Purpose of Processing and Legal Basis

We process personal data in the course of contacting you, when you provide us with business cards or in the course of conducting the business and customer relationship.

In most cases, this is the contact data of the internal contact person provided to us by our customers or personal data contained in concluded contracts.


These data can be:


Name, first name, company, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile number, position in the company

This data is processed exclusively for thepurpose for which you have given us the data. Such purposes can be e.g.:

  • When handing over a business card, the purpose is to establish contact at a later date to discuss common business interests.
  • When naming a contact person, the purpose is the implementation of concrete contractual measures.

Processing of this data may occur in our CRM system, in project documentation and working papers, in contracts, and in other working materials.

The legal basis for theprocessing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as the data is processed for the initiation or implementation of a contractual relationship.

In addition, in the case of employees as contact persons, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, as the processing is carried out in our legitimate interest.

This legitimate interest arises from the fact that the data was handed over to us for the purpose of maintaining contacts and to make contact at a later date. In addition, the processing of contact person data is necessary to maintain a business relationship.
