Privacy policy

This privacy policy applies to the website of group AB (hereinafter referred to as group one) which can be accessed under the domain


Data protection is a high priority for the group one. Ultimately, however, it is unfortunately the case that hardly anyone is likely to read through all this 'data protection stuff'. It's really all about trust. You don't want to be surprised unexpectedly. We make this need, along with your other goals that you want to achieve with our products, the starting point of our actions.

The use of group one's websites is generally possible without any indication of personal data. Only your IP address is processed by the web server for the duration of your visit. This is a technical necessity and therefore unavoidable. The processing of personal data becomes necessary when services are used via our website.

For the processing of all other personal data, we generally obtain your consent if there is no other legal basis for such processing.

The processing of personal data is always in accordance with the Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the applicable country-specific data protection provisions. By means of this privacy policy, we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we process. Furthermore, you will be informed in this privacy notice about the rights you are entitled to under the GDPR.

group one has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of your personal data. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.


The responsible party within the meaning of the GDPR and other national data protection laws of the Member States and other data protection provisions is: Group AB

We have integrated the consent management tool "consentmanager" ( of consentmanager AB (Håltgelvågen 1b, 72348 Västerås, Sweden, on our website to request consent for data processing or the use of cookies or comparable functions. You have the possibility with the help of "consentmanager" to give or refuse your consent for certain functionalities of our website, e.g. for the purpose of integration of external elements, integration of streaming content, statistical analysis, reach measurement and personalized advertising. You can use "consentmanager" to give or reject your consent for all functions or to give your consent for individual purposes or individual functions. The settings you have made can also be changed by you afterwards. The purpose of integrating "consentmanager" is to allow users of our website to decide on the aforementioned matters and, in the course of their continued use of our website, to offer them the opportunity to change settings they have already made. In the course of using "consentmanager", personal data as well as information of the end devices used, such as the IP address, are processed.

Security measures

We ensure an adequate level of protection for your data. To this end, we take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope and purposes of the processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

SSL encryption

Our websites use SSL encryption. This encryption is used, for example, for requests that you send to us via our websites. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated for corresponding activities on your side. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: the display in your browser address bar shows "https://". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. 

IP address shortening

If it is possible for us or if it is not necessary to store the IP address, we will shorten your IP address or have it shortened. In the case of IP address shortening, also known as "IP masking", the last octet, i.e. the last two numbers of an IP address, are deleted (in this context, the IP address is an identifier individually assigned to an Internet connection by the online access provider). The purpose of shortening the IP address is to prevent or make it significantly more difficult to identify a person by their IP address. 

TLS encryption

Primarily, when transmitting data, we try to establish an encrypted communication path according to current security standards (e.g. TLS encryption), if supported by the other party.

We use communication channels for our internal communication according to current standards (e.g. TLS encryption, VPN).

In addition, the products booked by customers, hopefully including you, must be explicitly activated via encrypted transmission.


If you wish to contact us (e.g. by contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), your information will be processed to the extent necessary to respond to your inquiry and any requested action.

The response to a contact request in the context of contractual or pre-contractual relationships is made to fulfill our contractual obligations or to respond to (pre)contractual inquiries and otherwise on the basis of our legitimate interest in responding to the inquiries.

We are a group one company and as such we use the customer support of our 100% subsidiaries, see, in addition to our own customer support to answer customer support requests. So if you write emails to our service addresses or call our customer support, these requests will also be answered by our colleagues of the mentioned brands. Accordingly, the colleagues of these brands also have access to your data. Otherwise, they would not be able to answer your inquiry.

Contact form & e-mail

We offer a contact form on our website so that you can contact us with questions about us, our website and other inquiries. In addition, you can contact us by e-mail.

With the following information we inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the described procedures.

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Your name and e-mail address will be stored in order to enable the delivery of the newsletter. In the case of our existing customers, we reserve the right to provide them with information on similar products to those already sold in our newsletter, provided they have not objected to this procedure (Section 7 (3) UWG).  If the contents of the newsletter are specifically described in the course of registration, these are decisive for your consent. In addition, our newsletters contain information about products and services in the area of domains, hosting and web presences.

For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by you as the owner of your e-mail address, we use the "double opt-in" procedure. For this purpose, we log the registration for the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the response requested herewith. Further data is not collected.

Use of shipping service providers - sendinblue

Since operating a larger e-mail newsletter is anything but technically trivial, we use a technical service provider where the processing and use of the data takes place. We chose a service provider that is able to carry out mailings to numerous e-mail recipients and recipient groups in a technically variable and, above all, secure manner. Price was an issue in the selection process, but not a decisive factor. We placed particular emphasis on the issue of 'data security' during the selection process. We looked at a number of providers. Unfortunately, this was sobering.

