    • Generally the World Wide Web is considered to be an insecure medium. Compared to a telephone circuit or transmission of data over the Internet for example may easily be tapped, recorded or even modified by unauthorized third parties. To ensure confidential communication, we use SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. At the current standard of knowledge the possible encryption of 128 Bit is regarded as safe. All browsers of the latest generation achieve this security level. You may need to update your browser.

    • A firewall system inhibits external admission. When transmitting, several levels of encryption and identification exclude unauthorized requests or trapping of customer data.

    • Your personal information is used to display contents and promotion matching your interests.

    • To guarantee confidentiality and safety of your personal data we apply the following in-house safety measures:
