Communication via e-mail and this website

Communication via e-mail and this website (e.g. using a contact form) is not protected against attacks by third parties and should not therefore be considered either secure or confidential. You therefore use this means of communication at your own risk and by doing so you agree that we may also communicate with you by e-mail.

Timely communication

Although we check our mailbox on a daily basis, we cannot guarantee that e-mails sent to us will be received in a timely manner. We therefore ask you to send us urgent or important messages by post, courier or fax. Merely sending e-mails to us is not proof of delivery in terms of compliance with deadlines. If you want reassurance that your e-mail messages have been received properly and on time, please request a confirmation of receipt from us. Courts and authorities who wish to send us official documents in due form and time (orders, judgements, etc.) are referred to the relevant providers (IncaMail, Privatsphäre, etc.) and advised that legal requirements must be complied with.

We use ‘Google Analytics’, particularly for statistical purposes and to optimise the website. No personal data is collected when ‘Google Analytics’ is used.
