We adhere to these provisions. Personal data is treated in the strictest confidence and not sold or passed on to third parties. In close collaboration with our hosting providers, we endeavour to protect our databases against unauthorised access, loss, misuse and forgery to the best of our ability.

It is impossible to provide 100% secure protection for data against third-party access.
