Our website uses SSL encryption when transmitting confidential or personal content of our users. This encryption is activated, for example, during the processing of payment transactions as well as for inquiries that you send to us via our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated for corresponding activities on your part.

Typical log files are the date and time of access, the amount of data, the browser used for access and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your provider, the page from which you came to our site (referrer URL) and your IP address.
