3. General information about data processing

3.1 Scope of personal data processing

We process personal data collected when you visit our website only for the purpose of providing a functioning website and its content and services. Principally we process personal data of our users only after their consent. An exception applies to cases, where it is not possible to obtain consent before, but the processing of the data is permitted by law. The transfer of personal data to third parties only takes place within contractually secured order data processing with our internal companies of the GLEICH group as well as our IT service providers. Principally the GLEICH Aluminium GmbH will be responsible for this data.

3.2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the affected people, that consent is the legal basis for the processing ( Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Art. 6 para 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the  legal basis for the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

To the extent that processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation serves Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or any other natural person require the processing of personal data serves Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR as legal basis.

If processing is necessary to preserve the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest. In this case serves Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR as legal basis for processing.

3.3 Routine deletion and storage duration of personal data

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply.In addition the personal data will be stored if it is prescribed by the european or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject . If a storage period prescribed by the legal standards expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted unless there is a need for further storage for a conclusion or a performance of a contract.
