Article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as a legal basis for our company for processingoperations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract towhich you are party, such as processing operations necessary for the supply ofgoods or any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations necessary for the conductingpre-contractual measures, for example in case of inquiries about our products orservices.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation obligating us to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, such processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, forexample, if a visitor to our company was injured and his name, age, health insurancedetails or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or otherthird party. The processing would then be based on Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) (f) GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on thislegal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of ourcompany or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentionedby the European legislator. According to the view of the European legislator a legitimate interest can be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
