General Principles

  1. Security

Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us.

You can recognise an encrypted connection if the address line of your browser contains a “https://” instead of a “http://” and also has a lock symbol. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

We have also implemented numerous security measures (“technical and organizational measures”) for example encryption or need to know access, to ensure the most complete protection of Personal Information processed through this website.

Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. And databases or data sets that include Personal Information may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion.

Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose Personal Information may have been compromised as expeditiously as possible after which the breach was discovered.
