Each time you visit a web page data are generated. In the simplest case, already then when your browser calls up a website. In order to be able to display it, the browser must request the website over the internet from the server, on which it is stored. For this to happen, information about your visit is disclosed, so that the server can answer this request correctly and you get a representation of the visited website on your browser.
Information is thus left on the Internet, some necessarily and unavoidable, due to technical reasons. For example, on all routing-machines on which the request of your browser passes until the server is reached. And then also on the way back from the server response to your browser. Regardless of whether the actual information is encrypted or not, it is possible that third parties may intercept this information and even modifiy it, possibly. Against this, there is no absolute protection. We just want to bring this to your attention, because that is exactly what one tends to forget. The transmission link is a security risk.
We try to protect this transmission link, as we encrypt data transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer).
When you visit our websites, we and, where appropriate, third parties, may collect data about this visit.
