There are some areas on our website where you can submit information to us by uploading documents to our servers through this website or by sending us this information via email. This happens, for example, when you apply online. On our website, you also have the option of contacting D.CT via the contact forms and e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers provided there.

The processing of the personal data collected by us is solely for the effective processing of the requests sent to us.
In addition to the above data, when you use our website, we use technical tools for various functions, in particular cookies, which may be stored on your terminal device. Some of them are necessary, while others are not, but help us to improve website navigation, analyze website usage and support our marketing activities. You can consent to the use of the non-essential cookies by clicking the “OK” button or decline them by clicking the “Decline” button, as well as select only certain cookie groups (preferences, statistics, marketing) and accept them by clicking the “Allow selection” button. You can access all these cookie settings at any time and also deselect cookies subsequently at any time.
Cookies are text files or information in a database that are stored on your hard drive and associated with the browser you are using so that certain information can flow to the entity that sets the cookie. Their primary purpose is to make the user experience on a website faster and more user-friendly.
By law, we may store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other cookie types, we need your permission. This site uses different types of cookies. Some cookies are placed by third parties that appear on our pages.

Google Tag Manager
Our website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a service that allows you to manage marketed website tags through an interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not register any personal data. The tool causes other tags to be activated, which in turn may register data. Google Tag Manager does not access this information. If recording has been disabled at the domain or cookie level, this setting is retained for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent, Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.
Our website uses the cookie consent technology of CookieYes to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies in your browser and to document this in a data protection compliant manner. When you enter our website, a cookie is stored in your browser, in which the consents you have given or the revocation of these consents are stored. This data is not passed on to the provider of CookieYes. The collected data will be stored until you request us to delete it or delete the cookie yourself, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.
