Important information about the processing of personal data
Dear Sir or Madam,
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018. This significantly improves data protection for data subjects in the European Union.
The GDPR is the most important data protection regulation in Europe since the EU Data Protection Directive of 1995. After a two-year transition period, the GDPR now replaces the outdated EU Data Protection Directive and, to a large extent, national data protection laws. Unlike a directive, a regulation applies directly in all member states of the EU without the need for national transposition laws. In this respect, uniform rules and regulations on data protection across the EU were created for the first time.
We are aware that diligence is the basis for trustful cooperation with our customers. Compliance with laws and regulations in general is just as important to us and our employees as the lawful and sensitive handling of personal data in particular.
To help you better understand the various aspects and implications of the new regulation, we are happy to provide you with an overview in the attached data protection notices of how our company processes personal data. Also included is information on who you can contact if you have any queries or a matter that needs attention.

We use components of the LinkedIn network on our website. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Every time you visit our website that includes such a component, this component prompts your browser to download a corresponding image of the component from LinkedIn.
Through this process, LinkedIn is informed about which specific page of our website is currently being accessed. By clicking the LinkedIn “recommend button” while logged in to your LinkedIn account, you can link content from our website to your LinkedIn profile.
