3. What purposes your data is processed for and for what legal basis?

We process the aforementioned personal data in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):
When processing personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This regulation also includes processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

With regards to the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1, lit. c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the conduct of our business activities.

Within our company, only those persons and departments receive your personal data who need it to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations.

We transfer data to third parties if we need them to fulfill a contractual obligation.

7. Statutory or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data as well as possible consequences of non-provision

We would like to point out that the provision of personal data is required by law in certain cases (e.g. tax regulations) or can result from a contractual arrangement (e.g. information on the contractual partner). For example, it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that the person concerned/the contractual partner must provide their personal data so that we can process their request (e.g. order) at all. There is an obligation to provide personal data, especially when concluding contracts. If no personal data is provided in this case, the contract cannot be concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject can contact our data protection officer or the person responsible for processing. The data protection officer or the person responsible for processing then informs the data subject whether the provision of the required personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract and whether the concerns of the data subject result in an obligation to provide the personal data or what consequences a failure to provide the requested data has for the person concerned.
