SECURITY MEASURES


SCX takes appropriate technical and organisational security measures to ensure that personal data collected and stored in connection with your visit to our Site is protected against unauthorised access, misuse, loss and/or destruction. SCX takes both physical and electronic process-specific security measures, including firewalls, personal passwords, and encryption and authentication technologies. Our employees and service providers commissioned by us are bound by professional secrecy and must comply with all data protection provisions. Additionally, access to personal data is restricted to only those employees, contractors and third parties who require this access in order to assure the purpose of data processing and the provision of Services (need to know principle). Nevertheless, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that data transmitted via an open network like the Internet cannot be fully protected from third-party access. This may result in such data being disclosed or altered in content, or lead to technical errors in its transmission. In particular, data sent via the Internet (e.g. via a contact form on the website or an e-mail service) may leave the country – even where both sender and recipient are in the same country – and may be transmitted to and potentially stored in a third-party country in which data protection requirements may be laxer than in your country of residence. Where data is transmitted to SCX via the Internet, we cannot be held responsible for the protection of this data. We recommend avoiding the transmission of any strictly confidential information via open networks.
