We treat all personal data provided to us confidentially, in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. They will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

However, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is therefore not possible.
