Privacy policy

Data protection
For us at CLARUS International Consulting and Market Research GmbH, as a company involved in market and opinion research, data protection is a particularly important aspect because we receive information about both private and business people. The information we are given by these groups of people is often strictly confidential (‘personal data’). For protection, when dealing with personal data we comply with the requirements of the relevant applicable laws, e.g. the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG, or German Data Protection Act) and the Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DSGVO, or General Data Protection Regulation).

The operator of this site takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal data protection regulations and this Privacy Policy.

The use of our website is usually possible without disclosing personal data. Insofar as personal data (for example, name, address or email addresses) is collected on our site, this is done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent.

We must point out that data transmission in the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) may have gaps in security. Complete protection of data from third-party access is not possible.
