The following gives a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website.

How do we collect your data?

Some data are collected when you provide it to us. This could, for example, be data you enter on a contact form on our website or on other portals.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time simply contacting us per e-mail. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

6.2. SSL or TLS encryption

You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
