13. Legal basis for data processing
The Art. 6 I lit. a of DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, for instance to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In such cases, the non-disclosure of personal data would have the consequence that, for example, a contract could not be concluded with the data subject. We are happy to inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business was injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party.
14. Duration of storage of personal data
The respective legal retention period is the criterion for the duration of storage of personal data. After this period has expired, the corresponding data will be automatically deleted if they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
From time to time, we will update the provisions on the protection of personal data.
