Data privacy is a special concern of MAURER SE. Our efforts to fulfil, in particular, the requirements of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Teleservices Act (TMG), are first and foremost geared to the objective to respect your privacy.
For modern companies like MAURER SE, today it is inevitable to use electronic data processing systems (DPS). In doing so, it goes without saying that we attach great importance to observing legal regulations, in particular those of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
To MAURER SE, data privacy is a matter of particular concern. Our efforts to comply in particular with the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act in its current version aim first and foremost at respecting your private and personal sphere.
These days, for modern enterprises such as MAURER SE it is indispensable to use electronic data processing equipment (EDP). It is self-evident that we apply highest standards in order to comply with legal regulations.
Generally, it is possible to make use of the MAURER websites without entering any personal data. If a data subject wants to use special company services offered on our website, this may require the processing of personal data. In case the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for it, we shall, as a matter of principle, ask the data subject for his/her consent.
On no account shall we sell or rent out your personal data to third parties for their marketing or other purposes. In case you do not agree with the data protection regulations, please do not send any personal data to us.
