2. Legal basis

The basis for the collection and processing of personal data is always the most recent European legislation. All of the legal bases referred to below can be found in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). One or more of the following legal bases may apply according to the purpose of the data collection:

  • Consent – Basis: Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit. a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means that: consent is an expression of a wish (e.g. ‘I agree that…’). Consent may be given either in written form as a declaration or as an another, unequivocal confirming action. Irrespective of the means by which it is given, consent must always be voluntary. In addition, consent must also apply to a very specific purpose and be unequivocal in expressing that the data subject agrees to the processing of personal data which relate to him/her. Furthermore, the data subject must be sufficiently informed and understand the consent.
  • Necessity for fulfilment of contract or execution of preparatory measures – Basis: Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit. b GDPR
This means that: the data are either required for us to be able to satisfy our contractual obligations towards you or we require the data to prepare for conclusion of a contract with you.
  • Processing for satisfaction of legal obligations – Basis: Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit. c GDPR
This means that: legislation or other (national/official) provisions (for example) require us to process the data.
  • Processing for the safeguarding of legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6, Paragraph 1, lit. f GDPR
This means that: the processing of the data is required to safeguard our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms, which require the protection of personal data, prevail. 

     

3. Rights of the data subject

You are the data subject if the personal data are your data. As such, you are entitled to the following rights with respect to the processing of data by us, to the extent delimited by the respective articles of the General Data Protection Regulation:

  • Right to information in accordance with Article 15 GDPR
  • Right to correction in accordance with Article 16 GDPR
  • Right to deletion (‘right to be forgotten’) in accordance with Article 17 GDPR
  • Right to restriction on processing in accordance with Article 18 GDPR
  • Right to data portability in accordance with Article 20 GDPR
  • Right to object in accordance with Article 21 GDPR

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory body, in particular in the EU Member State of your residence, of your workplace or of the location of the suspected violation, if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data is in violation of the GDPR.

 

4. Deletion of data and retention period

The personal data of data subjects shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for their retention no longer applies. Data may still be retained if European or national legislation in harmonised regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject stipulates that they be retained. Blocking or deletion of data may also occur when the retention period specified by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue to retain the data for contract conclusion or contract fulfilment.

d) Retention period
The log files are deleted from the system after a maximum of six weeks. If there is a need to retain the data for the aforementioned purpose on account of specific events, further retention is possible. In any event, as outlined above, the IP addresses of users shall be anonymised to prevent assignment of data to a specific user.

The purpose of the data storage is contact at the request of the communication partner.

d) Retention period
The data shall be retained for as long as is required to deal with and close the enquiry. Insofar as these are commercial letters subject to commercial and tax legislation, they shall also be retained for the statutory retention period.

If the user contacts us by e-mail, he/she may object to the retention of his/her personal data at any time.

In that case, it will not be possible to continue the conversation.
