DATEV's Online Data Security Principles
For DATEV the security of your personal data has the highest priority. This principle applies to our internet offer as well as to our conventional services.
Therefore we would like to show you how data security regulations are applied to our internet offer.
1. Collection and Processing of Personal Data
When accessing our web sites web server logbooks are created which DATEV stores for about 2 - 3 months for statistic purposes (e. g. amount of hits of the site) or tracking of errors. Should a longer storage time be required for statistic reasons it is carried out anonymously only. Further analysis of your data will not be carried out without your consent.
Furthermore,l your personal data will only be stored when you give it to us voluntarily, e. g. when registring in the founders' roll, or entering it for a survey or an order. Your data will only be used for the purpose shown on the respective site, e.g. for handling your order.
When you read back sites and files of this offer and you are asked to enter personal data, please bear in mind that this data transfer via the internet is carried out unsecured and that unauthorized persons can take notice of or even fraudulently alter the data. These risks do not exist in the non-public area of DATEV's web site because the data transfer is coded.
We do not pass on any person related data to a third party.
2. Dealing with E-Mail Addresses
When sending us an e-mail we use your e-mail address for the correspondence with you only; of course we do not pass it on to a third party.
3. Obtaining Information
In case DATEV has stored any of your personal data you can apply free of charge for information on all data stored concerning your person. Please inform us if we have stored incorrect data so we can correct, block or delete it.
Cookies are small amounts of data which the operator of a web-site stores onto your computer.
On its websites, DATEV uses temporary cookies as well as permanent ones. As the term implies, temporary cookies are only valid for a limited time and they contain data such as an identification number (a so-called session ID). They enable the server to allocate successive browser enquiries to the same user. As soon as the user exits the browser the cookies are automatically deleted.
5. Coding Data when Transferring it
Information transfered via the internet is normally not coded. Since the way of the data between the server and the local personal computer can never be told exactly the transferred data can be looked into in many places.
As a matter of principle sensitive information is transferred coded from the non-public area of our web site to your personal computer. The keys required for this technique are stored on a SmartCard. Therefore the non-public areas can be accessed only when using a SmartCard.
