Particulars on the legal basis and the recipients or categories of recipients can be found in the Section – Processing purposes and legal basis.
Additionally, data may be transferred to other controllers when we are obliged to do so due to statutory regulations or enforceable administrative or judicial orders.

When you access a respective site of our Online Offers that contains an embedded YouTube player, this creates a connection to YouTube so that the video or audio file can be transmitted and played back. In doing so, data is transferred to YouTube as a data controller. We are not responsible for the processing of such data by YouTube.
Additional information on the scope and purpose of collected data, on further processing and usage of data by YouTube, on your rights and the privacy options available to be chosen by you, can be found in YouTube's data protection notice.

We will forward the personal data you provide to the Syntegon legal entity responsible for the processing of your query (for example, in the event your query refers to a product that is distributed by another Syntegon legal entity).
