4.1 Registration process
Mandatory information required for registration is marked with an "*" in the respective input field; as a rule, at least the following information is required: salutation, name, postal address, telephone numbers and email address. It is not possible to register without providing the mandatory data. Within the scope of your registration you have the possibility to provide further information on a voluntary basis, e.g. company contact data, profession, date of birth, etc. Please note that this information is not required for registration and you alone decide whether you wish to provide us with this information. If you do not provide this information, we may not be able to best meet your wishes in using our offers.
The personal data you provide during registration is used by us to create your profile and to identify you later each time you log in.

Depending on the service for which you are registering, additional data may be collected and then linked to your profile data.

In the case of a credit card payment, the card number, expiry date of the card, the holder's name and the card verification number are also recorded.

4.5. Live Chat
In certain areas of our website we offer contact and advice via live chat. With the help of the live chat function, you can communicate with one of our consultants via text messages. When you access and use live chat, for technical reasons your browser automatically transmits the following data at the beginning of use, which we store separately from other data that you may transmit to us:
The legal basis of this data processing is Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest is directed towards guaranteeing and maintaining the operation and security of our offers as well as the elimination of faults. Within this framework, the data is also processed by us for analysis purposes - without assignment to a specific person.
If you provide us with additional personal data via the live chat function, this is done on a voluntary basis. We do not actively request personal data from you. The texts you enter in the input mask during the live chat are stored on the server of an external service provider on our behalf. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Section 1 b) GDPR.
4.6. Other means of contact
If you provide us with personal data by email or via a contact form, this is always done on a voluntary basis.

We process your personal data to protect our legitimate interests. In addition to the interests stated in the description of the individual services and offers under Section 4, data processing takes place within the framework of our website or after registration has taken place, in particular against the background of the following interests:
The respective data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR.
If you give us your consent to certain data processing procedures, this is always earmarked for a specific purpose; the purposes result from the content of the specific declaration of consent. In this case, data processing is based on Art. 6 Section 1 a) GDPR. We will not be able to comply with your request without your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time without this affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
On the basis of any consents you may have given, the companies listed in the declaration of consent may use the data for specific purposes, e.g. for individual customer and prospect support, and contact you via the communication channels you have requested.

We send newsletters after corresponding registration, which means with your consent. If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described in the registration, these are decisive for the scope of the consent. In addition, our newsletters contain information about our products, offers, promotions and our company. The company named in the registration process is responsible for processing your data. The registration is carried out by a double opt-in method, that means after your registration you will receive an email in which you are asked to confirm your registration in order to prevent the misuse of your email address. We log the registrations in order to be able to prove the registration process and the consent contained therein in accordance with the legal requirements. The logging of the registration and the processing of the data entered by you during registration is accordingly carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 f) GDPR. You can revoke your consent to receive our newsletter at any time, e.g. by unsubscribing from the newsletter. You will find an unsubscribe link to exercise this right at the end of each newsletter.

7.4 Other external parties
If data is transferred to bodies whose registered office or data processing facilities are not located in a member state of the European Union or in another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, we ensure that the recipient either has an adequate level of data protection before the transfer, outside of exceptional cases permitted by law (e.g. by an adequacy decision of the European Commission or the agreement of so-called EU standard contract clauses of the European Union with the recipient) or if you give your consent to the data transmission.
We can provide you with an overview of the recipients in third countries and a copy of the concretely agreed regulations to ensure the appropriate level of data protection. Please see the information in Section 1.
If the description of the individual services and offers does not specify the specific storage period or deletion of the data, the following applies.
We store your personal data only as long as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the intended purposes or - in the case of a consent - as long as you have not revoked the consent. In the event of an objection to processing, we will delete your personal data unless further processing is permitted by the relevant legal provisions. We also delete your personal data if we are obliged to do so for other legal reasons.
By applying these general principles, we usually delete your personal data immediately after the legal basis or the pursued purpose has ceased to apply and provided that no other legal basis (e.g. retention periods under commercial and taxation law) intervenes. If the latter is the case, we will delete the data once the other legal basis has ceased to apply.
As a data subject, you have a number of rights. These include:
Right to information: You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us.
Right of correction and deletion: You may request us to correct incorrect data and - insofar as the legal requirements are fulfilled - to delete your data.
Restriction of processing: You can demand - as far as the legal requirements are fulfilled - that the processing of your data by us is restricted.
Data transferability: If you have provided us with data on the basis of a contract or consent, you can request that you receive the data provided by you in a structured, current and machine-readable format or that we transmit it to another responsible party, provided that the legal requirements are met.
Objection to data processing on the legal basis of "legitimate interest": You have the right to object to data processing by us at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation, insofar as this is based on the legal basis of "legitimate interest". If you exercise your right of objection, we will stop the processing of your data unless we can - in accordance with the applicable statutory provisions - prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for further processing which outweigh your rights.
Revocation of consent: If you have given us consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the processing of your data until revocation remains unaffected by this.
Right of appeal to the supervisory authority: You can also lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your data violates applicable law. Especially for this purpose, you can contact the data protection authority which is responsible for your place of residence or country or the data protection authority responsible for us.
Your contact to us: Furthermore, you can contact us free of charge with questions about the processing of your personal data, your rights as a data subject and any consent given. To exercise all your aforementioned rights, please contact email@example.com by email or write to the address provided in Section 1. Please make sure that we are able to identify you clearly.
