Extent and purpose of use of the data collected on our website

You shall always have the right to receive information free of charge and to demand blocking or deletion of saved personal data. Please send this request to us in written form
As a basic principle we do not forward your personal data including your address and your email address to any third parties without your explicit and at any time revocable consent. Excluded hereof are only our service partners, who require the transfer of data for order processing (e.g. the forwarding company in charge of the delivery and the financial institution in charge of the handling of payments). Even in these cases the transfer of data is restricted to the required minimum.
As referred to in the Terms we reserve the right to request information about you from other third parties such as credit agencies i.e. SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden, Germany / Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, Gasstraße 18, 22761 Hamburg, Germany / arvato infoscore GmbH, Rheinstraße 99, 76532 Baden-Baden, Germany. We will add this information to the information we have previously processed about you so as to enable us to provide the goods or services to you or improve and enhance your buying experience as well as money laundering and fraud prevention. Where we make such a request we will first inform you of this intention and whether any record of the search will be recorded on a credit file. You have a right to obtain a copy of your credit file. For more information: SCHUFA Holding AG, Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, arvato infoscore GmbH
Furthermore we shall only use telephone and fax numbers given to us in case of important questions concerning your order and/or customer information for our company.

Upon receipt of your objection and revocation respectively we are also not going to use and process the hereof affected data for market research purposes any longer as well as immediately stop any further sending of advertising material.
Indicated data shall basically be saved only as long as required within the contractual agreements and subject to the applicable law. puzzleYOU.com is going to delete the data immediately after this period has passed.
