We are aware that the society of which we are part of should never be taken for granted. We recognize our responsibility to advance our operating model to contribute to our society. This responsibility begins with small operational and technical adjustments to ensure a regulated and secure data environment and extends to our overarching direct and indirect contributions to society. Therefore, we have structured our efforts to contribute positively to society along three dimensions.
Dignity and fairness are core values for a globalized world to
function. These two values are deeply rooted in our culture.
We carry dignity and fairness throughout our internal operations, but also make them an integral part of every manufacturing contract we sign. ABOUT YOU strives to lead
by example and therefore facilitates transparency and
control for key stakeholders.
Our progress in 2020:
- Continued enhancement of our corporate governance systems according to the IDW PS 980 Standard
Increased transparency in our own label
Update of our internal culture booklet
educating on the AY values
ABOUT data privacy
Customer data and cybersecurity are under scrutiny across
all industries. This applies even more to purely digital business
models where the customer’s trust in the conscious handling of
their data sets the foundation for every buying decision.
We appreciate the trust our customers place in us. Consequently, we adhere to the highest data and security standards. All customer data is stored in an iso-certified computing centre and solely in encrypted databases. Access to these databases is strictly limited by dedicated approval and outplacement (removal of access) processes.
Our efforts in 2020:
Conduction of our annual external
Raising security awareness amongst our
colleagues via our annual company-wide
External testing of newly introduced
applications via bug bounty programs
ABOUT YOU operates in a multifaceted community of local and
international stakeholders. We are grateful for the loyal customers

We aim to impact our community in the same enriching manner it impacts us. We take action where help is needed in form of donations. We promote diversity, self-esteem and body confidence not only within the ABOUT YOU team but also in every media campaign created. We contribute to a thriving next generation through school and university events.
Our progress in 2020:

schools and charity organizations as response
Raising increased awareness for diversity and
inclusivity in our campaign productions through
bookings from different social and ethnic backgrounds, different genders, sexual
orientations, and body images
