These server logs can contain the following information: Web request, interaction with a service, IP address (Internet Protocol address), browser type, browser language, date and time of the request and one or more cookies that uniquely identify the user’s browser or user account. After the communication process is completed, the IP address is made anonymous. The anonymized data is evaluated for statistical purposes.

The mentioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
  • Ensuring comfortable use of our website,
  • evaluation of system security and stability as well as
  • for other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GMO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes listed above for data collection. In no case we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

In addition, we use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website.


We use cookies on our site. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Information is stored in the cookie that results in each case in connection with the specifically used terminal device. However, this does not mean that we immediately become aware of your identity. The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. We use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These will be deleted automatically after leaving our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your end device for a specified period of time to optimize user-friendliness. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made in order not to have to enter them again.
On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you (see Section 5). These cookies enable us to automatically recognize when you return to our site that you have already been with us. These cookies are automatically deleted after a certain specified period of time after your last visit to the site.

The data processed by cookies is required for the aforementioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DS-GMO. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies can lead to the fact that you cannot use all functions of our website.


If you have expressly consented according to art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO, we will use your e-mail address to regularly send you our newsletter. To receive the newsletter it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address. The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. The subsequent confirmation will be logged by us for verification purposes; the time of registration and confirmation will be saved together with your IP address.

Our newsletters are sent via “MailChimp”, a platform of the Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass them on to third parties.

MailChimp has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, In addition, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing in the context of the newsletter using “MailChimp” is contained in the data protection declaration of “MailChimp” communicated below. There you will also find further information on the rights of users and the setting options for the protection of privacy:

You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you are also welcome to send your unsubscription request to by e-mail at any time.


On our website we maintain a blog, where we inform about our services and new offers from fileee.

For our blog we use the DISQUS comment system, which is provided by DISQUS Inc., 301 Howard St., Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA. You can find DISQUS’ privacy policy here. DISQUS allows you to log in either via your own DISQUS user account or via existing user accounts on Facebook or Twitter.

You can find more information on this in the data protection regulations of the respective service providers. DISQUS transmits to us the e-mail address of the user and the IP address used when entering a comment. We require this data solely for the purpose of contacting you in connection with the use of the DISQUS comment function. Unauthorized disclosure to third parties does not take place. You have the option of deleting comments at any time. Otherwise they will remain permanently saved and permanently visible on the Internet for everyone.


Besides the website you can also use the services of fileee via mobile applications. These are offered in the corresponding shops and download portals for iOS and Android systems.

Personal data (e.g. name, e-mail address, etc.) will only be transmitted when using these applications if the user expressly and knowingly makes them available for certain purposes (e.g. by using a contact form; see below).

We expressly point out to you that the use of mobile applications in accordance with the data protection regulations of the respective download platform (iOS/Android) may transfer personal data to their manufacturer (Apple Inc./Google Inc.). fileee has no influence on the transmission of this personal data and its use by the manufacturers of the download platforms. This notice is for your information only.

We would also like to point out that the use of mobile terminals in accordance with the provisions of the Telecommunications Act (TKG) may be the subject of storage by the service provider and requests for information from the security authorities to the extent specified therein.

For “cookies” in connection with the use of our mobile applications, see the above passage of this data protection notice.


The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GMO. With the tracking measures that will be used, we want to ensure that our website and the mobile fileee app are designed and continuously optimized to meet requirements. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website or the mobile fileee app and to evaluate them for the purpose of optimising our offer. These are legitimate interests that justify the processing of your data. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.


fileee uses the web analysis service Google Analytics, which uses “cookies” (see above) to analyse the use of (e.g. through reports). This serves exclusively to analyse the offers of fileee and should help fileee to continuously improve the design of the website and the offers.

The information generated in this way, such as

  • Browser type/version,
  • Operating system used,
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server request,

are regularly transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Since anonymisation of IP information is activated for, Google’s IP address is previously reduced within the EU or in a member state of the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. The data collected in this way is not combined with other personal data that Google stores.

