2. General information on data processing
2.1 Scope oft he processing of personal data
When you contact us as a customer or interested party, we collect personal data. This happens when you are interested in our products, contact us by e-mail or telephone or when you use our products and services in the context of existing business relationships.
In these contexts, we process personal data, e.g. first and last name, address, email address, telephone number.
In addition, we process contractual data (e.g. subject matter of contract, term, customer category) and payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history) of our customers, prospective customers and business partners for the provision of contractual services and for the purpose of service and customer care.
In addition, we process personal data such as communication and address data for marketing and advertising purposes as well as for sending Christmas cards, invitations to events and newsletters.
2.2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
If a processing of personal data is based on the consent of the data subject, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. If personal data are processed in order to fulfil a contract with the data subject, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. If we process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6 (1) c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If we process data to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not more important, Art. 6 (1) f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
2.3. Cooperation with data processors and third parties
If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties), transmit it to them or grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. a transmission to payment service providers required for the performance of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR), consent, a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts). If we commission third parties with the processing of data on the basis of a so-called “data processing agreement”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.
2.4. Transfers to third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) or if this is done in the context of using third-party services, this is only done if it is done to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations, on the basis of consent, due to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. We process data subject to legal or contractual permissions only if the requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are met: Data is therefore only processed if, for example, special guarantees exist, such as official recognition of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU (e.g. adequacy decision) or compliance with officially recognised contractual obligations (so-called standard contractual clauses).
2.5. Data deletion and storage period
As soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply, personal data of a data subject will be deleted or its processing restricted (“blocked”). If European or national regulations, laws or other provisions to which we are subject require longer storage, the personal data will be stored in accordance with these legal provisions for longer than the original purpose intended.
2.6. Data deletion upon revocation
All data collected up to the point of revocation will be deleted immediately – unless a legal requirement requires retention.
