Transferring personal data
If required or desired by the supplier / partner, we transfer personal data to business partners (e. g. use of subcontractors for fulfilment of contracts, for billings and services). In addition, personal data are transferred to public authorities (e. g. fiscal authorities) for fulfillment of legal obligations, if this is required for fulfilling the public obligations. We also transfer personal data to our insurance providers, lawyers or collection agency in order to secure, assert or defend a claim.

Transferring personal data to a third country
In principle, personal data are not transferred to a third country. An exception is the processing of import and export deals for which the transferring may also be carried out to third countries for which no adequacy decision of the European Commission is provided. In this case, the transmission takes place based on suitable warranties in the form of standard data protection clauses.

Period of storage
The responsible party must observe legal requirements during contract initiation and implementation. In general, the legal retention period for accounting and tax relevant documents is 10 years. There is a 6 years retention period for business letters regardless of whether they are on paper or in digital form (e mail). Irrespective of the retention period, it is at any time provided that only authorised employees have access to the data. This applies to paper files as well as to digital data in IT systems. When the legal retention period has expired, a data protection compliant destruction of paper-based data and deletion of data in IT systems will be performed within a reasonable timeframe.

Data subject rights
In general, the contract fulfilment / contract initiation requires the processing of personal data. Therefore, the data subject rights must be provided while observing certain requirements from the General Data Protection Regulation: Access, rectification, erasure / right to be forgotten, restriction, objection, right to data portability, withdrawal of consent, right of appeal to a supervisory authority. Provision of data Business partners and interested parties must provide personal data which are required for reasoning, implementation and termination of the contractual relationship or for which there is a legal obligation to collect. Without the provision of data, a conclusion of a contract or the implementation of the tasks included in the order / contract is not possible.
