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.
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.

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.
