Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the concerned person for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will serve as legal basis.

In the processing of personal data necessary for the fulfillment of a contract to which the concerned person is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (b) GDPR will serve as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation that is subject to our company, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (c) GDPR will serve as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the concerned person/s or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (d) GDPR will serve as legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the concerned party do not outweigh the interest mentioned first, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) GDPR will serve as legal basis for processing.

Disclosure of data

Unless otherwise stated in the privacy policy, your personal data will be disclosed without your express prior consent only in the following cases:

If it is necessary to investigate the unlawful use of our services or for purposes of prosecution, personal data will be forwarded to law enforcement authorities and, where appropriate, to third parties who have been harmed. However, this only happens if there are concrete indications of unlawful or abusive behaviour. A transfer can also take place if it serves to enforce Terms of Use or other agreements. We are also required by law to provide information to certain public authorities upon request. These are law enforcement agencies, authorities prosecuting administrative offences that involve fines and the tax authorities.

The transfer of this data is based on our legitimate interest in the fight against abuse, the prosecution of criminal offenses and the protection, assertion and enforcement of claims, if in this case the balancing of interests to be carried out by us has revealed that the interests or fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the concerned party, which needs the protection of personal data, are not outweighed (Article 6, para 1, lit. (f) GDPR)
