Various items of personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.

Please be aware that there may be flaws in security when transmitting data via the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email). It is not possible to protect all data completely against access by third parties.

When SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
