SEEBURGER – The Engine to Drive Your Digital Transformation

Clarification Service

Every day companies exchange a great deal of data with external business partners in the network and supply chain management. Whereas market communication takes place via standardized, automated processes, there are no clear rules when it comes to processing clarification cases, i.e. cases where uncertainty exists as to who may send data to whom while at the same time taking legal and corporate regulations into account.

In their professional daily work employees often send data unencrypted to the recipients of their emails. As the sending of unencrypted emails containing personal data infringes on the Federal Data Protection of Germany (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz / BDSG) (appendix section 9, sentence 1) and possibly also on internal company regulations, a technological solution is required that makes it possible to send data to the recipient in a secure way.


The SEEBURGER Clarification Service ensures the secure and retraceable exchange of personal data. Our service can be used via your web browser and is easy to operate. Users can transfer large amounts of sensitive data in a way that is safe and in compliance with the law. In this way employees can initiate, manage and monitor as many data transfers with external business partners or colleagues as they wish. The unprotected exchange of personal data via email will be a thing of the past.

Application Scenarios

Aside from the secure transfer of personal data in the area of market communication, you can use this service for other scenarios that require secure data transmission channels.

  • inquiries at local government level about energy efficiency
  • inquiries at local government level about vacancy rates
  • inquiries about data cleansing
  • exchange of strategy papers
  • inspection reports (audits, technical inspections)

If you would like to use the Clarification Service for one of the abovementioned scenarios, we recommend you use the Outlook add-in, as the web portal was designed specifically for the processing of clarification cases.
