDPR, if special data categories according to Article 9 Paragraph 1 GDPR are processed. In the event of express consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing is also based on Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to access information on your end device (e.g. via device fingerprinting), data processing is also based on Section 25 (1) TTDSG.

If these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that in these countries no level of data protection comparable to that of the EU can be guaranteed. For example, US companies are obliged to release personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. It cannot therefore be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) will process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

- Legal basis for processing
Article 6 (I) (a) of the GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations, for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is required for the fulfilment of a contract, whose contracting party is the data subject, as is the case, for example, for processing operations required for the delivery of services or return services, Article 6 (I) (b) of the GDPR serves as the basis for processing. The same applies to processing operations required for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for instance in cases of enquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring a processing of personal data, for instance for the fulfilment of fiscal obligations, said processing is based on Article 6 (I) (c) of the GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. For example, this may be the case if a visitor is injured on our premises and his or her name, age, insurance information, or other vital information would need to be shared with a doctor, a hospital, or other third parties. Then, processing would be based on Article 6 (I) (d) of the GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (I) (f) of the GDPR. Processing operations, which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases, are based on this legal basis if processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or third party, provided that the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedom of the data subject are not predominant. We are entitled to these types of processing operations in particular because they are specifically mentioned by the European legislative bodies. The legislative bodies assume legitimate interest if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2 of the GDPR).
- Legitimate interest in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
Based on the processing of personal data pursuant to Article 6 (I) (f) of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the operation of our business to benefit all of our employees and shareholders.
- The duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the storage period of personal data is the respective retention period stipulated by law. After the expiration of this retention period, the data are routinely erased if they are no longer needed for the fulfillment of the contract or contract conclusion.
- Legal or contractual provisions regarding the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide the data
We hereby point out that the provision of personal data is in part prescribed by law (e.g. tax law) or may emerge from contractual requirements (e.g. information about the contractual partner). In the context of concluding a contract, it may be necessary that a data subject provides us with personal data, which we are then required to process. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal data if our company enters a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data may make it impossible to conclude the contract with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject shall contact one of our staff members. Our staff member will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis, whether the provision of the personal data is legally or contractually required and whether there exists a requirement to provide the personal data, as well as the consequences that result from the failure to provide the personal data.
