The password-protected My Lidl Account allows you to view, access, manage and edit your data from various online services of the group of companies, e.g. the Lidl online shop, the Lidl Plus App, etc. (hereinafter each a "target service"), in a central storage location (here-inafter “the Portal”). Furthermore it offers you a simple one-time registration system called Single Sign-On service (hereinafter “SSO") (together “My Lidl Account” or “the Service”).
After registering once in a target service, SSO enables you to use further target services with the same username and password, provided that SSO is implemented in the re-spective target service.
For the use of My Lidl Account registration with a target service connected to SSO is re-quired, whereby the user must create a password for the My Lidl Account. This is used together with your e-mail address or mobile phone number to access your My Lidl Ac-count. The registration process is completed when the telephone number provided by the user has been validated and registration has been finally confirmed by the operator.
The details provided by the user as part of the registration process must be correct. De-tails from third parties cannot be supplied. Should details change later, the user must adjust these without delay in the Portal.
Depending on the target service, either your e-mail address or your mobile phone num-ber must be verified during the registration process. For this purpose, we will send you an e-mail or SMS with a confirmation code. Without verification of the e-mail address or mo-bile phone number, the registration process cannot be continued.
You make a binding offer to register to use My Lidl Account by clicking the "Sign up" but-ton after going through the registration process. Before selecting this button, you can cancel the registration at any time or change the information provided by deleting, add-ing or correcting the entries made in the various fields or closing the target service. After completing the registration process, you can change the information provided in your personal Portal at any time.
Upon receipt of your offer to conclude the contract, we will send a confirmation of re-ceipt of the offer ("order confirmation") to the e-mail address you provided during regis-tration. This order confirmation also represents our acceptance of the offer to conclude a contract of use ("conclusion of contract"). You can use the service as soon as you have re-ceived the order confirmation.
After completing the registration, you will automatically be assigned a customer number.
The access data is meant exclusively for use by the relevant authorised user and must be protected with appropriate measures from unauthorised access by third parties. If the user notices unauthorised use of the Service, he must report this to the Lidl Stiftung without delay. The user is liable for consequences due to third party use if he is responsi-ble for it or for failing to stop it.
Use of My Lidl Account on the devices with Android operating system is only possible if that the device uses Google Chrome browser.
Subject of the Service of My Lidl Account is the provision of a unified password protected SSO Service for different target services within the group of companies. This essentially means that after a one-time registration and authentication, the My Lidl Account created can be used to log in to all target services integrated with My Lidl Account without requir-ing a separate registration or again provision of detailed user data.
For a convenient login, you also have the option to activate the "Stay logged in" function. After activating the function, a permanent cookie (6 months) is set in the browser of your device, which ensures that My Lidl Account recognizes you the next time you visit. This cookie can also be deleted at any time via the settings in the browser.
SSO gives you a cross-portal identity that is recognized and verified by connected target services and that you can manage via the Portal. The Portal l allows you to view, access, manage, and correct your information from various target services in one central location. The Portal stores your customer master data and information as well as those customer master data and information that you have provided when using other target services. In this way, all your customer master data, login data, information about your circumstances and interests from the "About Me" section, and information about the benefits granted as part of the "Lidl Liddle Club" program, if voluntarily provided, as well as information about deposited payment methods and the history of purchases and orders can be viewed by you in a central location in the Portal. If necessary, your data will be transmitted to the respective target service when specific offers are used in order to enable the respective transaction to be carried out (see section 7 below).
The use of My Lidl Account is free. However, the use of concrete target services could involve costs, which are transparently displayed with the relevant offer in accordance with legal requirements. The same applies for possibly required third party services, such as the internet connection.

4.3 Cancellation form
As part of the individual target services, their operator carries the sole responsibility for the provision of the services. The Lidl Stiftung is not liable for possible claims resulting from this. The same applies to other contributions of independent third parties such as for example an internet provider.
The Lidl Stiftung shall only be liable for compensation claims of the user arising from loss of life, bodily injury or damage to health or from the breach of essential contractual obli-gations (cardinal obligations) as well as for other damages resulting from an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the Lidl Stiftung its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Material contractual obligations are those whose fulfilment is necessary to achieve the objective of the contract. In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the Lidl Stiftung shall only be liable for the foreseeable damage typical of the contract if this was caused by simple negligence, unless the user's claims for damages are based on loss of life, bodily injury or damage to health. Any liability of the Lidl Stiftung with respect to any guarantees and for claims raised in relation to our liability for defective products shall remain unaffected.
In particular, we reserve the right to correct or delete your My Lidl Account or individual entries therein in the event of incorrect information.
The processing of your personal data takes place while preserving your legal data protec-tion rights. To implement a service it is necessary that the details provided by you are forwarded to the provider of the relevant target service you want to use to permit user authentication and provision of the Service as detailed in the target service (e.g. shipping and payment for products ordered).