The storage of cookies can be prevented at any time by appropriate settings in the browser software (e.g. MS Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome etc.). In this case, however, it is possible that not all functions of are fully available.

Irrespective of this, users of can object to the collection, storage and use of personal data by Google to the extent described above at any time or prevent the collection, storage and use.
This is possible by installing a so-called plug-in, which can be downloaded under the link On the other hand, you can configure your browser as described above so that a cookie is never stored.
Further information on Google Analytics’ terms of use and data protection can be found at the following links:, or


We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record the use of this online offer and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising the online offer for users. These tracking measures are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GMO, i.e. exclusively on the basis of your previously given consent. Google Adwords will set a cookie (see above) on your device if you have reached our online offers via a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification.

If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can see that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to our site. Every Adwords customer – including us – receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers.

The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the “” domain.
Google’s Privacy Policy on Conversion Tracking is available here:


Our website uses Google Tag Manager, a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal information. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it will remain disabled for all tracking tags implemented by Google Tag Manager.


The fileee web app and also the mobile fileee versions for iOS and Android use the service “Mixpanel” of Mixpanel Inc, 405 Howard St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA. With Mixpanel it is possible to track certain user activities (e.g. scanning or archiving documents). Only the usage processes themselves are recorded – personal data is not collected by us in this way. We use the information thus obtained about usage behavior within the fileee applications to further improve the offerings of fileee. The privacy policy of Mixpanel is available under the following link: Mixpanel has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield,


The mobile fileee versions for iOS and Android use “” – a tool for evaluating and analyzing the usage behavior of fileee users, which comes from Adjust GmbH, Saarbrücker Str. 37A, 10405 Berlin, Germany. provides information on their installation when the app is launched and also records further so-called event data (e.g. scanning or archiving documents). The information obtained in this way is processed exclusively in German data centers and should help us to better understand how users actually use fileee’s mobile applications and what effects mobile ad campaigns have. With this help we want to further improve the offers of fileee. For the analyses by, personal data (namely IDFA or Android ID, IP and MAC address of the mobile device on which the mobile fileee app is installed) is only processed in anonymized form. This prevents the individual fileee user from being identified.


The fileee applications use the open source platform of “”, a tool for using “deep linking” for the mobile fileee apps. Branch is supported by Branch Metrics, Inc. 1400 Seaport Blvd, Building B, 2nd Floor, Redwood City, CA 94063, USA. With the help of “Deep-Linking” technology, fileee can generate targeted links to content within the fileee app. This is necessary to direct the user from an email or website with such a deep-link directly to a defined location in an app. An example of this is a link that displays a specific document directly after opening the app instead of first leading to the app’s dashboard. Deep links” allow context data to be preserved during the installation process of an app in order to personalize the content of the app to the user. In addition, we use the information provided by Branch to improve the use of our applications for all users, to further customize our applications and to monitor the success of our advertising activities. Branch provides fileee with the following information, including personally identifiable information, to provide the deep linking solution: Your iOS or Android identification (IFDA or Android ID), the IP address, the version of the fileee app, information about the terminal used, its manufacturer and the operating system version used, screen size and resolution, start and end of use of the fileee app, type of connection (e.g. WLAN, mobile access), period since installation and since the last update of the fileee app, information about the language version of the fileee app used. The listed information is only processed by Branch in anonymous form. An identification of the individual fileee user by Branch is thus excluded.

Branch has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield,”. In addition, we have concluded a “General Data Processing Agreement” with Branch. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in mobile apps using Branch is contained in Branch’s Privacy Policy, which is provided below. You can also find more information about users’ rights and privacy settings there:” If you do not want to participate in Branch’s tracking process, you can unsubscribe yourself here at any time:” Please note that this may affect the proper use of our services.

On the website user accounts can be created to use the services of fileee. When you create a fileee account, the fields provided in the registration form must be filled in correctly. The personal data collected in this way will be used by fileee exclusively for the purpose of implementing the user contract for the services of fileee on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GMO.

In particular, fileee will never automatically store the user’s passwords, but only at your request and with your express consent.

