Digital Responsibility

The “Digital Responsibility” chapter covers the material topics of digital participation, information security , and data privacy.

United Internet’s aim is to enable everyone to participate in the digitalization process, and to ensure that they can do this securely.

As an internet specialist, United   Internet is laying the foundations for the digital transformation of the economy and society. The Group aims to enable everyone to participate in the digitalization process, and to that they can do this securely and accessibly. From an information security and data privacy perspective, the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of information have top priority. United   Internet considers data privacy to be an inalienable basic right. In line with this, enabling customers to decide for themselves just how their data should be handled and protected is part of United   Internet’s DNA.

The material topics discussed in this chapter are closely linked to the individual segments’ business models. For this reason, the management board members for the segments concerned are directly responsible for digital responsibility.
