9. SSL and TLS encryption
This website uses SSL and TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of confidential data when transmitted, for example when sending an inquiry or opening a support ticket with us as the website operator. You can see whether an encrypted connection is in place by looking for the padlock symbol in the browser and by “https://” instead of “http://” in the address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties. Note: If you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie is also deleted and will then have to be activated again accordingly.
