Except as mentioned below, we shall not sell, rent, trade or otherwise transfer any personal and/or traffic data or communications content to any third party without your explicit consent, unless it is obliged to do so under applicable laws or by order of the competent authorities.

In addition, disclosure may take place in connection with official enquiries, court orders and legal proceedings if it is necessary for legal prosecution or enforcement. When governments make a lawful demand for customer data from us, we strive to limit the disclosure. We will only release specific data mandated by the relevant legal demand.

If compelled to disclose your data, we will promptly notify you and provide a copy of the demand unless legally prohibited from doing so.

If we commission third parties with the collection, processing and use of data within the scope of commissioned processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR, this will also take place exclusively in compliance with the statutory provisions on data protection.

Data Transfer to third Countries

We maintain servers in different regions and your information may be processed on servers located outside the country where you live and outside the EEA. Data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. Regardless of where your information is processed, we apply the same protections described in this Privacy Policy. We also comply with certain legal frameworks relating to the transfer of data, such as the frameworks described below.

Where the European Commission has not issued an adequacy decision (Art. 45 GDPR) for the aforementioned countries, we have taken appropriate precautions to ensure an adequate level of data protection for any data transfers.

If a third country transfer is provided for and no adequacy decision or appropriate safeguards are in place, it is possible and there is a risk that authorities in the respective third country (e.g. intelligence services) may gain access to the transferred data in order to collect and analyze it, and that enforceability of your data subject rights cannot be guaranteed. In this situation, we will rely on Article 49 paragraph (1) letter a) of the GDPR, and obtain your prior consent.

FileCloud accepts no responsibility or liability for these other websites.


FileCloud shall take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect the personal data provided to it or collected by it with due observance of the applicable obligations and exceptions under the relevant legislation. Your customer profile and traffic data can only be accessed by authorized employees or consultants of FileCloud that need to have access to this data in order to be able to fulfill their given duties.


FileCloud may, as an opt-in feature, from time to time ask you to provide feedback on your experiences which will be used to measure and improve quality. You are at no time under any obligation to provide any of such data. Any and all information which is voluntarily submitted in feedback forms on the website or any survey that you accept to take part in is used for the purposes of reviewing this feedback and improving the FileCloud software products and websites.
