Data privacy notice

Please note that this translation is for your information only.
The legally binding text in German can be found here.


The following information is intended to inform you of our policy on data privacy. It explains how we protect personal data, how we use your personal data transmitted to us by services offered (e.g. newsletters or competitions), and how you can at any time revoke your permission for the use and storage of your personal data.

Our approach to data privacy

We take the protection of personal data very seriously and undertake to respect the privacy of everyone who uses our website. We are committed to handling the personal data of users of our website in accordance with applicable regulations on the protection of personal data, in particular the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Services Act (TMG).

What is personal data?

Personal data, as defined by the BDSG, is individual information relating to the personal and factual circumstances of a natural person: e.g., name, address, email address, username (nickname), telephone number, age, gender or areas of interest. We collect, process and use – with a defined purpose and with your permission – only the data that we require, e.g., to be able to register you as a myDG participant, newsletter subscriber or participant in a competition.

Do we pass on your personal data to third parties?

Categorically we use your personal data only within our company. However, for the development of some of our online services we also use other companies within our group and affiliated partner organisations. We ensure that we have obliged these companies to use your personal data only for specific purposes according to our instructions. Further processing or use of the data without your express permission is prohibited.


Cookies are small files that can be saved on a visitor’s computer when they visit a website. Cookies make visiting our website easier and help recognise you on your next visit. For example, cookies can serve to create user profiles. They help us to adapt the content of our website even better to your requirements. Our company’s cookies do not contain any information about you but simply an index number with no meaning outside our online presence. In addition, cookies cannot harm the visitor’s computer system. If you do not wish to benefit from cookies, you can deactivate – or re-activate – these with a simple procedure in your web browser.

Use of Facebook social plug-ins

Our website uses social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from the social network platform Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the suffix “Facebook Social Plug-in”. When you visit one of our websites that includes one of these plug-ins, your browser creates a direct link to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plug-in is directly transmitted from Facebook to your browser and from here integrated into the website.

By integrating the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that you have visited one of our websites. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can allocate your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-in, for example by pressing the ‘like’ button or by making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and saved there.

You can find more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your related rights and settings options for protecting your privacy, in Facebook´s Privacy Policy. If you do not want Facebook to collect information about you via our websites, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our websites.
