You have the right to withdraw a given consent for the future at any time.

Card payment
In the area of card payment (direct debit / girocard / credit cards) we work together with Concardis GmbH (Concardis), Helfmann Park 7, D-65760 Eschborn, represented by its managing directors Mark Freese, Jens Mahlke and Luca Zanotti. In this context, in addition to the purchase amount and date, card data is also transmitted to the above-mentioned company. All payment data and data on any chargebacks that may occur are only stored as long as they are needed for the processing of payments (including the processing of possible chargebacks and collection of receivables) and for the anti-abuse measures. As a rule, the data will be deleted no later than 13 months after it has been collected. In addition, further storage may take place if and as long as this is necessary to comply with a statutory retention period or to prosecute a specific case of abuse. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 UAbs. 1 lit. f) GDPR. You may request information and if necessary, rectification or deletion, as well as the limitation of the processing of your data and / or possibly object to the processing of your data.

According to Article 15 GDPR, you have the right to request information about the processing of your personal data.

Protection of the stored data
We use technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continously improved and adapted according to the state-of-the-art. It cannot be excluded that data that you transfer unecrypted cannot be accessed by third parties during transmission. We point out that regarding the data transmission via the Internet (e. g. at the communication by e-mail) no final secure transmission can be guaranteed. Sensitive data should therefore either not be transferred at all or only via a secure connection (SSL) via the Internet.
