If you wish to make use of your right of revocation or objection, an email to me at email@example.com is sufficient.
7. Data security
I use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of my website is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed representation of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
I also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. My security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
