Data Processing

III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of personal data processing

In general, the GFZ on behalf of the ICDP only processes personal data collected from users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website with the relevant content and services. As a rule, personal data provided by users is only processed with the respective user's consent. Exceptions apply in cases where the user’s prior consent cannot be obtained on factual grounds and statutory regulations permit the processing of personal data.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6 no. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis when the ICDP obtains a data subject's consent to the processing of his/her personal data.

Art. 6 no. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis when processing personal data for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. The same applies to any processing measures that are required if steps are to be taken before entering into a contract.
