Personal data

Personal data denotes any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your real name, address, telephone number and date of birth. Information that is not directly linked to your true identity – such as favorite websites or a site’s number of users – does not constitute personal data.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to protect our website against spam and misuse. reCAPTCHA prevents automated software (termed “bots”) from engaging in abusive activities on the website, i.e. it helps check whether the inputs are actually made by a human being. In order to determine this, the following data is transferred to Google:

  • Referrer (the address of the site on which the CAPTCHA is used)
  • The user’s IP address
  • The user’s Google account (the account is recognized and assigned if the user is logged on to Google)
  • The user’s input behavior (such as answering of the reCAPTCHA question, the speed at which inputs are made in the form fields, the sequence in which the user selected the input fields) is used to improve pattern recognition in Google. The browser, its size and resolution, browser plug-ins, date, and language setting
  • Display instructions (CSS) and scripts (JavaScript) for the website
  • Mouse and touch events on the page

Google also reads the cookies from other Google services, such as Gmail, Search and Analytics. All the specified data is sent to Google in encrypted form. Google’s subsequent analysis determines the form in which the CAPTCHA is shown on the page: as a checkbox or a box in which text is entered. Personal data from the input fields of the form in question is not read or stored.

The data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1) letter (f) GDPR. Deutsche Post AG has a legitimate interest in protecting the websites of deutschepost.de against abusive automated attempts to access them and spam.

You can find more information on Google’s Privacy Policy at www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Purpose of data processing

We process your data, for example,

  • to satisfy the terms of the contract we signed with you or with a sender;
  • to ensure that your visit to our websites/apps is as pleasant as possible;
  • to send you a newsletter if you are a subscriber;
  • to send or show you tailored advertising, to the extent permissible;
  • to conduct a creditworthiness check as necessary;
  • to satisfy legal requirements (e.g. the German Code of Criminal Procedure (StPO) or German Foreign Trade and Payments Act (AWG));
  • in connection with our security requirements (e.g. to uncover criminal activity);
  • to produce statistics;
  • to secure payment;
  • and for purposes of quality assurance, process optimization and reliable planning.

You will find further details on, for example, the type of data, the purpose of data processing, and the legal basis in the sections on the respective products.

Please use our contact form if you wish to exercise any of your rights.

As a data subject, you have the right:

a) to obtain information on and access to the data stored about you,

b) to demand that incorrect data we store concerning you be rectified,

c) to have your personal data erased or, if statutory retention periods apply, restrict the processing of data no longer required for the specified purpose,

d) to access the personal data you provided in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format,

e) to raise an objection if your data is being processed on the grounds of a legitimate interest / to the use of your data for advertising purposes / to your being subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling,

f) to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if you suspect that your data has not been processed in compliance with data protection legislation.

If you do not provide the data indicated as being necessary, a contract cannot be established.

Should you wish to exercise any of your rights, please contact us

by contact form: www.deutschepost.de/datenschutz/kontakt.

If you exercise your right to object – especially to the use of your data for advertising purposes – please contact the address given in the relevant “Products and Services” section.

If you have consented to your personal data being used for a certain type of processing, you may withdraw such consent at any time with future effect by notifying us at the address we specified when you gave your consent. You will find this in the details regarding the “Products and Services” for which your consent was obtained.

Duration of storage

The data will be stored for as long as necessary. The need therefor follows either from statutory retention periods, for example, as set forth in Section 257 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) or Section 147 of the German Fiscal Code (AO). In the absence of statutory retention periods, the data is stored for the purpose of fulfilling and settling the given contract and for evidencing proper fulfillment until the expiration of applicable liability periods; it is erased thereafter. Please also note that your data will be stored in our backup system and that backup files are continually overwritten whenever the system is updated.

Group Data Privacy Policy

The DPDHL Data Privacy Policy defines Group-wide standards for data processing, with a specific focus on so-called third-country transfers, meaning the transmission of personal data to countries outside the EU which do not offer an adequate level of data protection.

Collection and processing of personal data

When you visit our websites, our web servers temporarily store the following information as standard for the purpose of system security: the connection data of the requesting computer system, which of our websites you visit, the date and length of your visit, the data identifying the type of browser and operating system used, and the website from which you visit us. Other personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, is not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily, for example as part of a registration procedure, survey, competition, performance of a contract or request for information.

Use and forwarding of personal data
We use the personal data provided by you exclusively for the purpose of technical administration of our websites and to fulfill your wishes and requirements, i.e. generally to perform the contract concluded with you or to respond to your inquiry.
 
