The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and Section 24 para. 1 no. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defence or enforcement.

If you expressly consent to your data being stored for a longer period of time, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be processed on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO by making a declaration to us with effect for the future.
