Sect. 2 Inventory data

(1) Purpose of data processing

Your personal data you provide us during the ordering process are necessary for the conclusion of a contract with us. You are not obliged to provide your personal data. However, we would not be able to send you the goods without your address. For some payment methods we ask for the necessary payment data in order to pass them on to a payment service provider commissioned by us. Hence, the processing of your data collected during the ordering process is soley for the purpose of contract performance.

If you send us a request by e-mail or by using the contact form, etc. before concluding the contract, we process the obtained data to carry out pre-contractual measures and answer your questions about e.g. our products.

(2) Legal basis

The legal basis for such processing is set out in Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR.

(3) Recipient categories

Payment service provider, shipping service provider, hosting provider, if necessary merchandise management system, suppliers if necessary (drop-shipping).

(4) Duration of Storage

We store the data required for contract execution until the statutory warranty and, if applicable, contractual warranty periods expire.

We store the data required under commercial and tax law for the statutory periods, generally ten years (cf. § 257 German Commercial Code (HGB), § 147 Regulation of Taxation (AO)).

The data processed for the execution of pre-contractual measures will be deleted as soon as the measures have been carried out and the contract cannot be concluded.
