1. Purpose of data collection, processing or use

The main purpose of the collection, processing and use of data is the fulfilment of customer orders. A secondary purpose is supplier support, as well as interest management. Specifically, these include: customer administration and acquisition, appointment management, contract processing, service processing, invoicing, goods purchase and payment transactions.


2. Legal basis of data processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data of our customers is Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR according to which it is permissible to process data to ensure fulfilment of a contract with the person concerned.


3. Recipient or categories of recipients to whom the data is disclosed

In principle, we do not disclose the personal data of our customers to third parties, unless a transfer is mandatory under law or for the purpose of order fulfilment. In this case, the persons concerned will be informed if they are not already aware of it.


4. Data transfer to third-party countries

Data transfer to countries outside the EU or EEA (third-party countries) is not foreseen.


5. Period of personal data retention

In principle, we delete the data if the purpose for which the data was collected is no longer relevant, e.g. upon termination of a contractual relationship, insofar as no statutory retention requirements preclude deletion. If deletion is not possible, e.g. for data stored in an electronic archive system, it shall be blocked to prevent further processing.
The retention period or deletion periods of customer data depend on the data type. A detailed list of the data categories and types of data processed by us can be found in an electronic list of processing activities in accordance with Article 30 GDPR, which we gladly provide to interested parties upon request.
Data that we need in order to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims shall not be deleted in accordance with Article 17 para. 3 lit. e GDPR.


6. Right to information, correction, deletion and limitation of processing

You reserve the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. Likewise, you also have the right to correction, locking or deletion of your personal data, apart from such data storage as prescribed for business transactions.
For a data lock to be possible at all times, said data must be stored in a lock file for control purposes. You can also request deletion of the data, as long as there is no statutory retention obligation. As far as such an obligation exists, we shall lock your data upon request.


7. Consent

You can make changes or revoke your consent non-retroactively by notifying us.


8. Preparation of personal data

For the purposes of fulfilling the contract, the client or the person concerned is obliged to provide personal data to the extent necessary for the fulfilment of said contract. It is the responsibility of the client to only provide the contractor or the responsible office with the data necessary for the fulfilment of the contract (minimum data principle).


9. Right to complain to the regulator
