Data security and Integrity

SSL Certificate

All connections and communication between your devices and our servers are encrypted by using an SSL certificate signed by Let's Encrypt, Google Trust Services or your own certificate.

Data Encryption

Sensitive data like passwords, payment information or personal data such as IP addresses are stored encrypted in the database and cannot be read in plain text.


We create daily backups of all databases in 3 different locations with a retention period of up to 30 calendar days for the immediate recovery of data loss caused by us.


What personal data do we collected from you?

Core Data

When creating an account on our site, at least an e-mail address is required. With this unique identification, you can log in to your account and we can inform about changes in our terms and conditions. If you create a paid account, you can optionally enter your name, address, telephone number and VAT ID. We use this data exclusively for the purpose of issuing invoices.

Onboarding E-Mails

In the first days you will receive onboarding e-mails that explain how to use the platform. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the mail.



You will receive newsletters separately only if you have given us your explicit consent. The consent can be revoked at any time.

IP Address

Server Logs

We store all access to our servers in so-called log files. These include the IP address and which resource was accessed. The data in the log files are not linked to any persons. Only in case of a criminal act or attack on our infrastructure we use the log files to find a clue about the attack or forward the log data to the authorities. The logs will be deleted after one month.

User Account / QR Code

For each user account or QR Code created, the IP address is saved. In case the QR Code points to a fraudulent site with illegal content, we are able to temporarily disable the QR Code or the user account and to hand over the IP address to the authorities. If the account or the QR Code is deleted, the stored IP address will also be deleted.


For the evaluation of visitors on our website we use Matomo. This helps us to understand how often and from where our website is visited. Anonymized IP addresses are saved in Matomo. The last 3 digits of the IP are omitted and thus no personal identification of visitors more possible.

You are in control of your data

Right to Information

You have the right to ask for confirmation as to whether personal data is being processed and for information about this data.

Right to Rectification

You have the right to request the completion of the data concerning you or the correction of the incorrect data concerning you.

Right to Transmission

You have the right to receive data that you have provided to us and to request their transmission to other persons responsible.

How is your data deleted?

GDPR gives you the right to be forgotten. We have implemented this consistently and do not keep any of your data for longer than necessary.

On demand

Upon request of an individual from a verified e-mail address, we will immediately delete all personal data and contents that you have created under your account (QR Codes, landing page and statistics). Please, log into your account and click on your account settings to "close account". If you have been a customer with us and have already received an invoice, we are obliged to keep your billing data for the tax office for 7 years.


If your free account has not been active for 5 years your account including all data will be deleted automatically. An account is inactive if you do not login within that time range nor any of your QR Codes has been scanned longer than 5 years.

QR Code Tracking

The tracking of QR Code scans is compliant with our service according to GDPR data protection, because no personal information is processed or stored.

IP Address

We use the IP address to determine the country where the QR Code was scanned. After the lookup, the IP is stored anonymously in the database. It is not possible to relate to a person using the anonymous IP address.

GPS Position

The GPS position can only be retrieved by explicit consent of the user in the browser. This security query was issued by W3 Consortium and is built into every browser. The query cannot be bypassed.

Phone Number

From the browser in which the target URL of the QR Code is requested, only very limited information can be extracted. It is not possible to retrieve the device's phone number or any other contact information.

Landing Pages

In order to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when creating your landing pages, you can set optional links to your imprint and privacy policy on every landing page.

If you integrate content from external servers (such as Google Fonts) on your landing pages, you should include a notice in your privacy policy for each service.

Optional links to your imprint and privacy policy on every landing page.

Positive Opt-In

When a user sends personal information, you must request his consent, which is when he or she gives a statement of intent, i.e. the user marks the checkbox. Pre-checked boxes that use customer inaction to assume consent are not valid under GDPR. You can optionally specify how many days the customer data should be saved.

3rd Party Tracking / Re-Targeting

When creating a dynamic QR Code, you can include third party tracking plugins such as Google Analytics or a re-targeting pixel by Facebook when a QR Code is scanned. Those external tracking services will store a third-party cookie on the user's device.

In EU countries, due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in the United States, because of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), express consent from a user is required, if third-party cookies are to be stored on his device.

Our service provides an optional consent popup, that is displayed to the user before the cookies are stored and the user is being redirected to the target page.

If the option for the consent is activated, the user first confirms that he agrees to the storage of cookies on his device before he is redirected. If he does not agree, the cookies are not created, and he is redirected to the target page. If the popup for consent is deactivated, the user is redirected to the landing page without his knowledge that third-party cookies are being saved.

Express consent from a user is required
