7. Transmission of data over the Internet
The Internet is a globally open platform. Due to the Internet's inherent mode of operation and the systemic risks involved, any data transmissions are made at your own risk. Other conditions only apply if we provide a means for encrypted transmission.

You may revoke your consent for your information to be saved and for the newsletter to be delivered at any time. To do so, you can use the link provided within the email delivered to you or opt out directly on our website.
