We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
If you have given us your consent to the processing of personal data for certain purposes (e.g. newsletter), the lawfulness of this processing is given based on your consent. A given consent can be revoked at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the data processed until the revocation.
We are subject to various legal obligations (e.g. tax and customs law). This includes the transfer of personal data to competent authorities and bodies (e.g. tax office, employers' liability insurance association, financial institutions and trust companies).
The purposes of the processing include, among other things, identity and age verification, screening based on anti-terror lists, the fulfilment of tax control and reporting obligations as well as the assessment and management of risks. This list is exemplary and not exhaustive.

However, for certain tasks, we use service providers who may have their registered office, parent company or data centers in a third country. A transfer is permissible if the European Commission has decided that an adequate level of protection exists in a third country (Art. 45 GDPR). If the Commission has not taken such a decision, we may only transfer personal data to a service provider in a third country if appropriate safeguards are contractually agreed and enforceable rights and effective remedies are available (Art. 46 GDPR).
We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in Section 4 or for the fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations, as well as for the pursuit of legitimate interests, i.e., for the preservation of evidence or evidence within the framework of the statutory statute of limitations.

Automated decision-making does not take place.
Pursuant to Article 4 (4) GDPR, ‘profiling’ means any form of automated processing of personal data to evaluate, analyze or predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person (e.g. performance at work, economic situation, personal preferences or interests, reliability, behavior or movements).
We do not use profiling.
For reasons arising from your particular situation, you have the right to object at any time to the pro-cessing of your personal data that is done pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR (processing necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests). This also applies to profiling pursuant to Article 4 (4) GDPR based on this provision.
If you object, we will cease processing of your personal data unless we are able to demonstrate legitimate reasons for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, exercising or defending legal claims.
We may also process your data in the context of the statutory provisions for the purpose of direct advertising. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling where this is connected to such direct advertising. If you object to the processing for the purposes of direct advertising we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.
You may lodge your objection in any form.
