- Collection, processing, use and storage of personal data
We protect your data. All personal data is collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable provisions on the protection of personal data primarily for the purpose of the services you have ordered and for processing your enquiries. Third parties will only be provided with the stored data in the manner described in this declaration. Naturally, no personal data will be passed on to advertising companies.
Your data will be stored in personal form only for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed or until the expiry of any warranty, guarantee, limitation and statutory retention obligations, unless otherwise specified in these data protection provisions. Data within the scope of an enquiry (no business process arises as a result) will be deleted after 6 months. Data generated within the scope of a business process is stored for a period of 7 years. However, a longer retention of data may result from a specific emerging procedure.
In the course of operating our website, we use software service providers and agencies that may gain access to your personal data in the course of their activities. They have undertaken to comply with the applicable data protection provisions vis-à-vis us. You can request more information about the service providers we use at email@example.com.
