Preliminary remark: The English term for DS-GVO ( German Data Protection Regulation) is General Data Protection Regulation.

II. Definitions
Insofar as we use specific data protection terms in this data protection declaration, we revert to the definitions and definitions of Regulation (EU) 679/2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, on the free movement of such data and on the repeal of Directive 95/46/EC (the so-called "Basic Data Protection Regulation", hereinafter abbreviated to "DS-GVO"). The individual definitions can be found in Art. 4 and Art. 9 DS-GVO.

III. Scope of processing of personal data
1. Principle
We process your personal data only to provide and make available our services as well as our online offers and to make our website available.
A deviation from these purposes will therefore only take place if the person concerned has expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO or in order to safeguard legitimate interests, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned, which require the protection of personal data, prevail (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO) or in such cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for actual reasons or the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

2. Duration of storage and deletion periods
As a matter of principle, we only store personal data as long as this serves a legitimate purpose. If the purpose of the processing no longer applies, we have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure the deletion of personal data or restriction of processing.
We will only store data after the processing purpose has ceased to apply if this is provided for by law, for example pursuant to Art. 17 para. 3 DS-GVO. Such cases are, for example, the existence of legitimate interests in storage, for example during the course of limitation periods for the purpose of legal defence against any claims or, for example, the fulfilment of legal storage obligations.

3. Recipient of personal data
We do not pass on personal data to third parties. As a rule, this only takes place if the data subject has consented to this, if we include so-called "contract processors" (external service providers who act on our behalf and in accordance with instructions within the scope of the provision of services, Art. 4 No. 8 DS-GVO) or other third parties (those responsible for data processing themselves, Art. 4 No. 10 DS-GVO) in the provision of our services, whose involvement is required in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DS-GVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you or if there is a legal obligation to do so. Such recipients are, for example, logistics and payment service providers.
Exceptionally, we pass on data to third parties if we have a justified interest in passing them on pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not passing on your data and in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass them on pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO. This applies, for example, if the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

4. Processing of data in so-called third countries
Your personal data will only be processed in countries within the EU or the European Economic Area that are subject to the scope of the DS-GVO. In all other, so-called "third countries", a transfer of personal data is possible in exceptional cases, e.g. when using contract processors or other service providers in the context of web analysis services. Should we aim at such a transfer, we will inform you accordingly beforehand.
Prior to such a transfer, we ensure that an appropriate level of data protection is maintained in the respective third country or with the respective recipient in the third country in accordance with Art. 44 ff. of the German Data Protection Act. DS-GVO, for example through the existence of a so-called "adequacy decision" of the European Commission or through the use of so-called "EU standard contractual clauses". If a recipient of personal data is located in the USA, the principles of the so-called "EU-US Privacy Shield" can also ensure an adequate level of data protection. For more information on the appropriate and reasonable safeguards to ensure an adequate level of data protection, please contact us at the top of this privacy notice. Information on participants in the EU-US Privacy Shield can also be found at: www.privacyshield.gov/list.

IV. Legal basis
1. Consent
If you give us your consent for certain processing purposes, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO forms the legal basis for this processing. Please note that in this case you have a right of withdrawal (cf. Section V.2).
If it is necessary to obtain the consent of the data subject in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit a DS-GVO, we generally obtain the consent electronically and record the content and granting of consent. In this case, consent is given by means of an "opt-in" procedure (confirming action by ticking the appropriate box) or, if this is necessary to identify the data subject, by means of a "double opt-in" procedure (additional confirmation of identity by receiving an e-mail with a confirmation link that must be clicked on by the data subject). If you give your consent, you can revoke it. For more information on your right of withdrawal, please refer to Section V.1 of this Section.

2. Performance of a contract
When implementing pre-contractual measures or a contract with you, we rely on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO. This applies, for example, to your contact data, which we need to process the contract (e.g. delivery of our goods or services).

3. Fulfilment of a legal obligation
If we process data to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO is the legal basis.

4. Vital interests
If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO is the legal basis.

5. Safeguarding legitimate interests
Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, we process personal data if we protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party and these interests outweigh the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject.

