3. Principles for the processing of personal data
The processing of personal data is based on strict principles which consider the protection and security of data and the rights of the individuals to be of the highest priority.
Legality & transparency
Data processing is conducted in a fair and lawful manner. The person concerned will be informed of data collection, the processing envisaged and the handling of the data. At a minimum, the person concerned will be informed of the following points:
- Person responsible for data processing
- Purpose of data processing
- Legal basis for the processing
The data is collected and processed for predetermined, clear and legitimate purposes. The processing of the data will not occur in a manner which is not in line with these purposes.
Only data which is absolutely essential is collected and processed. If it is possible to use for achieving the objective at hand and the effort involved is reasonable, only anonymized data will be processed
Storage limits and deletion
Personal data is deleted as soon as the objective for which it was originally collected ends and as long as legal retention periods do not prevent its deletion.
If, in individual cases, legitimate interests in this data exist, it will continue to be retained until legal matters relating to the legitimate interest have been clarified.
Data secrecy applies to all personal data. The data is handled confidentially and is protected by taking appropriate organisational and technical measures against unauthorised access, unlawful manipulation or transfer, and loss and destruction.
Personal data must be retained correctly and be complete and up-to-date. Appropriate measures are taken to correct old, incorrect or incomplete data.
4. Obligation to observe data secrecy
All of Wuppermann’s employees as well as the employees of affiliated companies are contractually required to maintain confidentiality. They are advised and trained on a regular basis in how to safely handle personal data or other critical data.
5. Data security
The protection of confidentiality, availability and integrity of data is one of Wuppermann’s main tasks. This applies to confidential business information, customer data, personal data and other critical information.
For this purpose, technical and organisational security measures are taken using state-of-the-art technology and internationally recognised best practices and security standards, and these measures are improved on an ongoing basis.

7. Rights of the person concerned
Every individual whose personal data is processed by Wuppermann has the opportunity to assert his or her own rights at any time and to exercise these rights with Wuppermann’s data protection officer.
To exercise your rights as the person concerned, you can contact Wuppermann at any time by email by sending your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at the contact address of the respective body responsible.
The persons concerned can request information at any time into which personal information about them is being processed and what purposes the processing will serve.
The persons concerned have the right to demand that any incorrect personal data pertaining to them be corrected without delay.
The persons concerned have the right to limit processing if the accuracy of the data concerned is in dispute, the processing is unlawful, the data for the processing is no longer required, or if the individuals concerned have objected to its processing.
The persons concerned have the right to object to the processing of personal data that relates to them at any time.
The persons concerned have the right to receive the personal data pertaining to them which they have made available to Wuppermann in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format. They also have the right to request that this data be transferred to another responsible party provided it is technically feasible.
The transferability shall only apply to personal data which is processed with the help of automated processing methods.
Deletion – the right to be forgotten
The person concerned has the right to demand the immediate deletion of the personal data pertaining to him/her if there is no legal basis for processing the data or it ceases to exist, the data processing objected to, the data processing is unlawful and no legally required retention periods prevent its deletion.
Data security has also been given high priority with respect to the rights of the persons concerned, which is why the assertion of rights of the person concerned is only possible after the person concerned has been identified beyond any doubt.
Furthermore, you have the right to file a complaint at the Data Protection Authority at any time.
8. Data transmission
Transmission of personal data to a recipient outside of the corporate group or to recipients in EU third countries will only be carried out in a lawful manner in accordance with applicable laws while respecting the highest level of confidentiality and data security.
As part of executing processing on a group-wide basis, personal data is exchanged between companies within the Wuppermann Group. Sharing this information is regulated by a set of rules known as Binding Corporate Rules, which outlines uniform standards for protecting and processing data in a legally compliant manner.
Wuppermann employs the services of several different processors for data processing. All processors have a contractual obligation to comply with applicable legal regulations for data protection.
9. Continuous monitoring and improvements
Wuppermann places great importance on making continual improvements to quality and processes.
Compliance with data protection regulations, applicable laws and the efficacy of measures taken for data protection and data security are monitored and improved on an ongoing basis, so that we can guarantee optimal implementation of data protection measures.
