§ 3 Registration in our online shop; processing of your personal data

(1) You can order goods in our online shop as a registered user. As a registered user, you do not have to enter your personal data each time, but you can simply log in to your customer account before or during an order with your e-mail address and the password freely chosen by you during registration. Registration alone does not constitute any obligation to purchase the goods offered by us. For information on the processing of your data, please read our data protection information, which you can access via the following link. When you register, you choose a personal user name and password. You are obliged to keep the password secret and not to disclose it under any circumstances to third parties, i.e. persons outside your company or persons in your company who do not have representative authority.

(2) You can delete your registration at any time under "My account". If your personal details change, you are responsible for updating them yourself. All changes can be made online after registration under "My account".

(2) By clicking the "BUY" button in the last step of the ordering process, you make a binding offer to purchase or book the goods displayed in the order overview.
