General information on data processing

Personal data is collected within the framework of contact (e.g. by contact form, whitepaper, e-mail). The type of data collected in the case of a contact form can be seen on the relevant contact form. This data will only be saved and used to answer your questions or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our vested interest in answering your query pursuant to article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
If your contact is regarding the conclusion of a contract, there is an additional legal basis for the processing, article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your query. This is the case when for certain reasons the affected question has been clarified and if no other legal storage requirements apply.
Data processing for contract conclusion
According to article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, personal data are continued to be collected and processed if you provide this for the implementation of a contract. The type of data collected can be seen on the relevant entry form. Deletion of data is always possible and can be requested through a message to the responsible party at the aforementioned address.
We store and use the data provided by you for conclusion of the contract. After completion of the contract, your data are locked in consideration of the tax and commercially required storage periods and after these deadlines expire the data is deleted if you have not expressly agreed to the further use of your data or if there is a legally permissible other use of data on our part, of which we will inform you accordingly.

In the processing of personal data required for the fulfilment of a contract, for which the contractual party is the affected person, article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing procedures that are required for pre-contractual measures.
If processing of data is required for the fulfilment of a legal requirement to which our company is subject, article 6 (1) (c) GDPR is the legal basis.
In the case that essential interests of the affected person or another natural person require the processing of personal data, article 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
