By personal data we mean all data concerning the personal and factual circumstances of a natural person. Personal data collected on our website is used exclusively for our own purposes.
 

1.1 Legal basis of data processing

The legal basis for data processing within the framework of the EU basic data protection regulation results for our data processing from Art. 6 DS-GVO. In detail, depending on the situation in which we process your data, different legal bases may arise.

Legal obligation
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 I c) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.

The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities. 


Employment relationship
According to Art. 88 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) in conjunction with Art. 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), personal data of employees will be processed for the purposes of the employment relationship if this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship or, after the establishment of the employment relationship, for its implementation or termination or for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and duties of employee representation arising from a law or a collective agreement, a works or service agreement (collective agreement).
