Privacy of your data


  • Digital security systems ensure the encrypted transmission of your personal data. Furthermore, technical measures protect our website against damages, destruction or unauthorized access.

    SSL technology
    A safe SSL connection (Secure Socket Layer) provides for the safe transmission of your personal data, including credit and account information. The encrypted data is only deciphered when used by the payment system.

    3-D-Secure process
    3-D Secure was developed for Visa and Mastercard transactions to safeguard that the lawful holder of a credit card and the lawful online trader participate in the respective transaction. If a credit card holder registers to the 3-D-Secure process by using one of the registration methods, an additional query mask will open up after the credit data have been entered. This query mask is linked with your bank and requires the entry of the SecureCode (a password you selected). Transactions can only be made by entering the correct password. Your bank will inform you about whether your credit card is registered for this process.
