General information about data protection

 

1. Scope of processing personal data
I collect and use the personal data of a user only to the extent that this is required for providing a functioning website as well as for the content and services contained therein. The collection and processing of the user's personal data shall be conducted on a regular basis only after the user has provided his/her consent. An exception shall apply for cases in which acquiring prior consent proves impossible for practical reasons and processing this data is permitted in accordance with the valid legal requirements.

 

2. Legal basis for processing personal data
To the extent that I acquire consent from the data subject for processing his/her personal data, article 6 (1) point (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis for processing this personal data.

When processing personal data is required in order to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, article 6 (1) point (b) of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This shall also apply for data processing that is required for conducting pre-contractual measures.

To the extent that processing personal data is required for fulfilling a legal obligation, to which my company is subject, article 6 (1) point (c) of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person render the processing of personal data necessary, article 6 (1) point (d) of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

If data processing is required to protect the justified interests of my company or of a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, article 6 (1) point (f) of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

 

3. Erasure of data and period of storage
The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage has expired. Storage is only permissible beyond this period if prescribed by European or national legislatures through EU regulations, laws or other provisions, to which the data controller is subject. The blocking or deletion of data shall also take place when the storage period prescribed by the aforementioned norms has expired, unless the necessity to continue storing the data exists for the sake of entering into or fulfilling a contract.

In exercising this right to data portability pursuant to paragraph 1, you shall have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one data controller to another, where technically feasible. The rights and freedoms of other persons may not be infringed upon by this.

In relation to the cases specified in (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
