The IP address, date and time currently used by your terminal, the browser type and the operating system of your terminal and the pages accessed are recorded. This data can be collected for the purpose of data security and for the optimization of our product range as well as the improvement of our online services. Any other analysis of the data, with the exception of statistical purposes and then in anonymous form, will only be carried out in accordance with this privacy policy. In addition, personal information will only be stored if you provide it yourself, e.g. in the context of a registration, a survey, a competition, an online application or to execute a contract.

The personal information that you provide to us through the Website or by e-mail (eg your name and address or e-mail address) will only be used for correspondence with you and for the purpose for which you provided us with the data provided. Your data will only be passed on to individual companies or other service providers who assist us in the provision of services in individual processing steps within the scope of order data processing. In addition, of course, the information will not be disclosed unless legal requirements permit or require it. Insofar as we use service providers within the framework of order data processing for the execution and processing of processing processes, the contractual relationships are governed by the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act. We hire other companies and individuals to perform tasks for us. Examples are u. a. Delivery of ordered goods, sending of letters or e-mails, advertising measures, processing of payments as well as customer service. These service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their duties. However, you may not use them for any other purpose. In addition, they are obliged to treat the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or the applicable statutory and contractual data protection regulations.

Should we transfer personal data to service providers based in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will ensure that this is always done in accordance with this privacy policy and German data protection laws and that relevant contracts or agreements are in place to ensure an adequate level of protection.

Personal information that has been communicated to us through our website will only be stored until the purpose for which it was entrusted to us is fulfilled. Insofar as commercial and tax retention periods must be observed, the storage period for specific data may be up to 10 years. Divergent retention periods may also arise due to a predominant legitimate interest of METRO (for example to ensure data security, to prevent abuse or to prosecute). Data that we have to save due to statutory, statutory or contractual retention requirements will be blocked.

We may occasionally refer to the websites of third parties (link). Although we choose these third parties carefully, we can not guarantee and assume liability for the correctness or completeness of the content and the data security of third party websites.
