Type and place of data processing

Processing methods

The Provider processes User Data in a proper manner and takes appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access and unauthorized forwarding, modification or destruction of data.

Data processing is carried out by means of computers or IT-based systems in accordance with organizational procedures and practices specifically aimed at the stated purposes. In addition to the Data Controller, other parties internal (Human Resources, Sales, Marketing, Legal, System Administrators) or external - and in the case where necessary, designated by the Data Controller as processors (such as technical service providers, delivery companies, hosting providers, IT companies or communication agencies) - could also operate this application and thus have access to the data. An up-to-date list of these parties may be requested from the provider at any time.

Legal basis for processing

The provider may only process personal data of users if one of the following applies:

  • Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Note: In some jurisdictions, the provider may be permitted to process personal data until the user objects to such processing ("opt-out") without relying on consent or any other of the following legal bases. However, this does not apply if the processing of personal data is subject to European data protection law;
  • the collection of data is necessary for the performance of a contract with the user and/or for pre-contractual measures arising therefrom;
  • the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the provider is subject;
  • the processing is related to a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Provider;
  • the processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the provider or a third party.

In any case, the Provider will be happy to provide information about the specific legal basis on which the processing is based, in particular whether the provision of personal data is a legal or contractual obligation or a prerequisite for the conclusion of a contract.

Location

Data is processed at the Provider's office and at all other locations where the entities involved in data processing are located. Depending on the location of the users, data transfers may involve the transfer of the user's data to a country other than the user's own. To learn more about the location of the processing of the transferred data, users may consult the section detailing the processing of personal data.

Users also have the right to be informed about the legal basis of the transfer of data to a country outside the European Union or to an international organization governed by international law or established by two or more countries, such as the UN, as well as to be informed about the security measures taken by the Provider to protect their data.

If such a transfer takes place, the User can learn more about it by reviewing the relevant sections of this document or by contacting the Provider via the information provided in the contact section.

Storage period

Personal data will be processed and stored for as long as required by the purpose for which it was collected.

Therefore:

  • Personal data collected for the purpose of fulfilling a contract concluded between the provider and the user will be stored until the complete fulfillment of this contract.
  • Personal data collected for the purpose of safeguarding the Provider's legitimate interests will be kept for as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of these purposes. Users may obtain more detailed information about the Provider's legitimate interests in the relevant sections of this document or by contacting the Provider.

In addition, the provider is permitted to store personal data for a longer period of time if the user has consented to such processing, as long as the consent is not revoked. In addition, the provider may be obliged to store personal data for a longer period of time if this is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation or by order of an authority.

After expiration of the retention period, personal data will be deleted. Therefore, the right to information, the right to deletion, the right to rectification and the right to data portability can be exercised after the retention period has expired.

Processing purposes
