Frequently asked questions
How and when can I drive the nurburgring nordschleife??
The Nurburgring nordschleife opens regularly for public driving sesssions. Normally these are weekday evenings and all day on sundays and holidays.
In addition to these public sessions for normal traffic, there are also private trackdays. These are private events, open to limited numbers. Typically you will find one or two events per month throughout the season.
- If you can’t see the day you want to drive in the list of public openings, then it’s not open to the public on that day.
- If you’re looking for a date in a long time in advance and that whole month shows no opening times, then it hasn’t been published yet.
- Have patience. Rent4ring does not control Nurburgring opening times and cannot guarantee any published times or take responsibility for short notice cancellations.
What is the difference between a basic and all-inclusive rental?
We offer two rental packages:
- All-inclusive is including fuel and lap tickets for the public sessions. There is no need to refuel the car before you return.
- Basic is just for the car. It does not include any tickets, fuel or entry fees. You must refuel the car before you return it. This rate is best for experienced visitors who already have laptickets from a previous visit or a season pass.
Those are the only differences.
Our all-inclusive-packages are the easiest and most convenient way for your nurburgring self drive experience. All you have to do is to come to our store, sign the rental agreement and take the keys for your rental car.
We will take care of that as well as for providing the nordschleife lap tickets included in the chosen package. The prices for all our packages as well as all other rental tariffs are listed here.
What time should I arrive?
The timings should be given to you when you’ve finished booking your car. But normally it looks like this:
- 60-90 minutes before track/session opens: arrival at rent4ring, completion of paperwork and payment.
- 30 minutes before track opens: first briefing begins. If you miss the start, you will have to wait for another briefing at our convenience. You may lose track time.
- Nurburgring opensif you’ve not arrived and not contacted us, we will rent your car to the first person walking through the door.
Always keep an eye on the opening times as they can often change with no warning. We don’t control the opening times.
How do I get to rent4ring?
Just type in this address to your GPS-device:
burgstrasse 1, 53520 Nurburg.
We are located in the heart of the nurburgring: in nurburg, a bit less than one kilometer away from the main entrance to the nordschleife (doettinger hoehe).
Nurburg or Nuremberg? Every month we deal with one or two customers who have gone to nuremberg (nuremberg). This is approximately 400kms and 4-hours of driving away from us. Nurburg is a small village with a massive track around it. Nuremberg is a massive city with a small street-circuit built at the old Nazi parade grounds. Don’t be confused.
Public transportation. The trains will only get you as far as ahrbruck (from the north) or mayen (from the east). These stations are still over 20kms away and the bus services are sporadic at best. Ahrbruck is a very small station in a small village and it might be hours before you see a cab. We always recommend hiring a rental car either from the airport or Cologne main station.
When should I visit the nurburgring??
Let’s be really honest; we know that the eifel weather can be rubbish. We’ve seen snow falling in june, we’ve seen it sunny in december. But there’s a normally a pattern, with august being the best month for the weather. April, may and june can all be quite wet with a chance of fog. Same to be said for september and october. From november to march it can snow at any time, or be clear. Or be frozen.
If you then consider the traffic conditions, the number of visitors driving the track and think about how many closures there will be on the average sunday of public driving, you get a graph like this:
- The GREEN line is our guess at your chances of having the track open, clear and without closures and too much traffic.
- The YELLOW line is our guess at the chances of having perfect weather; dry, sunny and clear
- The RED line is our best guess at when to visit; an average of the green and yellow lines!
- Notice that we think the chances of the track being open are around 5% from december to february. The weather being drivable is also very unlikely. That’s why we shut-down from december 1st to march 1st every year.
- If the weather is good enough to drive, the track is normally very quiet in march and november.
- There are exceptions to the average curve we’ve imagined above. BIG holidays like easter and may bank holiday will always draw huge numbers. Opening the ‘ring for full days of public driving for 2, 3 or even 4 days will pull in lots of visitors and concentrate them into one weekend.
Can I take passengers on the nurburgring?
