The following information gives you an overview of how we collect and process your data. You have the right to information, correction, blocking or deletion of your data at any time.

What data we collect about you
On the one hand, your data is collected because you provide it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in our contact form. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you access our platform.
In order to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure, we also use so-called cookies for data collection and storage. Cookies are small data packages that are stored on your terminal device and do not cause any damage.
We use tracking services to collect information about the behavior of visitors to our sites. This allows us to ensure an optimal user experience. These services create pseudonymous user profiles with the help of cookies, so that it is not possible to draw direct conclusions about individuals. Of course, you can object to the creation of these profiles at any time. By the way, every access device can be configured in such a way that, as a matter of principle, no cookies can be created in the first place or that they are deleted again directly after the session.
Our pages contain buttons from various social networks so that you can recommend our offers, services and/or products to other interested parties. When you click on such a button, data such as your current IP address, browser and access device information (type and operating system), screen resolution, whether you have plug-ins installed, the referrer (from where you came to the page) and the current URL are transmitted to the page operator.

- automatically via your visit to our pages

In addition to the purposes already mentioned, we are also subject to legal requirements. These are:
- possible requests for information (and the associated disclosure) to government agencies
- possible requests for information (and the associated disclosure) to copyright holders
- detection of misuse of our services
- Troubleshooting or prevention of malfunctions
