II. general principles
1. scope and legal bases of the processing
We process personal data only in accordance with legal requirements. In particular, personal data is only processed if you have consented or if the processing is otherwise legally permitted.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
2. disclosure of data
Within our company, your data is only accessed by those departments that need it to protect our legitimate interests or to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations or to respond to your inquiries. In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data, who process data on our behalf as order processors (e.g. for central IT services or the hosting of our website). Service providers acting as processors on our behalf may only use the data in accordance with our instructions. In this case, we are legally responsible for appropriate data protection precautions at the companies we commission. The companies have been carefully selected by us, commissioned in writing in accordance with the legal requirements, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.
Your personal data will only be transferred to third parties if this is legally permissible, in particular if

3. duration of storage and deletion of data
We process and store personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of processing.

In this case, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling if it is related to direct advertising.
