II. General Information on Data Processing

1. Scope of Processing of Personal Data

We only process personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users regularly only takes place with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for 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 required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required 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, Art. 6 para. 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, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data Deletion and Storage Duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage can also take place if this is provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws, or other provisions to which the responsible party is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

9. Automated Decision in Individual Cases, Including Profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

  • Is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the responsible party,
  • Is permissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or of the Member States to which the responsible party is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
  • Is made with your explicit consent. However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests. In the cases referred to in points (1) and (3), the responsible party shall take appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible party, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

Right to Complain to a Supervisory Authority Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace, or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
