§ 3 What are personal data?
Personal data are individual details about personal or factual situations of a specific or identifiable natural person (data subject). This includes information such as your name, address, phone number, date of birth, or e-mail address. Information with which we cannot (or can only with a disproportionate effort) establish a reference to your person, e.g. by making the information anonymous, is not personal data.
§ 4 General information on data processing
We only collect and use our users’ personal data if and to the extent needed to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. We use your personal data to provide the services you need, to answer your questions and to operate and improve our websites and applications.
Your personal data is not used for any other purpose, especially not for advertising purposes. Your personal data shall not be transferred to third parties without your consent, except in the cases described below, unless we are legally obliged to provide the data.
b) Legal basis

Article 6, Section 1c, of the GDPR serves as legal basis for processing the personal data required to fulfil a legal obligation of our company.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6, Section 1f, of the GDPR shall serve as legal basis for processing.
c) Data erasure and storage time
Your personal data shall be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. However, the data may be stored if provided for by European or national laws or other statutory provisions to which the controller is subject. The data shall be blocked or erased at the end of a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards, unless the data needs to be stored further in order to conclude or implement a contract.

Other persons’ freedoms and rights must not be affected by this.
The right to portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data needed to perform a task in the public interest or to exercise official authority conferred on the controller.
