Privacy Policy

We take the protection and security of our employee, business partner and customer data seriously. We have therefore introduced strict data protection policies and procedures and have taken measures to meet the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), local laws and regulations. On 25 May 2018, a new framework directive on data protection at ADG in Germany (implementing the GDPR) therefore also came into force.

Data protection at ADG Apotheken-Dienstleistungsgesellschaft mbH 

ADG along with its subsidiaries has long appointed data protection officers who are responsible for monitoring compliance with all relevant data protection regulations.

ADG has developed tailor-made data protection training modules for its employees, both to raise awareness of this important topic and to ensure that all employees are aware of their responsibilities.
