9. Legal bases for processing
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 para.1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para.1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
Art. 6 para.1 lit c GDPR is the legal basis if the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject. Art. 6 para.1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis if processing personal data is necessary due to the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para.1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis for the processing.
