Privacy of Information

The Carsten Greiwe Chartered Accountant Office is pleased that you have visited our website and are interested in us and our services. It is important to us to protect your personal data during handling throughout the entire business process. We want you to feel secure when you visit our Internet pages.
In the following, we explain what information we collect when you visit our website and how this information is used.

Personal data

Personal data is specific information about personal or factual characteristics relating to a certain natural person or a natural person who can be specified. This includes information such as your real name, address, telephone number and date of birth. Information which cannot be directly linked to your real identity - such as favourite websites or number of users of a site - is not considered personal data.

Collection and processing of personal data

When you visit our web pages, our web servers always temporarily save for security purposes the connection data of the computer connecting to our site, a list of the web pages that you visit within our site, the date and duration of your visit, the identification data of the type of browser and operation system used as well as the website through which you linked to our site. Additional personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address is not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, survey, competition, fulfilment of contract or an information request.

Utilisation and passing on of personal data

We use the personal data which you have made available to us exclusively for technical administration of the web pages and to fulfil your wishes and requests -thus primarily for fulfilment of a contract concluded with you or to answer your request. We do not share, sell, transfer or otherwise disseminate your personal data to third parties, unless this is required for the purpose of the contract or unless you have given express consent to do so (i.e. for the use of the client centre).

Use of cookies

Our web pages do not usually use cookies. Only in exceptional cases are so-called session cookies deposited in your browser's memory in order to store data needed for technical guidance of the session. This data is not personal in nature and is deleted when you close your browser at the latest. If we should need to save personal data on a cookie in exceptional cases, we will request your express permission to do so in advance.
We would furthermore like to point out that browsers usually offer functions for administration of cookies.


The Carsten Greiwe Chartered Accountant Office takes all of the necessary technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from being lost or misused. For instance, your data is saved in a secure operating environment which is not accessible to the public.
Should you wish to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information sent cannot be guaranteed. The contents of e-mail messages can be read by third parties. We therefore recommend you send us confidential information only by post or password-protected files.

Right to information

Upon written request, we will inform you what personal data (e.g. name, address) we have saved on you.


If you have questions in regard to the processing of your personal data, please our data protection officer. She is also available to help with information requests, take suggestions or handle complaints.
