We would like to inform you about the legal regulations and how, to what extent and why we record and use your personal data.
Whenever you retrieve content from our website, some data is automatically collected and used. Due to the nature of the internet, this data has to be processed on a number of servers before your request reaches our web server; therefore, the possibility exists that data is collected and used in third countries (e.g. the United States). Our company has no influence on this process. Aside from these inevitable technical processes, we do not transmit any personal data to countries that are not subject to the EU Data Protection Directive.
If you have questions about our data protection regulation and processes, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
