Protection of privacy

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal information very seriously. We treat your personal information confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy. The use of this website is generally possible without stating personal information. Should personal information (e.g. name, address or email addresses) be required on our website, the giving of this information occurs, wherever possible, voluntarily. The information will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent. We would like to point out that information transfer on the internet (e.g. email communication) can be susceptible to security gaps.  A complete protection of the information against access from third parties is not possible.

Objection to advertising emails
We herewith object to the use of the contact details that were published in the “legal notice” section as part of the obligation to comply with the general information requirements for sending advertisements and information materials that were not requested explicitly.  The operators of this website reserve the right to take legal action in case that unsolicited advertising is received; for example through spam emails.
