Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information and details such as your name, your address or other mailing address, or phone number. This also includes an email address if it includes such a reference to your name that it makes you identifiable. Information that can not be used to determine your identity is not considered to be personal data. Such information is, for example, body size, gender, age or education.
Use and Disclosure of Data
We will use automatically or manually collected personal data related to you to only to respond to your inquiries, to process contracts we have concluded with you, and for technical administration.
We will only disclose personal data to third parties under a limited extent under the following circumstances:
In order to process the payment process at the appropriate payment service
If you have explicitly consented to the disclosure of the data
If we are legally obligated to disclose the data (e.g. in response to a court or administrative order)
In no case will the data be sold.
Deletion of Data
You have the right to revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data at any time. The deletion of your personal data is carried out when you have revoked your consent and storage is no longer necessary for processing of contracts. In any case we will delete your personal data if we do not longer need it for our services or if the storage gets prohibited for legal reasons.
