2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Provided that we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the fulfillment of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that is subject to our company, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as 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, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for data processing.
3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be blocked or disabled as soon as the purpose of the storage is forfeited. In addition, storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the responsible person is subject.
