The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle - unless there are still specific legal provisions - Art. 6 DSGVO. In particular, the following possibilities come into consideration here: 

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO) 
  • Data processing for the performance of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO) 
  • Data processing on the basis of a balance of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO)

If personal data is processed on the basis of consent from you, you have the right to revoke consent at any time with effect for the future to us. 

If we process data on the basis of a balancing of interests, you have the right as a data subject to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 DSGVO. 

If you wish to exercise your right to object, a notification in text form is sufficient. You are therefore welcome to write to us, send a fax or contact us by e-mail. You can find our contact details at the top of this privacy policy or in our website imprint. 

How long is the data stored?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

In so far as there are statutory retention obligations, the personal data concerned is stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After expiry of the retention obligation, it is checked whether there is a further necessity for processing. If there is no longer a necessity, the data is deleted.

In principle, we carry out an examination of data towards the end of a calendar year with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the amount of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific types of data or purposes of processing.