V. Your rights as data subject
In the following we inform you comprehensively about your rights as affected by the data processing. Accordingly, you have the following data subject rights:

1. Right of objection (Art. 21 DS-GVO)
If personal data is processed in order to perform tasks in the public interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e DS-GVO) or to safeguard legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO), you may object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless, we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing outweighing your interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If personal data is processed for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DS-GVO, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for reasons arising from your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

2. Right of withdrawal in the case of consent (Art. 7 para. 3 DS-GVO)
You may revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future - in whole or in part - without incurring any costs. You can send the revocation directly to our data protection officer or to us as the responsible body via a communication channel of your choice. The respective contact data are listed above under number B of this data protection declaration. The legality of the processing of the data covered by the consent remains unaffected by the revocation.

3. Right to information (Art. 15 DS-GVO)
You have the right to request information about your personal data processed by us. This right to information includes
the processing purposes;
the categories of personal data processed by us;
the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed;
if personal data are transferred to so-called "third countries" (cf. Section III 4) outside the scope of the DS-GVO, whether and how we ensure an adequate level of protection by means of suitable guarantees (Art. 45, 46 DS-GVO) for the data recipient in the third country;
the planned storage period, as far as we can assess this; if an assessment and indication of the storage period are not yet conclusively possible, we will at least provide information on the criteria for determining the storage period (e.g. limitation periods, legal storage periods, cf. also Section III 2);
Your right to correction, deletion, restriction of processing and to object to the processing of your personal data (details below);
the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
the origin of the data, unless they have been collected from us; and the existence of an automated decision in an individual case within the meaning of Art. 22 DS-GVO including profiling, which also includes details of the decision criteria (i.e. the logic used) of the automated decision and the consequences and scope for the person concerned.
You have the right to request a copy of your personal data processed by us. You will not be charged for the first data copy, and we will charge you a reasonable fee for any further data copies. If you exercise this right, we will generally make the data copy available in electronic form for lack of other information. The provision is made subject to the rights and freedoms of other persons who may be impaired by the transmission of the data copy.

4. Right to rectification (Art. 16 DS-GVO)
You have the right to demand from us the immediate correction of your incorrect data. You can also ask us to complete your incomplete personal data with additional declarations or communications from you.

5. Right to cancellation (Art. 17 DS-GVO)
You have the right to demand from us the immediate deletion of your personal data stored with us, as far as you have withdrawn your consent (cf. Clause IV 2) to data processing, unless there is another legal basis for data processing;
the storage or other processing of your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and processed;
you have objected to a data processing pursuant to Art. 21 DS-GVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for further processing; in the case of direct marketing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DS-GVO, the deletion will take place unconditionally due to objection;
your personal data has been unlawfully processed;
it concerns data of a child which have been collected in relation to services of the information society pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 DS-GVO.
If we have made personal data public, we will also inform other persons responsible within the framework of what is technically possible and reasonable about their request for deletion, including the deletion of links, copies and/or replications.
The aforementioned rights to the deletion of your personal data do not exist insofar as the processing of your personal data does not involve the use of your personal data:
on the exercise of freedom of expression and information;
to fulfil a legal obligation required by the law of the Union or of the Member States to which we are subject, or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i DS-GVO and Art. 9 para. 3 DS-GVO;

for archive purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DS-GVO, insofar as your right of cancellation presumably makes it impossible or seriously impairs the realisation of the objectives of such processing, or
for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims
is required.

6. Right to limitation of processing (Art. 18 DS-GVO)
You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data (i.e. limit the processing to mere storage) if one of the following cases applies:
You have contested the accuracy of your personal data. For the duration of our verification of accuracy, you may request that your data not be used for other purposes and be limited in this respect.
The processing is unlawful and you reject the deletion of the personal data Art. 17 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO and instead demand the restriction of the use of the personal data Art. 18 DS-GVO.
We no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. In this case, you may request that the processing be restricted to the aforementioned purposes.
You have lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) DS-GVO. As long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate interests or reasons for processing outweigh yours, you can demand that we process your data only for the purpose of checking the aforementioned weighing.
If we have restricted the processing of your personal data at your request, we may and will only process this data - apart from storing it - with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a member state.
If a processing restriction is lifted, you will be informed in advance.

