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 required by statutory provisions.

Legal basis for processing personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) GDPR and UK GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Article 6(1)(b) GDPR and UK GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required to fulfil 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 fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR and UK 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(1)(d) GDPR and UK GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that it is necessary to process personal data for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the person responsible, Article 6(1)(e) GDPR and UK GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR and UK GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data Erasure and Storage Duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the international, European or national legislators in privacy regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The 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 fulfilment of a contract.
