Legal Information and Privacy Statement

Our website is SSL-encrypted

The security of your data is important to us. For that reason we secure the transfer of your data with a certified SSL connection (Secure Socket Layer) that guarantees that your personal data can be transferred securely over the internet. An encrypted page can be recognised by the small closed lock symbol in your browser's address bar (often shown in green) and also by the start of the URL being "https" instead of "http". SSL encryption ensures that the data exchanged between our website and the visitor cannot be read by third parties (e.g. in a public WLAN network) or manipulated through interference.
