This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
