3. Security measures
The HSW has implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data collected via our website against unauthorized access, misuse, loss or destruction.
However, we would like to point out that internet-based data transmission has security gaps, thus complete protection against access by third parties is rendered impossible.
