Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties
As a matter of principle we do not share any identifiable personal information with third parties without your explicit consent. If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to others (contract processors or third parties), transfer it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this is done on the basis of a legal permission that you have consented to, a legal obligation that provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests.
Form Fields (such as in contact forms) and Making Contact by E-mail
As far as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are requested on our site (for example in a contact form), this will be done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. Only such fields in forms are marked mandatory that are required for using our offer. Where possible, we waive denomination of a clear name.
If you contact us via contact form the form’s mandatory information including your contact data will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your request and for possible follow-up questions. We will not disclose your data to third parties without your consent.
In this context we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. during communication by e-mail) is subject to security gaps. Complete data protection from access by third parties is not possible.
You may withdraw your consent to store your data, your e-mail address, as well as your consent to use these data for the delivery of our newsletter at any time, p. ex. via the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.
To protect our contact form from spam, we use Really Simple CAPTCHA by Takayuki Miyoshi. This plugin can be used to distinguish whether a human or a robot fill out the form. Really Simple CAPTCHA is an open source software; the IP address transmitted under “Really Simple CAPTCHA” will not be merged with other data from “Really Simple CAPTCHA”. More information about “Really Simple CAPTCHA” can be found here: https://wordpress.org/…really-simple-captcha/
