Website security. This is the processing of necessary cookies that contribute to protection against bots and to the activation of website protection against DoS/DDoS cyber-attacks. When achieving the purpose, cookies from Google ReCaptcha are also used to read and filter robot requests.

Do we transfer your data to third countries outside the EU / EEA?
Yes, but only in necessary and to a minimal extent. Some of our suppliers we use when using cookies, have their registered office or their other group companies are established in the United States of America, which are generally considered to be a third country which does not guarantee an adequate level of the personal data protection. In many cases, the data may not physically leave servers located in the EU but processing due to the supplier’s location may be subject to the law of a third country. We therefore carry out these cross-border transfers only in strict accordance with the law (in particular the GDPR) and only if, in our conclusions and findings, sufficient risk mitigation measures and safeguards are taken for the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subjects, as required by the Court of Justice in Case C-311/18 (Schrems II).