If information is subsequently removed from the user profile, the data collected so far for this purpose will be deleted immediately.

When registering via one of our partners, the relevant data is transferred from the respective partner to fileee.
Which data is transferred can be seen in the following list:

  • 1&1 Mail und Media GmbH: name, e-mail address, postal address
  • Agenda Informationssysteme GmbH & Co. KG: name, e-mail address, customer number


The principle of fileee is a new way of document management. With fileee you can digitally archive your documents in a central location, organize them and access them from anywhere. You can also remove your documents from our platform at any time or export them in a common file format and save them elsewhere.

fileee allows you to structure the documents and recognizes all important information. With the help of fileee, documents can be found quickly and easily thanks to intelligent organization and search functions. Synchronization allows users to access and work with your documents and information on all connected devices.

In the context of document storage and analysis, fileee also processes personal data. If the documents transmitted to fileee contain personal data of third parties, the user is responsible for obtaining the corresponding consents or only to transmit personal data if a statutory permission exists.

This data processing in fileee is carried out on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 lit. b DS-GVO for the execution of the contract of use for the services of fileee and on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, whereby our legitimate interest is to achieve an improvement of our services (for example by a faster allocation of documents and the improvement of findability) for all users and to send you service messages if companies offer fileee as communication channel for their customers and you have uploaded documents of this company to fileee.


With fileee Conversations, a solution for companies, an open communication platform is also included within fileee. With this you and participating companies can communicate directly, easily and securely within fileee. In particular, documents can be exchanged in this way between you and the participating companies (e.g. insurance documents, bank documents, etc.).

If you use fileee in this way, fileee has no influence on the further processing of the documents sent by you to the participating partner companies. fileee is in this respect only the means of communication. What the participating companies do with your data, how they process it and to whom it may be passed on by them, is the sole responsibility of the participating companies. Please refer to the data protection information of the participating companies and their contractual conditions. Always pay particular attention to which documents you may and may not send to the participating companies via fileee! Always bear in mind that the documents transmitted may also be documents containing particularly sensitive personal data, such as health-related information.
Similarly, if you allow participating companies to send you documents via fileee. fileee will notify you of access to such documents. However, you are responsible for their timely retrieval on fileee. Please refer to the agreements between you and the participating company regarding the use of fileee as a communication channel.


In addition, it is possible to specify certain additional information that fileee can use to provide a better service to fileee users.

Within the scope of this “analysis improvement” you have the possibility to complain about errors in document recognition (e.g. an incorrectly recognized sender in a document, an unrecognized date, an incorrect allocation of a document as an invoice) and at the same time contribute to the fact that this error is corrected in the sense of all fileee users. By submitting the document concerned, you can help us to improve our analysis. A fileee employee then looks at the submitted document and tries to identify and correct the error. If you leave an additional comment, this comment makes the “analysis improvement” even easier for us.

We treat your documents with the utmost confidentiality and will not pass them on to third parties. With each new fileee update we try to consider as many documents as possible, so that they will soon be recognized correctly by the analysis. The document then remains in a training set, which we can use to further validate, test and automatically improve our analysis.

This information is provided voluntarily and is transparent at all times. Of course, users can also decide at any time how much they want to contribute to improving the service. No documents are automatically shared with fileee for the purpose of improving the analysis, but exclusively on the basis of your consent with regard to each individual document (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO).


Within the scope of the electronic signature, the writing speed, writing direction, writing pauses and, if necessary, pressure strength are recorded and stored in encrypted form. This is done to prove that the signature was made by you. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent until revocation.



Mail traffic with fileee is via “MailChimp”, a platform of the Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. Your e-mail addresses as well as the content of the mail traffic with fileee are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send mutual messages on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimization of the dispatch. However, MailChimp does not use the data to write to or pass them on to third parties.

MailChimp has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, In addition, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing in the context of mail traffic using “MailChimp” is contained in the data protection declaration of “MailChimp” communicated below. There you will also find further information on the rights of users and the setting options for the protection of privacy:


If you have any questions, we offer you the opportunity to contact us using the forms provided. A valid e-mail address is required so that we know who sent the request and can respond to it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.
The data will be processed for the purpose of contacting us pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GMO on the basis of your voluntary consent.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your request has been processed. We will keep e-mails according to the legal retention periods and delete them afterwards.


