In order to fulfil our obligation to provide information in accordance with Art. 12 ff. of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are pleased to provide you with the following information on data protection:
Who is responsible for data processing?
Responsible in terms of the data protection law is

Which of your data will be processed by us? And for what purposes?
If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we have received or collected it.
Data processing for other purposes can only be considered if the legal provisions required in this respect pursuant to Art. 6 par. 4 of the GDPR are available. In this case, we will of course comply with any information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 par. 3 of the GDPR and Art. 14 par. 4 of the GDPR.
What is the legal basis for this?
The legal basis for the processing of personal data in general – insofar as there are no specific legal provisions – is Art. 6 of the GDPR. The following options are particularly worth considering:
- Consent (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a of the GDPR)
- Data processing for the performance of contracts (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. b of the GDPR)
- Data processing based on a balance of interests (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f of the GDPR)
- Data processing for compliance with a legal obligation (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. c of the GDPR)
If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.
If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 of the GDPR.
How long is the data stored?
We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.
Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist – e.g. in commercial law or tax law – the personal data concerned will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After expiry of the retention obligation, the system checks whether there is a further requirement for processing. If a requirement no longer exists, the data will be deleted.
In principle, we regularly review data with a view to the need for further processing. On the basis of the amount of data, this check is made with regard to specific types of data or processing purposes.
Of course you can always (see below) request information about the personal data stored by us and, in the event of a non-existent requirement, request that the data be deleted or that processing be restricted.
To which recipients is the data passed on?
Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, if the transfer on the basis of a balance of interests in terms of Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f of the GDPR is permissible, if we are legally obliged to pass it on or if you have given your consent in this respect.
Where is the data processed?
Your personal data will be processed by us exclusively in the Federal Republic of Germany. The transfer of personal data to a third country is excluded.
Your rights as “data subject”
You have the right to request information about your personal data processed by us.
If a request for information is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may require proof from you that you are the person you claim to be.
Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or erasure or restriction of the processing, insofar as you are legally entitled to do so.
You also have a right to object against the processing within the framework of legal requirements. The same applies to the right to data portability.
In particular, pursuant to Art. 21 par. 1 and 2 of the GDPR, you have a right to object against the processing of your data in connection with direct marketing, if this is based on a balance of interests.
