DATA PROTECTION

Data protection is the process of safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise or loss. The importance of data protection increases as the amount of data created and stored continues to grow at unprecedented rates. 

1. General information and mandatory information

  • The protection of your personal data is particularly important to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this data protection information we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of our website.

  • If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.

  • We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

  • Your data will not be used for automated decision-making.

  • If you have consented to the processing of your data for a specific purpose (e.g. as part of participation in a competition), while your data is also being processed on another basis (e.g. to fulfill a contract), processing based on the consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time without this affecting other processing of your data.
