To protect against the various threats to our IT - e.g. by malware, hacker attacks, spam - and intellectual property, different procedures are used in which the information exchanged is checked for viruses, for example, and the connection data for anomalies. When anomalies are discovered, the relevant documents and connection data can be analysed.

In order to comply with existing delivery and payment restrictions - such as companies and persons listed in various government lists - the existing employee data can be compared with this list.

In addition, the transmission of personal Data and documents may be necessary in certain suspected cases, which are for example reported via the compliance hotline, to support an investigation by the authorities and to prepare a defense against claims directed at LOI Thermprocess GmbH.
