7.       Data security

We undertake to protect your privacy and to treat your personal data confidentially. In order to prevent the manipulation, loss or misuse of your data stored with us, we take comprehensive technical and organisational security measures, which are regularly checked and adapted to technological progress. This includes the use of recognised encryption procedures (SSL or TLS). However, we would like to point out that, due to the structure of the Internet, the rules on data protection and the security measures mentioned above may not be respected by other persons or institutions outside our area of competence. In particular, unencrypted published data - e.g. if this is done by e-mail - are also read by third parties. We have no technical influence over this. It is the responsibility of the user to protect the data made available to him by means of encryption or in any other way against incorrect use.
