This includes all information that allows conclusions to be drawn about an identified or identifiable person, such as their name, address or contact data (e.g. telephone number, postal and e-mail address). IP addresses are also personal data in this sense.

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, unless this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Also the transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information only takes place within the scope of the legal obligations to provide information or if we are obligated by a court decision to provide information.

In our company we attach great importance to data protection. All our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obliged by us to secrecy and to comply with data protection regulations.
