The privacy of you and your customers is important to us.

By using our services, access data is created. Since this data may allow personal identification (for example, via the IP address), we also treat this data under the principle of data avoidance and minimization. This includes direct anonymization and a short storage time. We use this anonymous access data solely for billing purposes, to detect and prevent illegal use and to improve our services.

After fulfillment of contract, your data will be blocked from any further usage. Upon the expiry of the period set by German commercial and tax regulations for data retention, this data will be deleted, unless you have agreed explicitly to its further usage.
