The legal basis for this is Article 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, i.e. You provide us with the data on the basis of the contractual relationship between you and us. As far as we do not use your contact data for commercial purposes (see 3.3), we save the data collected for the processing of the contract up to the expiry of the legal or possible contractual warranty and warranty rights.
