An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.  

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for data processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 Abs.1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party, Art. 6 Abs. 1 S 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations  necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Abs. 1 S 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6  Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing of data is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedom of the person concerned do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 Abs. S 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.  

3. Data deletion and storage period

Personal data of the person concerned shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been stipulated by European or national legislative authorities in Union regulations, laws, or other provisions to which the responsible party is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
