Data Protection / GDPR

For us, the protection of your data has long been a matter of course. We would therefore like to inform you today about our new privacy policy. We store and process your data, in particular for contractual or pre-contractual purposes, as well as to provide you with the information that is relevant to you.

1. GDPR – Was ist die GDPR?
The Basic Data Protection Regulation, unlike its predecessor, is a regulation rather than a directive. A directive must be transposed into national law by the individual member states of the European Union, while a regulation is directly valid in all Member States as if it were a national law. The Basic Data Protection Regulation seeks to standardize data protection standards in all EU Member States and focuses on the protection of personal data.
