Protect the data of your customers with our SSL certificates now
The answer is very simple: As soon as you request data from your website visitors and this data is transferred to your web server via a form, this data must be encrypted. For example, if you use a contact form on your website, you must use the https protocol to encrypt the data. But also when entering e-mail addresses in the course of a newsletter registration, these data must be encrypted via SSL.
In principle, SSL encryption has been mandatory for the transmission of data under the German Telemedia Act since 1 January 2016. Due to the somewhat vague wording of the law (state of the art, recognized encryption method), only a few companies implemented this requirement. However, since 25.5.2018 a clear regulation has been in force that prescribes the use of SSL certificates. Fines of 20 million Euros or up to 4% of the worldwide annual turnover are threatened in the event of administrative offences. With us you receive SSL certificates already starting from 1.99 euro.

Whether a website has an SSL certificate or not is very easy to determine. And users can also easily find out what SSL status a page has. The following signs indicate an SSL certificate:
