Data Protection

Data Protection Declaration

The responsible body under data protection laws is:

SYNNECTA GmbH | Auf der Ruhr 27 | D-50999 Köln
phone +49 221 390 9339-0 | fax +49 221 390 9339-9

In accordance with the applicable provisions of the new data protection regulations which will come into force on 25 May 2018, German companies in Germany are generally obliged to appoint a data protection officer, who is a point of contact and responsible person for all matters of the Group in relation to the electronic handling of personal data of customers or clients. However, the new data protection law does not place a corresponding obligation on a company if its permanent number of fixed employees does not exceed the threshold of ten persons.

Even though these requirements permanently apply at SYNNECTA, for purely precautionary reasons and in the interests of the comprehensive protection of customers and clients of SYNNECTA, a data protection officer was appointed on 25 May 2018 in the person of the proxy, Mr Thomas Meilinger. You can find his contact details at the end of our data protection declaration.
