If you no longer agree to your personal information being stored or if this information is no longer correct, we shall arrange to delete or block your data or make the necessary corrections (provided this is possible in accordance with applicable legislation) following an instruction to this effect.

4. Information regarding data security

Generally, the Internet is an insecure medium. Compared with a telephone line, for example, the transfer of data via the Internet can be heard, recorded or even changed more easily by an unauthorised third party. Consequently, sending information by e-mail or via the contact form should essentially be described as insecure.

In order to guarantee the confidentiality of communication with you in the context of online applications, we use an SSL encryption.

EMSA GmbH uses technical and organisational security measures in order to protect the data you have made available against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our safety measures are reviewed on an on-going basis in accordance with technological development.

Cookies are used in some areas of the website in order to be able to provide a more individual service to you. Cookies are pieces of identifying information, which a web server can send to your computer in order to identify it for the duration of the visit. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the saving of cookies or adjust your browser settings so that it informs you about the placement of cookies.
