To avoid misunderstandings, we would like to point out that we may transmit or disclose non-personal data to third parties at our discretion or otherwise use it.

Please note that our services enable social interactions (e.g., posting content, information, and comments publicly and chatting with other users). We would like to point out that all content or data you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by other individuals. We advise against posting or sharing information that you do not want to make public.

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 worldwide. For the purposes explained in this privacy policy, we store and process all non-personal data we collect in different jurisdictions.

How long are the data retained?

Please note that we retain the collected data for as long as necessary to provide our services, to comply with our legal and contractual obligations towards you, to settle disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We may correct, supplement, or delete incorrect or incomplete data at any time at our 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 you our services. Your data may be stored on secure servers behind a firewall and secure HTTPS access to most areas of its services.

All payment options offered by us and our hosting provider for our digital assets comply with the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) requirements of the PCI Security Standards Council. This involves the collaboration of brands such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card data (including physical, electronic, and procedural measures) by our shop and service providers.

Despite the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider for our digital assets, we cannot and will not guarantee absolute protection and absolute security of the data you upload, post, or otherwise provide to us or others.

For this reason, we ask you to set secure passwords and not to transmit confidential information to us or others via email and instant messaging. Since email and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we also ask you not to disclose confidential information via any of these communication channels.

How do we handle minors?

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

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

Personal data

We use your personal data only for the purposes specified in the privacy policy and only if we are convinced that:

  • the use of your personal data is necessary to fulfill or conclude a contract (e.g., to provide you with the services themselves or customer service 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 privacy rights).


As an EU resident, you can:

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

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

  • request the deletion of your personal data;

  • object to the processing of your personal data by us;

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

  • file a complaint with a supervisory authority.


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

In providing the services, we may transfer data internationally 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 convinced that there is an appropriate or comparable level of protection for personal data. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that we have appropriate contractual agreements with our third parties to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken to minimize the risk of unlawful use, alteration, deletion, loss, or theft of your personal data, and that these third parties at all times act in accordance with applicable laws.
