7. Recipients of Data, Third-Country Transfers, Linked Third-Party Websites
We do use external service providers for the processing of your data and hereby want to inform you about the third parties and processors we transfer data to. We use various third-party services on our website. These have different purposes, which we will discuss in more detail in the individual descriptions. These services serve to make our website functional, secure, and visually appealing, as well as to optimise its content on an ongoing basis. In general, we transfer data to the following categories of recipients:
Billing service providers, print- and postal providers, insurances, telecommunications provider, insurance broker and subject matter experts for assessing and regulating of claims, public authorities, provided a justified request, credit institutions and payment service providers, external accountant, auditors and legal counsel.
In the case of cross border transfer (transfer to a third-country or to an international organisation) we do inform you separately about the recipient, and the correspondent legal basis. However, in the case that your data is transferred outside of the European Union either to Controllers or Processors, the transfer is justified by the Standard Contractual Clauses according to the Annex of the Commission Decision 2021/914/EU or by other safeguards.
As far as processors are being used, they are bound by our instructions under data protection law. These service providers are our contractors and assist with processing of your personal data, for example, to provide this website. These contractors have been carefully selected and authorised and are regularly monitored. The authorisations are based on agreements for processing. The processors do not perform any independent processing for their own purposes.
As processors we also use cloud service providers for the purposes of internal organisation and administration. In particular, the following purposes are pursued through the use of the service providers: Calendar organisation, document management and file exchange, text, presentation and spreadsheet processing, processing of form data from our website information. For this purpose we use services of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Further information at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy, https://cloud.google.com/security/privacy. Standard contractual clauses have been concluded between Google Ireland Ltd. and the parent company in order to guarantee a secure level of data protection in the third country USA as well.
8. Data Security
We apply technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data that is collected, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against the attack of unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. To protect your data in transit we use encryption technologies (TLS).
9. Automated Decision Making
We do not use automated decision making, including profiling.
10. Data processing when you are based in the EU/EEA, EU-Representative
When you are based in the EU/EEA, we only process data when a legal basis is available as mentioned above. For EU/EEA related data processing, in general, the following legal bases shall apply to the processing of data under our responsibility.
- The data subject’s consent for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a), Article 7 GDPR.

- The processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the above-mentioned interests, Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

B. Collection and Processing of your Personal Data when using our Website
1. Technical Provision of the Website, Hosting
For the informational use of our website, you generally do not need to actively provide personal data. Each time you use the internet, your browser is transmitting certain information which we store in so-called log files, such as:
- Date and time of retrieval of one of our web pages;
- your IP address;
- host name of the connecting device;
- the website from which our website was accessed;
- following websites that were accessed via our website;
- the page visited on our website;
- the transmitted amount of data and the access status (file transmission, file not found etc.);
- your browser type and version used;
- the operating system used.
The temporary storage of the data is necessary for the course of a website visit to enable delivery of the website. Further storage of the log files takes place in order to ensure the functionality of the website and the security of the information technology systems (especially to prevent abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks). Unless otherwise specified, your IP address will be shortened as soon as possible so that it is no longer possible to identify you. The legal basis for the temporary storage is to provide you with our website for the fulfilment of a contract or to process operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. The legal basis for further storage with a shortened IP address is our legitimate interest to protect our information technology systems. A personal evaluation of the data, in particular for marketing purposes, does not take place without prior consent.
2. Other plugins and embedded third-party content
a. Google Fonts
This website uses Google Fonts of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (Holding Company: Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Fonts is an interactive register with over 800 fonts, that Google provides free of charge.
Google Fonts is an important tool, to keep the high quality of our website. With Google Fonts we can use fonts without having to upload them to our servers. These fonts are automatically optimised for the web and there save data traffic and result in quicker loading times.
Google Fonts supports all established browsers and works reliantly on most mobile devices.
The legal basis is formed by our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of the website.
Google Fonts does not set any cookies on your device. The data is requested via the google-domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, these requests are processed separately from other services Google provides. This includes your Google account, if you have one.
