2. Collection and Storage of Personal Data and Type and Purpose of Utilisation


Legal basis of data procession for which we demand a consent with a certain processing purpose is always Art. 6 Abs. 1 S1 lit. a DSGVO (German data protection law). If data procession of personal data is related to the fulfillment of a contract (performance of services) of which you are a contracting party, data procession is based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 S.1 lit. b DSGVO. This legal basis also applies to any case of pre-contractual activities (e.g. enquiries about our products and services).

If our company is subject to any legal obligations that require procession of personal data which has its legal basis in EU law or laws of the memberstate we are subject to, data procession is legally based on Art. 6 Abs. 1S. 1 lit c DSGVO. Furtheron data procession can be based on Art.6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. d DSGVO if vital interests are touched upon ( danger to life and limb and/or catastrophes). Apart from that, data procession can also be  legally based on Art.6 Abs.1 S.1 lit f DSGVO. In this case we will notify you of our legally justified interest individually.

The duration of data storage depends on our commercial and tax law obligations to store data. Legal basis is Art 6 Abs. 1 S. 2 lit c DSGVO.
