In this respect, the collection of data means the procuring of data by the data subject themselves. In addition to saving and deleting, processing is also the modification, blocking and transmission of personal data. If necessary, the customer’s inventory and traffic data may be passed on to companies affiliated with the operator of the website. The operator of this website is entitled to provide information to law enforcement authorities and courts for the purpose of prosecution in accordance with the applicable legal provisions. The operator of this website may evaluate the customer’s inventory and traffic data for market research purposes or have them evaluated by third parties. The customer can object to this by contacting the operator via postal mail, email or the contact form provided.

Inventory data

Inventory data is personal data that is necessary to establish or change the contractual relationship between the operator of this website and the user. This includes, but is not restricted to, the user’s name and address, date of birth, telephone, email address and payment details.

The operator of this website will only forward existing data to third parties if this is necessary for the provision of the service.

The operator of this website will only process and use the inventory data for advertising, customer advice or market research to the extent necessary and to which the user has given their consent. The user can revoke the consent in writing at any time.

The provision in Section 29 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) allows the commercial collection, storage or modification of personal data for the purpose of transmission, in particular in connection with the activities of information agencies. Information agencies link personal data that comes from different sources and transmit them to third parties. The operator of this website is obliged to provide such information agencies with the necessary data.

The operator of this website or a third party, to which the operator of this website uses the telecommunications services, collects traffic data in order to enable the use of these services and to be able to draw up the invoice of the respective user. As a rule, the date and time as well as the time zone of the start and end of use, the amount in bytes, the IP address and the type of teleservice used are recorded. The aforementioned data will be stored up to six months after the service has been provided or the invoice has been sent, whichever is later, unless a longer storage is provided within the scope of the statistical functions activated by the user.
