Further Notes

Routine Erasure and Blocking of Personal Data

The controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the storage purpose or as required by the European directives and regulations or any other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulations or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Legal Basis for Data Processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data, or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital, or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in the interests of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites that lie outside the responsibility of the website operator, liability would only arise in the event that the website operator has knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent the use in the event of illegal content. The website operator hereby expressly declares that at the time the link was set, no illegal content was discernible on the linked pages.
