The specific data we process in this case is set out in Article 1(2).

3.4. Legitimate interest
We also process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest, so that we can improve and adapt the services provided, find out whether an order has been processed to your satisfaction and promote the products and services offered more effectively. This is, in particular, the data referred to in Article 1(4) and (5).
On the basis of a legitimate interest consisting of direct marketing, we may also send you commercial communications regarding products similar to those you have purchased from us. However, this is only on condition that you do not object to such processing.

5. For how long do we process personal data and how is it secured?
5.1. Duration of processing
We primarily process your personal data for the duration of our contractual relationship, i.e. the duration of a Purchase Agreement or a registered Re4Earth Member Agreement. We are obliged to process the personal data that is necessary for the performance of all our obligations, whether these are obligations arising from the Agreement concluded between us or from generally binding legal regulations, for the period specified by the legal regulations or in accordance with them. For example, in the case of accounting documents issued by us, we as a controller are obliged to keep information about you for at least ten years from the date of issue.
We primarily process personal data for the duration of the contractual relationship, i.e. the duration of a Purchase Agreement or a registered Re4Earth Member Agreement.

For example, in the case of accounting documents issued by us, we are obliged to keep information about you for at least ten years.
As part of the fulfilment of your requests and the provision of quality customer service, we process your personal data as of the conclusion of our contractual relationship, including one year from the end of the warranty period of goods purchased for the purpose of the resolution of potential disputes.
If you give us consent to the sending of commercial communications, this consent is valid until revoked. If you give us your consent to notify you of the availability of goods you are monitoring, this consent is valid until the time of sending the information about availability, or until it is revoked. The consent given by sending your review of goods is valid until revoked. If you participate in a competition organised by us, we process your personal data for a period of one year.
If you communicate with us through our customer service, we store personal data from the communication for a period of two years.In other cases, the duration of the processing of your personal data ensues from the purpose of processing or is determined by binding legal regulations in the field of personal data protection. Your personal data is automatically erased after the set processing periods expire.
The personal data we have collected about you and which we process is transmitted to us in an already encrypted form, using the SSL (secure socket layer) encryption system for this transmission. This system ensures that your personal data is safe when your browser communicates with our server. We secure our website and other systems with which we work with appropriate technical and organisational measures against the loss and destruction of your personal data, against access of unauthorised persons to your personal data and against the modification or dissemination of your data.
We are continuously improving this security, and we also require our processors to prove the compliance of the systems they use with the GDPR.
If you register, access to your customer account is possible only after entering the password you have chosen. We do not have access to your password because we store it in an encrypted form that is not decryptable, even for us.
Among other things, we would like to appeal to you that it is essential that you do not disclose your login details to third parties. We recommend that you log out when you are finished with your customer account, especially if you share the device with other users. We do not take responsibility for any misuse of your password unless we cause such a situation directly.
