As a rule, it is possible to use our website without specifying personal data. Personal data refer to specific details about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person (for example, name, address or e-mail addresses). If personal data are collected, this always takes place on a voluntary basis. These details will not be disclosed to third parties without express consent. As these details are subject to specific protection, they shall only be collected by us to the technically necessary extent.

Your data will only also be used for further purposes, which are precisely specified in the consent, e.g. for information about offers by newsletter etc., if you have previously granted your consent separately. Without your consent or a corresponding official order, your personal data will not be provided by us, or persons authorised by us, to third parties.

We point out that data transfer in the Internet (e.g. for communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. Gap-free protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.
