In general, our website is accessible without having to provide any personal data.

In order to protect your personal data, we have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that any data transmission on the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) is generally not secure and we accept no liability for data transmitted to us via the internet. Unfortunately, absolute protection is not technically possible.

We have configured these elements so that they are deactivated by default. If you activate them (by clicking on them), the operators of the respective social networks can register that you are on our website and can use this information for their purposes.
