Privacy Policy – Data Protection Statement

At IMPART, your safety comes first. We want to protect your privacy. Therefore, we only use the information we collect to process orders and answer your questions. We do not use cookies for your registration!

Seminar area

If you register with us, we must ask for your name, your billing address, your e-mail address. We can only process your order on the basis of this information.

As a participant in one of our seminars, we will send you a regular newsletter. IMPART does not make your personal data available to third parties for their use. There is an agreement on data processing with the consultant according to DSGVO of May 2018.

Newsletter

If you no longer wish to receive this newsletter, you can inform us of this with a mouse click and we will delete your e-mail address from our mailing list. IMPART does not make your personal data available to third parties for their use.

Tests

Diplom-Psychologen are subject to confidentiality according to § 203 Strafgesetzbuch (StGB). Our customers who work with our tests are subject to this declaration as psychologists and/or have signed it.

We use a secure transmission procedure, all test data is encrypted in raw data format and stored on a secure server located at a specialist company and not in our office. The context questionnaires are SSL encrypted. The test results are not stored on the server. Results are generated the moment your consultant downloads your results into his password-protected area.

Your consultant is responsible for these data. Your consultant can archive and/or anonymise your data after the end of the consultation. The test results are only accessible to your consultant in a password-protected area.

All information transmitted using this secure method does not remain on the server. No personal data from you need to be stored on the server (name, address, e-mail, etc.). Only the storage of the name or an alias name is recommended, so that it does not come to mix-ups.

After the consultation has been completed, your consultant can archive your test data so that they are no longer directly accessible to him. They will then no longer appear on his account. If desired, the raw data can be deleted.

Your questions and comments on data protection at IMPART are welcome. Please send an e-mail to: info@impart.de
