Collection of data
Personal data is collected when you initiate an order process; In doing so, information about your person and the data required for processing are collected. Of this data, only the information that is required for the contractual relationship is provided as mandatory information.

Processing and use of data
toGo Filter uses the collected data for four basic purposes, although not all data is actually used for all purposes:

  1. The data for your account on your person and address (inventory data) are used to establish and process the user relationship (order).
  2. We use the data on your use of the individual offers (usage data) for the technical processing of the usage service (order). It can happen that usage data from different services are merged for billing purposes.
  3. Once the contract has been processed in full and the purchase price has been paid in full, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after the retention periods under tax and commercial law have expired, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data.

Transfer of data to third parties
toGo Filter only transmits your personal data to third parties if:

  1. The transmission is necessary for the execution or billing of an order, in particular if a third party needs this data to process the contractual relationship (e.g. credit card company or shipping service provider; the data is only transmitted to the third party to the extent that it is necessary for the service).
  2. If there is a legitimate interest on our part, personal data will be passed on to third parties in individual cases within the legally permissible limits, who may be authorized to check the validity of the data entered (such as credit card information, account details, etc.) and credit assessment. In doing so, data is only forwarded to the places required for processing. 
  3. In accordance with the applicable laws, government agencies may also request information or data from us in order to fulfill their statutory tasks, e.g. for the purpose of criminal prosecution.
