The legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. This also applies to the implementation of steps that are required prior to entering into a contract.
Where the processing of personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the legal basis is Article 6(1)(c) GDPR.
Where the processing of personal data is required in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, the legal basis is Article 6(1)(d) GDPR.
Where processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, the legal basis for processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
The data subject’s personal data are erased or blocked as soon as the purpose for which they were stored ceases to apply. They may be stored beyond this if provided for by the European or national legislature in regulations within Union law, in acts of law or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be barred or erased if a storage period prescribed by these provisions expires, unless there is a continued need to store the data to enter into a contract or for the performance of a contract.

The data are also stored in our system’s logfiles. These data are not stored together with other personal data pertaining to the user.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and logfiles is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
The system needs to temporarily store the IP address in order to make the website available to the user’s computer. This necessitates the storage of the user’s IP address for the duration of the session. Logfiles are used for storage in order to ensure that the website can function properly. We also need the data in order to ensure that our IT systems are properly secure. The data are not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context. These purposes also include our legitimate interests in data processing pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer required in order to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. Where the data are stored in order to make the website available, this takes place when the respective session is ended. Data that are stored in logfiles are erased after seven days at the latest in this case.
It is vital to store the data in order to make the website available, and the data must be stored in logfiles in order to operate the website. Users therefore have no possibility to file an objection.

The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer required in order to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. With regard to the personal data from the input screen of the contact form and the data that were forwarded by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has been ended. The conversation is considered ended when the circumstances permit the conclusion that the matter in question has been finally clarified.
Users may withdraw their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. Users contacting us by e-mail may withdraw consent to the storage of their personal data at any time – by post or e-mail. The conversation may not be continued in such cases. All personal data that were stored during contact are erased in such cases.
