Handling of personal data on this website

This data is only recorded to the technically required extent and only used for statistical purposes and for the optimization of our website.

Naturally, all personal data is treated confidentially and not disclosed to any third party. The data submitted is used solely for the purpose for which it was provided by the user. For example, should you send us your e-mail address, we will only use this e-mail address to answer your query or to correspond with you. Occasionally, you will have the opportunity to participate in special promotions run by our company. By participating, you agree to the disclosure of your personal information to the participating service providers (e.g. in order to deliver promotional items to your specified address). Our service providers are instructed by us to treat the obtained information in confidence and to use it exclusively for the individual case and to delete it once the service has been completed.
