The legal ground of the data processing in the context of the EU General Data Protection Regulation results from Article 6 GDPR for our data processing. Specifically, different legal grounds may arise depending on the situation in which we process your data.

Insofar as your consent has been obtained for processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR is the legal ground for the data processing.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR is the legal ground. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Legal obligation
Insofar as processing of personal data is a legal obligation to which our undertaking is subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal ground.

Legitimate interest
If the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our undertaking or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, then Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal ground for the processing. The legitimate interest of our undertaking lies in the performance of our business activities.
