4. How is personal data transmitted in the case of electronic offers?
The Halle (Saale) Administrative Authority provides forms and electronic services. Data entered concerning your person is always transmitted in encrypted form. The type of encryption, the data collected and the purpose of storage will be pointed out in the electronic application’s context.
Encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorised persons to spy on transmitted data. For this reason it is highly unlikely that anyone will be able to read such data transmitted via the internet. However, we would still like to point out that data transmission via the internet may still have security risks. For this reason it is advisable to use other forms of communication if matters are of special confidentiality.
5. What about personal data when sending emails?
Emails are swift and simple to use but not secure. The subject matter can be read or tampered with by unauthorised persons without the sender realising. For this reason for your own safety it is better to refrain from sending confidential information via the internet in such an open manner.
We recommend that confidential information is sent by customary methods (mail, fax, telephone) only.
At the moment the Halle (Saale) Administrative Authority does not have a “virtual post office” available, which means it is not possible to send or receive encrypted emails and documents with qualified electronic signatures.
