We can use contract processors to process your personal data, but we will generally not pass the personal data on to third parties.
The data will only be passed on to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery to fulfill the contract, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods ordered.

The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The processing thus serves to avoid misuse of this website and is ultimately carried out anonymously, which means that there are no overriding interests on your part to prevent processing (Art. 6 I S. 1 f GDPR).
