Data processing in the context of business relationships

In the context of business relationships, we collect, process and store personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the initiation and / or implementation of the respective business relationship or for the fulfillment of our contractual obligations to you, and only to the extent that we are permitted to do so on the basis of applicable legal requirements or we are obliged to do so.

The provision of your personal data is generally voluntary. For the initiation and / or for the implementation of the business relationship, however, the collection, processing and storage of certain personal data is usually necessary. Below we explain what happens to this data:
 

  • Scope of processing personal data
    The data provided by you in the context of the business relationship (e.g. contact details of the contact person(s), i.e. title, name, business address, telephone number and e-mail address; bank and billing data, master data changes made by you).
    Further personal data (e.g. name and business address of the managing directors and shareholders) from publicly accessible sources (e.g. commercial register, authorities, internet), as far as this is legally permissible, e.g. because this is necessary for the provision of our services.
     
  • Legal basis for the processing of personal data
    Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR (fulfillment of the contract or implementation of pre-contractual measures) insofar as the processing is necessary to fulfill the contract concluded with you or to carry out pre-contractual measures at your request.
    Otherwise Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest). Our legitimate interest is the initiation and proper execution of the respective business relationship.
     
  • Purpose of data processing
    Initiation and / or implementation of the business relationship.
     
  • Storage Period
    The data will be deleted after the final termination of the business relationship, unless there are statutory, in particular commercial or tax retention periods (e.g. § 147 AO and § 257 HGB). In these cases, the data will be deleted after the (last) statutory period.
     
  • Option to object and erase
    The options to object and erase are based on the general regulations outlined below in this Privacy Policy concerning the right to object and erase as set out in data protection law.

Data security and data protection, communication by email

Your personal data is protected by technical and organisational measures in such a way that it cannot be accessed by third parties when it is collected, stored or processed.
