A. General information on data processing

1) Personal data

Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a certain or definable natural person. This includes information such as name, address, telephone number and email address, but also the IP address that can be assigned to a connection. Information that is not directly associated with the identity of a person - such as favorite websites or number of users of a site - is not personal data.

2) Scope of personal data processing.

As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website of our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

3) Legal basis for the processing of personal data.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data in accordance with, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b of the DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter c of the DSGVO serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter d of the DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

4) Data deletion and storage duration.

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which we are subject.
