The legislator requires that personal data be processed in a lawful
manner, in good faith and in a manner that is comprehensible to the data
subject concerned ("lawfulness, processing in good faith,
transparency"). In order to ensure this, we have provided an explanation
below of specific legal terms which are also used in this Privacy
1. Personal data
"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or
identifiable natural person ("data subject"); an identifiable natural
person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in
particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an
identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or
more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental,
economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
"Processing" means any operation or set of operations which is performed
on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by
automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation,
structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation,
use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making
available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or
3. Restriction of processing
"Restriction of processing" means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
"Profiling" means any form of automated processing of personal data
consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal
aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or
predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work,
economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests,
reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
"Pseudonymisation" means the processing of personal data in such a
manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific
data subject without the use of additional information, provided that
such additional information is kept separately and is subject to
technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data
are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
6. Filing system
"Filing system" means any structured set of personal data which are
accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised,
decentralised or dispersed on a functional or geographical basis.
"Controller" means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency
or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the
purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the
purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member
State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination
may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
"Processor" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or
other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
"Recipient" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or
another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third
party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal
data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union
or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing
of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with
the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the
10. Third party
"Third party" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency
or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons
who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are
authorised to process personal data.
"Consent" of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed
and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or
she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies
agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Lawfulness of processing
The processing of personal data shall be
lawful only if and to the extent that there is a legal basis for doing
so. Pursuant to points (a) – (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, the legal basis
for processing may be as follows:
a. the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
b. processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which
the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of
the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
c. processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
d. processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
e. processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out
in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested
in the controller;
f. processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate
interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where
such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and
freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data,
in particular where the data subject is a child.

establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection
of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of

subject may contact us at any time using the contact details provided

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you
shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal
data concerning yourself for such marketing, which includes profiling to
the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where you

Without prejudice to any available administrative or non-judicial
remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory
