The security of your personal data is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is 100% secure.

We recommend using antivirus software, a firewall, and other similar software to safeguard your system.

10. Social Media and Links to Third-Party Apps and Websites
Our services contain links to websites or apps that are not operated by us. When you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website or app. We have no control over the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites or services.
We maintain online presences on social networks to, among other things, communicate with customers and prospective customers and to provide information about our products and services. If you have an account on the same network, it is possible that your information and media made available there may be seen by us, for example, when we access your profile. In addition, the social network may allow us to contact you. As soon as we transfer personal data into our own system, we are responsible for this independently. This is then done to carry out pre-contractual measures and to fulfil a contract. For the legal basis of the data processing carried out by the social networks under their own responsibility, please refer to their data protection declarations. Below is a list of social networks on which we operate an online presence:
We send newsletters and other notifications by email and through other communication channels and may deliver them with the help of third parties.
In principle, you must expressly consent to receive newsletters and other notifications from us, unless this is permitted for other legal reasons. We use “double opt-in” for any consent in the case of e-mails, i.e. you will receive an e-mail with a web link that you must click to confirm, so that no misuse by unauthorized third parties can take place. We may log such consents including Internet Protocol (IP) address, date and time.
Newsletters and other notifications may contain web links or tracking pixels that record whether an individual newsletter or notification has been opened and which web links were clicked (performance measurement). Such web links and tracking pixels record the use of newsletters and other notifications. We use this statistical recording of usage, including success and reach measurement, in order to be able to offer newsletters and other notifications effectively and in a user-friendly manner, as well as permanently, securely and reliably, based on the reading habits of the recipients.
You can unsubscribe from newsletters and other notifications at any time and thereby object in particular to the aforementioned collection of usage. You can do so by contacting us directly or following the link included in the footer of each newsletter we send you.
