If this is the case, then the disclosure on the basis of the aforementioned legal basis, for example, in the transfer of data to online payment providers to fulfill the contract or by court order or a legal obligation to disclose the data for the purpose of prosecution, to avoid danger or to enforce intellectual property rights.
We also use processors (external service providers e.g. for web hosting of our websites and databases) to process your data. If data are passed on to the processor by order processing, this is always done in accordance with Art. 28 of the GDPR. We select our processors carefully, monitor them regularly and have given us the right to give instructions regarding the data.

Data transmission to third countries

The adoption of the basic European data protection regulation (GDPR) has created a uniform basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore be processed primarily by companies for which GDPR applies. If the processing takes place through services of third parties outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must fulfill the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. This means that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the official recognition by the EU Commission of a data protection level corresponding to the EU, or the observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called "standard contractual clauses". In US companies, submission to the so-called Privacy Shield, the EU-US data protection agreement, meets these requirements.

Deletion of data and storage duration

Unless explicitly stated in this privacy policy, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted, unless their further storage is required for evidence or contrary to legal storage requirements. These include, for example, commercial requirements for the storage of business letters pursuant to Section 257 (1) HGB (6 years) and tax-related retention obligations pursuant to Section 147 (1) AO concerning business papers (10 years). If the prescribed retention period expires, your data will be blocked or deleted, unless storage is still required for a contract or fulfillment.

Existence of automated decision-making

We do not use automatic decision making or profiling.