Google captures the usage of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) as well as the fonts used and saves this data securely. Google stores CSS-requests for a day on their servers, which mostly are located outside of the EU. Insofar as Google Ireland Limited transfers personal data to the US parent company Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, Google guarantees by means of standard contractual clauses to maintain the EU level of data protection. Google’s goal is to improve loading time of websites by caching the fonts once and then using them again on any other website that uses Google Fonts. Next to this data, every Google Fonts request also automatically transmits data like your IP-address, language settings, screen resolution, name, and version of your browser to the Google Servers. This is necessary to ensure a correct graphical display.
On our website you can participate in surveys. When you voluntarily participate in this survey, information about the device and application you use to participate in the survey is processed. This includes IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, duration of visit, page views and navigation paths of the website or similar information.
For this purpose, we use LimeSurvey GmbH, Papenreye 63,22453 Hamburg. Weitere Informationen über die Datenverarbeitung durch LimeSurvey finden sich in den Datenschutzhinweisen unter https://www.limesurvey.org/privacy–policy
The provider processes your personal data on our behalf. The data processing in this context is based on our legitimate interest in increasing the attractiveness of our website, understanding Customer requirements, and improving target group-specific marketing.
We use your personal data to send you our newsletters and to inform you about news from our company, new services, new products, and events tailored to your interests. This includes information on current or future range of services and products as well as functions and events with participation of our company or group companies (e.g. trade fairs). To send you the newsletter, we need your e-mail address. The legal basis for the processing is your consent. We will use the personal data you provided during registration exclusively for sending our newsletter. After the registration of your e-mail address, you will receive an e-mail from us asking for you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter by clicking a link. If the confirmation by hyperlink is not given within a period of 7 days, your information will be blocked and deleted after a month. We are also entitled to keep your IP addresses, and times of registration and confirmation times to verify your registration and to appropriately clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.
We can analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail, a file contained in the e-mail (so-called web-beacon) connects to our newsletter-server. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. If you do not want any analysis, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.
The legal basis for this is your consent and the necessity for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject. The legal basis for the transfer to a third country is as well your consent. Please note that the level of EU data protection cannot be guaranteed in the third country. In particular, effective legal remedies against official access to your personal data may not exist.
Your data will be processed in an electronic newsletter system for the duration of your subscription. For this purpose and for sending the newsletter, we use the processors “HubSpot” of the provider HubSpot Ireland Ltd, One Dockland Central, Guild Street, Dublin 1, Co. Dublin, Ireland (US parent company HubSpot, Inc., 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA), and Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin, which process the data on our behalf.
Since we base our processing on your consent, this means that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time or to object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of sending the newsletter. If you do so, we will immediately remove you from our newsletter distribution list to comply with your request. You can withdraw your consent at any time by sending an e-mail to our data protection officer or by following the instructions at the end of a promotional/newsletter e-mail. If you send us an e-mail, please let us know what your withdrawal should refer to so that we can assign your request.
4. Commercial Services
In order to provide pre-contractual and contractual services, to issue invoices, for the purpose of customer support, to fulfil entrepreneurial and other legal obligations and for the purpose of internal organisation and administration, we need to process personal data provided by you. As part of the data collection process, we will inform you which categories of data are required for this purpose. These are usually contact data, payment data (type of payment, invoices, payment history), detailed data on the contract (actual service, contract term, remuneration information).
Beyond the end of the contractual services (including continuing obligations), there may be legal obligations to store your personal data. Relevant here are, in particular, retention obligations under tax and commercial law. In addition, we need to store personal data insofar as guarantee or warranty periods are running.
a. Account Registration
You may register a customer account. Registration of domain names or the use of our other commercial services is only possible if you have a registered account. You will need to provide some personal data during the registration process, which is marked with “mandatory field”. These are generally the following categories of data:
Contact Name (First Name, Last Name), Address, City, Zip Code, Country Phone number, E-Mail address
In addition, the date and time of registration and the used IP-address are stored.
If you are registering an account as a company, we furthermore collect the following data:
Company/Organisation, Tax registration number
We will use this data for identification of customers and to administer your account. Additionally, the data will be used to pre-fill your domain name registration forms when you register an account. The legal basis for the data processing is the necessity to process personal data for the fulfilment of a contract or to process operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Additionally, you may voluntarily provide further categories of data. This data will be processed for our legitimate interest of additional verification and quicker communication.
Furthermore, you will choose a User-ID and a password to log into your account. Please make sure that no unauthorised person gets access to the log-in credentials for your account.
