Purposes and legal bases of data processing
When processing your personal data, the provisions of the EU DSGVO and all other applicable data protection regulations are complied with.

Processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Paragraph 1 EU-DSGVO will only take place if this is necessary due to legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in the exclusion of the processing outweighs.
