8. Routine Deletion and Blocking of Personal Data

The data controller processes and stores personal data of individuals only for the duration necessary to achieve the storage purpose, or as provided by the European legislator or other competent legislators in laws or regulations.

Once the storage purpose expires or a legally prescribed storage period imposed by the European legislator or other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted according to legal requirements.

9. Rights of the Individual

Individuals have the right:

• to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being processed, to information about the processed data, additional information about data processing, and copies of the data (also see Article 15 of the GDPR);

• to correction or completion of incorrect or incomplete data (also see Article 16 of the GDPR);

• to prompt deletion of data concerning them (also see Article 17 of the GDPR) or, alternatively, if further processing is required pursuant to Article 17(3) of the GDPR, to restriction of processing according to Article 18 of the GDPR;

• to receive the data concerning them and provided by them and to transmit this data to other providers/controllers (also see Article 20 of the GDPR);

• to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority (For Germany: The Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Husarenstraße 30, 53117 Bonn) if they believe that the data concerning them is being processed by the provider in violation of data protection regulations (also see Article 77 of the GDPR).

Additionally, you can request us to inform you of all recipients to whom we have disclosed data concerning you, any rectification or erasure of data or restriction of processing carried out pursuant to Articles 16, 17(1), and 18 of the GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if this notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You also have the right, pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR, to object to the future processing of data concerning you, provided that the data is processed by us in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Particularly, you have the right to object to the processing of data for direct marketing purposes.

If you wish to exercise your right to revoke consent, you can contact the data controller at any time, as well as for other claims.

10. Legal Basis for Processing

Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, the contracting party of which is the data subject, as is the case, for example, in processing operations required for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, processing is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. The same applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, such as inquiries about our services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of 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 had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital, or other third party. In this case, processing would be based on Article 6(1)(d) of the GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2 of the GDPR).

11. Legitimate Interests Pursued by the Controller or a Third Party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business activities.

12. Duration for Which the Personal Data is Stored

The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the expiry of this period, the relevant data is routinely deleted, provided it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

13. No Disclosure of Data to Third Parties

The data controller does not disclose the personal data of its users to third parties, unless you have given your express consent beforehand or there is a legal obligation to transfer data. Furthermore, the disclosure of personal data to third parties may occur if a legal basis allows such transfer and the transfer of data is necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations.

14. Existence of Automated Decision-Making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
