Purpose and legal basis of the processing

We collect and process your personal data for the initiation and implementation of the present contractual relationship. Data processing takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 (b) GDPR.

We only process your data for electronic promotional purposes via e-mail or telephone if you agree to it. In this case, your consent in connection with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 (a) GDPR is the legal basis for data processing. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. However, revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing carried out on the basis of the consent provided before revocation. In this case, we store your data until revocation occurs.

Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing by postal mail. In this case, data processing takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 (f) GDPR.


If necessary, your personal data will be processed by IT service providers acting on our behalf.


Some of your data will also be transferred and processed in countries outside the European Union (‘EU’) or the European Economic Area (‘EEA’). If necessary, we ensure that you have a sufficient level of data protection for your data in these cases by, for example, concluding EU standard contractual clauses with our contracting parties, or we will ask for your express consent.
