General Information on Data Processing

Scope of processing of personal data

We only process personal data if it is necessary to enable us to provide our website, services or content. Personal data will only be processed with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases where prior consent is not possible for legitimate reasons and processing is permitted by legal regulations.

Data erasure and storage time

Personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Data may still be stored if this has been provided for by law.

Provision of the Website

Description and scope of data processing

When you visit the Maildroppa website, log files may be generated containing your IP address, as well as which files were called. We do not store log files in combination with other personal user data. As a general rule, all log files are regularly deleted. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

Maildroppa collects and temporarily stores the date and time of access, the name and URL of the accessed file, the website from which the file was accessed, and what internet browser was used. Your computer operating system and your access provider’s name may also be collected.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files can be found inGDPR Art. 6, para. 1, p.1, lit. f.Our legitimate interest comes from the reasons stated above for the collection of your data and in no way relates to collecting your data to find out more about you personally.

We make use of cookies and analysis services to track visits to our website.

Purpose of data processing

We utilize the user’s IP address and temporarily store it for administrative purposes and to deliver our pages to the user with an uninterrupted connection. This data facilitates effective use of our website, and evaluates and maintains a stable and secure system by preventing and counteracting possible abuse by others.

Possibility of objection and elimination

The collection of data is required for the smooth operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection. If, contrary to expectations, there remains an urgent reason to delete the data separate from our own automatic deletion procedures, please send us a message.

We collect your email address information to enable us to manage your account effectively and facilitate the delivery of your newsletters to your customers.

This also verifies that you have authorized us to add you to our subscription and that you accept our collection of your email information.

For the legal protection of the controller, your IP address used to register with us and the date and time of registration will also be stored when you sign up for our services or newsletter. This data collection enables us to trace any potential misuse or inappropriate activity from user emails, in order to protect the legal standing and image of our company and its service.

We do not pass on personal data to any third parties.

Maildroppa Newsletter Subscription

Separate from your Maildroppa account, you can also sign up for our newsletter. This only requires an email address, which will be stored until you unsubscribe from this list. The double opt-in newsletter signup process again signals that you accept the storing of your email address by us until such time as you unsubscribe.

Duration of storage

The data will be deleted when the purpose of data collection is no longer necessary. Email addresses will be stored as long as your subscription to our service is active.
