3. GENERAL INFORMATION ON DATA PROCESSING

3.1 Scope of processing personal data and possible legal basis for data processing

3.1.1 Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis to obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of their data.

3.1.2 As for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is party, Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual activities.

3.1.3 When it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

3.1.4 If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

3.1.5 If the processing of data is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or that of a third party, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest of the former, Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR will serve as the legal basis for the processing of data.

3.2 Data removal and storage duration

3.2.1 Your personal data will be erased as soon as the purpose of its storage has been accomplished. Additional storage may occur if it was provided for by the European or national legislator within the EU regulations, law, or other relevant regulations to which the data controller is subject. Erasure of the data also takes place when the storage period stipulated by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to prolong the storage of the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling the respective contract.

4. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT

When your personal data is processed, you are subsequently a data subject in the sense of the GDPR and have the following rights:

4.1 Right to information

4.1.1 You may request from the data controller to confirm whether your personal data is processed by them. If such processing is the case, you can request the following information from the data controller:

(b) The categories of personal data being processed;

(c) The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you have been disclosed or are still being disclosed;

4.3 Right to the restriction of processing

4.3.2 If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data may – with the exception of data storage – only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest, interest to the Union, or a Member State.

4.3.3 If the processing has been restricted according to the beforementioned conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is lifted.

4.3.4 Your right to restrict the processing may be limited where it is likely that such restriction will render impossible or seriously impede the achievement of scientific or statistical purposes and that such limitation is necessary for the achievement of scientific or statistical purposes.

4.4 Right to erasure

The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary

(e) to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims.

4.5 Right to information

4.5.1 If you have the right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing over the data controller, they are obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of the correction or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

(b) the processing is done by automated means.

4.6.2 In exercising this right, you also have the right to maintain that your personal data relating to you are transmitted directly from one person to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons shall not be affected.

4.6.3 The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the data controller.

4.7 Right to object

4.7.1 Subjective to your situation, you have, at any time, the right to object against the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

4.7.3 If the personal data relating to you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data in regard to such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct mail.

4.8 Right to revoke the data protection consent declaration

4.8.1 You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by sending a notification to [email protected] . The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
