All transfers of personal data that we carry out are necessary for the fulfilment of the above-mentioned purposes, or are made in order to fulfil a legal obligation:
- To public administrations and the administration of justice, and to law enforcement agencies in compliance with the legal obligations applicable to us.
- Companies providing payment services (payment gateways as Paypal), in case the customer makes a payment through the service offered by one of these companies.

The service providers process the data exclusively on our instructions and are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection regulations.

The servers of some of the service providers we use are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. Companies in these countries are subject to a data protection act that generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the member states of the European Union. If your data is processed in a country that does not have a recognized high level of data protection like the European Union, we use contractual regulations or other recognized instruments to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected. We conclude the data protection agreement (standard data protection clauses) provided by the Commission of the European Union for the processing of personal data in third countries with service providers in third countries. This provides suitable guarantees for the protection of your data with service providers in third countries. Insofar as we have agreed the standard data protection clauses with service providers, you can request a copy of this data protection contract using the contact details given above.
