1. Personal Data

“Personal data” means any information concerning personal or factual circumstances relating to a specific or identifiable natural person. Information which cannot be linked to a natural person (or only by exerting disproportionate effort) does not constitute personal data.

In the relevant places you will find separate information about the specific process and where appropriate an informed consent. You can freely decide whether or not you want us to process your data.

However, in certain cases it is required by law that we transfer your personal data to third parties, e.g. transfer to the law enforcement authorities if a crime is suspected.
