Purposes of data processing by the data controller and third parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy. We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those stated. We will only share your personal data with third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this,
  • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you,
  • the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation,
 

the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data.

Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
