After this period has expired, we will keep the contractual relationship information required under commercial and tax law for the legally specified periods in a locked  form. The legal basis for this ongoing storage is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter c) GDPR. For this period (usually six or ten years after the end of the year in which the contract was concluded), the data will be processed again solely in the event of a review by the tax authorities.

The following data processing is also required to process the respective purchase contract:

We pass on information about your delivery address to a logistics company commissioned by us for the purpose of processing the purchase contract. If you agree, we will send your e-mail address and, if applicable, your telephone number to the logistics company we have commissioned to ensure that the goods are delivered in accordance with your wishes (needs would be a better word). You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The data is transmitted solely for this purpose.

3.2.2. Identity, credit rating  and transfer to credit agencies

If necessary, we check your identity using information from service providers. The legal basis for this is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b) and Letter f) GDPR. The authorization to do so results from the protection of your identity and to avoid  fraud attempts at our expense. The conditions and the result of our request will be saved in your customer account for the duration of the contractual relationship.

In the event of a delay in payment, we will transmit the necessary data to a company commissioned with asserting the claim if all  other legal requirements are met. The legal basis for this is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f) GDPR. The assertion of a contractual claim is to be regarded as a valid interest within the meaning of this provision. If the other legal requirements are met, we also transmit information about the delay in payment or potential failure to  pay  to credit agencies cooperating with us.

The legitimate interest required here results from our interest and that of third parties in reducing contractual risks for future contracts.
