If you use external links which are offered within the framework of the internet operations of the VKD, this data protection declaration does not extend to these links. If we offer links we make every effort to ensure that these also comply with our standards. However, we have no influence over whether other operators comply with the data protection rules. Therefore please also make your own enquiries about the data protection declarations which apply to the web pages of the other operators.

If you have any questions about the processing of your personal data, please contact us. We would be glad to assist you if you require further information, have suggestions, or would like to register a complaint.