We use various payment methods from third party payment providers. If you choose one of these payment methods, your payment data will be forwarded to the respective payment service provider for payment processing. These third-party providers process your personal data as an independent controller according to their privacy terms. The transfer is based on the fulfilment of the contract and on our legitimate interests in secure payment processing and fraud prevention.
When selecting the payment methods purchase on account and instalment purchase, in particular the following personal data is processed by us or our payment service provider as a controller for the purpose of payment processing and in this context for identity and credit checks:
- Contact and identification information: name, date of birth, national identification number, title, billing and delivery address, e-mail address, mobile phone number; nationality, salary, etc.
- Payment information: debit and credit card data (card number, expiry date and the CVV check digit), account number, etc.
- Information about the processing of the order, such as product type, product number, price, etc.
In the event that the payment method “purchase on account” or “instalment purchase” is selected, we or our payment service provider may process personal data and information about the user’s previous payment history as well as probability values for the user’s payment history in the future (so-called scoring) in order to decide whether the payment method can be offered to the user. The scoring is calculated on the basis of scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical methods.
c. Direct Marketing
We have a legitimate interest (direct advertising) in advertising customers (persons with whom we have had a business relationship) by e-mail or post. In particular, we may send you news about our company or group companies, information on events and invitations to review our services and products.
For this purpose and for sending the newsletter, we use the processors “HubSpot“, HubSpot Ireland Ltd, One Dockland Central, Guild Street, Dublin 1, Co. Dublin, Ireland (US parent company HubSpot, Inc., 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA), and Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin, which process data on our instructions.
To send you advertising by post, we use a post service partner.
You can object to the sending of advertising at any time by sending an e-mail to our data protection officer or by following the instructions at the end of a promotional e-mail. If possible, please send your e-mail from the same e-mail address you used for registration, so that we can assign you more easily.
d. Domain Query (Whois)
We offer the possibility to obtain information about certain owner data of already registered domain names. In the event of a search query, the data you enter into the search field and the categories of data listed under “log files” are processed. The legal basis for the processing is the necessity to process personal data for the fulfilment of a contract or to process operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures in connection with the domain guidelines. Search requests are deleted no later than seven days after the request.
5. Contact, CRM
You can contact us by e-mail, telephone, live chat and via our contact forms to request a quote or to conduct other correspondence.
In order to process your request, we process names, e-mail addresses, possibly the names of your company, position, mandatory information, which are absolutely necessary to create an offer. The processing of your data in the context of contact made by e-mail, a contact form or by telephone takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest to provide a good customer service or is necessary to fulfil a contract or to process operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures insofar as the contacts are related to contractual performance obligations such as the request of a dispute entry.
Contacting us for abuse and complaint messages requires users to log into their account. In addition, the categories of data listed in “log files” are processed. If you want to request a dispute entry, we also need your further contact details (last name, first name, address, name of the company) as well as a description of your request, stating the domain in question.
We will delete your contact requests immediately after processing unless statutory retention periods require continued retention. After answering your inquiry, we will archive your request immediately. Access is only possible to a very limited extent. Solely informative inquiries, i.e. which do not result in a contract or do not contain any other content that needs to be retained, will be deleted at the end of the year in which the request was made. See “Retention periods” for more information.
When you use our contact form, we also process data about your location (country and city based on IP address), data obtained from our tracking system, and data about the browser and device used. We use the “HubSpot” service of the provider HubSpot Ireland Ltd, One Dockland Central, Guild Street, Dublin 1, Co. Dublin, Ireland (US parent company HubSpot, Inc., 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA) as part of the contact form. For this purpose, we have concluded a data processing agreement with HubSpot, in which HubSpot undertakes to process data only in accordance with our instructions. We process your data based on our legitimate interests (efficient processing of requests).
As soon as the contact form is filled out, this information is linked to HubSpot’s tracking information if you have consented to this in the cookie settings at the outset. If the email address filled in the form can be linked to an existing contact, we can identify you as an existing contact. The legal basis is your consent, which can be given when you first visit the website. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future via the cookie settings.
If you apply for a job with us, we will process your personal data in accordance with the information below.
a. Person in Charge
Our company is part of the CentralNic group of companies. In this, certain departments and tasks are divided between different companies in the group.

