Legal basis of data processing

Article 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis of data processing operations for which we obtain the data subjects’ consent to a certain data processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to perform a contract with the data subject, e.g. in the case of data processing required for the delivery of goods or another service or return performance, the legal basis for the data processing is Article 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies to data processing required for the performance of pre-contractual measures, such as in the case of enquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is compelled to process personal data under a legal duty, e.g. in the context of tax obligations, the legal basis of the data processing is Article 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. c GDPR. Exceptional cases may require us to process personal data for the purpose of protecting the vital interests of the data subject or another individual person (Article 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. d GDPR). The processing of data may also be based on Article 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. f GDPR. This forms the legal basis of any processing of data not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases, provided the data processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and insofar as the data subject's interests, fundamental freedoms and fundamental rights do not prevail.
