To fulfil contractual obligations (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR)
The purposes of the data processing result from the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which precede a contractually regulated business relationship and in the fulfilment of the obligations under contract.
To comply with a legal obligation (Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR)
The purposes of data processing arise in individual cases from legal requirements. These legal obligations include, for example, the fulfilment of record keeping and the identification of obligations, e.g. in the framework of money laundering regulations, tax control and reporting obligations and data processing in the case of enquiries from authorities.
To fulfil legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR)
It may be necessary to process your personal data beyond the actual performance of the contract. Our legitimate interests include: the selection of suitable business partners, assertion of legal claims, defence against liability claims, access controls, information on possible compliance violations, prevention of offences and the regulation of damages resulting from the business relationship.
When concluding a contract, we occasionally collect creditor data about your creditworthiness in order to fulfil the aforementioned legitimate interests. We use the data of credit agencies to verify creditworthiness. The credit agencies store data that you receive, for example, from banks or companies. This data includes: surname, first name, date of birth, address and information on payment behaviour. You can obtain information about the data that credit agencies have available about you directly from the respective credit agencies.
