Since 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in force. The aim of the European Union is to regulate the processing of personal data by private companies and public bodies throughout the EU.
As a customer of dpa-infocom GmbH you will receive content and ready-to-publish products from us. These are produced in different units of dpa-infocom. We would like to provide you with bundled information on this subject and our services. All the following information therefore refers to these products:
- dpa-Weblines including the web graphics and other add-ons
The most important thing first: When using dpa-infocom products, no personal data will be processed in accordance with DSGVO. Therefore, according to our current assessment, you do not need an agreement on commissioned data processing (ODP) with dpa GmbH or dpa-infocom GmbH for the use of the products mentioned.
2. ways of supplying customers
We rely on FTP/SFTP, hosting and API access scenarios for our content distribution:
All dpa-infocom products delivered via FTP/SFTP with the Push and Pull methods do not contain any tracking codes. Even if articles or data are published automatically, we cannot collect any usage information as a result.
Hosting of embeds / API accesses
For all embed and API solutions, we rely on DSGVO-compliant service providers with whom we have concluded order processing contracts (AV). The service providers are thus obliged to take a number of security measures, train their employees, etc. Currently, we mainly use solutions from Amazon Web Services.
Our service providers store personal data, so-called IP addresses, in access protocols for a short period of time in order to ensure the operation of their systems - for example, to detect malfunctions and to fend off troublemakers. All these systems are located within the EU. In some cases, we process these access logs further - in this case, the IP addresses are deleted as the first processing step, so that no personal data are available in the further course of the process.
3. no collection of personal data
In principle, the following applies: dpa-infocom does not collect any personal data about the use and users when providing the products mentioned. If we use tracking procedures for information on the usability of web applications and user interest, we do not collect any personal data. Individuals cannot be tracked.