When users of the fileee services send a support request to fileee, data in connection with these messages is collected and stored by fileee. These data are your contact details and the time and content of your support request as well as the further relevant communication between you and us. This is done on the basis of your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GMO.

The personal data collected by us within the scope of such support requests will be automatically deleted after your request has been dealt with. We will keep e-mails according to the legal retention periods and delete them afterwards.


The e-mail address provided during registration can be used by fileee to send you messages about our services (e.g. new general terms and conditions or data protection regulations, information on better use of fileee in the context of onboarding, information on restricted use such as maintenance, etc.). However, this possibility only exists within the scope of the implementation of the user contract itself and is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DS-GVO.

Due to our legitimate interest in offering you the most comprehensive and convenient use of our digital document management (art. 6 par. 1 lit. f DS-GVO), fileee will also inform you that a company from which you have uploaded documents to fileee offers you the use of fileee as a communication channel (see above under “fileee as a communication platform”).

Further information on other fileee services will only be sent to the user with the express prior consent of fileee (art. 6 par. 1 lit. a DS-GVO); see above under Newsletter.


We want to permanently improve our services and the platform in order to enable all users to make the best possible use of fileee. For this purpose, we have provided functions that provide us with information in the event of malfunctions of the platform that occur with individual users. We receive this information together with the personal details of the users for whom the error occurred. However, we only process them in anonymous form as long as you do not send us a support request (see above). In such a case, we will check whether and, if so, which error report we have already received concerning your support request. The personal data collected by us within the scope of such error reports are automatically deleted after the error message has been dealt with.
You can deactivate the automatic transmission of error reports to us in the settings of fileee at any time and thus exercise your right of objection.


If you commission fileee to digitize documents, fileee will scan the documents sent in paper form and make them accessible to you via your fileee account. This processing may also include personal data in the documents themselves, but in any case the processing of your contact data is carried out exclusively for the purposes of contract implementation, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DS-GVO. For the digitized data, the data protection information in section 5 shall apply accordingly.

After scanning the documents sent by you are either sent back or destroyed after prior agreement by fileee. For the return shipment fileee will choose the regular mail, unless a different agreement has been made.

Document destruction will be carried out in accordance with DIN 32757 and at least security level 2.


We use social plugins from the social networks Disqus, Facebook, Twitter and Google in our online offers on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO in order to make us more familiar with them. The underlying advertising purpose corresponds to our legitimate interest. Responsibility for the data protection-compliant operation of social networks must be guaranteed by their respective providers.

The integration of these plugins takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method, in order to protect you in the best possible way. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially transmitted to the providers of the plugins. You can recognize the respective provider of the plugin by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the respective logo (e.g. for Facebook: white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign). We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plugin via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, the plugin provider receives the information that a user has called the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, personal data (in particular the IP address) will then be transmitted to the provider of the respective plugin. By activating the plugin your personal data will be transmitted to the respective plugin provider and stored there (at US-American providers in the USA). In the case of Facebook, according to the provider’s own information in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection. Since the plugin providers collect data in particular via cookies (see above), we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the grayed-out box using your browser’s security settings.

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing or the storage periods of the plug-in providers. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

The respective plugin provider stores the data collected about users of our online offer as user profiles and uses these for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its own website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-fair advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about the activities of the users on our web page. Users have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby a user must contact the respective plug-in provider directly to exercise this right. Through the plugins we offer users the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for our users.

The data transfer is independent of whether you have an account with the plugin provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plugin provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing accounts with the plugin provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plugin provider will also save this information in your user account and communicate it publicly to your contacts. We therefore recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this avoids any assignment to the profile with the plug-in provider.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and your processing by the plug-in providers is contained in the data protection declarations of these providers notified below. There you will also find further information on the rights of users and the setting options for the protection of privacy within these networks.
