General information on data protection processing 

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about the handling of your data.  We collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users are regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations. 

 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data 

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the users for the processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. an EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the user is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the users of another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third-party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para.1 f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

 

Disclosure of data to third parties and third-party providers

  1. Within the framework of the statutory provisions, we are entitled to commission other companies and persons to perform tasks on our behalf for the fulfillment of which the disclosure of personal data is necessary. 
  2. Personal data is only passed on to third parties on the basis of legal permits and within the framework of legal requirements.
  3. We only pass on user data to third parties if this is necessary, for example, on the basis of Art. 6 para lit. b GDPR for contractual purposes, or if we use services within the scope of our legitimate interests, Art. 6 para. lit. f GDPR. If we commission third parties with the processing of data within the framework of a so-called order processing contract, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR. If we use third-party services to provide our services, we take appropriate legal precautions and technical and organizational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant legal provisions.
  4. Personal data may also be transferred to servers outside the EU or to trusted third parties that have their servers outside the EU. You should be aware that many countries do not offer the same legal protections for personal information that you enjoy in the EU. While your personal information is located in another country, courts, law enforcement, and national security authorities of that country may access it in accordance with those laws. Subject to your express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we only process or have the data processed outside the EU only in third countries with a recognized level of data protection, contractual obligations through so-called standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission, in the presence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to Art. 49 GDPR).
