4. Minors

We are particularly interested in protecting the personal data of minors. For this reason, we do not knowingly collect, process or use the data of minors unless a parent or guardian has granted his/her consent. As soon as we realise that minors have entered their personal data without such consent or personal data has been entered about such persons, we will delete this information immediately.

5. Right to information

The customer always has the right to information about the data saved about his/her person, including information about the origin of these data, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the data were forwarded as well as the purpose of storage.

6. Deletion and blocking

We undertake to delete the personal data which are processed for our own use as soon as the data are no longer required for the purpose for which they are being stored. Instead of deletion, the data shall be blocked if deletion is opposed by retention periods required by statute, the articles of association

or contract, there is reason to believe that deletion would impair interests of the party concerned which are worthy of protection or deletion is not possible or only with disproportionate expense owing to the type of storage.
Furthermore, you can have your data collected by us blocked, corrected or deleted at any time. We will also delete your data if you revoke your consent to collection, processing and use of the personal data. If you revoke your data during an on-going business transaction, we will delete your data immediately on its completion.
Further-reaching statutory deletion or blocking duties remain unaffected.

7.Technical and organisational measures

We undertake to take the technical and organisational measures necessary to ensure that the data protection requirements are satisfied providing that they are not disproportionate to the intended purpose.
