Data protection


Below we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website.

The term "personal data" means all data that is personally available to you. These include, for example, name, address, e-mail addresses, user behavior. For other terms, in particular the terms "processing" and "consent", we refer to the definitions of the legal protection of data.

In principle, we process personal data only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and the content and services we offer. The processing of personal data takes place regularly only if you have given us consent or processing is permitted by law.

Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted. In addition, storage may be provided if required by national or European regulations to which we are subject. A blocking or deletion of the data takes place in this case then, if the storage period prescribed in the respective regulations has expired. The latter does not apply if further storage of the data is required for a contract or fulfillment of the contract.

As far as we rely on commissioned service providers for individual functions of our website or would like to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail below about the respective processes.
