About us


The German Arbitration Institute (DIS) takes the protection of your personal data seriously. This Privacy Policy describes why and how we process personal data we collect in connection with the DIS membership services as well as through our website.

Current information about Brexit

Following the UK's withdrawal from the EU (Brexit) and in accordance with the Christmas Eve trade deal, as of January 1, 2021, the UK will be subject to the same data protection law for a further period of maximum six months. This means that transmissions to the UK will continue to be possible for the time being under the previous conditions. It remains to be seen whether the EU Commission will issue an adequacy decision on the level of data protection in the UK by the end of the aforementioned period.


The DIS is the entity responsible for the data processing activities described in this Privacy Policy, also known as the “data controller.” If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, our Arbitration Privacy Policy or our privacy practices, please do not hesitate to contact us:
