II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of personal data processing

In general, we only process personal data of our users as far as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is done regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for processing of personal data

In case we obtain the consent of the data subject regarding the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data that is necessary for the compliance of a contract to which the contracting party is the data subject, Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing steps that are necessary for the provision of precontractual actions. As far as 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. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. d 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) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and storage duration
