The personal data are processed for compliance with contracts or in order to implement pre-contractual measures.

Contractual arrangements are also included in this regard. The processing of newsletters takes place on the basis of consent provided by the data subjects.
Processing is based on the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party in the sense of Article 13(1), item (d) of the GDPR
In so far as we are required to process your data for purposes extending beyond the fulfilment of the contract, we will do so in order to safeguard our own legitimate interests or those of third parties. These shall include:
- Sales management and sales controlling
- The exercising of legal claims and mounting a defence in the case of legal disputes
- Ensuring IT security and IT operations
- Measures relating to the security of buildings and installations (e.g. entry controls) and in order to uphold domiciliary rights

Rights of data subjects in the sense of Article 13(2), item (b)
You are able to avail yourself of your rights at any time using the contact details above. If any personal data relating to you are being processed, you are a data subject in the sense of the GDPR and are entitled to the following rights, which must be granted by the controller:
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed, and, where that is the case, access to the personal data and to the items of information listed in Article 15 of the GDPR.
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her and, if applicable, shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed (Article 16 of the GDPR).
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, in so far as one of the grounds listed under Article 17 of the GDPR applies, such as if the data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected (Right to Erasure).
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller a restriction of processing, if one of the conditions listed under Article 18 of the GDPR has been fulfilled, such as if the data subject has objected to processing, pending verification by the controller.
The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Article 21 of the GDPR).
Rights of data subjects in the sense of Article 13(2), item (c) of the GDPR
If you have granted us consent for the processing of personal data for specific purposes (such as the processing of images of the data subjects or the dispatching of newsletters), those types of processing shall be lawful on the basis of the consent you have given.
Once given, consent can be withdrawn at any time and shall no longer apply in the future. The same thing applies in the case of withdrawals of consent given before the GDPR entered into force, in other words, before 25 May 2018.
Please bear in mind that any withdrawal will only be effective in the future. Your withdrawal will not apply to any processing of data that took place before the date you issued your withdrawal.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, every data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes the GDPR (Article 77 of the GDPR). The data subject can exercise this right with a supervisory authority situated in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work or of the Member State in which the alleged infringement occurred.
