  3. General information on data processing

    1. Scope of processing of personal data

    We process personal data from our users only where this is necessary in order to provide a functioning website and to provide our content and services. As a rule, personal data concerning our users is processed only when the user has given consent. An exception to this rule applies in cases in which prior receipt of consent is not possible for practical reasons and processing of data is permitted by the statutory regulations.

    2. Legal basis for processing of personal data

    If we receive consent to the processing of personal data from the data subject, the legal basis shall be formed by article 6(1), sentence 1(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    When processing personal data that is required in order to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, article 6(1), sentence 1(b) of the GDPR shall form the legal basis.

    If it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, article 6(1), sentence 1(c) of the GDPR shall form the legal basis.

    In the event that processing of personal data is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, article 6(1), sentence 1(d) of the GDPR shall form the legal basis.

    If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party and these interests are not outweighed by the interests and fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, article 6(1), sentence 1(f) of the GDPR shall form the legal basis.

    3. Data deletion and duration of storage

    The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage of this data may exceed this period where provided for by European or national lawmakers – in compliance with Union law – in ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Data shall also be blocked or deleted when a retention period prescribed by the specified norms expires, unless it is necessary to continue storing the data for the purposes of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

Where processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

  11. For the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

    5. Right to notification

    If you have exercised your right to obtain rectification, erasure or restriction of processing from the data controller, the data controller is obliged to communicate this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

    You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the data controller.

    6. Right to data portability

  13. The processing is carried out by automated means.

    In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data in question transmitted directly from one data controller to another, where technically feasible. Exercising this right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

    The right to data portability does not apply for the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller.

    7. Right to object

    You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on article 6(1), sentence 1(e) or (f) of the GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

    8. Right to withdraw your declaration of consent to processing of personal data

    You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

    9. Automated individual decision-making, 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 shall not apply if the decision:
