Insofar as we obtain your consent for the processing of your personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR as the legal basis for processing. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR as the legal basis for processing.
data deletion and storage duration
Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by ordinance, law or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
