How do we protect your data?
We take appropriate technical measures in accordance with GDPR Article 32, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs, and the nature, scope, circumstances, and purposes of the processing, as well as the different likelihood and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk; Measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as their access, input, disclosure, availability, and separation. We have also set up procedures to ensure the enjoyment of data subject rights, data deletion, and data vulnerability. Furthermore, we consider the protection of personal data already in the development, or selection of hardware, software, and procedures, according to the principle of data protection through privacy by design and privacy by default settings (GDPR Article 25). Your data is protected against abusive access and loss through versatile measures electronically, technically, contractually, and administratively. We use security techniques (such as SSL encryption, cryptographic techniques) to protect your data against unauthorized access.
Will your data be shared with third parties?
If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties), transmit data to them, or otherwise grant them access to the data, this is done only on the basis of a legal permission, e.g. if a transmission of the data to third parties, such as to payment service providers, acc. to GDPR Article 6 para. 1 lit. b is required to fulfill the contract. You have consented to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests.
In order to be able to offer you our service optimally, we use, among others, service providers who work on our behalf. If this is the case, corresponding order agreements have been concluded with the service providers acc. to GDPR Article 28.
Transfers to third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)), this will only be done if it is necessary to fulfill our (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, due to a legal obligation, or based on our legitimate interests. We only process the data in a third country if the special conditions according to GDPR Article 44 ff. are fulfilled. That means the processing will be done e.g. on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized statement of an EU level of data protection (e.g. the Privacy Shield for the USA) or observance of officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").

The data is used in anonymous form for evaluations and statistics.
