  • registering (e.g. for a newsletter while making an application)

Use and disclosure of personal data

Insofar as you have made personal data available to us, we will use this exclusively for the purpose of the technical administration of our website and fulfilling your requests, and in particular for performing any contract concluded with you or to respond to your enquiries.

Beyond that no personal information will be passed on to third parties. 

Within the scope described above, your personal information may be passed on to companies associated with us (Article 15 et seq. of the German Public Companies Act – AktG) and/or to specific-purpose third parties that are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA) whose level of data protection need not conform to the European standard.
