The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which entered into force on 25 May 2018, is a European Union regulation harmonising the rules across the EU for private companies and public bodies processing personal data. This is intended firstly to ensure the protection of personal data within the European Union as a whole and secondly to ensure the free movement of data within the European Union.
The new rules of the EU General Data Protection Regulation particularly provide for a high level of transparency in data processing and for extensive rights for data subjects.
We regard the protection of personal data and other privacy as a primary task of our work in order to ensure your trust and to put you at the centre of what we do. For this reason, we began early to adapt our business procedures, processes and systems to the new statutory requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation in line with the law.
Our data protection organisation is designed so that the use of your data is in line with all statutory requirements on data protection and particular attention is given to the principles of transparency, necessity of the data processed, data avoidance and data economy in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation. More information regarding the handling of your personal data is available in the following information.
