We have appointed a competent and reliable external data protection officer. The external data protection officer is UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co KG.
In the following, we would like to inform you about the processing of personal data:
You can use our online offer without disclosing your identity. If we request personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address) on the website, e.g. in the context of contact forms or during registration, this is done on a voluntary basis. We use this information for our own business purposes (such as sending the requested material/information).
For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on our website. The data marked as mandatory data is required so that we are able to allocate and answer the inquiry. Further information can be provided voluntarily. The data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.
The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be deleted after completion of the enquiry you have made and after expiry of the tax and commercial retention periods.
Once you have given your consent - e.g. for the purpose of sending a newsletter or other interesting information from our company - you can withdraw it at any time without giving reasons with effect for the future. For this purpose, you can use the above-mentioned contact form or any other way mentioned within the newsletter.

The full responsibility for data processing remains with us.
