D General information about data processing

1. Scope of processing personal data
As a general rule, we only process our users’ personal data, if it is necessary for providing a functional website, as well as our contents and services. The processing of our users’ personal data usually only occurs after the user provides consent. An exception applies in such cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted on the basis of statutory provisions.

2. Legal basis for processing personal data
If we obtain consent from the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 Subsection 1 Letter a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. For processing personal data, which is required for the fulfilment of a contract, to which the data subject is a contracting party, Art. 6 Subsection 1 Letter b GDPR serves as a legal basis. This also applies to processing activities, which are required to perform pre-contractual measures. If processing of personal data is necessary for fulfilling a legal obligation, which our company is governed by, Art. 6 Subsection 1 Letter c GDPR serves as a legal basis. In the event that vital interests
of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Subsection 1 Letter d GDPR serves as the legal foundation. If the processing is required to preserve a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 Subsection 1 Letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the data subjects are deleted or blocked, as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, storage may occur, if this has been prescribed by the European or national legislator in Union law ordinances, laws or other regulations, by which the controller is governed. Blocking or deletion of the data also occurs, if a storage period, which is prescribed by the standards referred to, expires, unless a necessity exists for continued storage of the data for the
conclusion of a contract or contract fulfilment.

7. Right to object
For reasons, which arise from your specific situation, you have the right to file an objection to the processing of your personal data, on the basis of Art. 6 Subsection 1 letter e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on this provision.

9. Automated decision on a case-by-case basis, including profiling
You have the right to be subjected to a decision, which is not exclusively based on automated processing - including profiling - which develops legal effect with respect to you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply, if the decision
(1) for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the controller is required,
(2) is admissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or the Member States, which the controller is governed by and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures for preserving your rights and freedoms, as well as your legitimate interests or
(3) occurs with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on specific categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 Subsection 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 Subsection 2 Letter a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms, as well as your legitimate interests. With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take appropriate measures for preserving the rights and freedoms, as well as your legitimate interests, which at least includes the right to influence a person to intervene on behalf of the controller, to present one’s own perspective and to contest the decision.
