How Dieter works
"Click by click" to GDPR compliance.
- Making your business GDPR compliant is not a state, it's a process.
- With Dieter, you lead this process and decide when and where you want to take time for "data protection". Take care of the most urgent issues first and then let Dieter guide you through all other requirements.
- Just 5 minutes per week is enough to accomplish a partial task and position your company for long-term data protection compliance.
Did you know?
All companies must comply with the requirements of the GDPR. This applies regardless of the number of employees and thus even to sole proprietors and solo self-employed. With Dieter, you don't have to worry anymore. We take care of everything you need to fulfill your legal obligation.
Warning letters due to GDPR violations have increased steadily in recent years. This is exemplified by the numerous warnings for the GDPR-compliant use of Google Fonts in the summer of 2022. Irrespective of the fact that some of these warnings were not lawful, they were based on a decision by the LG Munich in January 2022. In addition, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled at the end of 2022 that consumer associations are generally entitled to issue warnings for a GDPR violation. These (and other) court decisions suggest further waves of warning letters. These can affect all companies that do not take care of their legal obligations.
A GDPR-compliant website is the first step in effectively protecting yourself from warning letters. In 2022, there were already countless warnings due to the unlawful use of Google fonts. Dieter not only takes care of your data protection concerns, but also creates your legal notice.
In Germany, around 85% of all German companies were victims of a cyber attack in 2022. Each affected company incurred average costs of around €20,000 per incident. In addition, around 20% of customers terminate their contracts with affected companies or delete their accounts. Implementing mandatory technical and organizational measures (TOMs) alone significantly reduces the risk of being affected.
Almost all German companies use services from companies (Google, Microsoft, Meta, Amazon, etc.) with which an international data protection contract (SCC/JC) must be concluded. In addition, digital service providers necessarily "receive" personal data from their clients for the service they offer. In these cases, it is imperative to check whether and with whom so-called order processing agreements (AVVs) must be concluded. Dieter takes over this check and also always provides the correct contract.
79% of Internet users are afraid of "data misuse". And quite rightly so! Because since 2022, personal data has been legally equivalent to a currency. Awareness of this is growing all the time. This data should be just as secure as a bank account. And that is what the implementation of the GDPR ensures.
More than 2/3 of the participants in a study on "Consumer data and data protection" (commissioned by McKinsey & Company) stated that they would no longer want to be a customer of or work with a company that does not protect their data or passes it on without a legal basis. It also proves that responsible handling of personal data and compliance with all legal obligations is a clear competitive advantage.
It refers to the fact that every person has the right to determine for themselves what personal (and therefore very private) data about them is collected, stored and used. It also provides the opportunity to prevent abuse, fraud and discrimination. Data protection is thus an essential component of the (fundamental) right to informational self-determination under the German Basic Law. This right protects the privacy, identity and freedom of every person and is therefore essential for a democratic society. Respecting it should be a matter of course for every company.
What our customers say
"I felt Dieter's orientation towards the concrete needs of self-employed people and smaller companies from the very first steps of the work. This solution exactly meets my requirements as well as my level of knowledge and ultimately the time I can and want to spend."
"By translating the legal requirements into understandable language, we can easily retrieve all the necessary information. With Dieter, we have found the right solution for our company and generated a high level of legal certainty."
"Despite my focus on craftsmanship, customer data keeps me busy every day in the form of telephone numbers, billing and mail addresses. In addition, online business is also taking up more and more space. Therefore, I want the assurance that I am protected in case of doubt should one of my communication channels be breached under data protection law."
"Data protection should be implementable for every company! Without prior knowledge, affordable and with a small investment of time. That's exactly what this service offers."

Book your privacy journey now and check in with Dieter.
Sometimes you just want to unstrap your backpack and head off on an adventure. You pack up and see what happens. It is often unclear when you arrive where and how. In this case, that's not a problem either. The journey itself is the destination.
However, on your journey to meet all data protection requirements, this "backpack strategy" is not recommended. You should know exactly which stages to take and when.
We plan your trip like a good travel agency. All inclusive, of course. Dieter takes the role of your guide and accompanies you from the beginning. This may sound a bit boring. But do you really want to experience an adventure with an uncertain outcome?
DIETER was developed by a lawyer and data protection officer, a UX designer and business economist as well as a data scientist and full-stack web developer.
In addition to a long-standing friendship, we are connected by an increasing number of inquiries on data protection issues and thus a clear realization: Existing solutions are very time-consuming and cost-intensive and still usually do not deliver satisfactory results.
Principles of simply Legal GmbH
We are convinced that all people should spend as much time as possible in their lives on "activities of pleasure". Meeting the legal requirements of the GDPR is certainly not one of them for most. That's why we work to keep this (necessary and) annoying part as small as possible for our customers.
Every individual is often capable of much more than he or she gives himself or herself credit for. We can make a small contribution to the empowerment of the individual by breaking through the sovereignty principle of so-called legal experts. A large part of (data protection) law can be automated and can be mastered by anyone without prior knowledge.
The new digital contract law (Section 312 (1a) and Section 327 (3) of the German Civil Code) equates the transfer of personal data for supposedly free online services with a monetary payment. This means a legal equation of money and data. Your money should be as safe as possible. So should your data.
We rethink "law" and therefore look for the simplest solution to meet all data protection requirements. In this way, our customers achieve GDPR-compliant processes in the long term and can start with the real "pain points". The level of data protection in each company builds up piece by piece. Our customers receive fundamentally effective protection against penalties from day one.
