The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) EU-DSGVO. This data is deleted after the session has ended in accordance with legal regulations. In addition, personal data is only stored if you provide it to us voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, an order and the associated order processing, a survey, a competition or an online application on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) EU-DSGVO. You will be informed about the purpose of the data collection in the respective entry and contact forms. You have the option of deleting your registration data in your customer account or via our customer service at any time.

For the purpose of creating photo products, your image data will automatically be stored for 30 days after uploading in the online gallery which is only accessible to you. In addition, CEWE provides you with an album memory online which you can optionally use to store the image data for a longer period of time. You have the option of deleting your image data in the online gallery and the album memory at any time or making it accessible to third parties at your request.

After your order has been completed and delivered, the image data will be kept in production for up to 6 weeks in order to process any complaints or repeat orders. After this period, the data will be irretrievably deleted.
