Data storage

In order to facilitate the purchasing process and for subsequent contract processing, the web shop operator stores the IP address of the connection owner in the form of cookies, as well as all required documents.

The following data is also stored by us for contract processing:

The data provided by you is required for the fulfilment of the contract and for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. It is not possible to conclude a contract without this data. The data collected will not be transmitted to third parties, with the exception of the transmission of payment data (credit card data) to the processing bank/payment service provider for the purpose of debiting the purchase price, to the shipping company (transport company) commissioned by us to deliver the goods and to our tax advisor to fulfil our tax obligations.

If you cancel the purchase process, the data stored by us will be deleted. If a contract is concluded, all data resulting from the contractual relationship will be stored until the expiry of the retention period under tax law (7 years). The transmitted name, address, purchased goods and date of purchase are also stored until the expiry of product liability (10 years). Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of § 96 Para. 3 TKG and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit a (consent).
