Your personal data, such as your name or address, is converted into a code for encryption by the security server software. This ensures that this data cannot be accessed by unauthorised parties during online transmission. Most newer browsers already support this secure transmission technology.
All employees of Warsteiner Welt and their agents are obligated to maintain data secrecy, if they handle personal data.
