General information about data processing

Extent of personal data processing

We process our users’ personal data only to the extent required for providing a functional website and supplying our content and services. We process our users’ personal data regularly only if the respective users have given their consent. The only exception to this is where it is actually impossible for us to obtain prior consent and processing of the data is legally allowed.

Legal basis for processing personal data
  • Where we obtain the corresponding data subjects’ consent for processing their personal data, art. 6 paragraph 1 point a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
  • Where we need to process personal data for the purposes of fulfilling a contract, and the data subject is party to the contract, art. 6 paragraph 1 point b of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing necessary to accommodate preparations for entering into a contract.
  • Where processing of personal data is necessary for our association to fulfil a legal obligation, art. 6 paragraph 1 point c of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
  • Where processing of personal data is necessary for protecting the vital interests of the data subject, or those of another individual, art. 6 paragraph 1 point d of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
  • Where processing is necessary to protect our association‘s or a third party’s legitimate interests, and such interests are not overridden by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, art. 6 paragraph 1 point f of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Deletion of data and data storage period

The data subject’s personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it has been collected has been fulfilled. Data may remain on record beyond this period if such is specified in European or national legislation from European Union Regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be deleted if a storage period specified in the above standards expires unless conclusion or fulfilment of a contract requires the data to remain on record further.
