The possible messenger service providers are:
I acknowledge that the respective provider might receive personal data (including communication meta data) that might be processed at servers located in countries outside of the EU (e.g. USA) that do not guarantee the same level of data protection as that practiced in the EU.

Your agreement to this data processing can be revoked at any time by sending “stop” in the respective messenger.
To delete all data that is stored by our technical service provider, please send a message with “delete all data” through your messenger.
