Purposes of processing

We process the data of our interested parties, contractual and business partners only within the framework of given legal relationships for our services and communication. E.g., to answer inquiries.


Transfer of pbD to third parties

Should the commissioning of another company and consequently the transfer or disclosure of your data to them be necessary within the scope of our business processes, this will only be done on the basis of your consent, a legal permission, a legal obligation or on the basis of legitimate interests (e.g. when using web designers, web hosts, etc.). If we commission third parties with the processing of data on the basis of a so-called "order processing agreement (AV)", this is done in accordance with the Art. 28 DSGVO.
