Data Security

During your visit to our website we use the widespread SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the highest level of encryption your browser supports. In general, this is a 256 bit encryption.

In case your browser does not support the 256 bit encryption, we will revert to 128 bit v3 technology instead.

The symbol of the closed key – or the key symbol in general – in the bottom status bar of your browser shows you that a page of our internet presence is transmitted in an encrypted way.

Additionally, we employ suitable technical and organizational security measures to

protect your personal data from being accidentally or deliberately manipulated, from getting partially or completely lost, from being corrupted or from being accessed by unauthorized third parties.

Our preventive security measures are constantly updated in line with the technological development.
