Collection of personal data

The Döhle Group processes personal data about contacts (potential and existing clients, professional advisors, service providers and intermediaries) using a customer relationship management system (“Döhle CRM”).

The personal data collected about contacts by us will include name, employer name, contact title, phone, email and other business contact details.

Use of personal data
