For the sake of easier reading, no gender-specific distinction is made in our data protection declaration. The terms used apply, in the context of equal treatment, to both genders.

The meaning of the terminology used, for example “personal data” or its “processing” can be taken from Article 4 of the EU-General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The users’ personal data processed in the context of this online offering, includes inventory data (e.g. customers’ names and addresses), contract data (e.g. services used, name of person responsible, payment information), usage data (e.g. Websites of our online offering visited, interest in our products) and content data (e.g. input into the contact form).

“User” includes all categories of persons affected by the data processing. These include, for example, our business partners, customers, interested parties and other visitors to our online offering.

If the relevant purpose no longer exists, respectively after expiry of the appropriate period, your data is routinely blocked, respectively erased, in accordance with the statutory provisions

The security measures employed are continually improved in accordance with technical development.

For this reason, all data transfers from you to our online offering are made at your own risk.
