Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a security protocol that is used for locked online transmission of secret data and information.
If you visit a web page secured by SSL, your data will be only transferred without any access by a third party. To be sure that there is SSL encryption on this page, just click the right mouse clicker and read about it under the menu item "Characteristics".
Usually the SSL connections slower are than the unencrypted connections. However, because we care a lot about the confidential handling of your data, we ask you to take into consideration that short delays may occur.
