2 Purpose, Categories of Personal Data, Legal Basis and Retention
2.1 Categories of your Personal Data and purposes of Our processing
We process the following categories of your Personal Data for the following purposes:
Your business contact details (e.g., name, position, business email address, business telephone number and address, department, User-ID), your business function, and any personal data contained in the content of your emails or web form submissions for the purposes of
(1) communication by email, telephone or otherwise;
(2) customer/supplier relationship and contract management;
(3) enterprise resource planning functions (e.g., sales and distribution and quality management) and financials (e.g., invoicing, financial accounting and management accounting)
2.2 Legal basis for Our processing of your Personal Data
Our processing of your Personal Data is allowed by law. The corresponding legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation EU 2016/679 (hereinafter the "GDPR), permitting the processing of Personal Data for the purposes of Our legitimate interests. To the extent a customer or supplier is an individual, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. (b) GDPR instead, i.e. the processing of Personal Data is permitted for the purpose of the performance of a contract.
In case you are an employee of one of our customers and/or suppliers, We are permitted to process your business contact details for the purposes set out in Sec. 2.1 as such processing is necessary for Us to pursue Our legitimate interests. The performance of the contract concluded between Us and your employer is not possible without processing the respective Personal Data of you. We only process Personal Data necessary for the reasonable performance of the contract. We will not process any of your Personal Data beyond the purpose of reasonably performing the contract. There are no overriding interests apparent that would require Us to exclude the processing of your Personal Data. In fact, you will yourself be interested in Us processing your Personal Data to the extent necessary for the reasonable performance of the contract as you may otherwise not fully comply with your own employment relationship with your employer.
2.3 Do you have to provide your Personal Data to Us?
The provision of your Personal Data is not a statutory or contractual requirement. This means that you are not obliged to provide your Personal Data to Us.
The consequence if you do not provide your Personal Data to Us is simply that We will not be able to communicate with you and may potentially not be able to fully proceed with Our business relationship with you and/or your employer.
2.4 Do We make automated decisions on you?
We do not make any automated decisions solely on automatic processing, including profiling, which would produce legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affect you.
2.5 Sources from which We have obtained your Personal Data
Besides from yourself, We may have obtained your Personal Data set out in Section 2.1 above from the following sources: Other colleagues of you, e.g., if they step in for you in case of illness, holiday, etc.; email chains of others may contain business contact details of you (e.g., with regard to past orders), being sent from EU countries as well as non-EU countries depending on the sender/recipient. These sources are not publicly accessible.
2.6 Retention periods
The retention periods for Personal Data depend on the respective purpose the Personal Data are processed for and the respective tool such data are processed in. It is not possible to outline the various retention periods in a reasonably intelligible format under this notice. The criteria used to determine the applicable retention period are that We will retain Personal Data set out under Sec. 2.1 above for as long as (i) necessary for the respective purpose, (ii) necessary to carry out Our business relationship with you, (iii) you have consented to, and/or (iv) required by applicable statutory retention laws.

There is no adequacy decision by the European Commission for such country; this means that the level of data protection in such country is not comparable with the level of data protection in the European Union.

As to such purposes, you will find more information under Sections 2.1 and 2.2 above.|
To the extent Our processing of your Personal Data is based on your consent, you also have the right to withdraw your consent, without affecting the lawfulness of Our processing based on your consent before its withdrawal.
Exercising any of your rights mentioned above is subject to legal prerequisites and, in certain circumstances, your rights may be limited due to legal exceptions set out, in particular, in Arts. 17 para. 3 and 22 para. 2 GDPR as well as, for Germany only, in Secs. 34 para. 1, 35 para. 1, 36 and 37 para. 1 FDPA.
