4. Protection of stored Data

Our company uses technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data you provide to us from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. The security measures are continuously improved and adapted according to the state of the art. Unencrypted data can possibly be viewed by third parties. For this reason, we would like to point out that no secure transmission can be guaranteed with regard to data transmission via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by unencrypted e-mail). Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted at all or only via a secure connection (SSL). You can determine the SSL status of the connection by looking at the address line of your browser ("https").
