New harmonized data protection legislation, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in the EU on May 25. EU citizens will have more rights over their data. Here we provide a summary of how Deutsche Telekom protects your data and what customers need to know.
Tip 1: Sit back and relax
We have made all the necessary changes for you automatically. All existing contracts and agreements will remain valid. You do not have to do anything.
Tip 2: Rest assured, - you can leave it all to us
We will let you know how your data is stored and processed from the time contracts are signed.
Tip 3: View which of your data we store
We have reformulated our Data Protection Notice to provide a clear and understandable description of which of your data we process. Whether personal data, or data generated when you surf the Internet or use SmartHome, you can always get an overview of the data Deutsche Telekom holds about you. Comprehensive information about data transparency is available at “Your data at Deutsche Telekom”.
Tip 4: Contact our info service by telephone
Call the toll free number 0800 330 98 98 to hear the Data Protection Notice read aloud (in German).

By the way: This is how Deutsche Telekom got ready for the GDPR
Data protection was a priority for Deutsche Telekom long before the GDPR came into force. An international project team has been working to implement the new rules since 2016. We have been working hard to adapt our systems and processes for you and significantly enhanced our data protection as a result. You can find more information here and in the Group Privacy Activity report 2017.
