Collection of general information

With each use of the mobile application, information is automatically collected by us resp. the App Service Provider. This information is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

Integration of third-party services and content

Our offer sometimes includes contents, services and performances of other providers. The transmission of the IP address is necessary, so that these data can be called up and displayed in the user’s browser. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") thus perceive the IP address of the respective user. Even if we endeavor to use only third party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored by third party providers. In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among others. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users accordingly.

Data Economy

In accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data economy, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary or prescribed by law (statutory storage period). If the purpose of the information collected is no longer applicable, for example after ordering in the online shop, we will delete your data.
