Data collection for contract execution and for opening an account

We collect personal information that identifies you when you provide it as part of your order, either from contacting us (e.g. through a contact form or e-mail) or by voluntarily submitting information when opening a customer account with us. We only collect information from the forms we receive from you. We use the information from them for contract execution and to handle your inquiries. After completion of the contract or cancellation of your account, we no longer need your data. It is deleted after use and after the commercial storage periods have finished.
