Legal basis for the processing of personal data

As a provider, we may only process personal data of website visitors if one of the conditions explained below exists as a legal basis:

If we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing processes of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

For the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the data processing.

Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply.

Storage may take place beyond this if this has been provided for by European or national laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject.

Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.


When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), your information will be processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b) DSGVO (so-called pre-contractual measure).

We delete the requests if they are no longer necessary. We review this necessity every two years. Furthermore, the legal archiving obligations apply.

Legal basis

The legal basis for the processing of this data are so-called pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO

Legal basis

Logging is used for access control and monitoring of technical processes and their optimization. In addition, this data is used in accordance with § 76 BDSG to check the processing procedures under data protection aspects.

The data is not passed on to third parties, except to law enforcement authorities following a court order in the event of an incident.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, or after the legally specified deletion period has been reached.

Consequently, the user has no right of objection.
