An exception applies to cases in which prior consent can not be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2.    Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 section 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis. In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 section 1 lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis.

This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions. Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that is subject to our company, Art. 6 section 1 lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 section 1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first interest, Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.

3.    Data erasure and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted. In addition, such storage may be provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which our company is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.
