Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files stored on your computer to facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. As a rule, the information generated by the cookie regarding your use of the website is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated, Google shortens the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to, and shortened by, Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider, Google uses this information for the purpose of evaluating your website usage, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data stored by Google. You are entitled to refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser.

We explicitly inform you that in general data transfer via the internet cannot be guaranteed to be secure, and that data transferred may be seen or manipulated by unauthorised individuals if they were not subject to a safe encoding system.

Electronic post (e-mail)
Please note, data transfer via the internet is insecure, and data transferred may be seen or manipulated by unauthorised individuals if not subject to a safe encoding system. As do many other providers, we use SPAM filtres to remove unwanted advertising. Occasionally, such filtres sometimes incorrectly adjudge normal emails to be spam and automatically delete them as a consequence. E-mails that carry malignant programmes (viruses) are always deleted on detection. Hence, communication via e-mail cannot be guaranteed to be ‘legally safe and reliable’. For this reason, we advise you not to use e-mails to send confidential information to Kloster Seeon. We do not currently use an electronic encoding and signature system, so we cannot process e-mails encoded and signed using this technology at present. Please restrict documents that must be accepted in a written form to paper correspondence. This usually applies to documents requiring a signature.
