The protection of information relating to you, such as your name, your telephone number and your e-mail or IP address (so-called “personal data”) is important to us. Therefore, we operate this website and services offered by us on it in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

 

You will find below an explanation of how we handle your personal data in this context.

 

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

 

We use SSL or TLS encryption for this website for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognize a corresponding encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

The legal basis for such data transfer to the USA is basically your consent (Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO), which you have given us via the corresponding cookie banner, or a respective contract performance (Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO).
