19. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtainconsent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for theperformance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, whenprocessing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, theprocessing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operationswhich are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiriesconcerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by whichprocessing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processingis based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessaryto protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case,for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data orother vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Thenthe processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could bebased on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are notcovered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposesof the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interestsare overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject whichrequire protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissiblebecause they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that alegitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47Sentence 2 GDPR).

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest isto carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

21. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutoryretention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as longas it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

22. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement

Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possibleconsequences of failure to provide such dataWe clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or canalso result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes itmay be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data,which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provideus with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of thepersonal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not beconcluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact anyemployee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data isrequired by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is anobligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