We only use such data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes if you have given us your prior consent and if you have not filed an objection, insofar as this is permitted by law.
 
Your personal data is not disclosed, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties, unless that is necessary for handling the contract or you have given your explicit consent. It may be necessary, for example, for us to disclose your address and order data to our suppliers when you order products.
Information from the Group

The companies in the Deutsche Post DHL Group would like to contact you with information about offers and other news relating to our products and services. If you register with our websites, we will therefore ask you to tell us whether you would like to receive direct promotional messages from us. As a customer of Deutsche Post, you will naturally continue to receive the necessary information on important changes relating to existing contracts (e.g. price changes).

Use of web tracking

We use tracking software on our websites to monitor their frequency of use and the number of users. This software does not collect personal data and IP addresses. The data is used exclusively in anonymized, summarized form for statistical purposes and for the development of the website.

Newsletter

If you register for the Deutsche Post newsletter, you declare that you agree to receive quarterly information by e-mail about seasonal products and offers, new services and the latest competitions.

You can withdraw your consent at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mail you receive.

Use of cookies

Cookies are small files that enable us to store information related specifically to you, the user, on your PC while you visit one of our websites. Cookies help us to determine how frequently our Internet pages are accessed as well as the number of users. They also help us configure our offerings so that they are as convenient and efficient as possible for you.

On the one hand, we use, “session cookies”, i.e. cookies that are stored exclusively for the duration of your visit to one of our Internet pages. On the other, we use “persistent cookies” to retain information about visitors who repeatedly access one of our Internet pages. The purpose of using these cookies is to be able to offer you optimal user guidance as well as to “recognize” you and thus be able to present (as far as possible) diversified Internet pages and fresh content if you use the pages repeatedly. The content of a persistent cookie is limited to an identification number. Your name, IP address, etc. are not saved. We do not create an individual profile of your online activities.

You can also use our offerings without cookies. In your browser, you can deactivate the saving of cookies, limit them to certain websites or set your browser so that you are notified as soon as a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies from your PC at any time (“cookies” folder). However, please note that in this case you will have to expect restricted page presentation and user guidance.

Further data protection details, including the possibility of revoking consent, can be found here. Valid for one year.
Security

Deutsche Post takes all necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from being lost or misused. For instance, your data is saved in a secure operating environment which is not accessible to the public. In certain cases, your personal data is encrypted by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology during transmission. This means that an approved encryption procedure is used for communication between your computer and the Deutsche Post servers if your browser supports SSL.

Should you wish to contact Deutsche Post by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information sent cannot be guaranteed. The contents of e-mail messages can be read by third parties. We therefore advise you to send us confidential information solely by post.

How to manage cookies

It is also possible to use our products and services without cookies. You can normally deactivate the saving of cookies in your browser or limit them to certain websites. The browser can be set to notify you when a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies from your hard drive at any time (“cookies” folder). However, in this case you will have to expect restricted page presentation and user guidance.

Reference to address matching technology

Use of Deutsche Post AG’s address matching technology – your right to object

Our website uses Deutsche Post AG’s address matching technology to determine statistical parameters and to form target groups for advertising purposes (offline and online). For this measurement, your stored delivery or billing address is assigned by a commissioned service provider to an anonymous microcell of Deutsche Post Direkt GmbH (Ø 6.6 households), and this code is stored in encrypted form with another service provider (address matching).

The legal basis for this use of the address, in shared responsibility between us and Deutsche Post AG, is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter (f) GDPR. The address is deleted at the service provider’s end immediately after matching. It is therefore the website operator who is responsible for this initial processing step – the use of the stored address for the purpose of matching it against the microcell database. The same applies to the pixelization of the website described below and the forwarding of a user’s request to Deutsche Post AG for subsequent labeling using a cookie.

If you have given your consent, after you have accessed our website, an inquiry from the device used by you is initiated on a server operated by a service provider commissioned by Deutsche Post AG, which stores two cookies on the PC or other device used by you. This consent also includes the authorization to subsequently read the cookies stored by Deutsche Post AG and sync them with other providers’ cookies (cookie syncing a.k.a. cookie matching). To this end, a third-party provider’s cookie ID stored on your device is forwarded to Deutsche Post AG, assigned to the cookie ID issued by the latter and used to implement the purposes mentioned. As the website operator, we document the consent given on our website and provide it to Deutsche Post AG if required.

