Your data (identification and contact data) is exclusively used for contacting, processing, and answering your query.

The legal basis for processing is based on our legitimate interest in responding to your query or complaint according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

External Links (Plug-Ins)

Our online offer may contain links to third-party websites (e.g., LinkedIn, Xing, X), which are not affiliated with us. After clicking on the link, we no longer have any influence on the collection, processing, and use of any personal data transmitted by clicking on the link to the third party (such as the IP address or the URL of the page on which the link is located), as third parties’ behavior is naturally beyond our control. We assume no responsibility for the processing of such personal data by third parties.

If you activate or click on a link to a third-party offer, it is possible that personal data may be transferred to providers in countries outside the European Economic Area that, from the perspective of the European Union (“EU”), do not provide an “adequate level of protection” for the processing of personal data in accordance with EU standards.

Data Transfer

Within Debitos GmbH, only those departments that need your personal data to fulfill our contractual or legal obligations or to protect our legitimate interests will have access to your information.

We respect the protection of your personal data and only disclose information about you when legal provisions mandate it, you have consented, or to fulfill contractual obligations.

For the following recipients, a legal obligation to disclose your personal data might arise:

  • Public bodies or supervisory authorities, e.g., tax authorities, customs authorities;
  • Judicial and law enforcement authorities, e.g., police, courts, public prosecutor’s offices;
  • Lawyers or notaries, e.g., in legal disputes;
  • Auditors

To fulfill our contractual obligations, we cooperate with other companies. This includes:

  • Transport service providers and freight forwarders;
  • Organizers and training service providers, if you have registered through us for certain fairs or events;
  • Banks and financial service providers to handle all financial matters

To ensure that the same data protection standards are maintained with the service providers as in our company, we have concluded appropriate contracts for order processing. These contracts regulate, among other things:

  • that third parties only have access to the data they need to perform the tasks assigned to them;
  • that only employees of the service providers who have explicitly committed to complying with data protection regulations have access to your data;
  • that technical and organizational measures are maintained with the service providers, which ensure data security and data protection;
  • what happens to the data when the business relationship between the service provider and us ends.

Service providers located outside the European Economic Area (EEA) require us to take special security measures (e.g., by using specific contractual clauses) to ensure that the data is handled with the same level of care as within the EEA. We regularly review all our service providers to ensure they meet our requirements.

Very importantly: We never sell your personal data to third parties!