You can take passengers with you on the nurburgring without registration and without any additional charge. All of our cars have two seats, one driver and one passenger.
How do I book extra laps?
We don’t sell extra laps in advance. If you drive extra laps you will be charged for them when you return the car. On a basic rental you would pay just for the extra distance. With an all-inclusive you will need to pay for the fuel and lap tickets as well.
Can I have an instructor or coach ride with me?
The best way to experience the Nurburgring is with a professional instructor on the passenger seat. Whether it’s your lap #1 or lap #1000, we have instructors available who can help you get the most from your time on the nordschleife.
Typical prices are€149 per hour.
Coaching is not always possible during tourist trips though. Please give us a call or send an email for further information on prices and available dates.
How does the insurance work? How much do I have to pay if I crash?
Our rental prices include a comprehensive insurance with an excess. This excess is your liability, your responsibility.
Liabilities w/o insurance package:
Liabilities with insurance package:
The insurance package costs extra, but also covers third party damage.
This means that you are liable for all car damages caused on and off the nurburgring while you rented the car up to this amount. Nurburgring charges and recovery costs are not included in the basic insurance coverage. Furthermore, we reserve the right to ask for this amount up front, as a "deposit" or deposit. Normally this would be held on a credit card while you’re driving, with the full amount being refunded when the car is successfully returned.
IMPORTANT: all of the following examples are based on the rules of the Nurburgring during tourist rides (public driving)
EXAMPLE #1: driving a swift, you run wide on a corner, hit the grass and spin into the barrier at low speed.
You stop the car, get over the barrier and phone the emergency number provided in the briefing. The marshalls will arrive and assess the situation. If the car is lightly damaged, but they think it’s safe to drive, you will be escorted off the circuit by the nearest exit. You will be taken to the office to pay for the marshalls time€60/hour and any guardrail damage you might have caused. These are your responsibilities. When you return to rent4ring, we will work out how much the repair work will cost. The maximum you would pay for the swift damage would be€6000.
EXAMPLE #2 : you crash hard driving our swift, and the damage to the car is€12000. In the accident you also collide with another driver in a porsche, and his car damages total another€30000. After clean-up, the Nurburgring demand payment of€1800 to replace guardrail hit by your car and cover the costs of marshalling. The recovery truck driver will also require a sum of around€200 to take the car off the track.
In this example, first you’d pay the Nurburgring for the guardrail, clean-up and marshalls, then the recovery truck driver for returning your car to rent4ring. These are your responsibilities. You do not pay anything to the porsche driver or for the guardrail hit by the porsche. When you are recovered to rent4ring we will also need the€6000 excess payment. Our company will take care for the rest of the damage to both the swift and the porsche.
EXAMPLE #3: A BMW driver crashes into you while driving our swift. Your swift hits the guardrail, so does his BMW. Both cars need recovery. You believe that the other driver is 100% at fault and you tell the safety workers that. The track will be closed and the police will be called to any serious accident where the fault is in question. What happens next?
The Nurburgring will demand you pay for the guardrail hit by your car. The BMW driver will have to pay for his guardrail. You and the BMW driver will each have to pay for your own recovery. You will need to pay for the damage to the swift, up to€6000 maximum. If you feel the crash wasn’t your fault, we can instruct our insurance company to attempt to recover the costs from the other driver. If the other driver has a german-registered car, and doesn’t believe it was his fault, this process would probably result in a court date within the next 6 to 18 months. If you win, and your costs are paid by the BMW driver’s insurance, then we will be able to refund your excess and costs. If you lose, there will be no refund and you might be liable for any extra costs incurred in this process.
If that sounds harsh, consider the following points:
- In your own car, or a regular airport rental you probably don’t have any insurance at all!
- Our excesses are lower than our competitors because we put a lot of time and thought in to your safety. Our briefings are extensive and we don’t try and ‘upsell’ you into the fastest car possible.
Please check our general business agreement for further information.
Can I rent RHD cars at rent4ring?
Yes, you can! We currently offer one right-hand drive suzuki swift sport stage 2.
