These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not combined with other data sources.

8. SSL encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from ""http: //"" to ""https: //"" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
