We use your personal data to fulfill pre-contractual, contractual and post-contractual as well as legal obligations (art. 6 para. 1 b, c GDPR)

We process your personal data even when we or a third party have a legitimate interest in it: e. g. we can obtain credit information or have debts collected to guard against credit risks. As part of a business contact we process the contact data of the points of contact of our business partners. We also use personal data as part of direct advertising unless you object to it.

We use your personal data, if you agree (art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR)
 
In isolated cases we need your specific approval to process your personal data. In such cases we ask for your approval beforehand and inform you separately.
 
4. Your obligation to provide personal information
 
If we are supposed to do something for you (e. g. as part of an agreement), we will only do so, if you provide us with all required personal data. If you do not want to supply the data, we will not be able to act. In some cases there is also a legal obligation to provide us with your personal data.
 
We obtain personal data from these sources.
 
We process the personal data we receive from you. Additionally, if this is permitted, we process personal data which we obtain from public sources (e. g. record of debtors (creditworthiness data)) or other sources (e. g. credit bureaus (creditworthiness data)). Upon request we would be happy to provide you with more information.

If you inform us that personal data are incorrect, we are required to correct these personal data. According to art. 16 GDPR you have a right to a correction.
 
Furthermore you have a right to have your personal data deleted, if you have good cause based on art. 17 GDPR in conjunction with § 35 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) e. g. if the data are no longer needed for the pursued purpose.
 
In rare cases (e. g. if it is not clear whether the personal data are correct or incorrect or if we would like to delete your personal data, but you do not want this) you may request the limited processing of your personal data. For this, the requirements stipulated in art. 18 GDPR must be fulfilled.
 
You can withdraw your agreement to the processing of your personal data at any time with effect for the future (art. 21 GDPR).
If for example you do not wish to receive any direct mail from us, you may object at any time and we will no longer use your personal data for direct mail.
If you object to the processing of your personal data, the lawfulness of the handling based on your earlier agreement until the objection will not be affected.
 
According to art. 20 GDPR you have a right to data portability. Among other things this means that you may be able to initiate a transmission of the personal data from one responsible party to another responsible party as long as this is technically possible.
