data privacy


Data protection is our top priority

For DEFACTO X, protecting personal data and sensitive information is a high priority issue. Just meeting the legal requirements for data protection is not enough. In all aspects of handling personally identifiable data, webtracking, newsletters or CRM, data protection is our first priority. In order for all of our employees to adhere to these privacy policies, workshops are held related to specific topics such as the secure use of all mobile devices, as well as regular training sessions.

External supervision ensures a high standard

Our high level of data protection is achieved through a constant application of expert advice and critical controls. This is why DEFACTO X relies on an external certified data protection officer. Our compliance with laws on data protection and privacy are thus checked neutrally and without organisational blindness. Beyond the legal requirements, an information security management system has also been established which illuminates all aspects of information handling and documents the technical and organisational measures taken.

Certified security

Our implementation of technical measures and management systems for ensuring high safety standards has been certified according to the international standard ISO/IEC 27001. A continuous review of all important processes has led to a consistently high level of information security, which in turn forms the basis for technical data protection of all systems used. This high level of quality is confirmed through regular audits from external parties, which are repeatedly carried out on behalf of our partners and customers and contribute to continuous improvement.
