Whenever personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail-address) is requested on this site, this happens – wherever possible – on a voluntary basis. Without your explicit prior consent, this data will not be shared with third parties.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can suffer from security vulnerabilities. A 100% protection of data against unauthorized third-party access is therefore not possible.

We explicitly object the usage of contact data revealed on this website's impressum for sending non-requested advertising or informational material. We reserve the right for taking legal steps in of unsolicited submission of advertising material, e.g. spam mails.

Collected data

By using our software, user-specific data is created that can be categorized as follows:

Account-related data

Data that results from account registration or management. This includes the password (stored as a so called "salted hash"), IP address, language settings and additional data given by the user (e.g. e-mail-address). Following the principle "privacy by design" we try to collect as little personal data as possible. In addition, this data is always transmitted via encrypted channels only and stored in an encrypted form. This data is not shared with third parties for the purpose of advertisement or similar. We will only contact customers via e-mail if that was explicitly requested by the user (e.g. direct contact, newsletter registration etc.) or due to extraordinary reasons (change of privacy policy, security related incidents etc.).

Application-related data

Many features of our software rely on the analysis of automatically collected activity data. Depending on the platform, this may include sensor data (gyroscope, accelerometer etc.), positional information (GPS), names of surrounding Wi-Fi networks, but also window titles, name of actively used programs, keyboard entries and mouse movements. This data is exclusively collected and stored for the purpose of local data analysis. An upload of application-related data only occurs for the purpose of data-synchronization between different devices of the user. In those cases all data is encrypted before the upload occurs. The used encryption key is only accessible by the user, respectively the local application, but not to us. Since this means that we don't have direct access to this data, this also eliminates the risk of this data being shared with third parties.

Ionwalk Network

By participating in the "Ionwalk Network", users help us continuously improving our software according to our user's requirements. In addition they get the chance to receive results of other user groups for comparison (provided that it's reasonable and that the available data basis is big enough). This allows users to get a better understanding of their own results. For this, collected data or results from local data analysis are transmitted to our servers through an encrypted connection. The user always has the possibility to see which data we transmit. On the server side, the transmitted data is always stored in an anonymized form, to prevent data being correlated with individual users at a later point. Anonymized data or results from its analysis may be shared with third parties (partners, research facilities etc.) or used for editorial purposes.


Our servers are located in Germany and are protected by applying state-of-the-art methods. If you have further questions regarding our data protection concept or special requests for information, please contact us through one of the contact channels listed on the impressum page.