The cookies are used to help record you as a visitor to a website participating in the measurement. This information is then aggregated on the basis of the abovementioned anonymous microcell of Deutsche Post Direkt GmbH and can therefore no longer be assigned to your person.

The consent required includes the purposes listed below:

  • Measurement of access to websites I have visited that are participating in Deutsche Post AG’s Consentric procedure, for anonymous inclusion in statistics;
  • Measurement of access to websites I have visited that are participating in Deutsche Post AG’s Consentric procedure, in order to identify relevant anonymous microcells of Deutsche Post Direkt GmbH;
  • Transfer of cookie IDs to partner companies for the purpose of target group formation for the transmission of online advertising. The cookie IDs used for this purpose were selected in advance as a relevant target group based on the indirectly assigned microcell;
  • Match against cookies from other providers (cookie matching). A third-party provider’s cookie ID stored on my device may be forwarded to Deutsche Post AG, stored there as a unique cookie ID and used to implement the purposes mentioned above.

We set cookies from The UK Trade Desk Ltd. 10th Floor, 1 Bartholomew Close London EC1A 7BL United Kingdom (for users from the European Economic Area and Switzerland) or from The UK Trade Desk Ltd, Global Privacy Office 2 Park Avenue, 5th Floor New York, NY 10016 (for other users). For more details, please see theTradeDesk privacy policy. The legal basis for this processing is your consent; Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

You can object to data processing as part of the procedure described or revoke the consent given at the following link:
https://pixel.consentric.de/optout
https://login.intelliad.com/optout.php

Please note: we can only recognize you and assign your opt-out based on the cookie you have set. For that reason, the cookie remains set even after an opt-out.

If you have any further queries regarding the handling of personal data, and in particular if you wish to obtain information about processed personal data or assert additional rights, please contact the website operator first. Further information on data protection in the Consentric procedure mentioned here can be found at https://www.deutschepost.de/de/c/consentric/datenschutz.html.

The right to assert your rights as a data subject, also vis-à-vis Deutsche Post AG, remains unaffected. If you have any queries, please contact: consentric@deutschepost.de.

Analysis by WiredMinds

Our website uses counting pixel technology provided by WiredMinds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) to analyze visitor behavior. In connection with this, the IP address of the visitor is processed. The processing occurs only for the purpose of collecting company based information such as company name, for example. IP addresses of natural persons are excluded from any further processing by means of a whitelist.  An IP address is not stored in LeadLab under any circumstances.

While processing data, it is our outmost interest to protect the rights of natural persons. Our interest in processing data is based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. At no time is it possible to draw conclusions from the collected data on an identifiable person.

WiredMinds GmbH uses this information to create anonymized usage profiles of the visit behavior on our website. Data obtained during this process is not used to personally identify visitors of our website.

Exclude from tracking.

shop.deutschepost.de

Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit our website shop.deutschepost.de, the website from which you visit us, the pages you visit on our website, and the date and time of access are stored. Other personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, is not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily, for example during registration, when you order a product or service online, or as part of a survey, competition or request for information. If you place an order in our Internet shop, your purchaser data is stored for the period of time customary under commercial law. Your IP address is also stored as part of an order. This data is stored explicitly to ensure IT security and to prevent and investigate fraud.
 
If you purchase Internet stamps, the sets of printed stamps are provided by means of a download link. The link is sent to you in an unencrypted e-mail. If you have selected the option “Internetmarken mit Adressen” (“Internet stamps with addresses”), it is not possible to fully rule out third parties accessing the sender and recipient data of the printed set, which is sent in unencrypted form.
 

The data owner is Deutsche Post AG.

Use and forwarding of personal data

We use the personal data provided by you for the purpose of technical administration of our websites and to fulfill your wishes and requirements, i.e. generally to perform the contract concluded with you or to respond to your inquiry.

Moreover, Deutsche Post reserves the right to send the surname, first name and full address of the customer to the credit reporting agency Verband der Vereine Creditreform e.V., Postfach 10 15 53, 41415 Neuss, company address: Hellersbergstraße 12, 41460 Neuss, Germany, so that the customer’s creditworthiness can be checked. Further checks on the customer’s creditworthiness may be conducted, depending on the order value.

We also use your postal address, where permitted by law, to send you offerings and information of interest to you. You can object to this use of your data at any time. To do so, please contact our customer service: service-shop[at]deutschepost.de.

