The DPZ's E-Mail system is exclusively intended for official purposes of the DPZ. The central IT administration of the DPZ uses firewalls, antivirus software and other security systems to protect the DPZ IT. Incoming and outgoing E-Mail are automatically checked for potentially dangerous content and, if necessary, such E-Mail will be rejected by the system. It is possible for the DPZ to access individual E-Mail communications manually and in accordance with clear internal rules, or for third parties (e.g. law enforcement authorities) to be given access to a possible exclusive clarification of a specific event. This could also include your communication with employees of our company.
In order to meet the legal requirements, the DPZ can implement a central mail archiving system in which E-Mails are archived in regular cycles and stored for 11 years. Law enforcement agencies are allowed access to these archived E-Mails to the specific extent of a judicial search warrant or through an order by the authorities.
