3 General information about data processing

We only process personal data to the extent allowed by law. Personal data will only be disclosed in the situations described below (see section 4 below).

Personal data is deleted or protected by technical and organisational measures (e.g. pseudonymisation, encryption) as soon as the purpose of the processing lapses.

To the extent that we are not obliged by law to store personal data for a longer period or to disclose personal data to third parties (in particular law enforcement authorities), the decision as to which personal data is collected by us, how long it is stored and the extent of any disclosure depends on which functions of the website you are using on a case-by-case basis.
