Data protection and consumer protection
Our goal is to provide every person or company only with those offers in which they are actually interested and which provide them with real advantages.
This serves the interests of all parties involved in the development of the market, however, it also raises questions about data protection due to the detailed consumer information required.
In his book “New Dimensions in Direct Marketing”, company founder Klaus Schober states:
Data protection – important and right
„The more detailed and precise the information for and about potential consumers, the more significant and sensitive the issue of data protection becomes. That’s why, in my company, we adhere to the incontestable principle: Data protection is important and right. In line with our data protection, all of our information is processed very carefully and is routinely checked by the regulatory authority responsible. Sensitive data is only used if written permission is received from those concerned. What this means for us is that data protection and benefits for the consumer go hand-in-hand.“
