Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our website, this is done on a voluntary basis. WVT uses your personal data exclusively for the purposes of technical administration of the website and for contractual and other communication with you. Data will not be passed on to third parties. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps.

Registration on our website
Orders are generally possible without registration and without setting up a customer account. However, you have the option of registering on our website by providing personal data and creating a customer account. Which personal data is transmitted depends on the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered will only be used and stored for internal processes and for our own purposes. The data is passed on exclusively to parcel services, which also only use the personal data for the processes necessary.
Information and deletion of data
Customers are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the database. The WVT will provide any customer with information about what personal data is stored. Furthermore, WVT corrects or deletes personal data at the request or notice of the person concerned, provided that there are no legal storage requirements to the contrary.
