The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat all of your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation and this Data Privacy Statement.
The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data.

These data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
However, we would like to point out that security gaps may occur during online data transmission (e.g. when communicating via email). Therefore, data cannot be completely protected against third-party access.

The term “controller” refers to the natural person or legal entity that, alone or jointly with others, determines the purpose and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Withdrawing your consent to data processing
Many data processing procedures are not possible without your explicit consent. You may withdraw your previously granted consent at any time. To do so, please send us an e-mail stating your intention. This withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of any data processing performed prior to the withdrawal.
Right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority
In the event of data protection violations, the affected person has the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. The relevant supervisory authority for issues relating to data protection legislation is the Landesdatenschutzbeauftragter (state data protection commissioner) of the federal state in which our company has its registered seat.

You have the right to receive the data we process automatically, either on the basis of the consent you gave or in order to perform a contract, in a commonly used and machine-readable format or have said data transmitted to a third party. If you demand the direct transfer of your data to another controller, we can only oblige where technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
This site uses SSL and/or TLS encryption to increase security and protect the transmissions of confidential content, such as data transmitted as part of orders or enquiries sent to us, the website operator.

Enabled SSL and/or TLS encryption prevents third parties from accessing the data you transmit to us.

The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited receipt of advertising materials, e.g. by means of spam e-mails.
