Data protection on the DEKRA website

DEKRA respects your privacy

In addition to the security of all business data, the protection of your privacy when personal data is processed is also an important concern for us, which we take fully into consideration in our business processes. It is also important to us that you are at all times aware of when we store data and how we use this data.

Data protection

We regard the protection of your personal data - such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address - and the responsible use of the information you entrust to us as especially important. This also includes data that accumulates in the background when you use the Internet.

If you are asked to give your personal details on individual web sites you will be informed of the intended purpose and, if necessary, you will be asked to give your consent.

Applicable law

DEKRA guarantees that your details will be treated confidentially in accordance with the applicable German data protection provisions.
