Security measures
The data we obtain are stored on specially protected servers in our security zone. Access to these servers is possible for only a few, specially authorised people who are responsible for technical, commercial or editorial management of these data.

The Internet's structure does, however, make it possible for other people or institutions for which we are not responsible to disregard data-protection regulations. In particular, it is possible for unencrypted data, for example disclosed in an e-mail, to be read by third parties. Because of the technical realities of the Internet we have no control over this. The user alone is responsible for protecting data he provides from misuse by using encryption or another method. On the Internet, e-mails are forwarded via many different servers, and there are numerous opportunities to access this information, change it, delete it, copy it, or otherwise amend it in an unauthorised manner. You also have the option of communicating with us by telephone, fax, or letter.
