How secure is private document destruction in Berlin?

This is a good question to ask, because protecting your data is of paramount importance. Your documents, bank statements, etc. are nobody's business.

Hence, throwing your private documents into the paper recycling bin, for example, is not a good idea.

The answer to your question: A certified service provider like Haberling is very secure.

Data protection is a crucial part of our work. To this end, we consistently implement the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and DIN 66399. This applies both to businesses and your home.

Are there alternatives to collection by a service provider?

Yes, there are. You can simply visit us and deliver your documents yourself. In Berlin, this is a very popular way of destroying private documents and records even more cheaply. If you deliver your documents yourself, you can also be more flexible with your schedule. You will only need to make an appointment for organisational reasons. This will allow us to prepare all the records and hand them over to you on site.

What should you consider before destroying your private ring binders and documents?

Before you dispose of your private documents, please be careful to make sure whether you really do not need them anymore. Some documents and data may be too important to destroy or should not be destroyed until a later date.

To make it easier for you to decide which documents you can dispose of and which you still need to keep, we have put together a table with the most important data.
