3. Legal basis of the data processing

On the one hand, the data processing is based on your consent (which can be revoked at any time), insofar as we require such consent for the processing. In addition, the processing of your data is carried out for the fulfillment of a contract to which you are a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures that are carried out at your request. The legal basis for the processing may also be a legal obligation to which we are subject, or it is carried out to protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data override these.

4. Storage period of the collected data

The personal data collected by us will be stored until the respective purpose of the data processing has been achieved and then deleted, unless we are obliged to store the data for a longer period of time pursuant to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c of the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO) due to tax and commercial law retention and documentation obligations (from the German Commercial Code (HGB), the German Criminal Code (StGB) or the German Tax Code (AO)) or you have consented to storage beyond this period pursuant to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a of the GDPR.
