We generally only collect and use the personal data of our users insofar as this is required in order to provide a fully functioning website together with our content and services. The collection and use of the personal data of our users only takes place on a regular basis after consent has been granted by the user. Exceptions to this rule only apply in cases in which we are unable to obtain consent in advance for factual reasons or the processing of the data is permitted by legal provisions.

When we obtain the consent of a data subject to process their personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. an of the GDPR (European General Data Protection Regulation) forms the legal basis.
When we process personal data that is required in order to fulfil a contract in which the data subject is the contracting party, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR is the legal basis. This also applies to processing activities required for the completion of pre-contractual measures.
If we need to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR forms the legal basis.
In the case that the processing of personal data is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. d GDPR is the legal basis.
If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and these interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing.

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage of the data no longer applies.
