In the context of a concluded freight or-der, you may be contractually or legally obliged to provide personal data, in particular insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of your own contractual or legal obliga-tions. In this respect, you may be liable for fines or damages. Insofar as the provision of your data is necessary for the fulfilment of our obligations, there is an obligation on your part.

3. Data deletion and storage period

We delete your personal data as soon as the legal basis for its processing ceases to apply.

III. Data processing for provision of the website

In order for us to be able to show you the website, it is necessary to process certain information. This already takes place when you call up our website. In addition, we offer various functionalities on our website that make further data processing neces-sary.

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used by the user
  • URL, the last page previously accessed by the user
