4. Security, cookies and other important information
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as billing data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. We use the highly secured data centres of Hetzner Online GmbH. The servers are based in Germany, so that your personal data will be hosted and processed by us in Germany. The data is transferred between the browser and the server via SSL.
We automatically collect and store data in log-files that are transmitted to us by your browser. These data contain: browser type, operating system, referring URL, time of server request. This data is not personal and is not merged with other data sources. We do not pass on these data to third parties, neither for commercial nor for non-commercial purposes. If we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use, we reserve the right to check this data at a later date.
