What data do we collect?

Below is an overview of the data we may collect:

  • De-identified and non-identifiable information that you provide during the registration process or that is collected through the use of our Services ("Non-Personal Information"). Non-personal information does not allow conclusions to be drawn about who collected it. Non-personal information that we collect consists primarily of technical and aggregated usage information.

  • Individually identifiable information, i.e. any information that identifies you or could be reasonably identified ("Personal Information"). The personal information we collect through our Services may include information requested from time to time, such as names, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and more. If we combine personal information with non-personal information, we will treat it as personal information as long as it is combined.


How do we collect data?

The following are the main methods we use to collect data:


  • We collect information when you use our services. Therefore, when you visit our digital assets and use services, we may collect, record, and store usage, sessions, and related information.

  • We collect information that you provide to us yourself, for example, when you contact us directly through a communication channel (e.g., an email with a comment or feedback).

  • We may collect information from third-party sources as described below.

  • We collect information that you provide to us when you log in to our services through a third-party provider, such as Facebook or Google.


Why do we collect this data?

We may use your information for the following purposes:


  • to provide and operate our services;

  • to develop, customize, and improve our Services;

  • to respond to your feedback, requests and requests, and to offer assistance;

  • to analyze demand and usage patterns;

  • for other internal, statistical and research purposes;

  • to improve our data security and fraud prevention capabilities;

  • to investigate violations and enforce our terms and policies, and to comply with applicable law, regulations, and/or government orders;

  • To provide you with updates, news, promotional materials, and other information related to our Services. In the case of promotional emails, you can decide for yourself whether you want to continue to receive them. If not, just click on the unsubscribe link in those emails.


Who do we share this information with?

We may share your information with our service providers in order to operate our services (e.g., storing data through third-party hosting services, providing technical support, etc.).


We may also disclose your information in the following circumstances: (i) to investigate, detect, prevent, or take action against unlawful activity or other misconduct; (ii) to establish or exercise our rights of defense; (iii) to protect our rights, property, or personal safety, as well as the safety of our users or the public; (iv) in the event of a change of control of us or any of our affiliates (by way of a merger, acquisition or purchase (substantially) of all assets, among other things); (v) to collect, maintain and/or manage your information through authorized third-party service providers (e.g., cloud service providers) as appropriate for a business purpose; (vi) to work with third parties to improve your user experience. For the avoidance of doubt, we would like to point out that we may, at our sole discretion, transfer or disclose non-personal data to third parties or otherwise use it.


Please note that our Services allow for social interactions (e.g., publicly posting content, information, and comments, and chatting with other users). Please note that any content or data you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by other people. We do not recommend posting or sharing information with others that you do not want to make public. If you upload or otherwise make available content to our digital assets as part of your use of a Service, you do so at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users or members of the public with access to your data or content. You acknowledge and hereby acknowledge that copies of your data may remain available even after they have been deleted from cached and archived pages or after a copy/storage of your content has been made by a third party.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

When you visit or access our Services, we authorize third parties to use web beacons, cookies, pixel tags, scripts, and other technologies and analytics services ("Tracking Technologies"). These tracking technologies may allow third parties to automatically collect your data in order to improve the browsing experience on our digital assets, optimize their performance and ensure a tailored user experience, as well as for security and fraud prevention purposes.


To learn more, please read our Cookie Policy.


We will not share your email address or other personal information with advertisers or ad networks without your consent.

Where do we store the data?

Non-personal data

Please note that our companies, as well as our trusted partners and service providers, are located all over the world. For the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, we store and process any non-personal information we collect in different jurisdictions.

Personal data

Personal information may be maintained, processed, and stored in the United States, Ireland, South Korea, Taiwan, Israel, and to the extent required for the proper provision of our Services and/or by law (as further explained below) in other jurisdictions.

How long will the data be retained?

Please note that we retain the information we collect for as long as necessary to provide our services, comply with our legal and contractual obligations to you, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We may correct, amend or delete inaccurate or incomplete information at any time at our sole discretion.

How do we protect the data?

The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services to you. Your data may be stored through our hosting provider's data storage, databases, and general applications. It stores your data on secure servers behind a firewall, and it provides secure HTTPS access to most areas of its services.


Notwithstanding the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of the information you upload, post or otherwise disclose to us or others.

For this reason, we would like to ask you to set strong passwords and, if possible, not to provide us or others with confidential information that you believe could cause you significant or lasting harm if disclosed. In addition, since email and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we ask that you do not share confidential information through any of these communication channels.

How do we deal with minors?

The Services are not intended for users who have not yet reached the legal age of majority. We will not knowingly collect information from children. If you are under the age of majority, you should not download or use the Services or provide any information to us.


We reserve the right to request proof of age at any time so that we can verify that minors are using our services. In the event that we become aware that a minor is using our Services, we may prohibit and block such users from accessing our Services, and we may delete any data we hold about that user. If you have reason to believe that a minor has provided information to us, please contact us as explained below.


We will only use your personal data for the purposes set out in the Privacy Policy and only if we are satisfied that:


  • the use of your personal data is necessary to perform or enter into a contract (e.g. to provide you with the services itself or customer care or technical support);

  • the use of your personal data is necessary to comply with relevant legal or regulatory obligations, or

  • the use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (provided that this is done at all times in a manner that is proportionate and respects your data protection rights).


As an EU resident, you can:

  • request confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed and request access to your stored personal data as well as certain additional information;

  • request to receive personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format;

  • request the rectification of your personal data held by us;

  • request the erasure of your personal data;

  • object to our processing of your personal data;

  • request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, or

  • lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.


Please note, however, that these rights are not fully applicable and may be subject to our own legitimate interests and regulatory requirements. If you have general questions about the personal information we collect and how we use it, please contact us as indicated below.


In the course of providing the Services, we may transfer data across borders to affiliates or other third parties and from your country/jurisdiction to other countries/jurisdictions worldwide. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of your data outside the EEA.

If you are a resident of the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred to locations outside the EEA if we are satisfied that an adequate or comparable level of protection of personal data exists. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that we have appropriate contractual arrangements in place with our third parties to ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place so that the risk of unlawful use, alteration, deletion, loss or theft of your personal data is minimised and that such third parties act in accordance with applicable laws at all times.

If you are using the Services as a California resident, you may be subject to a California Consumer Privacy Act. "CCPA") to request access to and deletion of your information.


To exercise your right to access and delete your information, please see below how to contact us.


We do not sell users' personal information for the purposes and purposes of the CCPA.


Users of the Services who are California residents and under the age of 18 may request and obtain deletion of their posted content by email at the address provided in the "Contact Us" section below. These requests must all be marked "California Removal Request." All requests must include a description of the content that you wish to delete and sufficient information to help us locate the material. We will not accept communications that are not flagged or properly transmitted, and we may not be able to respond if you do not provide sufficient information. Please note that your request does not ensure that the material will be completely or comprehensively deleted. For example, material posted by you may be republished or reposted by other users or third parties.

Updates or Changes to the Privacy Policy

We may, at our sole discretion, revise this Privacy Policy from time to time, but the version published on the Website will always be current (see "Status").

Google Fonts


We use the service on our website.

The service allows us to use external fonts. For this purpose, when you access our website, the required font is loaded from your web browser into the browser cache. This is necessary so that your browser can display a visually improved display of our texts. If your browser does not support this feature, a standard font from your computer will be used for display. The integration of these fonts is carried out by a server call to a server of the provider. This transmits to the server which of our websites you have visited. The IP address of your device's browser is also stored by the provider. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected and processed by the provider through the use of the service.

We use the service for optimisation purposes, in particular to improve the use of our website for you and to make its design more user-friendly.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.
