DATA PROTECTION

You can rely on us to protect and safeguard your personal data. Protecting your privacy in the processing of personal data is a matter of importance to myGermanExpert (MGE).

We will collect, process and utilise personal data only if you supply this information voluntarily. MGE will not provide third parties with any personal data that you may have sent to us without first obtaining your express permission.

Is your information safe and what do we do with it?

Your payments for the Anmeldung service are processed securely by PayPal. All information exchanged to process the payment is encrypted using the SSL protocol. These data cannot be detected, intercepted or used by third parties, and are not kept on our computer systems either. We do not store your credit and debit cards data.

When you click the “apply now” link a new window opens. This is a Secure encrypted page held on a secure server. You can check this by the addition of https:// in the address bar. Your information is then encrypted before it is sent over the internet to us. It is then stored on a SSL secure server.

Any information which is provided by you will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality in accordance with the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995. We will only use the personal information you provide to deliver the services you have requested, or for our lawful, disclosed purposes. We will not make your personal details available outside our organisation without your consent, unless obliged by law. If at any time you decide you no longer wish us to hold or use the personal information you have provided us, or in the event that the information becomes out of date, please feel free to notify us and we will remove or correct the information as soon as possible.
