1. We collect, process and use your personal data only with your consent or if we are permitted to do so by a statutory regulation. We naturally comply with the legal provisions relating to data protection, in particular the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) [Federal Data Protection Act] and the Telemediengesetz (TMG) [Telemedia Act].
