Data security on the Internet
The Internet was created at a time when data protection hardly played a role. The storage and processing of data was expensive and time-consuming, the network was slow, the applications were mostly academic in nature and there were only a few participants. The data transmitted and made available was therefore hardly protected from being read, stolen or manipulated.
Today, large volumes of data can be stored and transported easily, cheaply and quickly, and billions of people use the Internet. The protection of personal data in particular and all data in general plays an important role. To ensure this protection, we use modern encryption and signature methods.
Our website uses a TLS certificate, and you are welcome to communicate with us S/MIME-encrypted and -signed by e-mail. Please make sure that your IT infrastructure is up to date to enable secure encryption.
You are also welcome to send us confidential information by mail.
