II. General Information on Data Processing

Data protection is of particular significance to us. Therefore, we only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as is required to provide our content and services and a functioning website. Personal data includes all information referring to an identified or identifiable natural person (“Person Concerned” in the following).

The collection and use of personal data of our users is always conducted in accordance with the GDPR and the applicable national data protection laws and provisions. If the processing of personal data is required, and such processing is not allowed by statutory regulations, we always seek the consent of the Person Concerned.

In general, we do not transfer personal data to third parties. A transfer only takes place, if you have given your express consent (Art. 6 Sec. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR); if a legitimate interest in such transfer exists and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding and legitimate interest in you data not being transferred (Art. 6 Sec. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR); if a transfer is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation (Art. 6 Sec. 1 p. 1 lit. c GDPR); or if a transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party (Art. 6 Sec. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR).

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Sec. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
