This applies not only to the data we store in our Registers in accordance with our assignment, but also to you. Namely, whenever you surf the web and visit our web pages. We want you to know which data are stored when you visit our web pages and what they are used for. It is particularly important for us to protect your privacy when you use our web pages. We have therefore taken all the technical and organisational measures necessary to live up to these requirements.
