14.Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legalbasis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specificprocessing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for theperformance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case,for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goodsor to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. bGDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary forcarrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiriesconcerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legalobligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for thefulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. cGDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary toprotect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our companyand his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would haveto be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processingwould be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations couldbe based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processingoperations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, ifprocessing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued byour company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden bythe interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject whichrequire protection of personal data. Such processing operations areparticularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by theEuropean legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumedif the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

15. Thelegitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is basedon Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out ourbusiness in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

16.Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period ofstorage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. Afterexpiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as longas it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or theinitiation of a contract.

17.Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirementnecessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to providethe personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal datais partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result fromcontractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimesit may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides uswith personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The datasubject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when ourcompany signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personaldata would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject couldnot be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, thedata subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the datasubject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law orcontract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there isan obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences ofnon-provision of the personal data.
