Information about Data Protection:The data protection regulations protect personal data, as well as indirect personal data. This is data regarding natural or legal individuals. Personal data is information which identifies or can identify an individual. Indirect personal data is information from which clients, service providers or receivers of information can not determine the identity of an individual by legally permissive means.

We in turn assure you that only absolutely essential data will be collected and that we will protect this data at all time. If you simply visit our website, we collect only indirect personal data. In other words, you can visit our website without revealing your identity. We can merely establish the name of your internet service provider and your IP address, the name of the website from which you visit ours and which of our website pages you go to. This information is analysed for statistical purposes in order to improve the services we offer but the individual users remain anonymous.
