Information you transmit to us in unencrypted format via e-mail could possibly be accessed by third parties during transfer. We are generally unable to verify your identity and do not know the person behind an e-mail address. Therefore, it is not possible to guarantee legally secure communication via e-mail. Similarly to many e-mail providers, we use filters to remove unwanted advertising (SPAM filters) which, in rare cases, may also mistakenly identify normal e-mails as unwanted advertising and delete them accordingly. E-mails containing harmful programs (“viruses”?) are always deleted automatically.
If you wish to send us any information that requires protection, we recommend that you encrypt and sign this information to prevent unauthorised access and corruption during transmission or that you send the information using conventional post. Encrypted e-mails can be sent to us as follows:
