3. General information on data processing
3.1. Scope of processing personal data
In principle, we only process personal data of our users if it is necessary for providing a functional website and our contents and services. Personal data of our users is processed regularly only with the user's consent. In such cases, an exception is made when getting prior consent is not possible due to practical reasons and data processing is permitted by the legal regulations.
3.2. The legal basis for processing personal data
As long as we get consent for processing operations of personal data from the person concerned, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a EU-General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
For processing personal data which is required for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is party, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This is also applicable for processing operations, which are required for implementing pre-contractual measures.
If the processing of personal data is required in order to comply with a legal obligation incumbent on our company, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person necessitate processing of personal data, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If data processing is required for protecting a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, and if the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the interests of our company or the third party, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
3.3. Data deletion and duration of storage
The personal data of the person in question is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to be relevant. Personal data can also be stored if its storage was stipulated by the European or national legislators in Union regulations, laws or other provisions which the responsible party has to follow. Data can also be deleted or blocked if a storage duration stipulated by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is need for storing the data further for conclusion of a contract or for performance of a contract.

With regard to the cases mentioned in (1) and (3), the responsible party takes appropriate measures, to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, which include at least the right to get an intervention of a person from the responsible party, for explaining their point of view and for challenging the decision.
