We will only use your personal data without your permission in order to conclude contracts and process requests. Your personal data shall only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for concluding contracts (particular the passing on of order data to suppliers) or for invoicing purposes. In these cases, the scope of the transmitted data shall be restricted to the necessary minimum. Only if you have  previously  granted  permission,  your  data  will  be  used  for  advertisement  and marked research. You are entitled to cancel consent at any time. The transfer of such data to governmental institutions and authorities which are entitled to obtain such information are carried out within the legal obligation to disclose or if we are required to disclose by a court decision. Your personal data shall neither be sold to third parties nor marketed in another manner. The deletion of the personal data stored is carried out if you revoke your consent to the storage, if knowledge of the same is no longer necessary to the fulfilment of the purpose pursued with the storage or if the same is inadmissible on other legal grounds. We save order-related data until the final fulfilment of a contract. After that, the data shall be destroyed.
