Data protection and security on the web is a never-ending topic for discussion, which, unfortunately, is often neglected. According to German law, some requirements are imposed on website operators to ensure that the data of site visitors is protected. In the case of a data protection breach, heavy fines can sometimes be imposed.

With the right partner at your side, you can count on staying safe. Together with our partner, DSGVO-Service.com, we have identified the following areas that should be made a top priority.
