We generate recommendations that are highly sensitive for our customers and have an impact on competition. Therefore, data security and protection are of enormous importance to us.
Our services fully meet the stringent requirements of GDPR. That’s why we made our product the first to be certified by an independent institute. As such, we can guarantee that Open Telekom Cloud offers the very highest security standards.
The Open Telekom Cloud – 100% compliant with the GDPR
Because the data centers of the Open Telekom Cloud are located in Germany and the Netherlands, your data will never leave Europe. As a result, you can rest assured that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fully complied with at all times.
Hosted in Germany and the Netherlands
Compliance with the GDPR depends on the location of a cloud provider’s data centers or where the personal data is stored and processed.
Does your business model only allow for data processing in Germany? Then we will provide your resources in the Open Telekom Cloud together with data backup in German data centers. Are you planning a project across multiple countries or do you value geo-redundancy with a distance of more than 200 kilometers between the data centers? Then our twin-core data center in Amsterdam is also available to you.
Specifications of the DSGVO checked by "TCDP 1.0"
As proof of German data protection, the Open Telekom Cloud was one of the first providers to receive the TCDP 1.0 certificate. The TCDP certification will be replaced in future by the "GDPR CC" certification, with the aim of applying European data protection in a sustainable manner. "GDPR CC" enables us to demonstrate the compatibility of your data processing processes with the data protection requirements of the DSGVO.
Compliance with industry-specific regulations (German Law)
– professional secrecy holders & social data
The Open Telekom Cloud facilitates the secure processing of data of professional secrecy holders according to § 203 of the German Criminal Code (StGB), e.g., elected attorneys, doctors, auditors or legal departments in companies and social data in accordance with Section 35 of the German Social Security Code I (§ 35 SGB I), e.g., data from health insurance companies or medical clearinghouses.
With the agreement on the protection of secrets, Telekom commits itself to the professional secrecy holder to keep the specially protected data secret and thus also takes into account the requirements under professional law for the use of cloud services. Find out more
Dr. Melanie Stein, attorney from Telekom's Law & Integrity department
The standard social data secrecy obligation for employees and service providers operating on the Open Telekom Cloud means that those providing social benefits can use the Open Telekom Cloud to host data covered by social service data secrecy in the cloud without any contractual adjustments or legal coordination.
