An exception applies for such cases in which it is not possible to obtain consent in advance for factual reasons and the processing of data is legally permissible.

If consent of the affected person is obtained for the pre-processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for this.

The affected person’s personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage lapses. Storage can occur beyond this point if this is intended for Union regulation, legislation or other provisions set out by a European or national legislator to which the Controller is subject.
