Within the framework of website visits, we use the widespread SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol in conjunction with the highest applicable encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this will be 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the ‘closed’ depiction of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. In other respects, we use the appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from accidental or deliberate tampering, partial or complete loss, destruction, or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
