Data Protection Statement
In an increasingly digitised world, the protection of personal data is very important to us. For this reason, compliance with data protection laws is a fundamental component of our corporate philosophy. In collaboration with our provider, we strive for high data protection standards to prevent your data from loss, abuse or access by unknown persons.
Personal data is all the information or details which allow you to be identified personally. These include names, IP addresses, location data, an online identifier (e.g. cookie) or other characteristics, which allow the unequivocal identification of a person.
The meanings of the different terms are defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
