We process your personal data provided to us as part of the existing contractual and pre-contractual relationships between us. The scope, nature, purpose and necessity of processing depend on the respective underlying contractual relationship. For this purpose, we store and process your data in the computer systems we use.

 In particular, the following data may count:

  • Order details
  • Data for payment transactions

Processing is limited to the data necessary and useful in response to requests and / or for the performance of the contract. The transfer of personal data to third parties takes place only if it is necessary for the purpose of providing the service or in the context of the organization of our business, to process financial accounting and to comply with legal obligations. In this case, only the data necessary and appropriate for the performance of the contract or financial accounting as well as for compliance with legal obligations will be provided to external service providers. The processing by us takes place in accordance with your instructions or the statutory provisions. Legal basis: The processing of personal data as well as their transfer to third parties is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b) GDPR and serves the fulfillment of the contract between you and us. Otherwise, we only pass on data to third parties if there is a legal obligation, Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. c) GDPR or if there is a legitimate interest, Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f). GDPR. This is the case, for example, when it is necessary to pursue our claims.

This does not affect your statutory detention obligations.

We use the services to ensure our online presence of the Internet Service Provider on whose server the website is stored (hosting) and which makes our website available on the Internet.

Data transmission to third countries

The adoption of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has created a single basis for data protection in Europe. Your data will therefore be processed mainly by companies requested by the GDPR. If the processing is carried out through third party services outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, they must comply with the special requirements set out in Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. This means that that the processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as an officially recognized level of data protection in the EU or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations, the so-called “standard contractual conditions”.
