The General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is effective from the 25th May 2018. The GDPR aims to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and will replace the European Privacy Directive and national legislations accordingly.

At accelopment we welcome the arrival of the GDPR. The success of our company builds on the trust that our clients, employees and other stakeholders have in our ability to deliver the highest quality services. This includes our ability to apply a high level of data protection and security in relation to personal data that our customers, employees and third parties entrust to us.

accelopment considers it not just its duty to comply with national and international data protection regulations, but also to do this by applying the same standards, processes and procedures in a cohesive and comprehensive manner. This allows us to deliver the transparency, predictability and consistency that our stakeholders continue to expect from us.


Being an ISO 9001 compliant organisation, we have a comprehensive industry leading quality management system in place to assure a high level for security and compliance within our internal processes.

Processing of customer personal data

We do not process personal data on behalf of the Customer without without the freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous consent of a person and notify relevant authorities immediately in case of data regulation breaches.

Data protection and security

For security purposes we have a legitimate interest as a Data controller in the processing of the personal data of our visitors accessing the datacenter. Our visitors are required to register personal data (Visitor Personal Data) at the entrance, and, where fingerprint readers are part of our access management system, provide fingerprints. In addition, the general access areas and the customer areas are controlled and secured by CCTV recordings. Visitor Personal Data is processed in compliance with the applicable GDPR principles. Amongst other things, this means that Visitor Personal Data shall not be kept longer than strictly necessary for security compliance purposes or as required by local law.

GDPR Implementation

accelopment AG is fully GDPR compliant since 25 May 2018 and have all required policies, processes and procedures in place.
