We welcome your interest in our website. The protection of your personal privacy is one of our highest priorities. In the following we will provide you with detailed information on how we handle your data.

Collection, processing and use of personal data

Data encryption

One of our highest priorities at Mientus is the protection of personal data. Michael Mientus GmbH is committed to always to handling your personal data in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law, in particular of the Federal German Data Protection Act and the Federal German Broadcast Media Act.

Thanks to modern SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology, your personal data from the order form, such as name, address etc. can be stored safely on our secure server.

SSL encryption is one of the safest and most modern processes anywhere on the Web and therefore meets the highest security requirements, such as in the case of online banking.

SSL offers triple protection:

  1. Your data is transferred in an encrypted form.
  2. The form can only be returned to the server it was opened from.
  3. Checks are carried out to ensure that the data reaches the recipient complete and without alteration.

Your data is therefore kept secure from access by outsiders. This is how you can be sure that your data is safe with us:

  1. with the locked key symbol in the browser bar
  2. with the additional "s" (for secure) at the start of the URL (address) in https://

With SSL our website offers the best possible protection from all types of access to your personal data. Click on the certificate logo, to see the validity of the security certificate for yourself.
