2. Scope of personal data processing

The users’ personal data is collected as necessary to provide a functional website. The collection and
use of these data take place regularly and only with the user’s consent. An exception applies in those
cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is
permitted by law.
Lignopure GmbH is entitled, with your voluntary consent, to collect, process and store, combine with
other data, archive and use your personal data for the purpose of providing information about
Lignopure GmbH products and communication strategy. You give your consent either in writing or by
clicking on the corresponding declaration. In particular, personal data will only be passed on to third
parties if you have given your express prior consent or if we are obliged to surrender the data, for
example due to an official order.

3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

From the moment we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, art. 6
para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Ordinance (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal
data. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data
subject is a party, art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing
operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. When the processing of personal
data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR
serves as the legal basis. In the event of the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person
requiring the processing of personal data, article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is
necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests,
fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, art.
6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
