These data are evaluated solely to improve our offering and to ensure that this website runs as smoothly as possible. The data cannot be traced back to you personally. 
In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f of the GDPR, this enables us to safeguard our justified interest in ensuring that our content is displayed properly – an interest which prevails when the interests of all parties are taken into account.

3. Data collection, storage and use for the processing of contracts
We collect personal data if you provide them voluntarily when contacting us or placing an order.

The relevant entry forms indicate what data are collected. We use the data that you provide for processing contracts and your queries in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b of the GDPR. Once we have finished processing the contract, access to your data for further processing will be restricted and your data will be deleted as soon as the retention periods required under fiscal and other laws expire, unless you have explicitly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to make further use of your data in a manner which is permitted by law as set out in this data protection statement.
