9. Legal basis of processing
Article 6 I (a) of the GDPR provides our company with a legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract of which the data subject is a party, as it is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Items. 6 I (b) of the GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required 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 premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I (d) GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I (f) GDPR. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental priorities of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it is considered as a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
10. Eligible processing interests that are being pursued by the controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I (f) GDPR our legitimate interest is the conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
11. Duration of storage of personal data
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is relevant and statutory retention period. After the deadline, the relevant data is routinely deleted if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or contract negotiations.
12. Statutory or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data
