There is no obligation to provide your real name, the use of pseudonyms is possible.

Our security measures are continuously optimised in accordance with technological developments.

Article 10 - Amendments to the Privacy Statement

 We reserve the right to amend this privacy statement from time to time in the future, in particular to incorporate changes in jurisdiction or legislation. We therefore recommend that you regularly visit this website to stay informed about the protection and processing of your data.

Article 11 - General

We at L.B. BOHLE also take company-internal data protection very seriously.

The relevant statutory provisions require personal data to be processed in such a way as to guarantee the rights of the data subjects to the confidentiality and integrity of their data. According to these regulations, it is prohibited to process personal data without authorization or unlawfully or to intentionally or unintentionally violate the security of the processing in a way that leads to destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized access.

Our employees have therefore been obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and in particular to comply with the data protection regulations for maintaining confidentiality in accordance with Art. 5 (1) (f), Art. 32 (4) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

 Employees are therefore prohibited from processing or using personal data without authorization or making it accessible to third parties in any form. If external service providers are commissioned by L.B. BOHLE to process personal data for the first time, they are contractually obliged to comply with the requirements of Art. 28 General Data Protection Regulation.
