Privacy Policy

We value our followers and respect your privacy.

This Privacy Policy applies to our offline and online data collection practices, including when you visit our website and any website owned, operated, or controlled by us, contact us by phone or email, or when you engage with us on social media.

We may update this Policy from time to time, as specified in the “Changes to This Privacy Policy” section below.

Your Consent
You should read this entire Policy before submitting information to us or using our Site. Whenever you submit personal information to us, you consent to the collection, use, disclosure, transfer and storage of that information in accordance with this Policy.

We may make full use of all information that is de-identified, aggregated, or otherwise not in personally identifiable form.

Information Collection and Use
Information Collection and Use We collect personal information using three methods:

1) from you;
2) using automated technology including when you visit our Site or communicate with us through email; and
3) through third party sources including our service providers.
All personal information will be used as stated in this Policy. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy and as otherwise needed to comply with applicable law and internal company policies.

We may combine data collected from these disparate sources unless we tell you otherwise.

Retention of Data
We will retain your personal information (collected through offline and online methods) for as long as it is necessary for the purposes described in this Policy. We will also retain and use your personal information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

We take reasonable appropriate steps to protect personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, whether in transmission or storage. Please keep in mind, however, that there is no such thing as perfect security, and no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free.

We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology hosted by a third party and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider’s database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and who are required to keep the information confidential.

Wordfence Security
The „Wordfence Security“ service, which is operated by Defiant Inc, 800 5th Ave, Suite 4100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA, is used to secure our online offering. The use is based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
The website uses the PlugIn to protect against viruses and malware and to defend against attacks by computer criminals. In order to recognize whether the visitor is a human or a robot, the PlugIn sets cookies. For the purpose of protection against brute force and DDoS attacks or comment spam, IP addresses are stored on Wordfence servers. IP addresses classified as harmless are placed on a white list. Wordfence Security secures our website and thus protects visitors to the website from viruses and malware. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The option „Participate in the Real-Time Wordfence Security Network“ of the PlugIn is switched off, as it is not mandatory.

More information on the collection and use of data by Wordfence Security can be found in Defiant’s privacy policy:
