Legal basis of data processing
Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain the consent for a specific processing purpose, for example when using cookies (see below). If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, for example in the case of processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to conduct pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data could become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR. Processing operations could also be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. This is, for example, the legal basis for the use of technical security functions and necessary cookies on our website.
