The collection and use of personal data takes place only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.
We treat personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy statement. As a visitor to this website, you have the right, within the framework of the applicable statutory provisions, to free information at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests sent to us as the site operator.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data transmitted to us cannot be read by third parties.
