This site uses SSL/TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential material such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the website operator. Encrypted connections can be recognised by the address line in your browser changing to begin with ‘https://’ instead of ‘http://’ and also by the lock symbol in the address bar.
Activated SSL/TLS encryption means that third parties cannot read the data you submit to us.
Encrypted payments on this website
After you have entered into a chargeable contract with us, you may be required to provide us with your payment details for payment processing (e.g. account number for a direct debit mandate).
All transactions using standard payment options (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are processed via an encrypted SSL/TLS connection. Encrypted connections can be recognised by the address line in your browser changing to begin with ‘https://’ instead of ‘http://’ and also by the lock symbol.
Encrypted communication means that third parties cannot read the payment details you submit to us.

We process personal data according to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data if it is necessary for the performance of a contract, or to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
When you submit an enquiry via a contact form, we store the information you have provided, including your contact details, in order to process the enquiry and for the purposes of any follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The data provided in the contact form is thus processed exclusively based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. Informal notification via email is sufficient. The lawfulness of any processing prior to you withdrawing your consent remains unaffected.
We will retain the data you have provided via the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for data storage ceases to apply (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). This shall not affect any statutory provisions – notably retention periods.
