    a) Customers/Suppliers:

We process your personal data (title, first name, last name, e-mail address, company name, country, address, phone number, banking details, VAT number, commercial register number) as far as necessary throughout the entire life of our business relations (from initial business contact to the processing of orders until the expiration of a contract) and beyond according to the legal obligations to retain data and to keep records as required, among others, by the Commercial Code (UGB) or by the Federal Fiscal Code (BAO); and until the termination of any lawsuit, running warranty periods, product liability; and/or until the termination of your and our legitimate interests.
