The following provisions provide information on the nature, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data.

This Data Privacy Statement relates to our websites. If you are forwarded to other sites via links on our websites, information on the processing of your data is available on those sites. We should advise you that data transfer via the internet (e.g. communication via email) may be vulnerable. Complete protection of data against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed.
