Are email transmissions secure?

If you communicate with us by e-mail (or form), the data transmission is not encrypted. The same applies when we send you our response by e-mail. In these cases, confidentiality is not guaranteed. E-mails are forwarded - basically quickly, reliably and inexpensively - via many computers. The possibilities for saving, analysing or changing messages are therefore manifold. E-mails in unencrypted form are not suitable for sending confidential information to AP Dialog GmbH.
