We process personal data for the duration necessary for the purpose or purposes in question. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we restrict the processing accordingly.

You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Data transmission security (without SSL)
Please note that data transmitted via an open network such as the Internet or an e-mail service without SSL encryption can be viewed by anyone.

We assume no responsibility for the security of your data during transmission via the Internet and accept no liability for direct or indirect losses. We ask you to use other means of communication if you consider this necessary or reasonable for security reasons. Despite extensive technical and organizational security precautions, data may be lost or intercepted and/or manipulated by unauthorized persons.

As a website operator, we are in no way liable for any damage you may suffer as a result of loss or manipulation of data.
