We only collect and use personal data of our users to the extent that is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services.
The collection and use of personal data of our users normally only takes place after the user’s consent. An exception applies in such cases where it is no possible to obtain consent beforehand based on the circumstances and the processing of the data is permitted by other statutory regulations.

2) Fulfilment of a contract When processing personal data of a person who is a contractual party is necessary for fulfilment of said contract, Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b of the GDPR applies as a legal basis.
