What legal basis do we have for processing your personal data?
The condition for the processing the personal data of the data subject is a given consent to the processing of his or her personal data according to the Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. If no other legal basis for data processing applies, the Company can only collect personal data upon prior consent of the Data Subject. If the Data Subject contacts us via the telephone, he/she can express the consent to the data collection by pressing 1. The failure to press the button 1 will signify the absence of the consent.
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may at any time directly contact the Company.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance 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 goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect 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 company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company 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.
