That is why we act in accordance with privacy and data security laws (such as the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)). Our Privacy Policy below contains detailed information on how data are collected and used.

Privacy Policy

The use by third parties of contact details published as part of the obligation to provide a legal notice in order to send advertising and information material that have not been expressly requested is hereby expressly rejected. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal steps if unsolicited advertising, such as email spam, is sent.
