You can access and retrieve information from our Web sites without having to enter personal data. We collect personal data only with your knowledge and prior approval. When we collect data, it is voluntary for registration, order and survey purposes using forms or via e-mail.
To process your order, we ask for your name, billing address, delivery address, e-mail address and your payment information, such as credit card data. This allows us to process your order and protects you from fraudulent use of your credit card. In case of problems processing your order, we can contact you using this information. 
In your order record, we store your messages addressed to us, such as e-mail and fax messages, and we also store our messages to you. This information is used to constantly analyze and improve our customer service and for protection against fraud. In due time, this information will be blocked or deleted, as permitted by law.

This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
