Third countries are countries in which the GDPR is not a directly applicable law. This basically includes all countries outside the EU, respectively, the European Economic Area.

A copy of the suitable guarantees is available under the following links:

Length of storage of your personal data
We adhere to the principles of data economy and data avoidance. This means the data made available to us is only retained for as long as it is needed to fulfil the previously named purposes or as laid down by the manifold storage periods provided for by the legislator. If the relevant purpose no longer exists, respectively after expiry of the appropriate period, your data is routinely blocked, respectively erased, in accordance with the statutory provisions

We have developed a company-internal concept to guarantee this procedure.

Protection of your personal data
We take state of the art contractual, organizational and technical security measures to ensure compliance with the provisions of the data protection laws and therefore, to protect the data which we process against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.
