I. General data processing information
1. Scope of personal data processing
We process only as much of our users’ personal data as is necessary to ensure the functionality of our website, contents, and performance, and only do so regularly with their consent. An exception arises in instances where it is truly not possible to obtain a user’s consent and such processing is legally permitted.
Insofar as we obtain consent to process personal data from the affected party, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Clause a of the EU Basic Reguation for Data Protection (Datenschutzgrundverordnung/DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. Where personal data processing is necessary to fulfil a contract and such data belongs to the contracting party, DSGVO Article 6, Paragraph 1, Clause b serves as its legal basis. It also serves as the legal basis for processing operations necessary for the taking of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for discharging a legal duty to which our company is subject, DSGVO Article 6, Paragraph 1, Clause c serves as its legal basis. In the case that the processing of personal data is necessary to preserve the vital interests of the affected party or a third party, DSGVO Article 6, Paragraph 1, Clause d serves as its legal basis. Where the processing of personal data is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and where these interests are not outweighed by the affected party’s interests or statutory rights or freedoms, DSGVO Article 6, Paragraph 1, Clause f serves as its legal basis.
3. Data deletion and retention periods
Personal data will be deleted or locked as soon as the purpose for which they were retained no longer obtains. Personal data may, moreover, be saved when regulations, laws, or provisions given by the European Union or the national legislature, and to which the responsible party is subject, provide for such. Data will also be locked or deleted when a retention period expires according to the aforementioned legal provisions, unless it remains necessary to retain them to fulfil or conclude a contract.
