An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-DSGVO) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. In the case of processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
