Thank you for your interest in maxon. Protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find information about how we handle your data.
1. Activities related to our website
We may collect some personal data about you when you choose to visit our website. The relevant activities are listed below:
Access data and hosting
When you visit our website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request. This access data is analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves our legitimate interests in presenting our offer, provided these do not interfere with your rights.
Data collection and use for opening a customer account and for processing the contract
We collect personal data that you voluntarily submit to us when you open a customer account with us on our website, when you place an order and when you contact us (e.g. via contact form or by email). Mandatory fields are marked as such because we absolutely need this data to open your customer account, to perform the contract or to process your contact request, and you would otherwise not be able to create your customer account and/or complete your order or send the contact request. It is evident in each input form what data is collected. We use the data that you disclose to us to perform the contract and process your enquiries. Upon completion of the contract or deletion of your customer account, any further processing of your data will be restricted, unless you expressly consent to the further use of your data or we reserve the right to further use your personal data in the scope and manner permitted by law, of which we inform you in this notice. Your customer account can be deleted at any time. For this purpose you can send a message to the privacy contact option specified in the imprint.
For the purpose of contract performance, we disclose your data to the shipping company in the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods. Depending on the payment service provider you have selected during the ordering process, we disclose the payment details collected for order processing purposes to the bank commissioned to handle the payment and, as the case may be, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. Some of this data is collected by the selected payment service providers themselves if you open an account with them. In such a case, during the ordering process, you must register with your payment service provider using your access data. In this respect, the privacy notice of the relevant payment service provider applies.
