Collection, processing, or use of Personal Data
Personal data is collected, processed, or used by us only when you provide it to us voluntarily or with consent, and where it is within the scope of the law.
As a point of principle, you can visit our website without telling us who you are. Every access to our website and every request for a file stored on our website are logged. This logging relates solely to information, which does not allow you to be identified. The following data is logged: name of the requested file, date and time of the request, amount of data transferred, notification of successful request, web browser used, and requesting domain.
Our website collects and stores data in an anonymised form for marketing and optimisation purposes. The data will not be used to identify visitors to this website and will not be aggregated with other information about the bearer of the pseudonym. You can, at any time, revoke consent to this processing of your data by our website.
As a matter of practice, we will only collect such data as required for the provision of services, for example the answering of your questions. This information will be stored and encrypted on secure servers.

• Other information relevant for the organization
• Your credit card number (for transaction purposes)
• Your questions/comments
The information collected in relation to persons under 18 years of age is limited to their name, nationality and date of birth, which can only be supplied to us by an adult. We would be grateful if you could ensure that your children do not send us any personal data without your consent (particularly via the Internet).
We do not deliberately collect sensitive information, such as information concerning race, ethnicity, political opinions, religious and philosophical beliefs, union membership, or details of health or sexual orientation.

In order to guarantee that, we have to share your personal data with internal and external recipients subject to the following conditions:
a. in order to offer you the best service, we can share your personal data and give access to authorized personnel, including:
• IT departments

Protection of your Personal Data during international transfer
For the data collection purposes, we may transfer your personal data to internal or external recipients who may be in countries offering different levels of personal data protection.
Consequently, in addition to implementation of this policy, we employ appropriate measures to ensure secure transfer of your personal data to another entity or to an external recipient located in a country offering a different level of privacy from that proposed in the country where the personal data is collected.
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures, in accordance with applicable legal provisions, to protect your personal data against illicit or accidental destruction, accidental alteration or loss, and unauthorized access or disclosure. To this end, we have taken technical measures (such as firewalls) and organizational measures (such as a user ID/password system, means of physical protection etc.).

We retain your personal data only for the period necessary for the purposes set out in this document or in accordance with the provisions of applicable law.
Protection of Minors
Children and adolescents with limited legal capacity are as a matter of principle not allowed to transfer any personal data to our website without prior consent of their parents or legal guardian. We will in no way knowingly collect personal data from children or adolescents with limited legal capacity, use these data in any form, or divulge these data to third parties without authorization.
Deletion of Collected Data
Deletion of the collected data occurs when you revoke your agreement to the processing of such data, when the knowledge of your data will no longer be necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose that lead to the collection and processing of your data, or where the processing of your data is not permitted by law.
Our website hosts plug-ins from common social networks. If you use such a plug-in, a connection to the servers of the relevant social network will be established, and information about your visit to our website will be transferred.
