Data is encrypted for transfer when the in the address bar of your browser programme the URL starts with "https://" instead of "http://" and a lock symbol is displayed in front of the URL. Informations that were encrypted with SSL may not be read by third parties on the way.

For operating this site we rent a server from this hosting service provider:
