If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that in these countries no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this.

We have no influence on these processing activities.

The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability

process automatically, to have it handed over to itself or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.
