If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

f) Pseudonymization Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way 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 separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
