Hi @Elodie,

First of all a warm welcome to the community! :)

I am not sure which criteria need to be fulfilled in order for it to be called “digital safe”.
As we deal with very sensitive data, we do have a very strict data protection management in the tool itself as well as in the organisation Personio. Our practices are based on the legal framework of the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), or stricter, as well as common standards and guidelines such as ISO/IEC 27001 and the principles of basic IT protection (“IT-Grundschutz”) of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

Here you find more details on the different certificates that Personio has gotten and how exactly the data is stored and processed.

To upload the payslips in Personio, you can use the Multi-Upload functionality. Via the employee roles you can regulate the access rights on the regarding document category.
Please also note that in the future we are extending also our Payroll Integrations internationally, so it is worth checking our Marketplace in a couple of weeks. With an integration it might be possible to import the payslips right of the payroll tool in Personio as it is possible with Datev for German customers. (Datev is a common Payroll Provider in Germany)

Could I help you with my answer? :)
