Where do we get your personal data from?

In principle, your data is collected from you. The processing of the personal data provided by you is necessary to fulfill contractual or pre-contractual obligations resulting from the contract concluded with us or for the purpose of concluding a contract with us. Due to your obligation to cooperate, it is essential to provide the personal data requested by us, otherwise we will not be able to meet our contractual obligations. Otherwise, accounting and/or tax disadvantages for you cannot be ruled out.

The provision of your personal data is necessary as part of pre-contractual measures (e.g. master data collection for product demonstrations and contract negotiations with interested parties). If you do not provide the requested data, a contract cannot be concluded.

In order to provide our services, it may be necessary to process personal data that we receive from other companies or other third parties, e.g. tax offices, your business partner or similar. Permissibly and for the respective purpose.

Personal data can also be made available to us via our external service providers, insofar as this is necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship (e.g. payment service providers or support service providers).

Further information can be found in your contract documents for the respective product or service (order form, service contract, service descriptions, etc.).
