We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

Our website includes tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law.

For example, US companies are obliged to release personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this.

We have no influence on these processing activities.
