The EU General Data Protection Regulation, which comes into force on May 25, 2018, is a regulation of the European Union that unifies the rules for the processing of personal data by private companies and public bodies in the EU. This is intended to ensure the protection of personal data as a whole within the EU. I, Volker Pohl, take the protection of your personal data very first. I process your personal data in accordance with the applicable legal requirements for the purposes listed below.
2. Purpose of processing
On behalf of my customers, I carry out employer certification based on Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A – Personnel Qualification and Certification in Nondestructive Testing for NDT personnel. In this context, I am also responsible for the training with an examination.A certification is the confirmation that a person fulfills the requirements of a certification program (written practice on the above-mentioned basis). I collect, process and store personal data to issue a certificate and to document the certification requirements, training and testing.
3. Legal basis
The legal bases for the processing of personal data result from:
• Consent of the data subjects according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. A) GDPR

Complaints may be recorded on a personal basis, that means the complainant’s surname and first name are processed and stored. All complaints are checked internally and not passed on to third parties.
