What information is it about?

This concerns personal data that you provide and that we need for the performance of the services for which you rely on us. Below is an overview:

The preparation of quotations and the processing and delivery of your price request:
For the preparation of quotations and the processing of your request we have your name, e-mail address, telephone number. This allows us to process your request, deliver it and communicate with you about your request or quotation.

For what purposes is your data collected and processed?

We process the collected data in the context of customer management (the provision of services or products – thus the performance of the contract that binds us), marketing (to inform you about our services and events), accounting, public relations and legal obligations. With regard to the abrtherapy.com website , we tailor the content and ease of use to you as a user as much as possible.

What are the foundations for processing the data?

In principle, we collect and process your data based on the contractual relationship that we have with you as a result of your or our assignment.

Where processing is not necessary to perform the contractual relationship, such as with direct marketing, it is based on our legitimate interests as a company, in particular freedom of enterprise and information. In addition, we always ensure that there is a balance between your interests and ours, for example by granting you a right to object.

Is the data passed on to third parties?

Your data is mainly processed internally in the context of customer management and accounting.

For certain reasons, they can be passed on to our customers whom we rely on and who are in direct relationship with us. Be it always under our control and never without first entering into a data processing agreement with the data subject.

In exceptional cases we are forced to provide your data. This is particularly the case when we are legally obliged to do so or when government agencies have the right to request information from us. Your data is in principle not passed on to third countries or international organizations.


We will keep your data as long as you use our internet application and as long as we need your personal data to be able to offer you a certain service or product.

More specifically:
• Trade books: 7 years in original or electronic form with the retention period starting from 1 January of the year following the closing of the financial year. Here we follow Article III.86 of the Code of Economic Law and Article 9 of the Royal Decree of 12/09/1983 implementing the law of 17/07/1975 on the accounting of the company.
• Justifying documents: 7 years in original or electronic form with the retention period starting after the closing of the financial year. Here we follow Article II.86 of the Code of Economic Law.

For this processing, we take the appropriate technical and organizational measures to optimally protect your data, taking into account the nature of the data and the associated risks. We do not store any special personal data and have the following measures in place for the security of your data:

• The computers on which data are processed are protected as standard with a user name and a complex password.

• All computers are equipped with a Small Office Security solution, which of course is always kept “up-to-date” and automatically performs multiple scans. All Windows installations are automatically updated. The installation is checked at least once a month and possibly started manually.

• The data is stored on a part of the disk that is set up as a “data safe.” This is encrypted and can only be accessed after starting up the computers + Windows logon + opening the safe using Kaspersky and a long and complex password.

• To prevent data loss in the event of loss of computers, we make daily backups to an encrypted cloud environment.

• The data is first compressed, then encrypted with at least AES256 bit key and this form is stored at the off-site location. The responsible for the backups cannot read data in this way as the encryption key is only known by us and stored in a special “password manager”.

• All passwords are managed by Kaspersky password manager and stored in the cloud environment.

• Our employees are fully informed about the safe handling of your personal data and are held to confidentiality by their employment contract.

• No data is kept on paper due to the possibility of online registration and cannot be accessed by unauthorized persons.

The past teaches us that no risk is completely avoided and if we are aware of unauthorized access to our IT systems or unauthorized modification, damage or possible loss of your data, we will immediately take all necessary measures to reduce this risk to a minimum and to avoid in the future. As a result, the possible damage for you will remain very limited.
