2. purposes of the processing according to Art. 13 (1) c) DS-GVO.

Visitors/users of the website,
The data subjects are collectively referred to as "users".
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Below we inform you about the legal basis for the processing of personal data:
- If we have obtained your consent for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out at your request, Art. 6 (1) S. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. legal retention obligations), Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. d) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
- If the processing is necessary to protect our or a third party's legitimate interests and your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not override this, Art. 6 (1) S. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO is the legal basis.
Disclosure of personal data to third parties and order processors
As a matter of principle, we do not pass on any data to third parties without your consent. If this should nevertheless be the case, then the disclosure takes place on the basis of the previously mentioned legal grounds, e.g. in the case of the disclosure of data to online payment providers for the fulfillment of contracts or due to a court order or because of a legal obligation to hand over the data for the purpose of criminal prosecution, to avert danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We also use processors (external service providers, e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data is passed on to the processors as part of a contract processing agreement, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. In doing so, we carefully select our processors, regularly monitor them and have been granted a right to issue instructions regarding the data. In addition, the processors must have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures and comply with the data protection regulations according to BDSG n.F. and DS-GVO.
Data transfer to third countries
he adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data is therefore predominantly processed by companies to which DS-GVO applies. If, however, processing is carried out by services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, these must meet the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DS-GVO. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination by the EU Commission of a level of data protection corresponding to the EU or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses".
Insofar as we obtain your express consent to the transfer of data to the USA due to the invalidity of the so-called "Privacy Shield", pursuant to Article 49 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO, we point out in this regard the risk of secret access by US authorities and the use of the data for monitoring purposes, possibly without any legal remedy for EU citizens.
Deletion of data and storage period
Existence of automated decision making
We do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
