GERMAN LAW - A High Level of Security

German federal privacy legislation aims to protect the rights of the individual in the handling of his or her personal data. The Data Protection Act stipulates that all persons can decide for themselves which of their personal data should be available to whom. Data protection and associated privacy policies are designed to prevent "transparent people."

Conclusion: In comparison with other countries of the world, Germany currently offers a high level of data protection for bytejail customers due to corresponding legislation. Currently, we are examining other international locations to broaden the range of security.


Of course, we have no influence on future decisions or legislation of the German Federal Government. However, were a government decision to affect or diminish the security and protection of our customers, we would have to question Germany as a location for the company.
