8. Data security
To secure our website we are using the common SSL (secure socket layer) method in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser when you visite our website.

In addition we also use suitable technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

Hereby we inform you that data transmission via the internet (e.g. e-mail, data transmission forms) is associated with security risks. In particular, the paths that an e-mail takes through the internet can in some cases neither be traced nor secured, so in principle it can happen that third parties can access the data or data loss, virus transmission, transmission errors, transmission failures and publication of the data may occur.

Attention is drawn to the increased risk of virus transmission with Microsoft Word attachments when sending e-mails and inquiries via the contact form.

Due to technical workflow reasons, encryption is carried out using SSL only.