We would also be pleased to contact you by e-mail so as to supply you with information on offers and further news about our products and services. If you register with our online shop, we will ask you to tell us whether you would like to receive direct promotional messages from us in the form of a newsletter. It goes without saying that you, as a customer of Deutsche Post AG, will continue to receive the necessary information and details of important changes in connection with existing service agreements, regardless of such consent to or any objection to use of your data for advertising purposes.

Your data is not forwarded, sold or transmitted to third parties unless that is necessary for the purpose of performing the contract or you have given your explicit consent. It may be necessary, for example, for us to disclose your address and order data to our suppliers when you order products. We will disclose data to government bodies only if required by law to do so.

Use of web tracking

We use tracking software (Adobe Analytics) on our website to monitor their frequency of use and the number of users. This software does not collect personal data and IP addresses. The data is used exclusively in anonymized, summarized form for statistical purposes and for the development of the website.

You can find an opt-out, i.e. means of deactivating web tracking on our website for your browser, on the following site:

Newsletter
By subscribing to Deutsche Post’s newsletter, you give your consent to receiving an e-mail newsletter that is sent out, compiled and tailored to your personal interests on the basis of your user behavior. Our objective is, where possible, to present you only those offerings that are of interest to you. To enable that, we collect and process the following data:
 
 - Opening and click rate for the newsletter
 
 - Usage behavior on the website (e.g. purchases)
 
The data is never disclosed to third parties or used for purposes other than those specified here. You can revoke your consent at any time with future effect. Notifying us by e-mail at service-shop[at]deutschepost.de is sufficient for that.

Collection and processing of personal data

When you visit our websites, our web servers temporarily store the following information as standard for the purpose of system security: the connection data of the requesting computer system, which of our websites you visit, the date and length of your visit, the data identifying the type of browser and operating system used, and the website from which you visit us. Other personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, is not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily, for example as part of a registration procedure, survey, competition, performance of a contract or request for information.

Use and forwarding of personal data

We use the personal data provided by you exclusively for the purpose of technical administration of our websites and to fulfill your wishes and requirements, i.e. generally to perform the contract concluded with you or to respond to your inquiry.

We only use such data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes if you have given us your prior consent and if you have not filed an objection, insofar as this is permitted by law.

Your personal data is not disclosed, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties, unless that is necessary for handling the contract or you have given your explicit consent.

Online Franking Post service

Collection and processing of personal data

When you visit the Online Franking Post service, our web servers store the following information as standard for the purpose of system security: the connection data of the requesting device, which of our websites you visit, the date and length of your visit, data identifying the type of browser and operating system used and the website from which you visit us. If you place an order, your purchaser data is stored for the period required by law. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as data processing is necessary for the performance the contract.

Your IP address is also temporarily stored as part of an order for a period of 6 months. This data is stored explicitly to ensure IT security and to prevent and investigate fraud. Deutsche Post AG has a legitimate interest in this so as to ensure a smooth process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

Other personal data, such as your name, address or telephone number, is not collected by the Online Franking Post service unless you provide this data voluntarily, for example as part of a survey or request for information. The legal basis in these cases is Art. 6, para. 1, sentence 1 lit. a of the GDPR, i.e. your consent. 

Use and forwarding of personal data

Deutsche Post AG’s Online Franking Post service allows you to purchase stamps (mobile and online stamps) that you can use to send any of your letters or postcards across the country. In order to comply with legal requirements and to ensure that the contract can be processed and fulfilled, the stamp buyer’s personal data (e.g. method of receipt, the type and quantity of product, the buyer’s e-mail address and the payment method) is processed. The legal basis for processing personal data is Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b and c of the GDPR. 

When you buy a stamp via the Online Franking Post service, various payment methods are available.

One payment method is the online payment service PayPal. The European operator of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.á.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A. 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxemburg. If you select PayPal as your payment method, the data required for the payment process will be transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, you consent to the transmission of your personal data necessary for processing your payment. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b of the GDPR as data processing is necessary for payment via PayPal and thus for the performance of the contract.

Alternatively, a credit card can be used for paying for stamps issued by the Online Franking Post service. We use the Braintree payment service offered by PayPal (Europe) S.á.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A. 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxemburg, for this purpose. The data required to process the transaction (credit card number, expiry data and security code) will be collected and processed by the payment service provider. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b of the GDPR as data processing is necessary for payment and thus for the performance of the contract. 

With the exception of the name of the payment service provider used and an anonymized ID, Deutsche Post AG does not store any details on the payment. The entire payment process and the use of the payment data required for this purpose is handled solely by the payment service provider.

