2. Data collection and use for processing the contract and for opening a customer account

We collect personal data that you voluntarily submit to us when you place an order or when you contact (e.g. via customer care form or e-mail).

We disclose your data to the shipping company in the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b) GDPR.

In this respect, the privacy notice of the relevant payment service provider applies.
