The most important facts
Our commissioned processing contract governs the collection, processing or use of personal information by us as your telecommunications service provider. The basis for this cooperation is a written contract. The decisive factor for this contract is currently the § 11 BDSG, Article 17 of the EU Data Protection Directive, and from 25.5.2018 on the more detailed regulations from Article 28 GDPR.
How do I get my ODP contract?
Why do I need this?
The European Union has re-regulated the storage and processing of data with the „General Data Protection Regulation“ (GDPR, or DSGVO). This results in important new rights for consumers, e.g. the right to information, access, error correction, deletion, restriction of use and data portability.
The GDPR / DSGVO currently only affects companies and organizations and especially those with more than 250 employees. Private persons are explicitly excluded. However, if you collect, save and process data as a freelancer, for example, you are affected, even if the „collect data“ only exists when creating an address book entry for an online service such as sipgate basic or sipgate team.
Since the new regulation, companies are obliged to check all their data-processing service providers (such as sipgate) for compliance with the GDPR / DSGVO and to conclude corresponding contracts with them (as our commissioned processing contract).
