In addition, the disclosure of personal data may become necessary in the course of governmental/judicial action for the purpose of gathering evidence, prosecuting crimes or enforcing civil claims.

Credit and financial service providers (settlement of payment transactions)
Tax consultant or business and payroll tax and tax auditor (statutory audit mandate)
Your data will only be processed within the European Union and countries within the European Economic Area (EEA).
We process and store your personal data as long as this is necessary to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. If the data are no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, they are regularly deleted.

As part of the contractual relationship, you must provide the personal data that is required for the commencement, performance and termination of the contractual relationship and for the fulfilment of the associated contractual obligations or which we are legally obliged to collect.

If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The objection can be made without form with the subject “Objection” under indication of your name, your address and your date of birth and should be addressed to the responsible place specified above.