b. Information on the application process
We process your application data in order to be able to assess whether you have the suitability, qualifications and professional performance for the position for which you are applying. For us, the legal requirements for the selection process result in particular from the General Equal Treatment Act. The legal basis for processing within the scope of the selection procedure for the establishment of employee or trainee relationships is Article 88, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR in conjunction with. § 26 (1) BDSG.
If your application documents contain special categories of personal data, e.g. information about health, religious beliefs or ethnic origin, we also base our processing on Article 9 (2) (b), Article 88 GDPR, § 26 (3) BDSG due to our legal obligations as an employer and the associated protection of your fundamental rights. In addition, we also process your information on the basis of Article 9 (2) (h) GDPR, § 26 (3) BDSG, in order to be able to take occupational health and preventive health measures, if necessary.
In the application process, we will use all the information you provide to advance your application and to check whether we can offer you a job with us. In addition, we have to fulfill our legal obligations as an employer. The provision of personal data is necessary for the lawfulness of the selection process to be carried out. The absence of relevant personal data in the application documents may result in your not being considered for the vacant position.
We will only use your contact details to contact you and inform you about the progress of the application process. We will only use other information contained in the application documents to determine your suitability for the position to be filled.
Unless otherwise stated, we process your data on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to improve content and to make it more convenient for you to use.

a. Links to Social-Media Profiles
Our website integrates links to our presences on different social media sites. This is done via a linked graphic of the respective site. This prevents an automatic transfer of data to the site. A transfer will only take place when you click the link ad, being forwarded to the respective site. The respective site will then collect information whereby the data might be processed in the USA.
The collected data includes your IP-address, time, and date and from where you clicked the link. If you are logged into your social media account of the respective site, the site operator might assign the data to your account. You can prevent this by logging out on your social media account.
The following social networks are integrated into our site by linked graphics:
Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, a subsidiary of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA.
This website uses YouTube, a service of the Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (Holding Company: Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to embed videos.
The embedding improves our online presence by enabling us to provide you with information about our company and products in an easily accessible way.
By integrating the YouTube plugin, information about the use of this website including your IP-address is collected and send to a google server located in the United States. If you are logged into your YouTube or Google account, this data will be assigned to it. Otherwise, it will be assigned to a separate Ad-ID.
We use YouTube in its advanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this means that data will only be transferred to YouTube servers when you start the video.
Insofar as Google Ireland Limited transfers personal data to the US parent company Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, Google guarantees by means of standard contractual clauses to maintain the EU level of data protection.
The legal basis is your consent. Upon the first visit to our website, we ask for your consent. Consent may be withdrawn at any time. This can be done here (link to Cookie-Settings of the website) or by deleting the cookies in your browser.
YouTube permanently stores cookies on your device. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies in the settings in your browser.
To determine which content from our website is most interesting for you we continuously measure the number of visitors and the most viewed content. Therefore, we process your personal data
- to record the number of visitors of our websites,
- to record the respective visiting times of our website visitors and
- to record the sequence of visits to different websites and product sites to optimise our website.
a. Google Search Console
On our website we use the Google Search Console tool. This service is provided by Google and allows us to make numerous settings on websites, view statistics and perform optimizations. When using Google Search Console, no personal user or tracking data is processed or transmitted to Google. You can find more information at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/4559176?hl=de .
We use the open source software tool Matomo on our website to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The software sets a cookie on the user’s computer. If individual pages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:
- Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s calling system.
- The website called up
- The website from which the user accessed the accessed website (referrer)
- The subpages accessed from the accessed website
- The time spent on the website
- The frequency with which the website is accessed
The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. A storage of the personal data of the users only takes place there. The data is not passed on to third parties. The software is set in such a way that the IP addresses are not stored completely, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer.
The processing of the users’ personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. Our legitimate interest in processing the data also lies in these purposes. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in their personal data protection is sufficiently taken into account.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes, i.e. after 4 weeks.
We offer our users the option of opting out of the analysis process on our website. To do this, you must follow the corresponding link. In this way, another cookie is set on your system, which signals to our system not to store the user’s data. If the user deletes the corresponding cookie from his own system in the meantime, he must set the opt-out cookie again.
