But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.

The SSL procedure is currently the most common and most secure data transmission procedure on the Internet.

How does the SSL procedure work?

SSL is always used when you see a small (mostly green) lock on your screen in the status bar of your browser on the bottom left.

However, we have no influence on whether the third party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
