2 Collection, processing and use of personal data


You may, in principle, visit our website without our collecting personal data from you.

Following completion of the contract and payment of the purchase price in full, your data will be stored for the periods specified under fiscal and commercial law but will be deleted at the end of these periods.

3 Transmission of personnel data


3.1 Order processing
As part of processing the order, the personnel data we collect will be passed to the transport company tasked with the delivery, if this is necessary for the goods to be delivered. As part of processing payments, we shall pass your payment data to the financial institution tasked with this.
