With the following information, we would like to give you as the "data subject" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under the data protection laws. It is generally possible to use our internet pages without entering personal data. However, if you want to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from you.
As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or by post.
The controller within the meaning of the GDPR is:
Pending System GmbH & Co. KG
Tel.: (+49) 9231 97 007 80
Data Protection Officer
You can reach the data protection officer as follows:
ENS Privacy & Consulting GmbH
Bayreuther Str. 11
Tel.: (+49) 9231 97 37 57 43
You can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with all questions and suggestions regarding data protection.
- Personal Data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
- Data Subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller (our company).
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
- Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.
- Third Party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
- Transfer of data to third countries
Data is deemed to be transferred to third countries if it is processed outside of the European Union/European Economic Area and the level of data protection does not meet European standards.
Legal Basis of the Processing
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (in conjunction with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result their name, age, health insurance details or other vital information needed to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned 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 the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
Transmission of Data to Third Parties
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
We will only share your personal data with third parties if:
- you have given us your explicit consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR,
- the disclosure is permissible in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
- in the event that a legal obligation exists for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and
- this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
Personal data may be transferred to the US as part of the processing operations described in this privacy statement. The US does not have an adequate level of data protection (ECJ - Schrems II). To protect your data, we have entered into commissioned processing agreements based on the European Commission's standard contractual clauses. If the standard contractual clauses are not sufficient to establish an adequate level of security, your consent pursuant to Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR may serve as the legal basis for the transfer to third countries. This sometimes does not apply in the case of a data transfer to third countries for which the European Commission has issued an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR.
The parent companies of Facebook, Instagram, Google, Microsoft and Cloudflare are headquartered in the United States. A transfer of data to the United States and access by U.S. authorities to the data stored by the above-mentioned companies cannot be ruled out. The United States are currently classified as a third country from a data privacy standpoint. You do not have the same rights there as within the European Union/European Economic Area. In some cases, you may not be entitled to legal recourse against access by authorities.
7.1 SSL/TLS Encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that there is a "https://" instead of a "http://" in the address line of the browser and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.
7.2 Automatic Forwarding
When you access our website, your IP address is collected in order to see from which country you are accessing our website (hereinafter "Geo-IP"). The background to this is that we would like to present our website to you right away, taking into account the correct country. Depending on your browser language, the correct language of the website is also set. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in this context is Art. 6 para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our overriding legitimate interest is the individual presentation of individual functions, depending on the country of the geo-IP to be accessed. This geo-IP check is carried out once when you visit our website for the first time. If necessary, you can also change the country and language selection later. The IP address is not stored beyond this.
7.3 Data Collection when Visiting the Website
When using our website for information purposes only, i.e. when not registering or otherwise transmitting information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a series of general data and information each time a page is accessed by you or by an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded
- browser types and versions used,
- the operating system used by the accessing system,
- the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
- the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
- the date and time of access to the website,
- an Internet Protocol (IP) address; and
- the internet service provider of the accessing system.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is needed
- to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
- to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
- to ensure the permanent operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
- to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Therefore, the data and information collected will be used by us for statistical purposes only and with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.
7.4 Microsoft Azure (Hosting)
We host our website at Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399 USA
When you visit our website, your personal data are processed on Microsoft Azure servers. Personal data may also be processed in the USA. Data transfer to the USA is based on the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF). You can find more information at: https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_23_3721 and https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/s/
The use of Microsoft Azure is based on Art. 46 para. 2 and 3 DSGVO.
You can find out more about Microsoft's standard contractual clauses here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/compliance/regulatory/offering-eu-model-clauses
7.5 Cloudflare (CDN)
We use the Content Delivery Network (CDN) of Cloudflare Germany GmbH, Rosental 7, c/o Mindspace, 80331 Munich Germany (Cloudflare) to increase the security and delivery speed of our website. This corresponds to our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). A CDN is a network of [globally] distributed servers that is able to deliver optimized content to the website user. For this purpose, personal data may be processed in server log files by Cloudflare. Please compare the explanations under "Hosting".
Cloudflare is a recipient of your personal data and acts as a processor for us. This corresponds to our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO not to operate a content delivery network ourselves.
You have the right to object to the processing. Whether the objection is successful is to be determined as part of a balancing of interests.
The processing of the data provided under this section is not required by law or contract. The functionality of the website is not guaranteed without the processing.
Your personal data will be stored by Cloudflare for as long as necessary for the purposes described.
For more information on objection and removal options vis-à-vis Cloudflare, please visit: Cloudflare DPA
Cloudflare has implemented compliance measures for international data transfers. These apply to all global activities where Cloudflare processes personal data of individuals in the EU. These measures are based on the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs). For more information, please visit: https://www.cloudflare.com/cloudflare_customer_SCCs.pdf
8.1 General Information about Cookies
Information is stored in the cookie that results in each case from the context of the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity.
In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
The data processed by the cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are thus necessary to protect our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
For all other cookies, you must have given your consent to this via our opt-in cookie banner within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
8.3 Notes on Avoiding Cookies in Common Browsers
You can delete cookies, only allow selected cookies or completely deactivate cookies at any time via the settings of the browser you are using. For more information, please visit the support pages of the respective providers:
Contents of our Website
9.1 Contact / Contact Form
Personal data are collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or email). Which data are collected in the event of the use of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. The data are stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. We reserve the right for quality assurance purposes to store the details you provide in our internal knowledge database. Your data will not be used for profiling or for anything other than its intended purpose.
9.2 Application Management / Job Fair
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form located on the website. If we conclude an employment or service contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude a contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted 6 months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part oppose deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with. § 26 para. 1 BDSG.
9.3 Flockler / Social media wall
We use Flockler, a social meda aggregator tool, to curate social media feeds and present social media content that we believe is relevant and inspiring for you. Flockler does not save any information relating to your visit. However, depending on the platform, social media services may store information on you if you interact with the content (e.g. play a video or visit our social media profile).
10.1 Newsletter (URBAN MOBILITY)
On our website, you are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. Which personal data are transmitted to us when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.
We inform our customers and business partners about our offers at regular intervals by means of a newsletter. Our company newsletter can only be received by you if
- you have a valid email address and
- you have registered to receive the newsletter.
For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you entered for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether you, as the owner of the email address, have authorised receipt of the newsletter.
When you register for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the IT system used by you at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration, which is assigned by your internet service provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of your email address at a later date and therefore serves our legal protection.
The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter are used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by email if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or a change in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that you have given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter.
The legal basis for data processing for the purpose of sending newsletters is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
10.2 Newsletter Tracking
Our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Using the embedded tracking pixel, the company can see whether and when an email has been opened by you and which links in the email have been called up by you.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analysed by us in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to your interests. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given in this regard via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by us. Unsubscribing from the receipt of the newsletter is automatically considered a revocation.
Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests in the insertion of personalised advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of our website.
This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, (CRASH Building), Schafjückenweg 2, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service that can be used to organise and analyse newsletter distribution. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. the email address) is stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany or Ireland.
Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, it can analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analysed whether a predefined action (e.g. the purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis through CleverReach newsletters, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/en-de/newsletter-tool/newsletter-reporting/.
The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
If you do not want CleverReach to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this in every newsletter message.
The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members' area) remain unaffected by this.
Our Activities in Social Networks
So that we can also communicate with you in social networks and inform you about our services, we are represented there with our own pages. If you visit one of our social media pages, we are jointly responsible for the processing operations triggered by this, within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR, with the provider of the respective social media platform.
We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers.
Therefore, as a precautionary measure, we would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use may therefore be associated with data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights, e.g. to information, erasure, objection, etc., and the processing in the social networks often takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by the providers, without this being able to be influenced by us. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behaviour is assigned to your own member profile of the social networks.
The described processing operations of personal data are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to be able to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give your consent to data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR. Art. 7 GDPR.
As we do not have access to the providers' databases, we would like to point out that it is best to assert your rights (e.g. to information, correction, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. Further information on the processing of your data in the social networks and the possibility of exercising your right of objection or revocation (so-called opt-out) is listed below for the respective social network provider we use:
(Co-)controller for data processing in Europe:
Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland
(Co-)controller for data processing in Germany:

12. Web Analysis
12.1 Facebook Pixel (Custom Audience)
This website uses the "Facebook Pixel" of Meta Platforms, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Meta"). If explicit consent is given, this can track users' behaviour after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This procedure is used to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help to optimise future advertising measures.
The data collected are anonymous for us and therefore do not allow us to draw conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data are stored and processed by Meta so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Meta can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). Meta and its partners are thus enabled to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook. Furthermore, a cookie may be stored on your computer for these purposes. These processing operations are only carried out when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
In addition, you can deactivate cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes by setting an opt-out cookie via the following websites:
Please note that this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies.
12.2 Google Analytics
On our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies (see point "Cookies") are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as your
1. the browser type/version,
2. the operating system used,
3. the referrer URL (the previously visited page),
4. the host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and
5. time of the server request,
are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services associated with website and internet use for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
These processing operations are only carried out when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
13. Plugins and Other Services
13.1 Google Maps
We use Google Maps (API) on our website. The operating company of Google Maps is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Ireland Limited is part of the Google group of companies headquartered at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps to visually present geographical information. By using this service, for example, our location can be shown to you and a possible journey can be made easier.
Information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there when you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out of your Google user account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
These processing operations are only carried out if express consent has been given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR.
13.2 Google Tag Manager
On this website we use the Google Tag Manager service. The operating company of Google Tag Manager is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Ireland Limited is part of the Google group of companies headquartered at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
With this tool, "website tags" (i.e. keywords that are integrated into HTML elements) can be implemented and managed via an interface. By using the Google Tag Manager, we can automatically track which button, link or personalised image you have actively clicked on and can then record which contents of our website are of particular interest to you.
The tool also triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If you have deactivated at domain or cookie level, this will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
These processing operations are only carried out if express consent has been given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR.
13.3 Google Fonts
Our website uses Google Fonts from Google Inc. The company responsible for the European region is Google Ireland Limited in Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland.
We have embedded the Google fonts locally and not on Google's servers. Thus, no connection to Google servers is established.

Furthermore, when exercising your right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 para. 1 GDPR, you have the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
14.7 Objection Art. 21 GDPR
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e (data processing in the public interest) or (f) (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests) of the GDPR.
This also applies to profiling based on these provisions within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR.
If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or where the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
In individual cases, we process personal data in order to carry out direct advertising. You may object to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising at any time. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object to us processing your data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

You have the right to lodge a complaint about our processing of personal data with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
Routine Storage, Erasure and Blocking of Personal Data
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the legal provisions to which our company is subject.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Duration of the Storage of Personal Data
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the corresponding data are routinely deleted if they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
