  1. Legal basis for processing

Art.6 serves as the legal basis for processing operations of personal data whereby we obtain permission for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to conclude an agreement of which the party concerned is a party, as is the case for processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing takes place based on Art.6, paragraph 1 sub b GDPR.

The same applies to processing that is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in case of questions about our products or services.

If Median is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as compliance with tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 sub c GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company would have been injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other essential information should be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Article 6 paragraph 1 sub d GDPR.

Eventually, operations based on Article 6, paragraph 1 sub f GDPR may be based. This legal basis requires processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases if processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject are paramount. Such processing is particularly permitted because it is specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it considered that a legitimate interest can be presumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).

  1. legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for concluding the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-delivery.

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal information is required in some cases by law (e.g. tax laws) or for contractual agreements (e.g. information about the contractor).

For example, the person involved is obliged to provide personal information when our company enters into a contract with him. Not providing the personal details would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed.

Before the personal data is delivered by the person concerned, they can contact our data protection officer. The data protection officer informs the person concerned why the provision of personal data is required by law or contractually necessary and what the consequences are of not providing the personal information.
