Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that is subject to our company, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR is the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR is the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR is the legal basis for processing.

The personal data of data subjects is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted. A storage after discontinuation of the storage purpose can take place, if this is provided for by law. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.

4. Right to Cancellation

7. Right of Objection

You have the right at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object the processing of your personal data based on Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal information, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, pursuing or defending legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail.

(1) is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us,

(2) is permitted under Union or Member State legislation to which we are subject, and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or

(3) with your expressed consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data according to Article 9 (1) GDPR, unless Article 9 (2) (a) or (g) GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), we shall take reasonable steps to uphold the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the person responsible, to express one’s own point of view, and contest the decision.
