Data protection and discretion

Maximum protection of your data at Edelmetalle direkt

Many companies currently transfer their information technology - and thus also their customer data - to commercial companies. This is also referred to as the so-called 'cloud computing'. However, in our view, you pay for the advantages like cost savings, compensation of lacking knowhow etc. with serious security risks.

Edelmetalle direkt therefore goes exactly the opposite way: we run our information technology completely autonomously. The complete programs and your customer data are saved on our own computers, which are located at our own specially secured premises and to which only we have access. Exception: the shop software, which is run in a large German datacentre due to the clearly better performance.

For this purpose, also read our data protection directive.

Globalsign SSL certificate for secure data transmission

Safe data transmission with Global Sign

We use the established standard for data encoding SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for saving the communication of your computer with our shop and prove this by our certificate of GlobalSign. The SSL certificate confirms that data can be shared in the internet from your computer to ours and vice versa without any abuse.



Discrete packaging of your delivery for your personal safety


Beside the measures stated above to protect your data at Edelmetalle direkt, it is very important to us that your environment (e.g. neighbours, colleagues, ...) does not get any clues that you have precious metals delivered. Therefore, we pack your offer completely neutral and inobtrusive. Additionally, we relinquish any external advertising that could indicate the content of the packet.
