Legal basis of processing
If you have given us consent to process your personal data for a specific purpose, the processing is performed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 a DSGVO. If such processing is necessary in order to fulfill or initiate a contract with you, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. In some cases, z. For example, in order to fulfill tax obligations, we may be subject to a legal obligation to process personal data. The legal basis for this in such cases is Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR. In rare cases, processing may also be done to protect vital interests of you or another natural person. In this exceptional case, processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations can also be based on Art. 6 para. 1 f of the GDPR. This is the case if the processing is to safeguard a legitimate interest for our company or a third party, unless your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms prevail. Such a legitimate interest can already be accepted if you are a customer of ours. If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities.
We as the controller have taken technical and organizational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO. This includes in particular measures to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data. In addition, we have established processes that ensure the protection of data subject rights, the deletion of personal data and an immediate response to the threat to such data. In addition, we ensure the protection of personal data already in the development and selection of hardware and software in accordance with the principles of Art. 25 GDPR. All of our employees and persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation and other data protection laws as well as the confidential handling of personal data.
In the case of the collection and processing of personal data, the information is transmitted in encrypted form in order to prevent misuse of the data by third parties. Our hedging measures are continuously revised in line with technological developments.
Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection can not be guaranteed.

Social Media Plugins implemented with Shariff
Plug-ins of the social network LinkedIn are used on our website. You can usually recognize the plug-ins by means of the social media logo.

If you have consented to the data processing by selecting in our consent management, you can start the video immediately on the website.
