Your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) will only be processed by us in accordance with the statutory provisions. The legal basis of data protection can be found in the EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The following regulations inform you in this respect about the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data by the responsible body:

You can object to this processing at any time with effect for the future.
Otherwise we process your personal data only with your consent (Article 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. a) DSGVO); you can revoke this at any time.

(4) If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we hereby expressly inform you of the consequences of this circumstance.
