We will observe any statutory disclosure duties as a matter of course in accordance with GDPR Art. 13 Abs. 3 and Art. 14 Abs. 4.

What is the legal basis for how we handle your personal data?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is provided by General Data Protection Regulation Art. 6 GDPR – unless other specific laws apply. In this context, the following possibilities may be considered:

If we have received and are processing your personal data on the basis of your consent given, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time for the future.

If we are processing data on the basis of a balancing of interests, you as the party concerned have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with the legal requirements of Art. 21 GDPR.

We store any data for as long as this is necessary for the specific purpose in question.

In so far as there is a legal requirement to store data – for example in commercial law or tax law – the relevant personal data will be stored for the period specified by law. Once the period specified by law has expired, there will be a review as to whether there is a need for the continued processing of the data in question. If there is no necessity for continued storage, the data is deleted.

GDPR, or if we are legally obliged to share the data, or if you have given your consent for us to do so.
