  25. For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. TLS is also used for communication between all service components.

  26. Data encryption (Encryption-at-rest)

  27. As a data storage the azure SQL Database service with Transparent Data Encryption (TDE)  is used. The TDE encrypts the entire database using an AES encryption algorithm (details see here).
