6. Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. A GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, for example for a supply of goods or other service,Thus, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

Is our company subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations,Thus, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR if the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail.

Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, he considered that there could be a legitimate interest if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

7. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or as provided by theEuropean directives and regulations or any other legislator in laws or regulations.

11. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally, a contract may require that an individual provides us with personally identifiable information that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee explains the affected person on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or requires the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and the consequences of non-provision of personal data.

12. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
