  2. Collection and use of data for contract processing and when opening a customer account.
    We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your order, when you contact us (for example via the contact form or e-mail) or when you open a customer account. Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases, we need the data for processing the contract, or for processing your contact or opening the customer account, and you can not complete the order and/or opening the account or can not send the contact without their information. The collected data can be accessed from the respective data entry forms. We use the data you have provided us with to process contracts and to process your enquiries. After the complete processing of the contract or the deletion of your customer account, your data will be limited to further processing and deleted after the expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or if we reserve the right to use the data beyond what is permitted by law and of which we inform you in this statement.

Depending on the payment service provider you select in the ordering process, we forward the payment data collected for payment processing to the credit institution responsible for the payment and, if applicable, to the payment service providers we have mandated or to the payment service selected. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process.
