  12. Customer service: ...is necessary in order to offer customers all the company's services.

  15. Invoices: ...is necessary in order to create a document in which a company informs its customers of the payment due under a contract.

We transfer personal data to responsible employees/departments in the company (sales/sales, marketing, accounting, service, project management, customer advisors, management), tax consultants, lawyers and our parent company.
Further processing will only take place if you have given your consent or if there is legal permission.
To some extent, we use external service providers based in the European Economic Area to process your data. These service providers have been carefully selected by us, commissioned in writing and are bound by our instructions. We check them on a regular basis. The service providers will not pass these data on to third parties, but will delete it after fulfilment of the contract and the conclusion of statutory storage periods, unless you have consented to further storage.
The personal data are also transferred to our parent company in Switzerland. The Commission has taken a adequacy decision pursuant to Article 45(3) of the DS Block Exemption Regulation.
In addition, we may provide information on the relevant facts to a lawyer. This is done in accordance with legal requirements, insofar as it is necessary to protect our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third parties and there is no reason to assume that your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, which require the protection of personal data, prevail. The collection, storage and transfer of data is therefore carried out for the purpose of operational interests on the basis of Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f DS-GVO.

We maintain current technical measures to ensure the protection of personal data. These will be adapted to the current state of the art.

4. Your data protection rights

You have the right to request information from us at any time about the personal data we have stored about you (Article 15 DS-GVO).

  • the processing is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation (Article 7(3) DS Block Exemption Regulation).
