The type of personal information and other information we collect and store depends on your interaction with our website: in principle, you can visit our website and obtain information about our offers without revealing any personal information. In order to subsequently provide our services, we must collect certain personal information that you provide to us when registering or placing an order. These details include your personal data (your full name, title, gender, date of birth) and your contact data (email address, postal address, telephone number). For processing your orders, further details ac be required, e.g. the delivery address, the preferred method of payment and, if necessary, your bank or credit card details. Your data will be used exclusively to process your orders and to send you newsletters resp. mailings. Further use of the data will only take place if this is necessary in the context of order fulfillment, customer support or the fulfillment of legal or economic conditions.

Unless you provide us with this data, we are unable to conclude a contract with you. In addition, we use your data if there is a legal obligation (Art. 6 Sec 1 lit c GDPR).

We use your personal data to communicate with you, in order to verify your identity, to provide you with your personal Login area on our website, to handle your inquiries and orders, and to provide you with our services.
If you have given us your separate consent, we will also use your data, in the scope of the given consent, to provide you with, for example, offers and promotions. You can revoke this consent at any time, whereby the revocation makes the further processing for the future inadmissible.
We store your personal and company-related data as long as there is a business relationship with you and, furthermore if there are legally standardized longer retention periods or if we need the data in the context of an official procedure.
5. DATA SECURITY AND FORWARDING
In order to protect your data, we use, among other things, encryption for data transmission (SSL encryption), firewalls, hacker defence programmes and other state-of-the-art security devices. When communicating via e-mail, the security of the data can only be guaranteed by us ac-cording to the latest state of the art technology.
The use of your personal and company-related data will be handled by mWG myWorld Germany GmbH as the contractual partner and as the responsible entitiy for the processing of your data. mWG myWorld Germany GmbH uses mWS myWorld Solutions AG as a service provider for the processing. Your personal data and company-related data can, however, be transferred / delivered to other service providers, as well as to other companies within the myWorld Group, Lyoness Group and Lyconet Group.
To carry out our services, communicate with you and manage our online presence we use the services of certain service providers. We assure you that we carefully select these service providers to ensure legal and secure data processing. In addition, we have obligated the service providers to use your personal data and company-related data only according to our instructions and according to the Data Protection law of Germany and the Data Protection Acts of the European Union. Further use of the data by these service providers is prohibited.
In addition, we will pass on your personal data and company-related data to the myWorld Group, insofar as this is necessary for the administration of your customer account at the myWorld marketplace, for the processing of the purchases made by you and the processing of your service inquiries to us. The myWorld Group companies are also obligated only to use your personal data and company-related data for the sole purpose for which it was given, as provided for in the Data Protection Acts of Germany and the European Union. In particular, the affected services are as follows: contact via electronic messages (e.g. e-mail, SMS or push notifications), by fax, by telephone or by letter for information about products and promotions of the myWorld marketplace, identification of promotions which are of interest to you, conducting satisfaction surveys, operating hotlines, and processing transactions. We will transmit your necessary personal data to the marketplace sellers if and as far as it is necessary to be able to provide a concrete service for you or if you give us your explicit consent. The sellers are obliged only to use your personal data and company-related data for the sole purpose for which it was given, as provided for in the Data Protection Acts of Germany and the European Union.
myWorld Group is an international corporation. Our business activities, management structure and our technical infrastructure transcend national borders. We can therefore send your personal data and company-related data to other myWorld companies abroad, as far as this is necessary to process your order. A transfer of your personal or company-related data to the Member States of the European Economic Area, to Switzerland and to other countries with adequate level of data protection requires no further consent. If, however, your personal and company-related data is transferred to any country other than those mentioned above, we will inform you and of course comply with the applicable data protection regulations, provide you with appropriate guarantees and ensure the enforcement of your rights and remedies.
We will not pass on your personal data and company data to any persons other than the above-mentioned marketplace sellers, service providers and myWorld companies, unless you have given us your consent or if there is a legal obligation to do so.
