III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in such cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

2. Legal basis for processing personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that 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, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. c GDPR 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, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject.
