We will select our data processors and conclude suitable contractual agreements to ensure that your Personal data is protected for the entire period during which it is processed.
We may furthermore transfer Personal data to other third parties for their own purposes. This is done either on an anonymous basis, so that your identity cannot be deduced, or solely with you permission. In these cases, the recipient’s own data privacy policies apply.
We may additionally disclose Personal data to third parties (e.g. authorities) where required to do so by law. We furthermore reserve the right to process Personal data if so required to comply with a judicial order or to enforce or defend against a legal claim, or if we deem it necessary for any other legal grounds.

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures (e.g. encryption, access restriction, data backup and instructions to our employees etc.) in order to protect the user’s Personal data adequate to the related risk. As a general rule, however, security risks cannot be completely excluded; certain residual risks are unavoidable.

"Cookies" are small files that are stored on users' computers. Different information can be stored within cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after a visit to an online service. Temporary cookies (or "session cookies" or "transient cookies"), are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online service and closes their browser. For example, this type of cookie can store the content of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status. The term "permanent" or "persistent" refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser has been closed. For example, a login status can be saved if users visit it several days later. Likewise, this kind of cookie can store the interests of a user which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. A "third-party cookie" refers to cookies that are offered by providers other than the controller who manages the online service (otherwise, if only their own cookies are used, these are called "first-party cookies").
If a user does not want cookies stored on her computer, she will be asked to disable the option in her browser's system settings. Saved cookies can be deleted in the browser’s system settings. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online service.
When contacting us (for example via a contact form or an e-mail), the details of the user are stored in order to process the request as well as in the event that follow-up questions arise.
