General Information and Mandatory Disclosures
We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g., when communicating via email) can have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. 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.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
-- In case of doubt, the German version of the GDPR (Datenschutz-Grundverordnung) shall prevail. --
