Legal Bases for the Processing
In the following, you will find an overview of the legal basis of the GDPR on which we base
the processing of personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR,
national data protection provisions of your or our country of residence or domicile may
apply. If, in addition, more specific legal bases are applicable in individual cases, we will
inform you of these in the data protection declaration.
- Consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR)– The data subject has given consent to the
processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes.
- Performance of a contract and prior requests (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR)–
Performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or to take steps at the
request of the data subject prior to entering a contract.
- Legitimate Interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR)– Processing is necessary for the
purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and
freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data.
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures in accordance with the legal
requirements, considering the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature,
scope, context, and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and
severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, to ensure a level of security
appropriate to the risk.
The measures include safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by
controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as access to, input, transmission,
securing and separation of the data. In addition, we have established procedures to ensure that
data subjects’ rights are respected, that data is erased, and that we are prepared to respond to
data threats rapidly. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account as
early as the development or selection of hardware, software, and service providers, in
accordance with the principle of privacy by design and privacy by default.
Transmission of Personal Data
In the context of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transferred to
other places, companies, or persons or that it is disclosed to them. Recipients of this data may
include, for example, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services
and content that are embedded in a website. In such a case, the legal requirements will be
respected and corresponding contracts or agreements, which serve the protection of your data,
will be concluded with the recipients of your data.
Data Processing in Third Countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU), the European
Economic Area (EEA)) or the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party
services or disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies, or companies, this will only
take place in accordance with the legal requirements.
Subject to express consent or transfer required by contract or law, we process or have
processed the data only in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, on the
basis of special guarantees, such as a contractual obligation through so-called standard
protection clauses of the EU Commission or if certifications or binding internal data
protection regulations justify the processing (Article 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the
EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international
Erasure of dataThe data processed by us will be erased in accordance with the statutory provisions as soon as
their processing is revoked, or other permissions no longer apply (e.g., if the purpose of
processing this data no longer applies or they are not required for the purpose).
If the data is not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes,
their processing is limited to these purposes. This means that the data will be restricted and
not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for
commercial or tax reasons or for which storage is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal
claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person.
