Data protection declaration
Your privacy is important to us. We want you to feel safe with us. For this reason, we and our Data Protection Officer ensure compliance with the data protection regulations, in particular with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG new) which are applicable from 25 May 2018. In the following, we would like to advise you of the purposes for which your data is collected and used and of how you can exercise your rights. You can access and print out the data protection declaration at any time from the "Data protection" tab at the bottom of each page of our online shop.

You can rest assured: We process your data in the central Customer Data Administration department of the German BAUHAUS companies (www.bauhaus.info/gesellschaften, page only available in German) purely for the purpose of answering your enquiries, fulfilling and processing contracts (including payment processing), for our own advertising purposes and for fulfilling our legal obligations. Data is processed on the basis of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).
The data that you enter in the form entitled "Your personal data" is used by us to answer your enquiries, to carry out pre-contractual measures and, should contracts be entered into, to fulfil these contracts.
The legal basis for data processing is GDPR Art. 6(1) point b.
The participant's personal data will be used exclusively for implementing the competition contract, i.e. for determining the winners and delivering the prizes within the EU (legal basis: GDPR Art. 6(1) point b) and will then be deleted after 3 months. Any additional use of the data for advertising purposes will take place only if the participant gives consent. The personal data provided on the participation card is required for participation and for running the competition.
Within the scope of the legal powers, your personal data will be disclosed to the following companies within the EU:

If a data storage period stipulated by the tax authority (for tax invoices and documents) applies to certain data that is used for processing sales contracts, the storage period is 6 or 10 years. During this period, processing of the data is restricted. The obligatory storage period begins at the end of the calendar year in which the offer was submitted or the contract was fulfilled.
