As a general principle, we only collect and use personal data from our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a well-functioning website and of our contents and services.  

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 Item a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. For the processing of personal data necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6 Para. 1 Item b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 Item c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 Para. 1 Item d GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary for the safeguarding of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 Para. 1 Item f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.  

3. Erasure of data and storage period

The personal data of the data subject is erased or anonymised as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage beyond this period may occur if stipulated by the European or national legislators in regulations, laws or other provisions of Union law to which the data controller is subject. The anonymisation or erasure of the data also takes place when a storage term stipulated by the aforementioned norms expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
