An exception applies in cases where prior consent is not possible for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2.     Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as a legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3.     Data erasure and storage time
