Personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the email address, name or telephone number.

We will not pass on this data without your express consent. We expressly point out that data transmission on the Internet (such as e-mail communication) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The voluntarily provided data is used exclusively for the purpose for which it was provided.

This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. We endeavour to use only such content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes.
