Plug-ins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, are integrated in our pages. You can recognize the Facebook plug-ins from the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our site. A summary of the Facebook plug-ins is available here:  http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

SSL encryption


We use SSL encryption to protect your personal data from access by third parties. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a protocol for encrypting messages on the Internet that provides an especially high level of security during data transfer. If personal data is collected at _baseurl, data transmission is encrypted using the SSL process. We use a 128-bit key for encryption. However, certain computer and Internet configurations (such as browser settings, provider, firewalls, etc.) can block access to the SSL server. For this reason we provide you with unencrypted access. Please use this one only if SSL access does not work! If you choose unencrypted transmission, this is at your own risk.
