This also applies to the withdrawal of declarations of consent that you gave us prior to the validity of the GDPR on May 25, 2018. The withdrawal of consent affects the future and does not affect the legality of the data processed up to the revocation.

Recipients of personal data can be, for example: print service providers, dealers, analysis specialists, processing companies
Data transmission, in particular by way of administrative access to organizations or states outside the European Union (third country transmission), is not possible on the basis of the aforementioned purposes and legal bases.
