Elblox AG does not assume liability for any direct or indirect damages resulting from data transmission between website visitors and elblox AG.

However, elblox AG has implemented security measures to protect data against unauthorised access and to ensure the authenticity of the website, data integrity, and the confidentiality of data transmitted over our private network (Intranet).

Access to personal data is restricted to those employees who require such information. They are under an obligation to respect the confidentiality of personal data.