PayPal’s data protection provisions can be inspected in the PayPal data privacy policy. The data privacy policy for the use of the Braintree service can be found at https://www.braintreepayments.com/legal.

To make it easier for you to use your stamps, purchase-specific data such as your order number, date of purchase and the type of postage purchased is stored locally on your mobile device for 30 days, and can be found in the "Recent Purchases" section of the app. The legal basis for this is Art 6 para. 1, lit. b of GDPR. 

For an easier and more pleasant purchasing process, you can also choose to save your e-mail address (we need your e-mail address so we can send you your order confirmation), so your e-mail address will already be filled in when you next want to make a purchase. E-mail address are only stored locally, and so are only saved within the application on your mobile device. The legal basis for this is Article 6, para. 1, sentence 1, lit. a of GDPR, i.e. your consent. 

Your data is not forwarded, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of performing the contract or you have explicitly given your consent. We will disclose data to government bodies only if required by law to do so.

In addition, pursuant to Article 6(1) letter (c) GDPR, data is also processed to comply with statutory requirements such as Section 99 of the Federal Code of Criminal Procedure (StPO), Section 40 of the Federal Postal Services Act (PostG), etc.

Finally, data is also processed for the purposes listed below:

- to secure payment,
- for our security needs (e.g. to detect criminal offenses),
- to produce statistics,
- for quality assurance, process optimization and reliable planning and
- to provide user-related advertising insofar as this is permitted.

The above constitute legitimate interests of Deutsche Post AG so that it can ensure smooth processes and can continually improve its products and services. Deutsche Post AG is of the opinion that there are no overriding interests to prevent processing because the intensity of interference with rights by such processing is kept to a minimum, e.g. by using pseudonyms. Article 6(1) letter (f) GDPR thus provides the legal basis for the data processing.

3. Storage period

As a general rule, shipment data is deleted following contract fulfillment, however, certain aspects should be taken into account. Data from shipments for which no proof of delivery is required is stored for a maximum of 15 working days for the purpose of quality assurance and revenue protection, and for the fulfillment of any additional services ordered. For shipments requiring proof of delivery, shipment data is stored for the period of liability (cf. Section 439 (1) HBG) and in accordance with any statutory retention obligations (e.g., Section 257 HGB or Section 147 AO).

4. Recipients or categories of recipients:

Data is passed on to the companies involved in the provision of postal services. Similarly, data is passed on to comply with statutory requirements (e.g. to investigating authorities). Some customer services and IT services are outsourced to external providers.

5. Third-country transfer (i.e. personal data is transmitted to a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or the data is accessed from there)

As a matter of principle, your data is not processed in third countries. However, where items are shipped abroad, the data is transmitted to the postal service in that country in order to perform the contract.

Redirection and storage services

1. Type of data, purposes and legal basis for processing

Your personal data (first and last name, e-mail address where applicable, telephone number where applicable, first and last names of other persons to whom the redirection service should apply where applicable, your (former) address (street name, house number, postal code, city, any additional address information and/or P.O. box), new address (state, street name, house number, postal code, city, any additional address information and/or P.O. box) for redirection, reason for redirection, dates and duration of the redirection service, any additional services) shall be primarily processed for the purpose of mail redirection and therefore performance of a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1b) GDPR in conjunction with Section 41a (1) sentence 3 of the Federal Postal Services Act (Postgesetz, PostG).

In individual cases, the new address shall also be transmitted pursuant to Article 6 (1c) GDPR, in order to comply with statutory requirements such as Section 99 of the Federal Code of Criminal Procedure (Strafprozeßordnung, StPO), Section 40 PostG, etc. If you consent to the address data being shared with senders who were aware of your former address by selecting the relocation notification service, the data shall be processed on the basis of a declaration of consent pursuant to Article 6 (1a) GDPR.

Your personal data shall also be processed for the purpose of producing statistics, for quality assurance, process optimization and reliable planning, and to provide you with user-related advertising insofar as this is permitted. Deutsche Post AG has a legitimate interest in this in order to ensure a smooth process and to improve products and services on an ongoing basis. Deutsche Post AG believes that data subjects’ privacy interests do not override its own interests because, in terms of the potential magnitude of interference with privacy rights, the data processing is kept to a minimum, e.g. by using pseudonyms. Article 6 (1f) GDPR thus provides the legal basis for the data processing.

2. Storage period

Personal data shall be stored for a maximum of two years following submission of the application and then deleted.

