Data protection

Evonik ensures a uniform and appropriate level of data protection throughout the Group.

Evonik uses methods of electronic data inter-change for its own business purposes and for future innovative applications. At the same time, Evonik is aware of the associated risks. When handling personal data on employees and business partners, Evonik therefore protects and respects the personal rights and privacy of the people concerned. That is based on a uniform Group-wide standard.

Employees may only collect, use and process data that relate to or could relate to individuals in accordance with the principles of lawfulness, transparency and proportionality. In addition, employees may only collect, use and process data to the extent that this is absolutely necessary (data minimization).

"We respect the personal rights 
 and privacy of employees 
 and business partners when handling 
 personal data."
