10. Legal basis of processing
Article 6 letter a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the concerned person is a contracting party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on article 6 letter b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on article. 6 letter c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Article 6 letter d of the GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on article 6 letter d GDPR are based. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us, because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He represented the perception, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the concerned person is a pixolus GmbH customer (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 letter f DS-GMO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business activities for the welfare of all of our employees and our shareholders.

12. Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract negotiations.

13. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data;
Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the person concerned
to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a conclusion of contract that an person concerned provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with her. Not release the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.