7. Right to data transferability (Art. 20 DS-GVO)
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer such data to another responsible person without being hindered by us, provided that
the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DS Block Exemption Regulation or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS Block Exemption Regulation and
processing is carried out using automated procedures.

As far as it is technically feasible, you can also request us to transfer your personal data directly to another responsible person.
The exercise of the right to data transfer does not affect the right to data deletion (Art. 17 DS-GVO). However, the right to data transfer does not apply to processing that is necessary for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority assigned to us.
You may not exercise the right to data transfer if the rights and freedoms of other persons are thereby impaired.

8. Right of appeal (Art. 77 DS-GVO)
We always process personal data in accordance with the law. Should you nevertheless have reason to believe that we have violated applicable data protection laws, you can at any time contact the competent supervisory authority of the Union or the member states and lodge a complaint. The competent authority is the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence, workplace or place of suspected infringement. See Section I.3 for contact details of the competent supervisory authorities.

C. Information on specific data processing operations
In the following, we explain in detail certain data processing operations in addition to our generally applicable principles (cf. section B above).

I. Data processing when accessing our website
When you visit our website, the browser you use on your terminal device automatically sends information to our website server. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called "log file".

1. Data collected
The following information is automatically collected when you visit our website and stored until it is automatically deleted:
the IP address of the requesting computer,
Information about the browser type and the version used as well as the operating system of your computer, if applicable,
the Internet service provider of the user
Date and time of access to our website,
Website from which the user accesses our website (so-called "referrer URL"),
Websites that the user's system accesses through our website, and
Movements of the user on our website.
Under no circumstances do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. We also use cookies and social media plug-ins when you visit our website, which we explain in more detail in sections II and VI respectively.

2. Purpose and legal basis
With the collection and processing of "log data" we pursue the following purposes on the basis of the following legal basis:
Provision of the contents of our website to the user, which also requires the temporary storage of the IP address to enable the user to communicate with our website. The legal basis for this data processing - i.e. for the duration of your website visit - is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO. In addition, data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (cf. clause IV.5), whereby our legitimate interest follows from the fact that we can make the provision of content possible in the first place.
Ensuring a smooth connection and comfortable use of our website, evaluation of system security and stability as well as for other administrative purposes. This is achieved by processing and storing the IP address in the log files beyond the communication process. This is also based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (cf. No. IV.5) and our just mentioned legitimate interest as well as § 109 TKG.

3. Duration of storage and deletion periods
The data is deleted when the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. Within the framework of the provision of the contents of our website, the data is deleted as a matter of principle when you leave our pages and the session is thus terminated.
If the purposes of system security and stability are pursued, log data is stored for a maximum of seven days after the end of the session. Beyond these seven days, storage or other processing may only take place in such a way that the IP addresses of the users are deleted or changed (e.g. by anonymisation or pseudonymisation) after the expiry of the aforementioned storage period of seven days in such a way that it is no longer possible to assign the log data to an IP address and thus to the user.

4. Possibility of objection and removal
Since the data processing described above is absolutely necessary for the operation of our website, you can only assert a right of objection if your particular situation gives rise to reasons which do not permit processing to the extent described above (cf. Section B.IV.5). As a rule, however, we can prove the above-mentioned mandatory necessity of data processing.

5. Data security
We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed representation of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

II. Cookies
We use cookies on our site. These are small text files that your browser automatically creates and stores on your device (PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware, but information that uniquely identifies the browser when you return to the same website. We have already informed you about the use of cookies via our cookie banner. The information provided here serves as comprehensive and supplementary information.
Setting cookies does not give us any immediate knowledge of your identity; however, depending on the type of cookie placed and the possibility of assigning a cookie to an IP address, it is always possible to establish a personal reference to the user. However, we do not use this possibility to identify the user. The following types of cookies can be used by us during your visit:
Session cookies: Session cookies, also known as transient cookies, store a so-called session ID with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session.
Persistent cookies: Persistent cookies, also known as tracking cookies, store information regarding the settings and preferences you specify when you visit our website. Examples include language settings.
We do not process any information from so-called third-party cookies. These are cookies that are not provided by our web servers, but by third parties.

