For administration and editing, function identifiers and personal identifiers are created with access protection mechanisms and changes made with these identifiers are logged.

  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (for example, file transferred, file not found)

Information sent over the Internet without encryption can be viewed by others during transmission. This applies to e-mails, but also when visiting websites. The web contents of the THD are therefore transmitted encrypted via HTTPS.
