III. General information on data processing

1. Why do we process personal data?

All personal data you have provided to us will be used exclusively for technical administration purposes in connection with our website and to satisfy your requests and specifications; i.e. as a general rule, to answer your queries.

2. Legal basis for processing personal data

If we ask for your consent to process your personal data, the legal basis for processing will be Art. 6 § 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). When processing personal data required for the fulfilment of a contract to which you are a contracting party, the pertinent legal basis is Art. 6 § 1 lit. b GDPR. This also applies to processing operations required to execute pre-contractual measures. If we need to process personal data to satisfy a legal obligation to which our company is bound, Art. 6 § 1 lit. c GDPR is the legal basis.

If data processing is required to uphold a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, except in such cases where your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh such interests, Art. 6 § 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis for processing your personal data.

Recipients or categories of recipient to whom data might be disclosed

Within Schroeder & Schröder GmbH, access to your data is given to those people who require this information to answer your requests and meet your specifications. Service providers and agents commissioned by us can also have access to your data for these purposes.

We do not forward or otherwise transfer your personal data to third parties unless:

This is necessary for the purpose of executing the contract. It may, for example, be necessary to pass on your address and order details to our suppliers when ordering products;
this is necessary for accounting purposes;
you have given your prior consent.

4. Storage period

Personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for storing such data no longer applies. Data may be stored beyond this period, if provided for by EU or national legislators in Union rules, regulations or other provisions to which we are bound. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period stipulated in any of the indicated rules and regulations expires, unless it is necessary to store the data for longer in order to conclude or fulfil a contract.
