You are neither legally nor contractually obliged to provide your personal data. However, it is possible that certain functions of our website depend on the provision of personal data. If you do not provide personal data in these cases, this can lead to functions not being available or only to a limited extent.

Our websites may also contain offers from third parties. If you click on such an offer, we will transfer the necessary data to the respective provider (e.g. information that you have found this offer with us and, if applicable, further information that you have already given on our website).

We use technical and organizational security measures to protect your data managed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. We are continuously improving our security measures in line with technological developments.

6. LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING
Insofar as you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal data, this constitutes the legal basis for the processing (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

We also process personal data for the purpose of safeguarding our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR. Maintaining the functionality of our IT systems, the (direct) marketing of our own and third-party products and services and the legally required documentation of business contacts are such legitimate interests.

Beyond this point in time, storage will only take place insofar as this is necessary in accordance with the laws, regulations or other legal provisions to which we are subject, in the EU or according to legal provisions in third countries, if there is an appropriate level of data protection in each case. If deletion is not possible in individual cases, the corresponding personal data will be marked with the aim of restricting their future processing.

8. DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS
As the person affected by data processing, you have the right to information (Art. 15 GDPR), correction (Art. 16 GDPR), data deletion (Art. 17 GDPR), restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and data portability (Art. 20 GDPR).
