Under the terms of data protection law, a data processing situation exists if your AEB solution contains personal data (e.g. contact information of business partners or of your users) and if access by AEB (employees) cannot be ruled out. In this case, a Data Processing Agreement must be concluded with AEB. All information on data protection at AEB (data protection documents, data processing agreements, data security at AEB, other materials such as deletion concept, standard contractual clauses, data protection certificate) can be found in the AEB Trust Center.
