On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

Recipients and data transmission

We have bundled certain data processing operations in our company. These can be handled centrally by our individual company departments, for example to process inquiries.

Data transfer to third countries

A data transfer to third countries (countries outside the EU and the European Economic Area EEA) only takes place insofar as this is necessary for the execution of a contract / order / the business relationship including the initiation or due to our legitimate interest or is permissible on the basis of your consent and only in compliance with the data protection requirements stipulated for this.

Note on data transfer to the USA

Services from companies based in the USA are integrated into our website. As part of the use of these services, personal data can be transmitted to the US server of the respective service provider. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take sufficient legal action against this. It can therefore not be completely ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
