The confirmation of secure data in e-commerce
A website labelled with the statement: “Data protected in Germany” offers you the highest level of data security and data protection in line with the Federal Data Protection Act.
It is hosted in a data centre in Germany, which has the most important certifications from independent institutions.
So you, as a consumer, can be sure when shopping online that:
Your personal data does not leave Germany at any point.
Your data is particularly safe from access by third parties.
Even sensitive credit card data can be processed and stored securely.
The confirmation covers the following points:
- The solution is hosted in a data centre in Germany.
- Foreign authorities may not access the data.
- Data will not be handed over to foreign authorities.
- The European Data Protection Directive states that the company’s headquarters is crucial for deciding the valid data protection guidelines. The EU Basic Data Protection Regulation takes the same stance.
- PlusServer acts on behalf of the company as a service provider.
- The German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG), which is transposed by the European Data Protection Directive 65/46/EC in German law, applies.
- PlusServer is headquartered in Cologne and is registered on the commercial register there under HRB 84977.
- The BDSG is one of the strictest data protection laws in the world. It regulates the collection, processing and use of data.
- The data centre is certified according to the internationally recognised ISO 27001 standard by TÜV SÜD. This certificate governs the requirements for the production, implementation, operation, monitoring, maintenance and improvement of a documented information security management system (ISMS).
- It is also certified to the PCI DSS standard by the TÜV SÜD. As a comprehensive standard, PCI DSS supports organisations in preventatively protecting customer information. This increases the standard of security when handling credit card data.
- In addition, a Network Operations Centre is operated by engineers in Germany on a 24/7 basis. The employees are trained to defend against cybercrime and have extensive experience in this field.
