1. Scope of personal data processing
In principle, we collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users are regularly carried out only after their consent. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, the provision of Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall apply as the legal basis. For processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a contracting party, the provision of Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR applies as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the legal basis is the provision of Article 6(1)(c) GDPR. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, the provision of Article 6(d) GDPR shall apply. In cases where processing is necessary for the protection of the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party, and where the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the primary interest, the provision of Article 6(1)(f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall apply as the legal basis.
3. Data deletion and data retention period
The personal data of the individual will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose for which they were stored no longer exists. In addition, the storage of data is also possible when it is prescribed by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other rules applicable to the data processor, i.e., the person responsible for the processing of the data. Blocking or erasure of data shall also take place when the retention period prescribed on the basis of the applicable standards has expired, unless there is a need to continue to store the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

8. Rights of the data subject
In the case of processing of personal data relating to you, you are the person affected and have the following rights in relation to the person responsible:
1. Right to information
You can ask the person responsible to provide you with a confirmation of whether personal data relating to you is being processed by us. If it is being processed, you can request the following information from the person responsible:
(1) the purpose for which your personal data is being processed;
(2) the categories of your personal data that are being processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data have been or will be disclosed;
(4) the proposed retention period for your personal data or, if this information cannot be provided, the criteria for determining the retention period;
(5) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of your personal data in relation to the right to restriction of processing by the controller or the right to lodge a complaint against such processing;
(6) the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
(7) any available information about the source of the data, if the personal data are not obtained or collected from the data subject;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Article 6(1) and (4) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and – at least in these cases – relevant information on the logic and scope applied and the desired effects of such processing on the data subject.
You have the right to request information on whether your personal data is transferred to a third country or an international organisation. In this respect, you may request appropriate safeguards in accordance with Article 46 of the GDPR.
2. Right to rectification. You have the right to have your data rectified and/or completed by the person responsible if the personal data relating to you is incorrect or incomplete. The person responsible is obliged to rectify the data immediately.
3. Right to restriction of processing. You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data under the following conditions:
(1) if you contest the accuracy of your personal data for a specified period of time, which allows the regulator to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) if the processing is unlawful, namely if you object to the erasure of the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) if the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you will need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
(4) where you have lodged an objection to the processing of personal data for processing pursuant to Article 46(1) of the GDPR and it has not yet been decided whether the legitimate grounds of the data subject outweigh your grounds. If the processing of personal data has been restricted, the data may – in addition to being stored – only be disclosed to others with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of public interest of substantial importance for the Union or one of the Member States. If the processing of personal data has been restricted on the basis of the above conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is eliminated.
4. Right to deletion
a) Obligation to delete
You may request the person responsible to delete your personal data without delay, and the person responsible must delete the data immediately if:
(1) your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
(2) you withdraw your consent to the processing of the data in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR and there are no other legal grounds for the processing;
(3) you object to the processing of the data in accordance with Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no prior valid grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing of the data in accordance with Article 21(2) of the GDPR;
(4) if your personal data have been unlawfully processed;
(5) if the deletion of your personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the data subject is subject.
(6) if your personal data was obtained in connection with information society services made available pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR.
a) Information to third parties. If the person responsible has made your personal data publicly available and is obliged to delete it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, then the person responsible shall, taking into account the technical means available and the costs of implementation, take appropriate steps to inform the processors responsible for processing the personal data that you, as the affected person, have requested them to delete any links to such personal data or copies or replicas of such personal data.
b) Exceptions. There is no right to deletion if the processing is necessary for
(1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) the performance of a legal obligation required by Union or Member State law to which the data subject is subject, or the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of official authority vested in the data subject;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
(4) for archival purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical purposes or statistical purposes, in accordance with Article 89(1) of the GDPR, where the right referred to in subparagraph (a) would be likely to frustrate or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
5. Right to information. If you have exercised your right to rectification, deletion or restriction of the data processing in relation to the person responsible, the latter is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data have been disclosed of this rectification or deletion or restriction of the data processing, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate costs. You also have the right to be informed of these persons or recipients in relation to the person responsible.
6. Right to data portability. You have the right to receive the personal data you have provided to the Data Protection Officer in a structured, plain and machine-readable format, where technically feasible. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another person responsible without hindering the person responsible to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that
(1) the data processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or pursuant to a contract referred to in Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR;
(2) the data processing is carried out by automated means. In exercising this right, you also have the right to have your personal data
to be transferred directly from the person responsible to another person responsible, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons shall not be affected. The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority which has been delegated to a person responsible.
7. Right to objection
You have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data relating to the provision of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR.
The person responsible shall no longer process your personal data unless he or she can demonstrate the existence of legitimate and compelling reasons for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. If your personal data relate to processes for the performance of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data relating to the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct advertising. If you object to processing for the purposes of direct advertising, your personal data will no longer be processed for those purposes. You have the possibility, notwithstanding the provisions of Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated processes using technical specifications.
8. Right to revoke the data protection declaration. You have the right to revoke the data protection declaration at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
9. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. Notwithstanding any other remedies available to you in the context of administrative or judicial proceedings, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is contrary to the provisions of the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of judicial redress in accordance with Article 78 of the GDPR.
