2. General information on data processing
2.1. Scope of processing of personal data
If you visit our website without otherwise providing us with information, we collect only the information that your browser transmits to our web server.
In general, we only process personal data if this is necessary to provide a functional website, as well as our content and services. Personal data is only processed with the prior consent of the user. An exception applies in cases where practical reasons make it impossible to obtain a consent in advance and legal regulations permit the processing of the data.
2.2 Legal basis for the processing
If we obtain a consent from the data subject for purposes of conducting processing operations, Article 6(1)(a) EU GDPR applies as the legal basis.
For processing personal data necessary for performing an agreement to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR applies as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are required in order to conduct pre-contractual steps.
If personal data must be processed in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) applies as the legal basis.
If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR applies as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, and this interest is not outweighed by the interests and fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR applies as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company consists of performing our business activity. It also includes using server log files, cookies and Google Analytics.
2.3 Routine erasure of personal data
We process and store the data subject's personal data only for as long as necessary to accomplish the purpose for which they were collected.
