Which of your data are processed by us? And for what purposes?

If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we have received or collected it.

Data processing for other purposes can only be considered if the necessary legal requirements according to Art. 6 Par. 4 DSGVO exist. In this case, we will of course comply with any information obligations under Art. 13 para. 3 DSGVO and Art. 14 para. 4 DSGVO.


On what legal basis is this based?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle – unless there are specific legal provisions – Art. 6 DSGVO. Here the following possibilities come into consideration in particular:

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO)
  • Data processing for the performance of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 letter b) DSGVO
  • Data processing based on a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) DSGVO)
  • Data processing to fulfil a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO)

If personal data are processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a balancing of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 DSGVO.


How long is the data stored?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

Insofar as statutory storage obligations exist – e.g. in commercial law or tax law – the relevant personal data is stored for the duration of the storage obligation. After expiration of the obligation to keep records, a check is made as to whether there is any further need for processing. If a need no longer exists, the data is deleted.

As a matter of principle, we review data towards the end of a calendar year with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the volume of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific types of data or purposes of processing.

Of course, you may at any time (see below) request information about your personal data stored by us and, if not necessary, request that the data be deleted or processing restricted.


To which recipients will the data be forwarded?

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, if the transfer is permitted on the basis of a weighing of interests within the meaning of. Art. 6 1 para. f). DSGVO, if we are legally obliged to transfer the data or if you have given your consent.
