Complete protection of data against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible. However, our website uses the SSL/TLS encryption method with optimal security settings. You can recognise 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 address bar. If SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data being transmitted is particularly protected while being transferred.

If this is required or necessary, this is done within the framework of order processing.
