We take the protection of your personal rights very seriously. We assure that we will not sell or rent your information to other providers.

  1. Data Security

The protection of your personal data takes place through appropriate organisational and technical precautions. These precautions relate in particular to protection against unauthorised, unlawful or accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation.

Please note that we therefore accept no liability whatsoever for the disclosure of information due to non-caused errors in the data transfer and / or unauthorised access by third parties (eg hacking on e-mail account or telephone, intercepting faxes and letters).

But we also take internal precautions to protect your personal data from loss, theft and misuse and from unauthorised access, disclosure, modification and destruction.
