The purposes of the processing shall primarily depend on the service to be rendered by us.

If necessary, we also process your data in order to protect legitimate interests of ourselves or third parties. This can be the case, for example, with:
- ensuring IT security and IT operations, including testing
- on the prevention and investigation of criminal offences
- for statistical purposes
- for credit assessments with credit agencies
- Based on your consent (Art. 6 para 1a) GDPR, Art. 9 para 2a) in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR)

Processing that was carried out before this revocation is unaffected by this.
