2. What sources and data do we use?

We process personal data that we receive from you within the scope of our business relationship. In addition, we process - to the extent necessary for the business relationship - personal data which we have received from other companies or third parties (e.g. credit rating authorities) in a legally permissible manner (e.g. to execute orders, to fulfil contracts or on the basis of a consent given by you). At the same time we process personal data which we have legitimately obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debtor lists, land registers, commercial registers, press, media) and are permitted to process.
The relevant personal data consists of personal details (name, address and other contact details, date and place of birth and nationality), legitimation data (e.g. ID card details), and all data required to fulfil the contract.


3. For what purpose do we process your data (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):

3.1 To fulfil contractual obligations (Art. 6 Section 1b GDPR)

The processing of personal data (Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR) is carried out in order to fulfil business activities with customers, prospective customers and suppliers

3.2 As part of the balancing of interests (Art. 6 Section 1f GDPR)

As far as necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfilment of the contract in order to protect our legitimate interests or those of third parties.


4. Who receives my data?

The data is processed in order to be able to fulfil business requirements, and your data will not be resold or transferred to unauthorised third parties.


5. For how long will my data be stored?

If necessary we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which for example also includes the initiation and execution of a contract. The duration of the storage is also determined by legal obligations.


6. Is data transferred to a non-EU country or to an international organisation?

Data will only be transferred to third countries (countries outside the European Economic Area - EEA) if this is necessary for the execution of your orders, is required by law or if you have given us your consent.


7. What are your privacy rights?

Every data subject has the right to information in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, the right of rectification in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, the right of deletion in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, the right to restrict processing in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR and the right to data transferability under Art. 20 GDPR. The right of information and the right of deletion are subject to the restrictions of §§ 34 and 35 BDSG. In addition you have the right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 BDSG).


8. To what extent is automated decision-making applied in individual cases?

As a matter of principle, we do not use a fully automated decision-making process in accordance with Art. 22 GDPR to establish and implement the business relationship. If we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform you of this separately if this is required by law.