1. Purpose and legal basis
The use of cookies serves to enable the provision of our website and the complete use of our offer and to make it more pleasant for you. This includes the optimisation of user-friendliness, since, for example, information once entered does not have to be entered again as soon as you call up another website or even another page of our website. Functions such as language settings, a shopping cart, etc. would not be possible without the use of cookies.

Statistical recording
On the other hand, we use cookies in order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These cookies enable us to automatically recognize that you have already visited our site when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

Analysis of surfing behaviour
We also use the session cookies to analyse the surfing behaviour of users on our website, among other things. Analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. The analysis cookies tell us how the website is used and enable us to continually optimise our services. This enables us to adapt our offer and our advertising to your wishes, for example through market research, and to design it according to your needs. The data about users collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. It is then no longer possible to assign the data to the calling user.
The legal basis for the use of our cookies with regard to the provision of our website and the complete use of our offer is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO, since the use is necessary in the sense of contract fulfilment or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as we use cookies for analysis and statistical recording and you have given your consent, we rely on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO and otherwise on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (cf. Section B.IV.5), as the use is also made to safeguard our legitimate interests for the purpose of providing our online services.
If we carry out statistical evaluations or analyses using cookies, the legal basis for processing personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO if the user has given his consent. Otherwise, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (protection of legitimate interests, see Section IV.5) or § 15 Para. 3 Telemedia Act (TMG).

2. Duration of storage and deletion periods
The session cookies are stored by your browser only for the duration of your browser session and are deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain stored on the device you are using for a longer period of time.

3. Objection and removal possibility
You were informed about the use of cookies and referred to this data protection declaration by an information banner when you called up our website. If necessary, you have also given your consent to the processing of the personal data used in this context.

As a user, you can decide for yourself whether and how cookies are used or stored by your browser. You can configure your browser in such a way that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. You can delete cookies that have already been created or have them automatically deleted by your browser. The complete deactivation of cookies can, however, result in you not being able to use all the functions of our website.
You can object to the use of cookies to create pseudonymous usage profiles (see above under Analysis Cookies) at any time with effect for the future; you can exercise your right to object via the cookie offer or via the above-mentioned setting options of your browser.

III. Google Maps

On our web pages we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allows the visitor to conveniently use the map function of Google Maps.
Google Maps is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as "Google"). By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. However, setting up the Google Maps function does not mean that we are responsible for collecting information under data protection law. Google itself is responsible for data protection.
The data is transmitted to Google regardless of whether you have a Google user account that you are logged on to or not. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want this, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and / or needs-based design of its website. Such evaluation is primarily carried out (also for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.
You have the right to object to this use by Google. You can and must then address this to Google. If you would like to know more about the purpose and scope as well as your rights and technical settings for data collection, you can access Google's data protection declaration at: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes data in the USA, a third country (see Section B.III.4). Data protection is guaranteed by the EU-US Privacy Policy (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework).

IV. Contact form

On our website we offer you the possibility to contact us via our contact form. In any case, the IP address of the user and the date and time when your message was sent will be stored when you contact us. We collect and store the following personal data as mandatory information (marked with an " * " as a mandatory field):
Your name
Email address
Telephone number
Your message

1. Purpose and legal basis
We process the aforementioned data for the processing of your request. Other data will only be processed for technical or security reasons (e.g. prevention of misuse and ensuring our system security). The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO (fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures) as well as Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO with regard to the latter purpose, as we have a legitimate interest in the integrity of our website.

2. Duration of storage and deletion periods
All aforementioned data will be deleted as soon as we have processed your request and further clarification is no longer necessary. The deletion takes place under reservation of possible obligations and rights according to number B III 2.

3. Possibility of objection and removal
After you have contacted us, you can withdraw your request at any time and object to further processing of the data. You may also have a right of objection pursuant to Art. 21 DS-GVO (cf. Section B.IV.5).

