If you exercise your right to object, please tell us why we should not process your personal data in the way that we do. If there are reasonable grounds for your objection, then we will consider the circumstances and either stop processing your data or alter the way in which we do so, or else explain to you why there are compelling legitimate reasons for us continuing to process your data.

8. Transfer of data to third parties and/or third-party suppliers

(1) We shall only transfer your data to third parties if this is necessary for contractual purposes, for instance on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter b GDPR, or if it can be justified on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f GDPR.

(3) If reference is made to third-party suppliers in this privacy statement and their named headquarters are in a third country, then you should assume that data will be transferred to the country of domicile of the third-party supplier. We shall only process your data in a third country if this is necessary in order to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter b GDPR), on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter a GDPR), because of a legal obligation (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter c GDPR) or on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f GDPR).

9. Deletion of data

(1) The data we store shall be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and provided there are no statutory retention obligations which prevent their deletion. If the data are not deleted because they are required for other, legally admissible purposes, we shall restrict their processing, i.e. the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for instance, to data which must be retained in accordance with commercial or tax legislation.

(2) Legal regulations require some data to be retained for six years pursuant to Art. 257 Para. 1 HGB (Commercial Code) (trading books, inventories, commercial letters, booking documents, etc.) and others for ten years pursuant to Art. 147 Para. 1 AO (Tax Code) (books, records, status reports, booking documents, commercial and business letters, documents relevant to taxation, etc.).

 (2) We will update our privacy statement from time to time as our offerings become more technically sophisticated. As long as changes to the privacy statement do not relate to the use of existing data, the new privacy statement shall be valid from the time it was updated on our website. Any changes to the privacy statement with implications for the use of data we have already collected shall be made only if you could reasonably be expected to find these acceptable. In such cases, we shall notify you in good time beforehand by email, on our website, in our application, or in some other form. You are entitled to object to the validity of the new privacy statement within four weeks of receipt of notification. Should you object, we reserve the right to terminate our contractual relationship with you.
