Web page encryption using HTTPs
This website uses https to transmit data over the Internet in a secure manner (data protection through technology design, Article 25 (1), DSGVO). The use of TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, ensures the protection of confidential data. You can check for the use of this data transmission security by looking for the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https scheme (as opposed to http) which forms the first part of the website's address.
Cookies are small files that your browser automatically creates. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. In this way, your browser will be recognised the next time you visit the site. If you want to find out which cookies have been saved on your browser, or you want to change your cookie settings or delete cookies, you can find this in your browser settings. If you do not generally allow cookies to be used, for example, if you deactivate them in your browser settings, some functions and pages may not function as expected.
I have deactivated the Squarespace (content management system) analytics module which records the use of my website statistically, because of the unclear legal situation of this website.
