During your access or submission data might traverse other countries and adjacent companies (like internet service provider, mail server, web hoster). We have no influence based on technological and topological structure of such Internet connections.

We are not working with ad networks nor are we embedding social media buttons. All files delivered to customers are hosted on WIX servers. Under some circumstances we may embed videos from external sources if it helps to enrich the user experience. Such embedded objects always enable all available privacy features (e.g. encryption, disabling 3rd party cookies, http security header).

We are providing a Secure Transfer Server, an in-house solution to exchange data via secure channels and to prevent exposed transmission via other countries and companies. Please use additional security measures like encryption (e.g. PGP/SMIME) to increase the security of all your exchanges.
