In such cases, a separate agreement is being drafted, in order to ensure your privacy. This so-called ‘processing agreement’ establishes the goal of the data processing, the confidentiality and the security of the data. This applies, for instance, to our website partner, who ensures the technical management of our website and therefore has access to data being collected through our site – for example to manage the newsletter.
