2. Overview of the legal basis for data-processing

Art. 6 I letter a of the GDPR serves our company as the basis for processing procedures for which we obtain agreement for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal related data is required for the fulfilment of a contract of which the contracting party is the person affected, as is the case, for example, with processing procedures which are necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of some other service or reciprocal service, then the processing is based on Art. 6 I letter b GDPR. The same applies to such procedures as are required for the conducting of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of enquiries with regard to our products or services. If our company is subject to a statutory obligation under which the processing of personally related data is required, such as, for example, the fulfilment of taxation obligations, then the processing is based on Art. 6 I letter c GDPR. As last resort, processing procedures are based on Art. 6 I letter f GDPR. Processing procedures are based on this legal precept which do not fall under any of the other legal principles referred to earlier, if the processing is required in order to safeguard the justified interests of our company or of a third party, providing that the interests, basic rights, and basic liberties of the party affected do not take precedence.

3. Data acquisition and data-processing on our website
a) Cookies

The Internet pages of Fentimans Ltd do, in part, make use of cookies. Cookies are text files which are deposited by way of an Internet browser on a computer system and are stored there. Cookies do not incur any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make what we have to offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are deposited on your computer and which are stored by your browser.

Website operators have a justified interest in the storing of cookies so that their services can be provided free of any technical defects and optimised. Inasmuch as other cookies are stored (such as cookies for the analysis of your surfing patterns), they are dealt with separately in this Data Protection Declaration.

You can object to this data-processing at any time, if reasons pertain which apply to your particular situation and which provide grounds against data-processing. An e-mail to the data protection officer is all that is needed.

Information within the framework of this contact will be processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a GDPR. This approval allows for the processing of personally related data within the framework of the agreement issued by you. This will be necessary in order for your enquiry to be dealt with.

4. Routine deletion and blocking of personally related data

The person responsible for the processing will only process and store personally related data of the person concerned for the period required for the purpose of the storage to be achieved or inasmuch as this has been provided for by the issuers of European guidelines or directives or by other legislators in laws or regulations which are mandatory for the person responsible for the processing. If the purpose for storage ceases to apply or if a storage period expires which is specified by the issuers of European guidelines or directives or other legislators responsible, the personally related data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the provisions of the law.

5. Rights of the person concerned Rights in relation to the party responsible
