Thank you for visiting our website. Dealing with your data securely is particularly important for us. That is why we want to provide you with detailed information on how your data is used when you visit our website.
Legal basis for processing
Our company uses Article 6 (S. 1) letter a of the GDPR as the legal basis for processing data for which we received permission for a specific processing purpose. If personal data has to be processed in order to comply with a contract for which the contractual partner is the affected person, as is the case, for example, when processing the data required to deliver goods or provide a service for compensation, this processing is based on Article 6 (S. 1) letter b of the GDPR. This also applies for processing that is needed to perform pre-contractual activities, such as enquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes processing personal data necessary, for example to fulfil fiscal obligations, processing is based on Article 6 (S. 1) letter c of the GDPR. In rare cases, processing personal data may be required in order to protect vital interests of the affected person or another private individual, Article 6 (S. 1) letter d of the GDPR. Finally, processing can also be based on Article 6 (S. 1) letter f of the GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing which is not covered by any of the other legal bases if processing is required to uphold a justified interest of our company or a third party to the extent that the affected party’s interests, basic rights and basic freedoms are not more important.
