Accordingly, we are allowed to process the data necessary for us to perform a task which falls to us.

If necessary, your data will be sent to the competent supervisory and auditing authority to exercise their respective supervisory powers.

To prevent IT security risks, in the case of electronic transmission data can be forwarded to the Landesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (Bavarian State Office for Security in Information Technology) and processed there based on Art. 12 ff of the Bavarian eGovernment Act (BayEGovG)).
