Data protection

For MUSTANG, protecting personal information which customers send to MUSTANG while using the online store is very important. Therefore, when collecting, processing, and using this data, the MUSTANG group adheres strictly to the legal stipulations set out in the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and the German Broadcast Media Act (Telemediengesetz). For the purposes of performing credit checks and assessments, the customer's address and credit rating information may be forwarded to other firms, distribution companies and service companies in the group, as well as to other credit institutions. The MUSTANG group will collect and process address and order information for its own marketing purposes with the customer's approval. The customer will be asked about this during the ordering process. The interests of the customer which should be protected will be taken into account during the data handling process in accordance with legal stipulations. Data will be saved and – if necessary in the context of handling an order – forwarded to affiliated companies where appropriate.