Please make sure to specify during the booking process that you wish to rent a right-hand drive car. Perfect for drivers from the united kingdom, australia, new zealand, south africa, japan and more! (right-hand-drive means the STEERING WHEEL is on the right side of the car)
What is the minimum age for renting a racecar at rent4ring?
The minimum age is 21 years. Drivers must have held their license for 2 years.
Please note: the german road traffic regulations specify that the minimum age for children sitting on the co-driver seat is 12 years or a minimum height of 1,50 meters. Our nordschleife rental cars do not have rear seats.
Is it possible to ride with an experienced driver for a fast cab lap of the ring?
We do offer race cab co-drives during nurburgring trackdays and even VLN practice. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience the nordschleife at race speed with a very experienced driver. Please contact us for available dates, prices and further info.
What if the track closes on my rental day? Or I don’t drive all of my laps?
There are three very different situations to talk about here.
- The nordschleife doesn’t open that day at all: if you arrive, pay in full and attend the briefing, but the track never opens then we will refund you 100%. This situation happens several times a year, normally due to snow, ice or fog. That’s why it’s our standard practice not to release the cars to customers until we know the track is open.
- The Nurburgring changes the opening times: if the track opening hours are changed at short notice, you can ask to downgrade your booking to a package more suitable for the time available. For example, if a half-day session is rescheduled to an evening session on the same day. If you then drive more laps, just pay the extra lap charges at the end, or the original package price. Whichever is best value.
- You don’t drive all of the laps in your package: this used to be a problem, but not anymore. Now we have a new pricing system. You only pay a basic rental rate for each car. This gives you the car for unlimited time, but only the first lap is included in this basic price. You take the car out and drive as many laps as you like, without time limitation as long as the track is open. When you return the car, you will have to pay for the number of laps you have driven.
IMPORTANT NOTE: the rental is not time dependent anymore. You book a car always per day, regardless of how long the advertised opening time is. This way, you never loose anything and you will never be stressed while renting our car.
Should I rent the fastest car I can afford for my first visit?
Some first-time Nurburgring visitors might think that a 136hp suzuki swift is far too slow to have any fun on a race track. They’re VERY wrong. The swift is our most popular rental for very good reasons. It’s both fast and fun to drive. Experienced ‘ringers and first-timers both love it.
And if that doesn’t convince you, here are some more good reasons why you should start with a suzuki swift stage 2 at the Nurburgring:
- On your first 10 laps it doesn’t matter if you have 100bhp or 1000bhp; you can only drive as fast as your track knowledge allows.
- First-time Nurburgring visitors (of all skill levels, including pro racers) often have less fun in the fastest cars and will book the swifts for their return visit!
- Professional racers learning the track will normally take a suzuki swift for their first 20 to 30 laps, before stepping up to the bigger, faster cars. We’re talking about international-level factory drivers who are racing LMP and GT cars.
If you’re sensible, accept your own limitations and promise not to try and go too fast, then we might consider renting you a faster car for your first laps. But we’ll always suggest the swift first!
Unlike some other rental companies (with very high insurance excesses), it’s not interesting for us to sell you a car that’s too fast for you.
Is it required to wear a helmet during tourist rides on the nurburgring?
We provide helmets (with a€50 cash deposit against theft or damage) if you choose to wear one and didn’t bring your own.
It is not mandatory to wear a helmet during tourist sessions though. In fact the vast majority of public drivers do not wear a helmet.
It’s mandatory for trackdays though.
Which payment methods do you offer?
We accept VISA, mastercard, maestro and electronic cash as well as cash payment.
What are the rules for driving the nurburgring nordschleife??
- During public hours the track is a public road.
- Overtaking is only on the left side.
- Slower traffic drives on the right.
- The racing line is not a priority.
- Yellow lights mean danger ahead. Yellow flags mean slow to 30kmh.
Are video cameras allowed on the nurburgring nordschleife??
As of 2013, videos cameras have been allowed for personal use. Cameras must be mounted inside the rental car, and we ask that they are mounted safely and professionally!
Please bring your own camera!
Do I have to pay if the car breaks down, or suffers a technical problem?
