To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we continually adapt to the state of the art.
Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our offer is available at certain times; disturbances, interruptions or failures cannot be excluded. The servers used by us are regularly and carefully backed up.

If and insofar as we involve third parties in the fulfilment of contracts, these third parties will only receive personal data to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing (“contract processing”), we contractually oblige contract processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
A data transfer to places or persons outside the EU does not take place and is not planned.
