Disclosure of personal data
As a globally active company, Pematech GmbH has a global Internet presence.

This might be necessary in order to render a service you require, e.g. to handle orders, for customer service purposes or in order to inform you about services or products.
When passing on personal data to third parties, we restrict this to the information required to render the services in question. The relevant third-party provider is allowed to use this personal data only in order to render the required service. Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or otherwise made available to third parties for marketing purposes without your express consent. Pematech might be forced to disclose your data and associated information if requested to do so by the courts or authorities.
