Data privacy

Protection of your personal data is very important for us. We treat your data confidentially and in accordance with data protection regulations, especially with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). However, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may have security gaps, which is why complete protection is impossible..
