Data Privacy Statement

It is generally possible to use this website without divulging personal data. To the extent that personal data (e.g., name, address, or email address) is collected, this occurs on a voluntary basis. This information is not shared with third parties without the express consent of the person involved. Due to the nature of data transfer via the Internet (e.g. email communications) and the potential for a security breach, it is not possible to completely eliminate the chance of personal data becoming available to third parties.

It is expressly forbidden to use the contact data required by law for advertising or data collection purposes which have not been explicitly approved or requested by the owner of this website.

On behalf this website’s owner, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports about website activities, and provide the website’s operator with further services related to website and Internet usage.
