Secure communication on the internet

The internet is generally considered to be an insecure medium. Contrary to a telephone line, for instance, transmission of data in the internet can be more easily intercepted, recorded or even changed by unauthorized third parties. To ensure the confidentiality of communication with you, we are planning to use so-called SSL encryption. According to the current standard of knowledge, the 128-bit encryption possible with this is considered secure. All browsers of the recent generation achieve this safety level. If necessary you should update your PC's browser.

 

Updating of this data protection statement

If LDG introduces new products or services or alters its internet procedures, or if the internet and electronic-data-processing security technology is further developed, the data-protection statement must be updated. We reserve the right to change or amend this statement as need may arise. The change will be published here. The current version is dated 14.11.2002.
