The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies necessary for the provision of its services free from technical errors and to optimise the provision of its services.

The data you provide to us through the contact form is kept by us until such time as you request that it be deleted, you withdraw your consent or the purpose of the data storage ceases to apply (e.g. after your request has been fully processed).
