  • you accessed the third-party website via a link from our website, or
  • You came to our site from a third-party website.

Privacy Principles

Our processes are based on data protection principles such as transparency, necessity and data security. We want to create transparency so that you can gain insight into which data we process and for what purpose. Only the data required for the respective service is used to ensure data economy. For this reason, we also indicate whether we process data from you by necessity or on a voluntary basis.

Purpose of data processing

We only use your personal data for the intended purpose. Personal data are e.g. your name, address, telephone number or your e-mail address, your picture, your assigned IP address as well as the content of your e-mail or an entry by you on this website.

The purpose of data processing can be

  • Respond to your inquiries and requests;
  • process the orders you place;
  • improve our services and adapt them to your needs.

We endeavor to make the purpose of data processing transparent for you with each individual service. We delete data if we no longer need them for the purposes mentioned. However, storage obligations, such as statutory storage regulations, must be observed.

Cross-border data transfer

As part of the products and services offered through this website, information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). This may be the case, for example, because one of our servers or one of our service providers is hosted or operates in a country outside the EEA. These countries may have data protection laws that are not comparable to those of the EEA. If your information is sent outside the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure your privacy remains protected.

Data security

We have taken technical and organizational precautions to protect your personal data from unauthorized access and misuse. We will adapt the measures taken in this regard to the latest available technology as required.

Precautions against identity theft

Identity theft, i.e. the misuse of a person’s personal data (the “identity”) by an unauthorized person, is much easier on the Internet than off the Internet. We strive to prevent this abuse.
