If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we have received or collected it.

3. What is the legal basis for this?
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle – insofar as there are no specific legal provisions – Art. 6 GDPR. In particular, the following options should be taken into account:
- Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
- Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
- Data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
- Data processing for the fulfillment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.
If personal data is processed on the basis of consent you have given, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time with future effect.
If we process data on the basis of a balancing of interests, you as the data subject have the right to reject the processing of your personal data, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 GDPR.
4. Categories and sources of personal data
We process the following information about you: Name, salutation, title (if any), professional contact data, professional position, employer, communication data. Insofar as you have voluntarily provided us with further data, we may also have stored this data. If you did not provide us with your information yourself, we received it from your employer or another business partner.
5. How long will the data be stored?
We process the data for as long as may be necessary for the respective purpose.
Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist – e.g. in commercial law or tax law – the personal data concerned will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After the retention obligation expires, the system checks whether there is a further requirement for processing. If a requirement no longer exists, the data will be deleted.
In general, we conduct an examination of data towards the end of a calendar year regarding the requirement for further processing. Due to the amount of data, this check is conducted with regard to specific types of data or processing purposes.
Of course, you can, at any time, (see below) request information about the personal data stored by us about you and, should the data not be required, request that the data be deleted or that its processing be restricted.
6. To which recipients is the data transferred?
Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract with you, the disclosure is permissible with regard to a balancing of interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, we are legally obliged to disclose it, or you have given your consent in this respect.
Possible recipients include: IT service providers who operate, maintain or service our IT systems as well as other companies in our company group. We also use IT/cloud service providers whose sub-service providers/parent companies are based in the USA. The legal basis for the transfer to this third country are EU standard contractual clauses.
7. Where will the data be processed?
Your personal data will be processed by us exclusively in data centers within the Federal Republic of Germany.
8. Your rights as a "data subject"
