II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of Processing

We collect and use the personal information of our users fundamentally only to the extent necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of the personal information of our users is done regularly only with the consent of the user. There is an exception in such cases in which prior acquisition of consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted under the law.

To the extent we acquire consent from you for processing procedures, article 6 (1) (a) serves as the legal basis.

If processing of data is required for the fulfilment of a legal requirement to which we are subject, article 6 (1) (c) is the legal basis.

If the processing is required to protect a vested interest of our company or of a third party and does not outweigh your interests and basic rights of the first listed interest, article 6 (1) (f) is the legal basis.

3. Data deletion and duration of storage

Your data will be deleted or locked as soon as the reason for storage no longer applies. Saving may also occur if required by European or national ordinances, laws or other provisions to which we are subject. Locking or deletion of the data is also done when a prescribed storage period lapses, as set forth by the standards listed, unless there is a requirement for further storage of the data for concluding a contract or fulfilment of a contract.
