Data Privacy Statement



The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal information. The collection of any personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address) is regarded, as far as possible, as being strictly voluntary. This information will not be passed on to a third party without express consent.


We point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) does contain security gaps. Complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties is not possible.


The use of published contact information by third parties for sending unsolicited advertisements and information materials is, within the framework of the legal notice obligation, explicitly rejected. The site operators reserve the right to take legal action in case of unsolicited promotional information, such as spam e-mails.
