The data processing is carried out at your request and is necessary according to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the stated purposes for the reasonable processing and the mutual fulfilment of obligations arising out of the contract. We process the data which we have received from you within the scope of our business relationship as well as data which we have collected from publicly accessible directories (e.g. the commercial register).

The personal data collected by us for the business relationship will be stored until the expiry of the statutory storage period and deleted thereafter unless we are obliged to store it for a longer period in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR due to tax and commercial law storage and documentation obligations (under the German Commercial Code (HGB), Penal Code (StGB) or Tax Code (AO)) or you have consented to storage beyond this period in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.


3. Transfer of data to third parties

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. Your data will not be transmitted to a country outside the EU. Insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of contracts with you pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) and (f) GDPR, your personal data will be transferred to third parties. This includes in particular the following transfers:

  • to our tax advisor within the scope of financial accounting;
  • to our lawyers in order to collect claims if necessary and to enforce claims in court;
  • to freight forwarders and logistics service providers to meet delivery obligations;
  • to credit institutions and payment service providers for the settlement and handling of payments;
  • to public authorities in justified cases, e.g. the tax authorities;
  • to IT service providers to maintain our IT infrastructure and data security.
  • If you order on account, we carry out an assessment of the credit risk using a credit agency.

The data disclosed may be used by the third party exclusively for the aforementioned purposes.

To some extent, we use other external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are checked regularly.
