Services subject to charges

In order to provide services that are subject to a charge, we will ask you for additional data, such as payment details, so that we can execute your order. We store this data in our systems until the legal retention periods have expired.

External payment service providers


External payment service providers are only used in Global Hosting. No external payment service provider is integrated in DE-Hosting and CH-Hosting.

Our website uses external payment service providers, through whose platforms the users and we make payment transactions. Our main service provider is stripe.com, a technology company that provides online payment processing solutions.

Here you can find more information about stripe's security and compliance:

Within the framework of the performance of contracts, we appoint payment service providers on the basis of the Swiss Data Protection Ordinance and, where necessary, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. EU-GDPR. Otherwise, we use external payment service providers on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with the Swiss Data Protection Ordinance and, where necessary, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. EU-GDPR in order to offer our users effective and secure payment options.

The data processed by the payment service providers include inventory data, such as name and address, bank data, such as account or credit card numbers, passwords, TANs and check and contract amounts and recipient-related information. This information is required to complete the transactions. However, the data entered is only processed by the payment service providers and stored by them. As operators, we do not receive any information about (bank) accounts or credit cards, but only information to confirm (accept) or reject the payment. Under certain circumstances, the payment service providers may transfer the data to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness. In this regard, we refer to the general terms and conditions and data protection notices of the payment service providers.

For the payment transactions the terms and conditions and the privacy policy of the respective payment service providers apply, which are available within the respective website or transaction applications. We also refer to these for further information and the assertion of rights of revocation, information and other affected parties.



If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to check that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.
