Notes on E-mail communication
Communication per E-mail has certain disadvantages due to technical reasons. For example, unencrypted E-mail messages sent via the Internet may be read by unauthorised persons (lack of confidentiality) or even changed (lack of integrity). The sender of an E-mail may also be changed (lack of authenticity). Please note when sending E-mails to DZ BANK AG, that this form of communication does not guarantee the confidentiality or security of the message. Therefore decide very carefully which information you want to send us per E-mail.

We are currently still not able to offer you a generally recognised signature and encryption procedure to secure E-mail communication. As it is possible to change the sender of an E-mail and the contents of an E-mail message, we reserve the right, for both your safety and ours, to ask for return confirmation before we accept the content of the message as binding for us. Please do not send us any unsolicited advertising or any orders per E-mail.
