The data collected is indicated on the respective forms. We use the information provided to establish the contract and process your inquiries. Upon conclusion of the contract or removal of your customer account, your data will be blocked from further use and erased from our system once the tax and commercial retention period has expired. We follow this procedure unless you have explicitly consented to the further use of your data or we legally reserve the right to further data usage, about which we inform you below. The removal of your customer account is possible at any time. This can be done by sending us a message via the contact option described below or by using the designated function within your customer account.

In order to process payments, we need to pass on the necessary data to the credit institution authorized with the payment and any payment service providers appointed by us or selected by you in the ordering process.
