In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 b) (DS-GVO) serves as the legal basis. This scheme also covers processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual actions.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, then Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) (DS-GVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing.

We generally do not sell or lend user data. Transmission to third parties beyond the scope described in this privacy policy will only take place if necessary to complete the requested service.

We transmit data only if there is a legal obligation to do so. This is the case when government agencies (such as law enforcement agencies) request written information or a judicial order.

A transfer of personal data to so-called third countries outside the EU / EEA area does not take place.

10. Legal or contractual regulation for the provision of personal data and possible consequences of non-provision

We point out that the provision of personal data in certain cases (such as tax regulations) is required by law or may result from contractual arrangements (such as information about the contracting party). For example, it may be necessary for a contract to conclude that the data subject / contractor must provide his / her personal data in order for us to be able to process his request (for example, order) at all. An obligation to provide personal data arises especially when concluding a contract. If no personal data is provided in this case, the contract cannot be concluded with the data subject. Prior to any provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject may contact our data protection officer or the controller. The data protection officer or the controller then informs the data subject whether the provision of the personal data required is directed by law or contract or for the conclusion of the contract and whether the data subject's concerns imply the provision of the personal data or what consequences a non-provision of the desired data have for the person concerned.

11. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling in our business relationships.
