The following regulations inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail or via unencrypted websites) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

When you commission our editorial team to send out our regularly published brochure “Gehört Gelesen”, your submitted or entered data will be checked manually or automatically against the existing database for validity and up-to-date nature and, if necessary, compared in order to correct the data stored by us. To do this, it may be necessary for someone from our Executive Board to contact you. This is done by e-mail or telephone. The data you enter will be used exclusively for processing the dispatch of our brochure or activities; the data will not be passed on to third parties.
