In conjunction with contact requests, we store your personal data for as long as is necessary to process your request, including an appropriate retention period for follow-up questions.

Personal data which is collected during the registration or order process is stored for as long as it takes to perform the contract (where applicable including the provision of a customer account), and/or to take steps at your request prior to entering into the contract, and/or to meet warranty, guarantee or similar obligations, and/or to comply with statutory archiving requirements.

The legal bases for processing the personal data collected in connection with registrations or orders are Article 6 (1) b) and Article 6 (1) c) of the General Data Protection Regulation.
