Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO are based.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO are based. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject; We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator; In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

16. legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner);

Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us; The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her; Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded;

Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees; Our employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data;

17. existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
