Protection of personal data
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an 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.

Handling of comments and contact requests
When contacting us via our contact form, the information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
Newsletter and mass communication measures
We only send out newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with the consent of the recipients or on the basis of a statutory authorisation. If the content of the newsletter is described specifically when users subscribe, this content is decisive with regard to users’ consent. Our newsletters also contain information about our services and about us as a company. In order to subscribe to our newsletters, it is generally sufficient for you to provide your e-mail address. We may, however, ask you to provide a name so that we can address you personally in the newsletter, or ask you to provide other information if this is necessary for the purposes of the newsletter.
The dispatch of our newsletters is based on the consent granted by the recipients or, if consent is not required, on our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and to the extent permitted by law, for example in cases involving advertising to existing customers. If we commission a service provider to send out e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests so that we can prove that the legal requirements were met.
