To initiate, implement and terminate contractual relationships (Art. 6 para. 1 b DSGVO):

On the basis of legal requirements (Art. 6 Para. 1 c DSGVO):
Compliance with

- existing obligations to carry out compliance screenings (to prevent white-collar crime or money laundering); and

Based on a legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO):

- Where required in the context of compliance screenings: information on relevant court proceedings and other legal disputes involving business partners.

If the aforementioned personal data is not made available or EDAG is unable to collect it, the individual purposes described may not be achieved.

2. Legal basis fort he processing of personal data

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) and lit. f) of the EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter "DSGVO") or, where express consent has been given, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

3. Data erasure and storage duration
If no explicit storage period is specified during collection (e.g. in the context of a declaration of consent), your personal data will be deleted if they are no longer required to fulfil the purpose of storage, unless their temporary further processing is required in particular for the following purposes:

Fulfilment of commercial and tax law retention periods, e.g. in accordance with the German Commercial Code or the German Fiscal Code The periods mentioned there are 2 to 10 years. Preservation of evidence within the scope of the statute of limitations (e.g. §§ 195ff. BGB).

Within our company, access to your data is granted to those entities that require it to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations or the above-mentioned purposes. Service providers and agents employed by us may also receive data for this purpose.

EDAG may transmit personal data to courts, supervisory authorities or law firms if there is a legal obligation to do so under Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c) DSGVO or if it is necessary under Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DSGVO to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that our business partners have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not passing on the data.
