You always have the option, for example, of sending your enquiries to us using the address or email address shown in our Masthead or on the contact form. The choice of the appropriate communication channel is your own re­spon­si­bility.

We will delete your personal data if it is no longer needed for the processing purposes identified above and no legal archiving obligations stand in the way of their deletion.

Data processing by operators of social media platforms

The operators of social media platforms use web tracking methods. Such web tracking may also occur irrespective of whether you are logged on or registered with the social media platform.

Please be aware that it is not out of the question for a social media platform to use your profile and user behaviour data in order to assess such things as your habits, personal relation­ships, preferences etc. We have no influence over the processing of your data by the operator of a social media plat­form, and there­fore the use of the social media plat­form is your own re­spon­sibility.
