According to the Data Protection Basic Regulation (GDPR), as a website operator you must transmit personal data in encrypted form. Personal data is, for example, data that the visitor to your website enters into a contact form. As soon as you integrate a contact form on your pages, you must use SSL encryption.
In shop systems, further data is collected, here it should be taken for granted that e.g. payment details are not transmitted unprotected.
We recommend that our customers always use SSL encryption, as Google has already highlighted encryption as a ranking factor in August 2016.
By using an SSL certificate you protect the data of your customers and can be found even better at Google.
