1. data collection on our website


Our website uses so-called cookies very sparingly. Cookies are small data sets that your browser stores and can be retrieved on our website. They enable certain functions of the website that require the storage of data. 

We only use so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. 

You can set cookies on our website alasca.cloudYou can refuse cookies that are not necessary for the provision of our services by clicking on "Accept essential cookies only" in the cookie banner. If you have clicked on "Accept all", you can revoke your consent at any time and delete the cookies by clicking on "Cookie settings" in the website footer, changing your selection and clicking on "Save". If cookies are not allowed or restricted, this may limit the functionality of the website.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. consent to further cookies, shopping cart function or similar) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. We claim a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of our services and have affected measures for the protection of the users concerned in order to minimise risks arising as a result, for example a short storage period. Cookies that serve further purposes such as the collection of statistics or marketing are only collected after active consent on your part. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. We request your consent via the cookie banner displayed.


Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you have provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based on legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO. You can object to the processing at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The lawfulness of the data processing operations carried out until the objection remains unaffected.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.



We use the open source software Matomo to create general and anonymous usage statistics for our website. This is operated locally on our site. Through local use, your data is not passed on to third parties. 

We collect the following data with the help of Matomo: 

  • Shortened IP address
  • Access times
  • Dwell time
  • Device type
  • Occurred error codes
  • Browser data (browser type and version, operating system, language, time zone)
  • Referrer URL (the last website visited, if reported by the browser)
  • The websites you visit on our site
  • The amount of data transmitted to you


The IP address is only stored anonymously by deleting the last two of the four octets (e.g. No usage profile is created for your person or your browser, but only aggregated data is compiled into anonymous statistics. 

The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest in improving our website in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO, whereby we only use aggregated information that cannot be traced back to individual persons for the purpose of balancing interests, for which no consent is required. 

2. your rights

Right of access to your data

You have the right to obtain information about the personal data concerning you. You can contact us for information at any time.

In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may require proof from you that you are the person you claim to be. Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law. Finally, you have the right to object to processing within the scope of the law.
A right to data portability also exists within the framework of data protection law.

Objection or revocation against the processing of your data

If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time.

If you would like to exercise your right of revocation or objection, it is sufficient to send an e-mail to

Your right to erasure of data 

We generally delete personal data when there is no need for further storage. A requirement may exist in particular if the data is still needed in order to fulfil contractual services, to check and grant or ward off warranty and, if applicable, guarantee claims. In the case of statutory retention obligations, deletion is only considered after the expiry of the respective retention obligation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases (Art. 21 DSGVO)

If the data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) e) or f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. This data protection information lists the legal basis on which the data processing is based. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) DSGVO). 

3. updates to this privacy information

This privacy statement is current as of December 2022. We reserve the right to update this privacy statement from time to time to reflect changes in legal requirements and to reflect changes in our offerings. The current version applies each time you visit our site.

4. security of your data

This page uses TLS encryption. This serves to protect against forgery of the website by third parties ("phishing") and unauthorised reading of communication content by third parties, e.g. in a public WLAN. 

To protect yourself from fraudulent websites, look for the lock symbol in your browser and for a correct address line without spelling mistakes. If you visit this site regularly, it is best to open it via a bookmark. In general, avoid calling up websites via links that you have received by e-mail. 

We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible, but is made significantly more difficult by the measures described above.

Insofar as we process personal data, we use appropriate security measures to protect this data. We take the necessary precautions in accordance with the current state of the art in order to minimise the risk of manipulation, unauthorised access, loss of data, etc.. The processing only takes place on servers with locations within the scope of the EU GDPR.

5. right of appeal to the data protection supervisory authority
