III.     General information about data processing

1.        Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we only process personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of the personal data of our users is regularly only carried out after the consent of the user has been given. An exception applies in cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

 

2.        Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3.        Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or made unavailable as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be made unavailable or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the data controller, the data controller is obliged to communicate this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the data controller.

6.        Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without hindrance from the data controller to whom the personal data has been provided, provided that

(1)       the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and

(2)       the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one data controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other people.

The right to data portability will not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the fulfilment of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller.

7.        Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right of objection by means of automated procedures based on technical specifications.

8.        Right to retract your declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to retract your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. This revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until the revocation.

9.        Automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

(1)       is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the data controller,

(2)       is authorised by legislation of the Union or the Member States to which the data controller is subject and that legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or

(3)       occurs with your express consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller will take reasonable steps to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the data controller, to express your own point of view and to contest the decision.

10.    Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy in accordance with Art. 78 GDPR.

The competent supervisory authority for us is:
