In the case of data leaks or security incidents the information is always provided to the contractor (contact person), regardless of whether or not the the incident is subject to the notification obligations by legislation.

The target of Hydroll security measures is to ensure the availability of information and information systems, to ensure the confidentiality of information, ensure data integrity and minimize any damage caused by possible deviations. Safeguards are based on a risk assessment and controls are proportioned to the potential consequences of the risk. The processing of personal data and the protection measures are in line with the requirements of current data protection legislation.
