III. General information on data processing
1. Scope of the processing of personal data
We process the personal data of the users of our webpages only to the extent necessary for the provision of a functioning website and for our content and services.
We make every effort to store your personal data in a way that it is not accessible to third parties by taking appropriate technical and organisational measures.
Our employees and the service providers appointed by us are bound by a duty of confidentiality and are under an obligation to comply with the provisions of the applicable data protection regulations.
The processing of our users’ personal data takes place regularly and only with user consent.
An exception shall apply in cases where obtaining consent beforehand is not possible for factual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by law.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Where we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.
In the case of processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This shall also apply for processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Where the processing of personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require a processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. d of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
If the processing is required in order to maintain 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 override the first-named interest, Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. f of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Data erasure and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply.
Storage can also take place where required by European or national legislature in Union regulations, laws or other rules to which the controller is subject.
Blocking or erasure of the data is also carried out when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for continued storage of the data for entering into, or performance of, a contract.

The right to erasure shall not apply if the processing is required
(1) for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. h and i as well as Art. 9 Para. 3 of the GDPR;

(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You have the right vis-à-vis the controller to be informed about these recipients.
6. Right to data portability
You shall have the right to receive the personal data relating to you which you provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
You shall also have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data was provided, where
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR or Art. 9 Para 2 lit. a of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right, you shall furthermore have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons shall not be adversely affected by this.
The right to data portability shall not apply to 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 controller.
7. Right to object
You shall 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 Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e or f of the GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data relating to you unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves for establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where personal data relating to you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
Where you object to the processing for purposes of direct marketing, the personal data relating to you shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

8. Right to withdraw your declaration of consent made under data protection law
You shall have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent made under data protection law 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 shall 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
(1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the data controller,
(2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or
(3) is based on your explicit consent.
However, these decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Art. 9 Para. 1 of the GDPR, unless Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a or g of the GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your own point of view and to contest the decision.
10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 of the GDPR.
