The primary legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. Possibly, we use your separate personal consent acc. Art. 6 para. 1 a) and 7 GDPR as data protection permission.
We also process your data in order to fulfill our legal obligations, in particular in the field of tax law. This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR.
As far as necessary, we also process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 f) of the GDPR in order to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties (e.g. authorities). This applies in particular to the investigation of criminal offenses or internal communication and other administrative and marketing purposes.
We also process your data for direct mailing and for existing customers to send information about similar products or services by email, which you can always object to. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR.
