    At the Company, those bodies within the Company receive your data that are required to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. Some data is to be disclosed under strict contractual and legal requirements:

    Due to legal obligation:

    In certain cases, we are required by law to transfer data to a requesting public authority. Upon submission of a court order, we are obliged provide owners of copyright and ancillary
    copyrights with information about customers who are alleged to have offered copyright protected works on internet file-sharing sites. In these cases, our information contains the
    user ID of an IP address allocated at the time requested and, if known, the name and address of the customer.

    necessary in the event of attacks on the network infrastructure for legal or criminal prosecution. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 c GDPR.

    To external service providers for data processing:

    When service providers get access to our customers’ personal data, this usually takes place in the course of so-called order processing of personal data. This is expressly provided for
    by law. In this case, the Company remains responsible for the protection of your data – in addition, the processor may also be responsible. The service provider works strictly in
    accordance with our instructions, which we ensure by means of strict contractual regulations, technical and organizational measures and supplementary controls.

    The Company works with service providers as processors. These are Group companies of the Company and service providers for IT services (e.g. for technical-administrative tasks
    and for usage analysis), book keeping services, telecommunications, consulting and advisory services as well as sales and marketing.

    The data protection regulations for instruction-bound order processing of personal data are complied with.

    To service providers:

    The Company may transfer your personal data to service providers in order to carry out supporting business services for the purposes of legitimate interests.

    If data are transferred, the Company will have contracts with these service providers in place to ensure that the data is handled according GDPR rules and has been obligated to an
    appropriate level of data protection.

    Beyond this, we do not transfer data to third parties unless you have given your express consent, the transfer is obviously necessary for the provision of an offer or service requested by you or this is provided for by law. We also do not intend to transfer your data beyond this to a third country or international organization.

    right to rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your data in accordance with data protection regulations, a right to object to the processing as well as a right to data
