We take security and data privacy very serious. Our business model is not based on selling any of your data to any third party and we are using best in breed technology to protect your data while you are using our services. We only use your data with your consent and solely with the objective to safeguard our ability to provide you our services and to optimize our offering. A part from complying with the respective German privacy and data security laws, we also have decided to completely SSL encrypt our services in order to keep private what is meant to be private. Therefore sending a handwritten Pensaki® document can actually be regarded as being securer than sending any unencrypted email through the internet.
EV stands for “Extended Validation” and that means that getting the SSL certificate required an extensive verification process by the certificate authority (here COMODO CA Limited, UK) before the certificate was issued to Pensaki GmbH. Therefore you as a user can be sure to visit the website of Pensaki GmbH, a German company registered with the commercial registry of the Mannheim district court under the number HRB 720335, and be sure that all provided data is safely transferred. A 2048 bit signature and up to 256 encryption mean that this SSL Certificate offers the highest possible levels of security for our customers that is currently available. Our website pensaki.com has a verifiable certificate chain signed with SHA-2. Hereby we actually differentiate ourselves currently from most websites. In a recent article Eric Mill states that approx. 90% of all websites that use SSL encryption are actually using an insecure algorithm (SHA-1). Pensaki.com is using instead the state-of-the-art SHA-2 encryption algorithm for all customer transactions. This is the reason why you see this green bar in your browser. While browsing our website you are already leveraging the provided state of the art encryption technology. Obviously the same holds true for how we transform your electronic message into a prestigious handwritten document that will be exhibited by traditional post.
Why SSL encryption at all?
The primary reason why SSL is used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can understand it. Without an SSL encryption any computer between you and our servers could see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information. When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes literally unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This protects your from hackers and identity thieves.
