1. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

In order to provide our services, we collect personally identifiable information as voluntarily submitted to us by our clients and visitors. This includes names, preferred postal addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers. In all cases, the information you submit is used to fulfil your specific request such as making a purchase from our online store. By completing a purchase online, you consent to the personal data you provide being processed as required to fulfil your purchase. Should you choose to subscribe to our mailing list, only your name and email address will be used in that communication. You can redefine or opt-out of receiving our newsletters at any time by following the designated ‘unsubscribe’ link in the footer.

In certain cases, your data will be transmitted to Architonic AG via the Virtual Showroom for processing enquiries. In turn, Architonic AG will forward this data to the relevant retailer if this is necessary for processing the request in question. Only the data which is necessary to process the purpose in question will be forwarded.
