In the case of the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 1b GDPR as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which the University Hospital is subject, Art. 1c GDPR as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(p) of the data is used. 1d GDPR as legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of the university hospital or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not predominate the first interest, Article 6(0) serves as a matter of absence. 1f GDPR as the legal basis for processing.
