Protection of your data

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously.
The use of our website is generally possible without having to provide personal information. To the extent that personal data (for example, name and e-mail address) is collected through our web pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. We use your data exclusively for the purpose which you communicate to us, namely to process your requests, for concluded contracts, or to grant access to the login area.

If you register for our login area, we collect and store your personal data. This may include in particular: your name, e-mail address, user name, and password. At the same time, the logon time of the customer as well as the downloaded document are saved. This data may be disseminated to external contractors in accordance with Section 11 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG), i.e. to a contractor for the hosting and the technical support of our website.
