Personal data storage period
With regard to the storage period, we delete personal data as soon as its storage is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the original purpose and any legal retention period has expired. Legal retention periods ultimately provide the criteria for establishing the duration of personal data storage. After this period has expired, the relevant data is routinely deleted. Where retention periods apply, processing is restricted through the blocking of the data.

The transfer of information via the Internet is never 100% secure, meaning we cannot guarantee the security of data transferred to our website via the Internet. We secure our website against loss, destruction, access, change and dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons with technical and organisational measures. For this, we use the coding system SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/ Transport Layer Security). You will be able to recognise this by the fact that, in the status bar of your browser, the padlock symbol will be closed and the address line will start with https://. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. All information that you transfer to us will be stored on servers in Germany, held by a carefully selected web host. Where this data is processed by a processor, we have agreed an appropriate contract for processing with our web host, in accordance with Article 28 GDPR. This ensures that the processing of your personal data conforms to the legal provisions on data protection.
