Note on data transfer to third countries that are not secure in terms of data protection law as well as transfer to US companies that are not DPF-certified
We use, among other things, tools from companies based in third countries that are not secure in terms of data protection law, as well as US tools whose providers are not certified according to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF). When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these countries. We would like to point out that in third countries with uncertain data protection law, a level of data protection comparable to the EU cannot be guaranteed.
We would like to point out that the USA, as a safe third country, generally has a level of data protection comparable to the EU. Data transfer to the USA is then permitted if the recipient has certification under the “EU-US Data Privacy Framework” (DPF) or has appropriate additional guarantees. Information on transfers to third countries, including data recipients, can be found in this data protection declaration.
Recipients of personal data
As part of our business activities, we work with various external bodies. In some cases, it is also necessary to transmit personal data to these external bodies. We only pass on personal data to external bodies if this is necessary to fulfill a contract, if we are legally obliged to do so (e.g. passing on data to tax authorities), if we have a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO in the transfer or if another legal basis allows the data transfer. When using order processors, we only pass on our customers' personal data on the basis of a valid order processing contract. In the case of joint processing, a joint processing contract is concluded.
