Privacy Policy

Our principles
We only obtain and store required data and do not ask you for information that is not used to improve our service or optimize our marketing. We only pass on your customer data to third parties in clearly defined exceptions.
Once you purchase a Sophos product through our website, we must register it with Sophos itself. For this purpose, we must provide your name, company name, address and email address.
Cookies are text files that your browser stores when you visit a website. Cookies are used, for example, so that you do not have to log in again when you visit a website or web application again.
Cookies are also used by web analysis services such as Google Analytics to identify the visitor. You can also deactivate the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting in your browser. However, by turning off cookies, you may not be able to use certain functions on this website entirely.
Marketing Tools
We use the web analysis service Google Analytics to measure access to our website. We need this data in order to optimise and further develop the website based on the behaviour of the visitors. Google Analytics is a service of the American company Google Inc., which in turn is a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc. which has its headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Google Analytics uses cookies, among other things, which enable an evaluation of the use of our website. Google Analytics transfers and processes cookies and other data about your visit to our website to Google servers in the United States of America (USA). Google uses this data to evaluate the use of our website on our behalf and to provide further services in this context. The IP addresses used will be shortened before processing by Google to protect your privacy.

To use this chat, we have to integrate an external JavaScript into our page. This allows the service provider to access information that your browser reveals.

If you don't need this chat, we recommend the browser plugin Ghostery, which can block the Tidio chat.
Payment Provider
As payment option we offer among other possibilities the credit card. We use the payment provider Stripe, headquartered in San Francisco (USA).
