XI. Data security

Within the visit of our website, we use the common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the respectively highest encryption stage supported by your browser.

You will recognize the transmission of an individual page of our Internet presence in an encrypted manner from the closed representation of the key or lock symbol, resp., in the lower status bar of your browser.

Any data personally transmitted by you shall be transferred encrypted with the generally common and secure standard TLS (Transport Layer Security). TLS is a secure and proven standard, which is also used for, e.g., online banking. You will recognize a secure TLS connection, among other things, from the “s” attached to the http (i.e. https://..) in the address bar of your browser or from the lock symbol in the lower area of your browser.
Apart from that, we use suitable technical and organizational security measures in order to protect your data from accidental or deliberate manipulations, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved according to the technological development.
