An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for actual reasons and where the processing of the data is permitted by law.

If and to the extent that we obtain consent from the data subject to the processing activities, Art. 6 subs. 1 a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 1 subs. 1 b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

This also applies for processing activities that are necessary for taking steps prior to entering into a contract.

3. Erasure of data and duration of storage

The personal data of the data subject is erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to exist. The data can be stored beyond that time if this is provided for by European or national legislation in EU Regulations, EU laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject.
