  1. Creation of a new customer account
    We set-up your master data from the existing customer relationship automatically once you have chosen registration at the web portal.

  2. Processing of orders within the feature „search and order“
    We collect and use the personal data you have submitted during the order process (especially invoice and delivery address, information about the goods ordered e.g. ISBN and title as well as services) in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR only for processing of your orders. For notifications regarding your order status we use your e-mail address.

Our tips – this is what you can do to improve date security!

  • Do never pass on your password.
  • Do change your password on a regular basis and ideally use a combination of letters, special characters and numbers.
  • Please ensure that for web-browsing you are using a safe and SSL-compatible browser.
  • In case you share your computer with other people (e.g. at work) we recommend that you log-out of our website after finishing your session so that no unauthorised person can use the web portal in your name. You can generally log-out by clicking the „Logout“-Button which can be found top right at the menu bar. This does not apply for terminals with small display sizes (e.g. tablets and smartphones) where the log-out button is displayed after clicking on the menu icon. You log-out by clicking on “Logout”.