3. Recipients or categories of recipients

Your data shall be transmitted to the companies involved in the provision of postal services. Deutsche Post has outsourced certain customer services and services relating to IT to service providers that are involved in processing orders. We can make the relocation address stated in your redirection application available on request to senders who hold your former address for the purpose of updating your address details. However, we will only do this if:

  • the requestor knows your former address
  • and you have signed the declaration of consent in the redirection application
  • and the redirection application has been made due to a permanent change of address and not due to temporary absence, for example.

If the declaration of consent has not been signed, we will only share the relocation address if we are obligated to provide this information by law:

  • in the event of requests from courts and authorities that require the new address for the purposes of issuing mail (Section 40 PostG),
  • in the event of requests from consumer protection associations and similar institutions for the purpose of the legal prosecution of breaches of consumer protection and competition law (Section 13 Injunctive Relief Act (Unterlassungsklagengesetz), Section 13 Act against Unfair Competition (Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb)),
  • in the event of requests from other postal service providers for their own redirections, provided you have not declined to provide the information to this group of recipients (Section 29 PostG).

If you have signed the declaration of consent and have not objected to Deutsche Post providing your change of address details to other postal service providers, other postal service providers may share the change of address details with the sender of a mail item you have ordered on request for the purpose of ensuring the correct addressing of future mail items. This will therefore ensure that as many future mail items as possible bear the new address immediately. If you do not consent to this particular condition, you may decline to have your relocation address shared with these parties.

Notes regarding the declaration of consent

By requesting a relocation notification, you consent to the storage and transmission of the address data to persons and companies that still hold your former address. We do this in order to meet our customers’ need and desire for all mail to be sent to the correct address. When changing address, people often forget to notify all of their previous communication partners of their new address. To ensure that their mail items continue to reach you, your address shall be transmitted by Deutsche Post itself and/or Deutsche Post Adress GmbH & Co. KG – as well as to other service providers involved in the postal industry where applicable – under the conditions stated above. However, this shall only happen for a maximum of 2 years. Recipients of the new address may use and, if applicable, further process and transmit it in accordance with prevailing data protection legislation. A relocation address outside of Germany shall also only be transmitted under the above conditions, and where the level of data protection in place in the country from which the request originates corresponds with that of the Federal Data Protection Act, i.e. that your address will not be used for any purposes other than those permitted in Germany.

Private customers may include multiple persons on their application for a redirection order with Deutsche Post (for companies, only one company or part of a company may be included per order). In the event that persons making a joint application would prefer to choose different options, this can be amended even after submitting the order. You can withdraw or submit your consent by telephone or online by providing the number on your application confirmation. Our customer service team is available via the following service number +49 (0)228 4333112 (Mon.-Fri. from 8.00 AM - 6.00 PM and Sat. from 8.00 AM - 2.00 PM, excluding national public holidays in Germany) or online at deutschepost.de/meinkundenservice (German only).

Notes on your rights to object

We shall transmit your address details to postal service providers other than Deutsche Post so that they may also redirect your mail items if you do not object to this (Right to Object 1).

To ensure that as many mail items bear your new address as possible going forward and with immediate effect, other postal service providers may also transmit your change of address to senders that have issued mail to your former address if you do not object to this (Right to Object 2, only relevant for redirections due to relocation). If you have not selected the address update service (relocation notification) as part of your order, you will not need to exercise Right to Object 2 as this is exercised automatically.

If you or members of your household would like to exercise a Right to Object, please have the number provided on your application confirmation to hand and contact our customer service team by telephone on +49 (0)228 4333112 (Mon.-Fri. from 8.00 AM - 6.00 PM and Sat. from 8.00 AM - 2.00 PM, excluding national public holidays in Germany) or online at deutschepost.de/meinkundenservice (German only). Please indicate whether each person would like to exercise Right to Object 1, Right to Object 2 or both Rights to Object.

4. Transfer to a third country (i.e. the data is transmitted to a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or is accessed from there)

As a matter of principle, your personal data is not processed in third countries. However, if mail is to be redirected to a foreign address, the data shall be passed on to the postal service in that country for the purpose of performance of the contract.

Customers will soon be able to order the additional service of letter notification P.O. box, that is, the forwarding of the letter notification including item images (front of the letters) to the customer’s e-mail address.

If the enhanced service “E-mail with image preview” is commissioned, the customer assumes responsibility. In addition to being displayed in the customer’s DP AG shop account, which is secured via login/PIN, the item images are sent via the internet on behalf of the customer as unencrypted e-mail and are displayed unencrypted.
