We pay special attention to the protection of your privacy in the processing of your personal data. Personal data collected during visits to our website are processed by us according to the guidelines of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Personal data

Personal data consists of details on the personal or material situation of a definite or definable natural person. These are e.g. name, address, telephone number or your date of birth.

If personal data are voluntarily provided for competitions or other benefits of OTARIS, they are stored separately and not combined with the return lines of the Speed Tester App.

The external IP address is only detected and stored for the purpose of the location information. Only the first data pairs of the IP address are required for localization, the last element is being anonymized, so a custom mapping is impossible. (Example: The anonymous IP address allows only a rough assignment in a city.

We declare that the Speed Monitor captures or stores no information about visited websites, or other stored data and other information on the computer / smartphone / tablet that enable movement and preference profile. This application collects NO substantive information, such as News, site IDs or passwords, credit card numbers or other financial account numbers.
