3 General information about data processing
3.1 Scope of personal data processing
Our approach is essentially to process personal data only to the extent that is necessary for the provision of our services. Personal data are generally processed only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases in which there are practical reasons why prior consent can not be obtained, and the law permits processing of the data.
3.2 Regulations governing the processing of personal data
The legal regulation which governs obtaining a data subject's consent for the processing of their personal data is Art. 6 (1) a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, or DSGVO in German).
The legal regulation which governs the processing of personal data necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party is Art. 6 (1) b of the GDPR. This also applies to processing operations which are required for pre-contractual formalities.
In cases where personal data must be processed to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the applicable legal regulation is Art. 6 (1) c of the GDPR.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require personal data to be processed, the applicable legal regulation is Art. 6 (1) d of the GDPR.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party, and where the data subject's own interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not prevail over the aforementioned interests, the applicable legal regulation is Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR.
3.3 Data deletion and storage duration
Data subjects' personal data will be deleted or locked as soon as the purpose of the storage is satisfied. In addition, such storage may be provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Data are also deleted or locked when a storage period prescribed by the specified standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data in order to complete or fulfil a contract.
3.4 Disclosure to third parties
We transfer your personal data to third parties only where necessary for the fulfilment of contracts with your company.
The legal regulation governing the data transmission is Art. 6 (1) b of the GDPR.
An exception to this is the use of Google Maps. Data is transmitted to Google Inc. See section 7.
