DPD takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. This applies not just to the data which you provide when you visit our website (www.dpd.com), but also to the especially sensitive data which you have to enter when you use our online shipping service (www.dpd-onlineversand.de).
For this reason DPD operates its website and internet portal in compliance with the applicable data protection and data security. As a private company DPD is in particular subject to the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Telecommunications Media Act (TMG).
Under this legislation DPD has the right to record and process personal data to the extent that this is necessary for the establishment and content of the contractual relationship (basic user data), to enable the use of the portal and the services offered there (usage data) and the invoicing of these services (invoicing data).
DPD wishes to ensure that visitors and users have confidence in its online services and therefore provides transparency about the way it treats personal data. Here you can learn what information is collected and how it is used.
In accordance with §3 BDSG personal data is defined as individual details about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person.
In principle you can use our website (www.dpd.com ) without revealing your identity.
In order to use DPD's online shipping service (www.dpd-onlineversand.de) you have to register with us and be activated as a user. The contractual terms of the business information services which can be used via the portal make such registration and personalisation necessary.
For registration purposes DPD will request your email address, password and other personal information.
DPD stores its data on specially protected servers in Germany. Access to these is only permitted to a few authorised personnel who are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial aspects of these servers. DPD takes the necessary precautions to guarantee the security of personal data. Your data will be conscientiously protected against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorised access or publication.
DPD uses and processes your personal data only internally within the company. Such data is not passed on, either in the form of sale, rental or exchange. If we need to transfer data to external service providers for the purpose of implementing the relevant service (processing of order data), these service providers will be subject to the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act, other applicable legal directives and the present declaration on data protection.
DPD does not pass on your data to third persons, unless such transfer takes place in the course of the implementation of a contractual purpose which is known to you, you have given your express consent to such a transfer in advance or the company is under a legal obligation to make such a transfer.
If you have entrusted personal data to DPD you can withdraw this at any time; we will delete your data immediately, unless there is a legal obligation for it to be archived. If deletion is not possible for this or some other reason, we will block the data for any further use, as stipulated by the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The 'Contact' navigation on our website and internet portal enables you not just to get in touch with DPD, for example, you can also cancel your agreement to the future recording, processing and use of your personal data. The personal data you have already provided us with will then be deleted.
In addition you can contact our data protection officer at [email protected] and request the deletion of your personal data. If you have a question about parcel shipping with DPD please use our contact form.
When its information portal is accessed, DPD receives usage data which is stored for backup purposes and which may enable identification of the user (e.g. IP address, date, time and the pages which have been accessed). This data is not used in a person-related way and is only analysed for the statistical evaluation of anonymised data records.
DPD can temporarily save IP addresses in particular for the purpose of ensuring effective protection of its website. An IP address is a sequence of numbers which are used for addressing data packages on the internet. If there is a report of misuse, the IP address of the responsible access code is saved during the first login after the reported misuse and, if a court order is made to this effect, passed on to the responsible legal authorities together with the remaining available personal data. If the report of misuse should turn out to be without due cause, the IP address which has been saved will be deleted again immediately.
"Cookies" are small files which enable DPD to store specific information related to you on your PC while you visit our website. These cookies help us to check on the frequency of use and the number of users who visit our internet pages, and to make our services to you as convenient and efficient as possible.
Our internet pages contain some links to external websites. We are not responsible for the contents of these sites and the terms of their data protection declarations . We therefore recommend that before using other services you should find out about their data protection terms.
If programmes are made available for downloading this is implemented on condition that liability is accepted only in the absence of warranted features, the culpable infringement of major obligations, the deliberate or grossly negligent failure to fulfil other obligations and culpable injury to health.
The use of all brands and logos is only permitted to third parties on request.
If you have any questions, suggestions or remarks on the subject of data protection our data protection officer will be happy to help you and provide you with information about your data which has been saved by us. You can contact him at [email protected]. If you have a question about parcel shipping with DPD please use our contact form.
The rapid technical development of the internet and the resulting legal changes make it necessary to modify our data protection declaration from time to time in line with new technical and/or legal requirements. We will keep you informed here about any new developments, which means that you should access our data protection declaration from time to time in order to stay up to date on possible changes.
