III. general information on data processing
1. the scope of processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we process personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. Personal data will only be processed with the user's consent or in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. data erasure and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data is also blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

2. legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

4. duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended.

If the processing of personal data relating to users has been restricted, such data may be processed, with the exception of storage, only with their consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction on processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, users shall be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

 

Right of cancellation
Obligation to delete
Users may request the controller to delete personal data concerning them without delay and the controller is obliged to delete such data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) personal data concerning users are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) Users revoke their consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(4) for archival, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to information
Where users have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or limitation of processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom personal data relating to users have been disclosed of such rectification, erasure or limitation of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
Users have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

 

Right to data portability
Users have the right to receive the personal data concerning them that they have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

In exercising this right, users also have the right to obtain that personal data concerning them be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, in so far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data transferability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Right of objection
Users have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning them, which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f of the DPA; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process personal data relating to users unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing which outweigh their interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
Where personal data relating to users are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, users shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to them for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

Users have the possibility to exercise their right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, without prejudice to Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

Right of withdrawal of the data protection consent
Users have the right to revoke their declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. Revocation of the consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

 

Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
Users have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect vis-à-vis them or significantly affects them in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between them and the person responsible
(2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the person responsible is subject and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard his rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
(3) with their express consent.

However, such decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DPA, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DPA applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and their legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms and their legitimate interests, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

Right to appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, users have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which they are resident, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if they consider that the processing of personal data relating to them infringes the DPA.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 DPA.
