The information in this declaration applies to the data processing of personal data on our website and is intended to inform you about the purpose of processing, recipients, legal rights, storage periods and your rights. In principle, we only process personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. Personal data is any data that can be related to you as a person, such as your name, address or e-mail address. The term “processing of data informations” refers in particular to the collection, storage, use and transmission of your data.
So far as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the subject of processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. The processing personal data that is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract to which the data subject is a party is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO as a legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. As far as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our association is subject according to the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO is used as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our association or a third party if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not override the first interest based on Article 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR that serve as the legal basis for the processing.
The personal data of concerned persons will be deleted or blocked as soon as the reason for storing the data no longer applies. Storage of data after the purpose has been eliminated, if this is provided by law. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data in order to conclude or fulfill a contract.
