In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will usually have to provide further personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.

If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you of the consequences of this in the description of the offer.

§ 6 Contact via contact form or e-mail
For questions of any kind, we offer you the possibility of contacting us via the e-mail addresses provided. In doing so, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we know who the enquiry is from and so that we can answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

When you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide (your e-mail address, your message and, if applicable, further information) will be stored by us in order to answer your enquiry. We delete the data accruing in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are statutory retention obligations. In this case, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO is the legal basis.

§ 7 Use of our online shop
Our online shop is aimed exclusively at specialist tradesmen in the fields of metal, wood and glass construction. Private end consumers and enquiries from tradesmen from other trades can purchase our products in retail stores or via specialist trades. To ensure that only tradesmen order from us, prior customer registration is required. You can register for the online shop via our website. To do so, you must provide us with certain data (company name, address, contact details, etc.). Necessary mandatory information is marked separately, other information is voluntary. After successful verification, a customer account will be created for you and you will receive your access data by e-mail. The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO. The data for your customer account will be stored until revoked.

We process the data you provide as part of the order for the purpose of processing your order. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO.

Depending on the payment option selected by you as part of the order, we pass on inventory data (e.g. name and address), bank data (e.g. IBAN or credit card number, passwords, TANs and checksums) as well as contract data and recipient-related details to the credit institution commissioned with processing the payment and, if applicable, the payment service provider commissioned by us. In addition, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery. This is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract and is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO.

We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. However, we restrict processing after two years, i.e. your data is only used to comply with legal obligations. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO.

WhatsApp automatically receives access to the address book of the mobile phone we use. The phone numbers stored in it are automatically transferred to WhatsApp and from there to other Facebook Group companies. WhatsApp also takes measurements and analyses in order to improve the WhatsApp services. For the use of WhatsApp, we use a mobile phone in which only the contacts of users who have contacted us via WhatsApp are stored. This excludes the transmission of data from third parties who are not registered with WhatsApp.
