Data is personal when it can be clearly without ambiguity assigned to a specific natural person. The use of our internet pages is normally possible without a declaration of personal data. Different regulations may apply to the use of individual services on our pages, which will be explained separately in this case. Personal data (such as name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) that you provide to us e.g. in the context of a contact request, we process only in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law (EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPRand Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).

On our pages we offer you the possibility to contact us by e-mail and / or via a contact form. In this case, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your contact.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS. However, we point out that Internet-based data transmission (for example, when communicating by email) has security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of data from access by third parties is thus impossible.
