6. Legal basis of the processing

Art 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. Is the processing of personal data necessary to fulfill a contract, whose contracting party is the person concerned, as it is in case of with processing operations, for example, which are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration is the processing based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on GDPR Art. 6 I lit. d. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on DDR Art. 6 I lit.f. On this legal basis are basing processing procedures that are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal bases if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing procedures are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He took the view insofar as the legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (GDPR recital 47 sentence 2).

  • in the event that disclosure pursuant to GDPR Art. 6 I 1 lit. c is a legal obligation, as well as
  • this is legally permissible and according to GDGR Art. 6 I lit. b is required for the settlement of contractual relationships with you.
