What is the legal basis of our data processing?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle - as far as there are no specific legal provisions - Article 6 GDPR. Here are the following options in particular:

• Consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR)
• Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR)
• Data processing based on a balance of interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR)
• Data processing to fulfill a legal obligation (Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR)

If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you, as the person concerned, have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, taking into account the requirements of Article 21 GDPR.

How long do we store your data?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for its purpose.

As far as legal retention obligations exist - e.g. in commercial or tax law - the personal data concerned are stored for the duration of the retention obligations. After expiry of the retention obligation, it is checked whether there is a further need for processing. If a requirement no longer exists, the data is deleted.

Basically we are reviewing data for further processing  once a year. Due to the amount of data, this check is done for specific types of data or purposes of processing.

Of course, you can at any time request information about your personal data stored by us and require a deletion of the data or restriction of processing if its necessity is not given.
