This website may contain hyperlinks to other websites that are not operated or monitored by SCG. These other websites are not subject to this Policy and we are not responsible for their content or for the policy they apply to the treatment of personal data. We recommend that you read the policy used by these websites and check how these websites protect your personal data. This Policy may be updated at any time. All changes are announced here. Please ensure that you regularly read the newest version of this page. The first paragraph of the Policy tells you when the last update was made.
Security of Data Transfer
Please note that data is transported over an open network, the Internet, which is accessible to all. Data may thus be transmitted abroad regularly and without controls, even if both sender and recipient are located in the United States. While the individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. It is also possible that your data may be forwarded to a country that does not afford such a high level of data protection as your country of domicile.
For certain services, we guarantee highly encrypted transfer of your data. In these cases you will be told separately about the treatment of this data and about the details of encryption. We do not accept any liability for losses or consequent losses as regards the security of your data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary for security reasons.

Where local laws allow, we reserve the right to use this personal data for the purpose of marketing products and services if we feel that these products and services may be of interest to you. We use our website cookie technology to estimate aggregate visitor numbers and aggregate data transfer volumes, to identify pages that attract particular interest, and to make general improvements.

We have taken the appropriate technical and organizational precautions to ensure that only authorized persons can access these servers, and have taken particular precautions with regard to the protection of our technical environment (e.g. using Firewalls).