VI. Social Media Plug-Ins
We use social plug-ins of the social networks Facebook and Instagram on our website on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO Social Plug-ins. Our aim is to make our company better known on these networks, which also represents a legitimate interest in the sense of the aforementioned provision.

We ourselves are not the providers of these social networks, so that we are not responsible for the data protection-compliant operation of the plug-ins. We would nevertheless like to point out that the social networks can link the IP address of your browser session to your own profile on the respective social network via one of their cookies. To ensure sufficient protection, we have implemented the plug-ins using the two-click method. The activation is done by clicking the button next to the plug-in, the use by clicking the button of the plug-in itself.

1. Facebook
We use the plug-in of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. You can recognize the Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo, the "Share" button or the "Like" button on our website (The Facebook plug-ins are listed here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/Plug-Ins/). Activation establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server via the plug-in. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address.
We would like to point out again that as the provider of the pages, we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted by Facebook and that we are not responsible for the data processing of Facebook. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can therefore be found in Facebook's data protection information (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

2. Instagram
Our website also uses so-called plug-ins from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram"). The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram camera".
When you visit a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser connects directly to Instagram's servers. Instagram sends the content of the plug-in directly to your browser and integrates it into the page. This integration tells Instagram that your browser has accessed the appropriate page on our site, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transferred directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can directly associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the "Instagram" button, this information is also sent directly to and stored on an Instagram server. The information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.
If you do not want Instagram to associate the data collected through our website directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website. For more information, see Instagram's Privacy Policy (https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388).

VII. Including YouTube videos
YouTube videos are included on our website. When these videos are played, they are accessed via YouTube itself (http://www.YouTube.com). We use the "extended data protection mode" so that no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. A data transfer to YouTube does not take place until you play the videos. We have no influence on this data transfer.
The data that we have already mentioned under C.I.1 will then be transferred to YouTube. If you maintain a user account with YouTube or Google and are also logged in when you visit our website, the data will also be assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of YouTube and/or Google before playing the video.
YouTube stores your data in the form of user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and / or tailoring its website to suit your needs. The aim of this use is to provide individual advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. On the other hand, you have the right to object (see section B.V.1) which you must, however, address to YouTube itself. For further information, in particular on your rights and privacy settings, please refer to Google's privacy policy at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

VIII. Contracts
If you are our contractual partner, we have provided the essential information regarding our data processing of your personal data as the responsible party in our general terms and conditions. Please note that in this context we also use our General Information under Section B as a basis for data processing in contracts. The following information is therefore only given in addition to our General Terms and Conditions and to our General Information under Section B. Should you have any further questions, please contact us at the contact details given in Section B.I.1.

1. Purpose and legal basis
With the collection of the personal data received within the framework of the conclusion and execution of the contract, we pursue the purpose of being able to fulfil our obligations under the contract. For example, we need your contact data in order to make our services available to you. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DS-GVO. Data will only be passed on to third parties under the conditions of Clauses B.III.3 and B.III.4. Categories of recipients in our contracts include payment service providers and logistics service providers. Failure on your part to provide the data may mean that the contract cannot be concluded and/or executed.
The legal basis for the aforementioned data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO for the fulfilment of the contract and the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

2. Duration of storage and deletion periods
As a matter of principle, we only store personal data as long as this serves a legitimate purpose. If the purpose of the processing no longer applies, we have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that personal data is deleted or that it is made unrecognisable or restricted.
After the processing purpose has ceased to apply, we will only store the data if this is provided for by European or national legislation in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which our company is subject. Such cases are, for example, the existence of legitimate interests in storage, for example during the course of limitation periods for the purpose of legal defence against any claims or, for example, the fulfilment of legal storage obligations. If the further storage described above is no longer covered by the aforementioned standards, we shall immediately delete the data or restrict its processing, unless the further storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion of a contract or for other purposes.

3. Possibility of objection and removal
The data processing required for the fulfilment of the contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures is not subject to any right of objection. In all other respects you are entitled to the rights of data subjects already mentioned under section B.V.
