6. Technical and organizational measures

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

However, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security weaknesses. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

7. Cookies, analysis tools and plug-ins from third parties

When visiting our website, your personal data and web-surfing behavior may be statistically evaluated by third-party providers abroad. This is done primarily with cookies and with so-called analysis programs and plug-ins.

In some cases, you can counteract such data collection and processing through technical settings. Please note, however, that in this case some of the website functions can not be fully used.