After this careful research we decided to use the service 'sedinblue' of Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin;


Privacy policy:

Insofar as we use a dispatch service provider, the dispatch service provider may, according to its own information, use this data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assigning it to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address them itself or to pass them on to third parties.

Registration data: To register for the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to enter a name in order to address you personally in the newsletter.

Performance measurement - The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the servers of the dispatch service provider when the newsletter is opened. In the course of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of our services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor that of the dispatch service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

The dispatch of the newsletter and the measurement of its success are based on the consent of the recipients pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.

The logging of the registration process is based on our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and serves as proof of consent to receive the newsletter.

You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.


Types of data processed:

  • Inventory data (e.g. name, organization, product),
  • Contact data (email address),
  • Meta/communication data (IP address, country).

Data subjects:

  • Newsletter subscribers
  • Existing customers

Purposes of processing:

  • Direct marketing (e.g., via e-mail or postal mail).

Legal basis:

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a. GDPR),
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. GDPR).

Opt-out option:

You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent or object to further receipt. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter either at the end of each newsletter or you can otherwise use one of the contact options given above, preferably e-mail, for this purpose.

Storage period:
Data will only be processed in this context as long as the corresponding consent exists or until you object to the sending of the newsletter. After that, the data will be deleted.

Provision of data:
The provision of your personal data is voluntary, based solely on your consent. Without existing consent, we can unfortunately not send you our newsletter.


We are engaged in online marketing. One activity of this is placing advertisements on the Internet in order to address new and existing customers. The advantage of online marketing over traditional advertising channels, such as TV or radio, is a more targeted approach to users and the more precise measurability of success. This is achieved through tracking. For this purpose, personal data may be processed by us as well as by our advertising partners. This includes location data, if you have consented to its use in your browser, as well as your IP address. As far as our advertising partners offer this, we use the so-called IP masking procedure, in which your IP address is shortened and thus anonymized. This is done to protect your data. Under no circumstances do we share clear data about you or other users with our advertising partners. Clear data is master data such as your name, your address or your e-mail address. However, our advertising partners usually create a pseudonymized advertising profile in which your surfing behavior and technical data such as your browser version and screen resolution are stored. Pseudonymized means that our advertising partners do not know your true identity, but you are assigned an advertising identification number. This advertising identification number and other technical data are stored locally on your end device (for example, in a cookie, a small text file). With the help of this file, it is then possible for our advertising partner and us to recognize you again. Since our advertising partners now also work with many other companies, our advertising partners can thus gradually fill the pseudonymized advertising profiles with data from, for example, website visits, app usage and other sources, and thus assess your interests. In special cases, it is also possible for our advertising partners to link the pseudonymized profiles with clear data known to you. This is the case, for example, with social networks, because here you usually provide your clear data voluntarily. With use of the advertising platform, however, we do not have access to this clear data in any case. We only gain access to information that helps us to assess the success of our advertisements. In the context of so-called conversion measurements, we can check which of the online marketing methods used has led to a contract being concluded. You can contact the provider of the social network to make any other arrangements or adjust the settings in your profile on the social network. We have no influence on this. We do not process your data without a legal basis. Therefore, we ask you for your consent before processing your data. This then represents the legal basis for the data processing. If we do not ask for your consent, your data will be processed based on our legitimate interest in effective, successful and recipient-friendly services.

What data is processed by tracking?

  • Usage data (e.g. web pages visited, interest in content, access times),
  • Meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses),
  • Location data (information about the geographical position of a device or person),
  • Event Data (Facebook) ("Event Data" is data that may be transmitted by us to Facebook, e.g. via Facebook Pixel (via apps or other means), and relates to individuals or their actions; the data includes, for example, information about visits to websites, interactions with content, functions, installations of apps, purchases of products, etc.; the Event Data is processed for the purpose of creating target groups for content and advertising information (Custom Audiences). Event data is processed for the purpose of creating target groups for content and advertising information (Custom Audiences); Event data does not include the actual content (such as written comments), no login information and no contact information (i.e. no names, email addresses and phone numbers). Event data is deleted by Facebook after a maximum of two years, the target groups formed from them with the deletion of our Facebook account).

Purpose of tracking:

The Tag Manager itself (which implements the code) does not process any personal data of the users. It acts as a mere 'manager' of the implemented code. Data is collected via the Tag Manager embedded tools, such as Google Analytics. The data is passed through to the individual solutions in the Google Tag Manager and is not stored.
