In general, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to use our website. However, in order for us to actually provide our services, we may need your personal data.

In these cases, we collect and store your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide the service or to execute the contract. For this purpose, it may be necessary to pass on your personal data to companies that we use to provide the service or implement the contract. These are for example transport companies or other service providers. If you have registered for our newsletter with your e-mail address, we will use your e-mail address for our own advertising purposes beyond the execution of the contract until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.
