7. Data security

We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method, the most common one, in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. It will ordinarily be a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can see if a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form, when the padlock of the padlock icon in the bottom status bar of your browser is locked. We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
