Data Protection

Please note that only the German Version of this document is binding!

Protecting the personal data and the private sphere of our employees and partners is of great importance to us, which means that adherence to the regulations of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) is a matter of course. The aim of this Act is to ensure that individuals are protected as far as the handling of personal data is concerned and that their personal rights are not encroached upon. In accordance with §§ 4 of the BDSG we would like to inform you briefly of our procedures.

You can, of course, raise an objection to your personal data being used as long as this is not required for the purpose of processing a contractual relationship and/or does not contravene the company’s legal obligations. Objections may be raised by submitting a letter or an e-mail to [email protected]. You will then receive confirmation as soon as this has been entered in the system.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Data Protection Officer (see point 2 below for contact details).

  • Preparing for and executing measures connected with quality assurance

11.  Fixed time periods for deletion of data

Currently the time limits for storing and deleting personal data are not always clearly regulated since in many areas legal practice calls for an alignment of the time limit. Where regulations do exist, we routinely comply with the obligation to delete data. If deletion is not possible due to technical or organisational reasons, the data are locked and cannot be processed or used.

12.  Data transfer abroad

The transfer of personal data within the EU or to other states does not take place.

13.  Security measures in accordance with §§ 9 BDSG + Appendix

We have adopted numerous measures related to the protection of personal data. A detailed presentation of these would be counter-productive as this would leave the list itself open to debate.

For this reason, legislation stipulates in accordance with the BDSG that in your interests information concerning technical and organisational individual measures will not be made available publicly.

We assure you, however, that we have adopted and are continually improving on a variety of measures which are in line with a company of our size in accordance with the following requirements of §§ 9 BDSG:

  • Access control to the site
  • Access control to computing devices
  • Access control to personal data
  • Transfer of data control
  • Inputting data control
  • Order control
  • Availability control
  • Severance instruction
