8. Hosting on Vercel and Hygraph

(1) To provide the best user experience, we have decided to use modern hosting services. In doing so, personal data (e.g., IP address) is transferred to companies based in the USA. There is no adequacy decision of the EU Commission for the USA. There are also no appropriate safeguards for the transfer of personal data. Therefore, there is a risk that personal data may be processed incorrectly or insecurely or may be accessed and further processed by third parties, or that data subject rights may not be enforced.
