    (as of April 2023)


    SDE GmbH appreciates your visit to our website and your interest in our company and our consulting and other services.
    The protection of your personal data during processing in all our business processes is important to us and we also want you to feel secure when visiting our website.


    According to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), §13 Abs. 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and national data protection regulations, SDE GmbH shall inform its customers and interested parties as well as all other visitors of our website in a readable and generally understandable form about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data on this website and at SDE and about the rights to which they are entitled..


    Many of the terms used here, in particular personal data, data subject, controler, processor, processing, restriction of processing, profiling, pseudonymization, filing system, recipients, third parties, consent and supervisory authority are explained in Article 1 Chapter 4 of the GDPR and can be looked up there


    In the following we would like to explain to you which information SDE GmbH collects on its web pages during your visit and how these are used.

    Personal Data

    Personal data are basically direct or indirect information that alone or in combination lead to your identity. This includes, for example, information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, account data, credit card data, but also fingerprints, photos, etc. ...


    Collection of Personal Data

    The internet presence of SDE GmbH is intentionally designed in such a way that you can use our website without providing any personal data on your part. SDE GmbH has also implemented various technical and organisational measures to ensure that all data processed by us is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
    For this reason, you are free not to transmit personal data to us via the e-mail links provided on our pages, but by alternative means - such as by telephone, for example.

    On our website, we have deliberately refrainded from collecting personal and other data through forms, so-called cookies, tracking by companies such as Google Analytics or social media sites as well as through affiliate links. The compliance with the current legal provisions from EU and national law, ie the GDPR, the BDSG new and the TMG is a matter of course for us.


    Purpose-bound Processing of Personal Data at SDE GmbH

    If you provide us with personal data, we assume that you are legaly entitled to do so.
    The processing of this data is then based on a contract concluded with you, on your and our legitimate interest in or on your voluntary consent to the processing of your requests for information and other tasks.


    There is no conscious transfer of personal data to so-called "unsecure third countries". SDE GmbH only uses its own data center in Germany, which greatly reduces the need to share data.


    Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or otherwise transmitted to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or for the execution of a service, e.g. as part of order processing, or unless you have given your express consent. In addition, personal data will only be processed and transmitted to government institutions and authorities entitled to receive information within the framework of the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision.


    An automated decision making (e.g. due to profiling or scoring) does not take place with us.

    Technical data collected automatically when you visit this website

    When using our websites, data is automatically collected in log files ("server log files") and via search engines, which your web browser / provider transmits to us. When you visit our websites, our web servers temporarily store the following information as standard:


    If we evaluate this technical data, this is done anonymously and for the protection of our legitimate interests, e.g. to guarantee a smooth connection establishment of the website, to guarantee a proper display and comfortable use of our website, to evaluate the system security and stability as well as for further administrative purposes.


    These data are not combined with other data sources. However, we reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of any concrete indications of illegal use.
    These data are deleted automatically from our servers according to the legal time deadlines..

    Classical analysis programs and other techniques for evaluating your usage behaviour are not used on our website.

    Storage Period and Deletion of Personal Data

    The storage period for your personal data depends on the intended use and the applicable legal retention or deletion periods. In general, they are only stored for the duration of your business relationship with SDE GmbH. This does not apply to data that we have to archive in accordance with the legally prescribed deadlines in accordance with the tax law's obligations to store data in an access-protected manner.


    If your data is no longer required for the aforementioned purposes, it will be deleted. Please note that with each deletion, the data is initially only blocked and then finally deleted with a time delay in order to prevent accidental deletions or possible deliberate damage.

    For technical reasons, data may be duplicated in backup files. Such copies may also be deleted with a technical delay.


    Cookies are small text files that are sent to your browser by a web server and stored on your computer for the duration of your visit or a specified period of time.
    The SDE GmbH website does not store any cookies.

    Children and Adolescents

    Persons under the age of 16 should only transmit their personal data on the Internet with the consent of their parents or legal guardians. SDE GmbH does not request or collect personal data from children or young people and certainly does not pass it on to third parties.

    Security of Information

    SDE GmbH has taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access and to protect confidentiality, availability and (data) integrity, e.g. by encrypted storage. Our security measures are continuously adapted in line with technological developments.

    All employees and all persons involved in data processing (including service providers commissioned by SDE GmbH) are obliged by SDE GmbH to maintain confidentiality, to observe data protection regulations and to handle personal data with care.

    Please note that if you contact SDE GmbH by e-mail, the confidentiality of the transmitted information cannot be guaranteed "end-to-end" by encryption, this is partly due to the (technical) nature of the e-mail transmission on the Internet. We therefore recommend that you send confidential information by letter post.

    Your Rights as a Data Subject

    As the person concerned, authorised or entitled, you have the option of asserting the following rights against SDE GmbH at any time in writing, by fax or by e-mail, provided this is not contrary to contractual or statutory provisions or processing is necessary for other reasons (e.g. due to the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims).
    Please use for the assertion of all following rights the contact data provided below

    Right to Information

    You can obtain information about your personal data stored by SDE GmbH at any time and free of charge. Please send us requests for information only in writing (by e-mail or letter post). No information is given by telephone for data protection reasons and for lack of qualified identification possibilities.

    Right to Rectification

    If we process your personal data directly and you discover incorrect information or a need for updating, you are welcome to inform us. Please enclose proof of your application (e.g. in the case of name changes by marriage: a copy of the marriage / civil status certificate, if necessary further supplementary declarations).

    Right to Erasure

    You have the right to request the deletion of your personal data at any time. Please note that we are legally obliged to store certain data in accordance with the statutory retention obligations (e.g. from commercial and tax law). In the event of a deletion request, we will of course inform you of the data categories concerned.

    Right to Restriction of Processing

    You can request at any time to restrict the processing of your personal data.

    Right to Data Portability

    As we do not normally receive any personal data via our websites, we cannot offer you a classic data export function. However, we will examine your request for legal requirements and technical feasibility and contact you within the specified deadlines for response.

    Right to Object

    You can object to the processing of your personal data by us at any time or revoke your consent with effect for the future.

    Right of Appeal to the Supervisory Authorities

    You have the right to file a complaint with your responsible data protection supervisory authority. You can find the address on the website of the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information in Berlin.

    Links to Other Websites

    If you use links to external websites which are offered within the scope of our website, this data protection declaration does not extend to these external websites!
    This applies in particular to the link to our business page on Facebook.


    At the time the links were created, we were satisfied that the linked website(s) were correct in terms of content and security. However, we have no influence on further compliance with the data protection and security regulations of other providers.


    Links to external websites that are displayed on our websites may collect user data when you click on them or otherwise follow their instructions (pay particular attention to active "social media buttons").
    We have no control over the data that is collected voluntarily or involuntarily via advertisements or websites of third parties. For this reason, please also inform yourself on their websites about the data protection declarations for your security provided there.

    If you become aware of an "unsafe" link from our website, please inform us immediately so that we can investigate the matter.

    Changes to our Privacy Policy

    SDE GmbH reserves the right to adapt the security and data protection measures if this becomes necessary due to the legal or threat situation or technical development. In these cases, this data protection declaration will also be adapted.
    So please note the date of the last update at the beginning of this statement.
