4    Protection of stored data


Our company and ICON Vernetzte Kommunikation GmbH use technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data provided by you from manipulation, loss, destruction or from being accessed by unauthorized persons.

For this reason, we would like to point out that, with regard to data transmission over the Internet (e.g., by e-mail), secure transfer cannot be guaranteed. Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted at all or only via a secure connection (SSL). If you access pages and files and are then asked to enter personal data, please note that the transmission of such data via the Internet may not be secure and that there is a risk that it may be viewed and manipulated by unauthorized persons.
