Data Collection and Processing

The stored personal data will be deleted in the case of the cancellation of the purchasement activity. If a contract has been concluded, all relevant data will be stored for seven years in order to fulfil our obligation vis-a-vis the tax authorities.

Additionally, the data name, address, goods purchased and the date, on which the goods have been purchased, will be stored for 10 years (product liability). The collected data are processed in accordance to paragraph 96 / 3 TKG and paragraph 6 / 1 lt. a) (consent) and/or lt. b) (necessary for the fulfilment of the contract) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
