No Data Transmission to Third Parties

Your data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so or you explicitly consent to it. Where external service providers come into contact with your personal data, we have taken legal, technical and organizational measures and carried out regular checks to ensure that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws.

Legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data

As far as we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of your personal data.

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

Beyond this, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject.
