4. General provisions
We (hereinafter referred to as the “controller”) store and process your (hereinafter referred to as the “data subject”) personal data (e.g. title, name, address, email address, phone number, bank data, credit card number) in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions, particularly the REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR), Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other data-related regulations [e.g. the German Telemedia Act (TMG)].
In accordance with the GDPR and other regulations, data processing and use is only permitted if explicitly allowed by the GDPR or another statutory provision or if approved by the data subject (prohibited unless authorized). In accordance with these statutory requirements, the processing and use of data shall only be permissible, if
- a) the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
- b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
- c) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
- d) processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
- e) processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
- f) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.
We therefore use and process your personal data only to the extent permitted within contract management or if you have given your informed consent.
We will never forward your personal data including your address and your email address to any third party. Excepted from this are our service partners who require data transmission for the execution of the contractual relationship or if we have explicitly pointed out the forwarding of data. In these cases, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum.
