A content delivery network is an online service that is used in particular to deliver large media files (such as graphics, page content or scripts) through a network of regionally distributed servers connected via the Internet. The use of Cloudflare's Content Delivery Network helps us to optimize the loading speeds of our website. The processing is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in a secure and efficient provision, as well as improvement of the stability and functionality of our website.We have concluded an order processing agreement with Cloudfare (Data Processing Addendum, viewable at https://www.cloudflare.com/media/pdf/cloudflare-customer-dpa.pdf), which obliges Cloudfare to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties. For the transfer of data from the EU to the USA, Cloudfare refers to so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the USA