This is one reason why we choose to run dataloggers on our cars. If the car breaks and it’s not the driver’s fault, then we will pay for the recovery and find a suitable replacement vehicle with no charges. If it’s the driver’s fault (for example mis-shifting and over-revving the engine, or damaging the car on a high kerb) then the driver would have to pay to repair the car, up to the maximum liability in the contract.
Is there a fine if I accidentally put the wrong gear in and "over-rev"? the engine?
Yes. We want to make sure, each customer gets a healthy car. The engine in the swift has prooved to be very solid, but there is a limit somewhere. We have seen RPM’s of 10.000 and higher on a car with a 7000 RPM redline. No wonder, the engine went buzz.
We needed to change the engine, but the driver at fault only paid his fine, which is€ 150.00 to 300.00 maximum. This way, all our customers can rely on a car that is 100% in shape and will NOT let you down.
Let us give you another example: you rent our car, drive off and in you first lap, the engine let’s you down. We can see in the datalogger, you did not make any mistakes, like putting the wrong gear in. You will get a new car right away and you can keep driving without even worrying about the broken engine.
Important note: if you have no daily experience with manual gearboxes, please don’t try to learn it on a racetrack. We offer also cars with automatic gearboxes, this lets you focus on the road rather than the car itself.
Nurburgring, nordschleife, green hell or Nurburgring.
Whatever you decide to call this circuit, we have the experience and know-how to meet your needs with more than ten years of experience and passion.
Every single one of our rental cars are fully modified for the most demanding racetrack in the world!
Each vehicle comes with full insurance and accident excess. There is also an insurance waiver to reduce the accident excess and also cover additional fees such as recovery costs and also Nurburgring fees. You can rest assured that you are in the best hands – have a safe journey to the Nurburgring!

The data protection declaration of the rent4ring gmbh und co. KG is based on the terms used by the european legislator for the adoption of the general data protection regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
A) personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
B) data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
D) restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
G) controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by union or member state law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by union or member state law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not.

J) third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. Name and address of the controller
Controller for the purposes of the general data protection regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in member states of the european union and other provisions related to data protection is:
Rent4ring gmbh and co. KG
Phone: +49 2691 935735
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of the rent4ring gmbh and co. KG collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the internet site, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the rent4ring gmbh und co. KG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the rent4ring gmbh and co. KG analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Subscription to our newsletters
On the website of the rent4ring gmbh and co. KG, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
The rent4ring gmbh and co. KG informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.
6. Newsletter tracking
The newsletter of the rent4ring gmbh and co. KG contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the rent4ring gmbh und co. KG may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The rent4ring gmbh and co. KG automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
7. Contact possibility via the website
The website of the rent4ring gmbh and co. KG contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
8. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the european legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the european legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.
9. Rights of the data subject
A) right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the european legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
B) right of access
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the european legislator to obtain from the controller free information about his or her personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information.

10. Data protection provisions about the application and use of facebook
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise facebook. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a place for social meetings on the internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
The operating company of facebook is facebook, inc., 1 hacker way, menlo park, CA 94025, united states. If a person lives outside of the united states or canada, the controller is the facebook ireland ltd., 4 grand canal square, grand canal harbour, dublin 2, ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a facebook component (facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding facebook component from facebook through the facebook component. An overview of all the facebook plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.Facebook.Com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on facebook, facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject-and for the entire duration of their stay on our internet site-which specific sub-site of our internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the facebook component and associated with the respective facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.G. The "like" button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then facebook matches this information with the personal facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Facebook always receives, through the facebook component, information about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.
The data protection guideline published by facebook, which is available at https://facebook.Com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to facebook. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to facebook.
11. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. A GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on article 6(1) lit. B GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on art. 6(1) lit. C GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on art. 6(1) lit. D GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on article 6(1) lit. F GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the european legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
12. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on article 6(1) lit. F GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
13. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
14. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; requirement necessary to enter into a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.G. Tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.G. Information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
15. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
