Law/Patents - Law (general) / GDPR
German term or phrase: Fakten erfüllen
Context: "Um die Fakten zu erfüllen und zu bewerten, wenden Sie sich bitte direkt an Headquarter HR & Legal".

The previous sentence is talking about what to do in the event of data protection breaches and the following sentence is asking the reader to prepare answers to a list of questions (presumably as a checklist for when a security breach occurs) - the document is an appendix to a company's new data protection guideline.

English translation:take appropriate action/meet the appropriate requirements
Explanation:
"In order to take all necessary action and evaluate it, please contact Headquarter HR & Legal directly."

I am pretty sure that in this context Fakten are steps or measures they are expected to take or to have taken (erfüllen)under existing protocols. A quick search of German sources also suggests that this has to do with requirements (Fakten) or expectations that have to be met (erfüllen).
