Furthermore, data subjects are informed about the rights to which they are entitled using this data protection declaration.

A natural person is considered to be identifiable, directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

2.2. Affected person
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the person responsible for processing.

2.3. Processing
Processing is any operation or series of operations carried out on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as the collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or other form of provision, comparison or association, restriction, deletion or destruction.

2.4. Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the objective of restricting their future processing.

2.5. Profiling
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists of using these personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, analyze or predict that natural person's personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.

2.6. Recipient
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be deemed to be recipients.

4. Framework of Data its origin

4.1. Categories of Processed Data and Source
We collect and process personal data that we receive as part of our business relationship with our customers. In principle, as little personal data as possible is processed. Depending on the group of people, the data processed may differ. Personal data can be collected or (further) processed in every phase of the business relationship, from the initiation of the business relationship to the termination of the business relationship.

In addition to customer data, we may also process personal data from other third parties involved in the business relationship.

4.2. Legal Basis and Purposes for Processing Personal Data
We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR on the following legal basis and for the following purposes:

1. To fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract (such as the provision of consulting services) to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our services.

2. To fulfill legal obligations
If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to comply with tax, regulatory or money laundering obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

3. To protect legitimate interests
Processing operations can also be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not predominate. Such legitimate interests include, in particular, the following processing activities:

We also collect personal data from publicly accessible sources for the purpose of customer acquisition.

4. Based on your consent
Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

4.3. Use and Storage of Your Personal Data

1. Data disclosure
Both internal and external entities may have access to your data. Within the company, only departments or employees who need the data to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations and to safeguard legitimate interests may process it.

Your data may be accessed from within and outside our company. Within the company, only departments or employees may process your data, if they need it to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations and to protect legitimate interests. If business areas and services of the company are outsourced or provided in whole or in part to external service providers, this will be done in accordance with the applicable legal provisions. All external service providers or vicarious agents to whom personal data is transmitted are contractually obliged to maintain data protection, to process your data only within the scope of providing the service and to comply with data protection instructions and legal requirements. Processors can be companies in the categories of banking services, advisory and distribution agreements, IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, debt collection, advice and consulting as well as sales and marketing.

2. Data deletion and storage
We process and store your personal data for the duration of the entire business relationship, i.e. from the initial initiation to the termination of the contract. After termination of a contract and therefore the purpose of storage no longer applying, the duration of storage is determined based on legal retention and documentation obligations.

3. Automated decision-making, including profiling
In principle, our decisions are not based on exclusively automated processing of personal data. In particular, we generally do not use automated decision-making to establish and implement the business relationship. We also do not use profiling measures.
