We make maximum efforts to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.
Your personal data is transmitted to us in encrypted form. This applies to all forms offered. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but 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 not possible.
To protect your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we continually adapt to the state of the art.
We also do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully secured on a regular basis.
9. Transfer of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries
In principle, we only use your personal data within our company.
If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("commissioned processing"), we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject. Data transfer to entities or persons outside the EU outside the cases mentioned in this statement in sections 4 and 5 does not take place and is not planned.
