We collect this data from you automatically when you visit this website or if you provide it to us via this website (e.g. by completing a contact form or signing up for our newsletter).

You are under no obligation to provide us with the data we ask you for. However, if you do not provide your data, you will not be able to make use of all the functions of this website. Should the provision of your data be mandatory by law, we will inform you separately thereof.

We will process the data set out above for the purposes of making this website and your user account available to you, to administer the user account, to further optimise and develop our website, to recognise, prevent and investigate attacks of our website, to analyse the usage of our website, to generate website access statistics, to analyse and forecast customer demand, to provide our newsletter and allow you to make inquiries using this website.

The legal basis of the processing of your personal data is our prevailing legitimate interest to achieve the purposes identified above (Article 6(1)(f) EU General Data Protection Regulation) or, where you have given us your consent, your consent (Article 6(1)(a) EU General Data Protection Regulation).

However, we only transfer your personal data to countries where the EU Commission has decided that they have an adequate level of data protection or we take measures to ensure that all recipients provide an adequate level of data protection. We do this for example by entering into appropriate data transfer agreements based on Standard Contractual Clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC).
