25. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operationsfor which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If theprocessing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract towhich the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processingoperations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any otherservice, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same appliesto such processing operations which are necessary for carrying outpre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning ourproducts or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by whichprocessing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of taxobligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases,the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interestsof the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, forexample, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, healthinsurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to adoctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based onArt. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which arenot covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessaryfor the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by athird party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests orfundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection ofpersonal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible becausethey have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He consideredthat a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client ofthe controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

26. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPRour legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-beingof all our employees and the shareholders.

27. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data isthe respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, thecorresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessaryfor the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

28. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement;Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subjectto provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide suchdata
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law(e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g.information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary toconclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, whichmust subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obligedto provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him orher. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that thecontract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data isprovided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. Theemployee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personaldata is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of thecontract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and theconsequences of non-provision of the personal data.

29. Existence of automated decision-making
