SSL-Data Encryption

SSL means Secure Socket Layer and is an encryption method which has been used in the World Wide Web since a long time. It encrypts the whole data flow between the customer's browser and the server so that no one has the chance to steal the data.

Why do I need SSL?

We use SSL method for the ordering process. This gives you the safety that your personal data (e.g. your address or your credit card data) are safe. The encryption is automatically activated and the websites will be SSL secured.  

What can I do if SSL does not work?

It can happen that SSL cannot be used in your environment, e.g. because your firewall does not support SSL. In this case you normally get a notice about this problem. If this happens please contact your admin.
