10. Data security
Our website uses the encryption and communication protocol TLS 1.3 (Transport Layer Security). The TLS certificate we use, which is issued by a certification authority, enables us to exchange encrypted data between the web browser and the web server, which means that sensitive data cannot be read by third parties. We use the procedure with the highest encryption level that your browser supports, which is usually 256-bit encryption. The higher the number of bits, the longer the key and the better the protection against third parties.
