This Online Offer is not meant for children under 16 years of age.
We involve external service providers with tasks such as programming, data hosting and hotline services. We have chosen those service providers carefully and monitor them on a regular basis, especially regarding their diligent handling of and protection of the data that they store. All service providers are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply to the statutory provisions. Service providers may also be other Bosch group companies.

Content Delivery Network
In order to optimize the loading times of our online offer, we use Content Delivery Network (CDN) Services. The CDN helps to provide the content of our online offer — especially large media files such as graphics, text, or scripts — more quickly with the help of a network of geographically distributed servers, thereby reducing loading times. The use of the CDN services is based on our overriding legitimate interest within the meaning of article 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR in the efficient provision of our online offer. In context of this processing, personal data is transmitted to the USA. The transmission is based on European Standard Contractual Clauses in which the CDN provider guarantees to comply with the European data protection law for its provided services.
Duration of storage, retention periods
Principally, we store your data for as long as it is necessary to render our Online Offers and connected services or for as long as we have a legitimate interest in storing the data (e.g. we might still have a legitimate interest in postal mail marketing after fulfillment of our contractual obligations). In all other cases we delete your personal data with the exception of data we are obliged to store for the fulfillment of legal obligations (e.g. due to retention periods under the tax and commercial codes we are obliged to have documents such as contracts and invoices available for a certain period of time).
Backups will be deleted after a maximum of 30 days.
Our employees and the companies providing services on our behalf, are obliged to confidentiality and to compliance with the applicable data protection laws.
We take all necessary technical and organizational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security and to protect your data that are administrated by us especially from the risks of unintended or unlawful destruction, manipulation, loss, change or unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized access.
