Scope of Data Processing

We treat your personal data strictly confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and on the basis of this privacy policy. We process your data only as necessary for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly internet presence or website and for the provision of our content and services. Failure to provide the data may have legal disadvantages, such as the impracticability of a contract. As part of our data processing, we use various third-party providers in the areas of hosting, online marketing, mailing services and customer relationship management (CRM), each of which processes data on our behalf. We have concluded corresponding data processing agreements with these third-party providers, insofar as the third parties are processors, which ensure that an adequate level of data protection is guaranteed (Art. 28 GDPR).

Data Security

Furthermore, we have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed both by us and by external service providers. For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption.  

Processing of Personal Data
