Data security and privacy
We, mdk.digital GmbH, welcome you to this website.
As the operator of these pages, we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We therefore treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. If you wish to make use of our services, it is necessary to provide certain personal data. The use of our website, on the other hand, is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as we collect personal data (for example, name, address or e-mail addresses), this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. If this information is required in order to use our services, we will inform you of this (details can be found here).
We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the applicable data protection laws, and thus in particular in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
With this data protection declaration, we inform you as a data subject in particular about the rights to which you are entitled. In addition, we have implemented extensive technical and organizational measures within the framework of our responsibility for processing in order to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

This may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contract data, contact data, names, website accesses and other data generated via a website.
The hoster is used for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) and in the interest of a secure and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). In order to ensure data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded an order processing contract pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO with our hoster.
Our hoster will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfill its service obligations and follow our instructions regarding this data.
We use the following hoster for this website: SiteGround Spain S.L., Calle de Prim 19, 28004 Madrid, Spain / EU.
a) Server Log Files
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and other similar data and information used to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
This data is processed in particular for the following purposes:
Ensuring that the website connection is established without any problems
Ensuring the smooth use of our website,
evaluating system security and stability, and
to optimize our website.
This data is not used to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated anonymously by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
We also reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are placed on a computer system via an Internet browser and stored by the browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Insofar as cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the framework of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.
c) Registration on our website
As a data subject, you have the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to the controller in the process is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may -if justified- arrange for the transfer to one or more processors who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date as well as the time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the data controller. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.
The controller shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information about what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations.
d) Contact option via the website
Based on statutory provisions, our website contains data that enable a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general e-mail address. If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. No disclosure of this personal data to third parties will take place.
e) SSL encryption
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Data protection in connection with applications and the application process
mdk.digital GmbH collects and processes the personal data of applicants (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.) for the purpose of handling the application process on the basis of Art. 13 (1) c) DSGVO of Section 26 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 DSGVO. This is based on the legal relationship that arises in the application or initiation phase of the employment contract relationship.
The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website.
If mdk.digital GmbH concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the duration of the application procedure for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions (Art. 13 para. 2 a) DSGVO). If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant on the part of mdk.digital GmbH, the application process ends six months after the rejection letter is sent with the deletion of your application documents, if no other legitimate interests of mdk.digital GmbH oppose deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
If we intend to store the documents you send us beyond the duration of the application process, e.g. because your application may be considered for a further job advertisement, we will obtain your express consent to do so.
We will not pass on your personal data to third parties unless this is necessary to fulfill legal obligations.
Under certain circumstances, your data may be passed on to persons who are obliged to maintain special confidentiality, such as lawyers.
In the context of the application process described here, you have the right to information from the controller about the personal data concerning you, as well as the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, as well as the right to object to processing and the right to portability of your personal data(Art. 13(2)(b) and (c) DSGVO).
If you have given us your consent to the processing of personal data concerning you for one or more specific purposes, you may withdraw this consent at any time.
The right to revoke your consent to data processing does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing carried out until your revocation.
In this context, your right to have the data deleted will regularly be opposed by our legitimate interest in asserting, exercising or defending legal claims, which makes it necessary to store and retain data.
Likewise, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority about our data processing of your personal data if, in your view, there is a violation of the law (Article 13 (2) d) DSGVO).
A legal and/or contractual necessity to provide the data results from Art. 13 para. 2 e) DSGVO. Without the provision of your personal data, no processing of your application can take place.
Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. In particular, we rely on this legal basis for the processing of data in the area of direct marketing.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) b) DSGVO. We rely in particular on this legal basis for our main activity, namely the comprehensive support of customers around software and system integration services and our related full service. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) c) DSGVO.
For applicant management, the legal basis results from Art. 13 (1) c) DSGVO as well as § 26 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 DSGVO.
For the cooperation with partner and subsidiary companies, the legal basis results from Art. 28 DSGVO.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured in our company and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 (1) d) DSGVO.In addition, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO.
Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DSGVO).
mdk.digital GmbH has a legitimate interest in ensuring IT security as well as the security of its property and in asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders / investors. Furthermore, mdk.digital GmbH has a legitimate interest in anonymizing customer data for the purpose of compiling statistics in order to analyze and optimize its activities and also to share such statistics with third parties.
Duration of the storage of personal data
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is based on the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law). After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for contract fulfillment or contract initiation.
In addition, mdk.digital GmbH processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or insofar as this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Rights of the data subject to information, correction, deletion, blocking, objection, etc.
a) Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to obtain confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.
b) Right of access
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Maker, to obtain from the controller, at any time and free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. In addition, the European Directive and Regulation Legislator has granted the data subject access to the following information:
- the purposes of processing
- the categories of personal data processed
- the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organizations
- if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration
- the existence of a right to obtain the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning him or her, or to obtain the restriction of processing by the controller, or a right to object to such processing
- the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority

- the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organization. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information about the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
c) Right to rectification
Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to request the immediate rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration – taking into account the purposes of the processing.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectify, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following grounds applies and insofar as the processing is no longer necessary:
- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
- The data subject withdraws his or her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO or Art. 9 (2) a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.
- The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
- The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8 (1) of the GDPR.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange for the erasure of personal data stored by us, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller. Our data protection officer or another employee will arrange for the erasure request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data have been made public by our company and our company as the controller is obliged to erase the personal data pursuant to Article 17 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation, we shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, to ensure that other data controllers processing the published personal data are informed, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers the erasure of all links to the personal data or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. Our data protection officer or another employee will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation-maker, to request the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by us, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller. Our data protection officer or another employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (2) a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by us or another employee.
g) Right to object
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Maker, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) or f) DSGVO. If you have given us consent, you can also revoke this at any time with effect for the future.
We will no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If we process personal data for the purposes of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data for such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to us to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact our data protection officer or another employee. The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European Directive and Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.
If the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or if it is made with the data subject’s explicit consent, we shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject’s involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.
i) Right to lodge a complaint
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data also has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in relation to our processing of your personal data if you consider that there has been a breach of the law.
A list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with address can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Recipients of personal data / transfer to third countries
Pursuant to Art. 4 No. 9 DSGVO, the only recipients of collected personal data are the company and, in individual cases, any authorized recipients such as public authorities or partner companies or suppliers (such as network operators).
A transfer of personal data to a third country does not take place – except for the data mentioned in the following under point 12 “Google Analytics” and point 13 “Social Media”.
Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data, the data subject may contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
Subscription to our newsletter
On the website, users may be given the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the controller when the newsletter is ordered is specified in the input mask used for this purpose. We inform customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The newsletter can basically only be received by the data subject, if
the data subject has a valid e-mail address and
the data subject has registered for the newsletter mailing.
For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail is sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail serves to verify whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject’s e-mail address at a later point in time and therefore serves as a legal safeguard for the controller.
The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter are used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter mailing can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on the website of the controller at any time or to notify the controller of this in another way.

Microsoft Germany combines Microsoft 365 Productivity Services with a model in which your data is stored exclusively in German data centers and data access is controlled by a German data trustee. Customer data is stored in two German data centers in Frankfurt and near Magdeburg. Replication between the two data centers ensures that customer data remains in Germany. This also applies to data backup, business continuity and disaster recovery. Your customer data is encrypted both in our data centers and during transmission.
