We are strongly committed to protecting your privacy and your private and personal data. We collect, process, and use your personal data in accordance with the provisions of this Data Protection Statement and the applicable German data protection laws, including without limitation the BDSG and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

With this Privacy Statement, we wish to inform you which of your personal data we collect, process, and use.

Personal data

Personal data is information about your personal or material circumstances. This includes information about your identity such as your name, your e-mail address, or your postal address. Information that cannot be directly linked to your identity (e.g. the number of users of the online offering) is not considered personal data.

You can generally use our online offering without disclosing your identity and without providing any personal data. However, for some of the services on offer we need to collect personal data from you. We collect, store, and use such data exclusively in relation with the use of this site, more specifically for handling your inquiries.

Storage and processing of personal information

We store your information on protected dedicated servers. Technical and organisational measures are taken to protect such servers against loss, destruction, access, modification, or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. Access to your data will be permitted only to a limited number of persons in charge of the technical, commercial, or editorial support of the servers. Notwithstanding regular controls, full protection against all risks cannot be provided.

Our web pages and your entries on our web pages are transmitted over the Internet in encrypted form through HTTPS.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties

We will use your personal information exclusively for the fulfilment of the services requested by you. Insofar as we use external service providers in performing the service requested, such external service providers will also access the data exclusively for the purpose of performing the service. By taking the necessary technical and organisational measures we ensure compliance with privacy policies and we demand the same of our external partners.

Moreover, we will not disclose the data to any third parties, including without limitation for advertising purposes, without your express consent. We will disclose your personal data only if you have given your consent to disclosure of the data or insofar as we are entitled or obligated to do so pursuant to legal provisions and/or administrative or judicial orders. This may include, without being limited to, giving information for purposes of criminal prosecution, in order to avert danger, or in order to enforce intellectual property rights.
