We process the following information, amongst other data, in order to process the order that we place with you as a supplier:
company name, personal form of address, title, first name, surname, postal and e-mail address, telephone number (landline and/or mobile), any fax number (if available & as wished) and bank account data.
All information is furthermore collected that is needed and legally required in order to maintain a proper supplier relationship.
The above data have been provided to us by yourself.
We collect your personal data in order to be able to identify you as a supplier, to meet our contractual obligations towards you, to be able to satisfy our statutory obligations, to correspond with you, to process invoices and to assert any claims that we may have towards you.
The personal data are processed for the abovenamed purposes in order to process our order, and in order to meet obligations ensuing from the respective underlying order.
The legal basis for this is formed by Art. 6§1(b) GDPR, whilst the performance of contractual obligations is covered by Art. 6§1(f) GDPR as part of the weighing up of interests, and by Art. 6§1(c) on the basis of statutory stipulations
None of your personal data are passed on to third parties as a matter of principle. Exceptions to this only apply insofar as this is necessary to process the order placed with you. This includes in particular forwarding to service-providers commissioned by ourselves (known as “processors“) or other third parties whose activities are required for its implementation (e.g. banks).
Any third parties to whom the data are forwarded may only use them for the abovenamed purposes.
The personal data that are collected are stored until expiry of the statutory storage period for traders (six years, or ten years after the end of the calendar year in which the contractual relationship was ended), after which they are erased. This exceptionally does not apply if we are obliged to store them for longer due to storage periods that are stipulated by fiscal or commercial law (under the German Commercial Code [HGB], Criminal Code [StGB] or Fiscal Code [AO]), or if you have consented to their being stored for longer.
You have the following rights under Art. 15 to 22 GDPR, assuming the statutory requirements are met: the right to information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing and data portability.
Art. 21 GDPR furthermore provides you with a right to object to processing based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
Art. 77 GDPR entitles you to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority should you consider that your personal data have not been processed lawfully.
