10.Reception of personal data
The data collected by us will only be passed on if this is necessary to fulfill the contract or to provide the technical functionality of the website or the online shop or if there is another legal basis for data transfer (e.g. if we are legally obliged to disclose data (information to law enforcement authorities and courts; information to public bodies that receive data due to legal regulations, e.g. social security agencies, tax authorities, etc.) or if we have to involve third parties who are obliged to maintain professional secrecy to enforce our claims).
A part of the data processing can be done by service companies. These may include, in particular, data centers that store our website and databases, IT service providers who maintain our systems, logistics and shipping service providers or marketing and customer service providers, as well as consulting companies. If we pass on data to service providers, they may only use the data to fulfill their tasks. The service providers have been carefully selected and commissioned by us. They are contractually bound by our instructions, are bound to secrecy, have suitable technical and organizational measures to protect the rights of the persons concerned and are regularly checked by us.
11. Storage period
Usually, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations for which we collected the data. We will then delete the data immediately, unless we still need the data until the expiry of the statutory limitation period for evidence purposes for claims under civil law or due to statutory retention requirements.
For example, we have to keep contract data for evidence purposes for three years from the end of the year in which the business relationship with you ends. This is because any claims become statute-barred after the statutory limitation period at the earliest at this point in time.
Even after the regular limitation period, we still have to save some of your data. We are obliged to do this on the basis of legal documentation obligations that may result from the Commercial Code, the Tax Code, the Banking Act, the Money Laundering Act and the Securities Trading Act. The deadlines specified there for the retention of documents are two to ten years.

You can also request the deletion of your data. If, in exceptional cases, deletion is not possible due to other legal provisions, the data will be blocked so that they are only available for the legal purpose. (Art. 17 GDPR)
You can also have the processing of your personal data restricted if, for example, you have doubts about the correctness of the data. (Art. 18 GDPR)
You also have the right to data portability, which means that we can send you a digital copy of the personal data you have provided on request. (Art. 15 GDPR)
You also have the right to object to data processing – which has its legal basis in Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR – provided there are reasons for this that result from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct mail. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which we will implement without giving reasons. You also have the right to revoke your consent at any time. As a result, we will no longer continue the data processing based on this consent in the future. Your revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until the revocation.
