12. Security

We employ technical and organizational measures including two-step verification process, password and physical security measures in order to safeguard the Service against loss, theft, misuse, destruction, access, alteration or the disclosure of your data by unauthorized persons. Despite regular controls a complete protection against all dangers is, however, not possible. The access to your account is possible only after entering your personal password. You should always treat your access information confidentially.

The Federal Data Protection Act guarantees you rights to information, correction, deletion or blocking of your personal data.
