What personal data we collect and why we collect it
General processing of customer data
In connection with the business relationship with our customers (i.e. direct customers or recipients of goods that we supply on behalf of third parties, hereinafter referred to as “customers”), we process their address, identification and contract content data as well as sales figures. If the customers are natural persons, this is personal data. This includes data such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax number, date of birth, VAT ID, GLN. The processing is carried out for the purposes of uniquely identifying the customer and initiating, implementing, managing and processing contracts, assessing creditworthiness and collateral, preparing invoices/credit notes, managing and enforcing claims, processing and documenting and providing evidence of agreements and conditions, communicating and sending product information, complying with legal regulations, data security and in the interests of comprehensive customer support. For communication purposes, we also process the names and contact details of the customer’s contact persons. In some cases, we use processors for processing. The legal bases are Art. 6 para. 1b), c) and f) GDPR.
