Our website can generally be used without having to provide any personal information. Insofar as personal data are collected on our pages (such as name, address, or e-mail address), this will only ensue, where possible, on a voluntary basis. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

Please note that there can be gaps in the security of data transmitted over the internet (such as when communicating by e-mail). All-round protection of the data against third-party intervention is not possible.

We hereby expressly object to the third-party use of contact data which have been published in accordance with editorial requirements for the purposes of unsolicited advertising and promotional material. The operator of the website explicitly reserves the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited provision of promotional information, such as spam mails.
