DATA PROTECTION

DEKRA Media respects your privacy

The protection of your privacy in the processing of personal data as well as the security of all business data is an important concern to us, DEKRA Media, which we take into account in our business processes. In addition, it is important to us that you always know when we store which data and how we use it.

User data

In particular, the protection of personal data such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address as well as the responsible handling of the information you entrust to us are important to us. This also includes the data that is generated in the background when using the Internet. If you are requested to provide personal information on individual web pages, you will be informed of the intended processing purpose and, if necessary, asked for your consent.
Your visit to our website is also subject to data protection. By default, our web servers store the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages you visit on our website and the date and duration of your visit. By accessing the Internet pages, DEKRA Media receives usage data which is stored for security purposes. The user data is evaluated for statistical purposes. The regular evaluation of the access statistics to the web pages shows the temporal development of the visitor resonance as well as the different success of different offers on the web page. Among other things, it is the basis for controlling the further development of the website. A passing on of user data to third parties, neither for commercial nor for non-commercial purposes, does not take place.

Applicable law and legal basis

DEKRA Media processes your data in accordance with the applicable European and German data protection regulations and treats them confidentially. The legal basis for the processing and storage are Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and § 7 UWG (German Law against Unfair Competition) for advertising purposes.

According to § 7 (3) UWG the client may object to the use of his data for advertising purposes at any time without incurring any costs other than transmission costs according to basic rates.

Exercise of rights in accordance with GDPR and data protection officer
