Data Protection Policy

Data protection

We have written this privacy statement (version 27.12.2020-311244709) to explain to you, in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, what information we collect, how we use data and what choices you have as a visitor to this website. Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.

Automatic data storage

Nowadays, when you visit websites, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website. When you visit our website, as you are doing right now, our web server (the computer on which this website is stored) automatically stores data such as

As a rule, web server log files are stored for a fortnight and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful behaviour.

Storage of personal data

Personal data that you provide to us electronically on this website, such as your name, e-mail address, address or other personal details when submitting a form or commenting on the blog, together with the time and IP address, will only be used by us for the stated purpose, kept secure and not passed on to third parties.

We therefore only use your personal data to communicate with those visitors who expressly request contact and to process the services and products offered on this website. We do not disclose your personal data without your consent, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be accessed in the event of unlawful conduct.

If you send us personal data by e-mail - thus away from this website - we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data by e-mail without encryption.

According to Article 6(1)(a) DSGVO (lawfulness of processing), the legal basis is that you give us consent to process the data you have entered. You can revoke this consent at any time - an informal e-mail is sufficient.

Rights according to the General Data Protection Regulation

According to the provisions of the GDPR, you are generally entitled to the following rights:

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have been violated in any other way, you can contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).

Evaluation of visitor behaviour

In the following data protection declaration, we inform you whether and how we evaluate data from your visit to this website. The analysis of the collected data is generally anonymous and we cannot draw any conclusions about your person from your behaviour on this website. You can find out more about how to object to this analysis of your visit data in the following data protection declaration.

TLS encryption with https

We use https to transmit data in a tap-proof manner on the Internet (data protection by technical design Article 25(1) DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognise the use of this data transmission protection by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our internet address.

IONOS WebAnalytics privacy policy

On our website we use the analysis tool IONOS WebAnalytics of the German company 1&1 IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Straße 57, 56410 Montabaur, Germany. The tool helps us to analyse our website and data is also collected and stored for this purpose. However, this tool does not collect any data that could identify you as a person. Nevertheless, in this privacy statement we would like to inform you in more detail about data processing and storage and also explain why we use IONOS WebAnalytics.

What is IONOS WebAnalytics?

IONOS WebAnalytics is, as the name suggests, a tool used to analyse our website. The software programme collects data such as how long you stay on our website, which buttons you click or from which other websites you have found us. This gives us a good overview of user behaviour on our website. All this information is anonymous. This means that we do not identify you as a person through this data, but only receive general usage information and statistics.

Why do we use IONOS WebAnalytics on our website?

Our aim is to provide you with the best possible experience on our website. We are confident in what we offer and want our website to be a helpful and useful place for you. To do this, we need to tailor our website to your needs and concerns as much as possible. With a web analytics tool such as IONOS WebAnalytics and the resulting data, we can improve our website to this end. The data can also help us to design advertising and marketing measures more individually. With all these web analyses, however, we are still concerned about the protection of personal data. Unlike other analysis tools, IONOS WebAnalytics does not store or process any data that could identify you as a person.

What data is stored by IONOS WebAnalytics?

Data is collected and stored by log files or by a so-called pixel. A pixel is a snippet of JavaScript code that loads a collection of functions that can be used to track user behaviour. WebAnalytics deliberately avoids the use of cookies. IONOS does not store any personal data about you. When you request a page, your IP address is transmitted, but then immediately anonymised and processed in such a way that you cannot be identified as a person. The following data is stored by IONOS WebAnalytics: The data is not passed on to any third-party providers and is only used for statistical evaluations.

How long and where is the data stored?

The data is stored until the contract between IONOS WebAnalytics and us expires. The data is stored in our log directory in the case of a regular web hosting tariff and graphical statistics are generated from it. These logs are deleted every 8 weeks. In the case of a MyWebsite tariff, the data is determined via a pixel. In this case, the data is only stored and processed within IONOS WebAnalytics.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

In principle, you have the right to information, correction or deletion and restriction of the processing of your personal data at any time. You can also revoke your consent to the processing of data at any time. However, since no personal data is stored or processed via IONOS WebAnalytics and it is therefore not possible to assign you as a person, there is also no option to delete such data.

We hope we have been able to provide you with the most important information about the truly economical data processing of IONOS WebAnalytics. If you want to learn more about the tracking service, we recommend that you read the company's privacy policy at
