For this reason, your data is protected in compliance with statutory provisions. By using our websites, you agree to the collection, processing and use of data as described below. The following information sets out what data is collected during your visit to our websites and how it is used: 

Personal Data

“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; a natural person is considered identifiable if such person can be identified directly or indirectly, and in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, identification number, location data, online identifier, or to one or more specific characteristics that are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that individual.

These individual details relating to personal or factual circumstances include, for example, such information as name, address, telephone number and email address.

Collection and Use of Personal Data

In order to provide the services that you request, we may in certain cases require you to enter your name and address along with other information. Where this is necessary, you will be expressly informed in a corresponding manner.

When using services through our websites, as a rule, we only collect such personal data as required to provide these services.  

Where further personal data is requested, this relates to such data that we are legally permitted to collect, or such data for which you have provided a separate declaration of consent to our collection and use.

We will only collect and use your personal data for the purpose for which you have voluntarily provided it.

You can also visit our websites without entering any personal information. In this regard, we do not store any personal data.
