We are particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits set by the legal provisions. The collection of this personal data is made on a voluntary basis, if this is possible for us. Also, we will transmit data to third parties only with your express consent. In the case of particularly confidential data, such as with payment transactions or with regard to your requests to us, we ensure high security by using SSL encryption. However, we do not want to miss the opportunity here to point out the general dangers of internet usage which we do not have any influence on. Particularly in e-mail traffic your data is not safe without employing any further precautions and may under certain circumstances be recorded by third parties.

In order to be able to block the data at any time, the data is retained for control purposes in a lock file.

CONTENTS AND SERVICES OF THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS
The range of services on our website may also include contents and services offered by other suppliers that complement our range of services. Examples for such offers are maps from Google Maps, YouTube videos or graphic representations of third parties. Calling these services from third parties requires the regular transmission of your IP address. As a result it is possible for suppliers to see your user IP address and also to store it. We make every effort to only include such third-party suppliers that use IP addresses solely for delivering the contents. However, we have no influence on which third-party supplier may store your IP address. This storage may serve statistical purposes, for example. Should we become aware of storage operations by third-party suppliers, we will immediately inform our users thereon. In this context, please also note the special data protection declarations concerning individual third-party suppliers and service providers whose services we use on our website. You also find them in this data protection declaration.
We collect personal data in compliance with data avoidance and data minimisation only to the extent and as long as it is necessary for using our website or it is required by law. We take the protection of your personal data serious and will adhere strictly to the respective legal provisions and to this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of data collection ceases to apply or if the end of the legal storage period is reached, the data collected will be blocked or deleted. Our website may be used on a regular basis without the transfer of personal data. If we collect personal data – such as your name, your address or your e-mail-address –, this data collection is carried out on a voluntary basis. This data will not be made known to third parties without your explicit consent. Please note that data on the internet is, in general, not always transmitted securely. Particularly in e-mail traffic the protection during data exchange cannot be guaranteed.
