4. Who does Deutsche Telekom Security GmbH pass on my data to?

To contract processors, i.e. companies that we entrust with the processing of data within the legally prescribed framework, Art. 28 GDPR (service providers, vicarious agents). Deutsche Telekom Security GmbH remains responsible for the privacy of your data even in this case. We commission companies in the following areas in particular: IT, sales, marketing, finance, consulting, customer service, human resources, logistics, printing.
To cooperation partners who provide services on their own responsibility for you or in connection with your DT Security contract. This is the case if you commission services from such partners from us or if you consent to the involvement of the partner or if we involve the partner on the basis of a legal permit.
Due to legal obligation: In certain cases we are legally obliged to transmit certain data to the requesting state authority.

5. Where will my data be processed?

Your data will be processed in Germany and other European countries. If, in exceptional cases, your data is also processed in countries outside the European Union (i.e. in so-called third countries), this will happen if you have expressly consented to this or if it is necessary for our provision of services to you or if it is provided for by law (Art. 49 GDPR). In addition, your data will only be processed in third countries if certain measures have been taken to ensure that an appropriate level of data privacy exists (e.g. the EU Commission's adequacy decision or so-called suitable guarantees, Art. 44 et seq. GDPR).
