Handling of personal data

Personal data is information which can be used to identify an individual, so details which can be traced back to a person. These include names, email addresses or telephone numbers. Data relating to preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites someone views also count as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is legally permitted, or the user consents during data collection e.g. as part of an order. The provider will then only use the data provided by the user in order to fulfil and complete the order.
You have the right to be informed about your person-related data, their origin and addressee and the purpose of data processing as well as the right to correction, blocking or deletion of those data at any time and free of charge.
