I , Daniel Kreuzhofer, regard the protection and the confidentiality of your data as very important. I collect and use your personal data in accordance with the relevant provisions of German data protection legislation. In this Privacy Policy, I would like to tell you which personal data Drink O’Band collects and what I use it for.

Below, I tell you about the type and extent of and the purposes for which personal data are collected and used.


The controller within the meaning of German data protection laws is:

Subject of Data Protection

The subject of data protection is personal data. According to Section 3, Subsection 1 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (“Bundesdatenschutzgesetz”), these are individual details on personal or objective circumstances of a certain person or certain persons. These include details such as your name, your postal address, your email address, your telephone number or, where appropriate, even use-data.

Collection and Use of Data

Automated Data Collection

When you access Drink O’Band websites and apps, your internet browser/device automatically transmits data for technical reasons. The following data are stored separately from other data that you may have sent us:

  • your date and time of access,
  • your browser-type and version,
  • the operating system you use,
  • the URL of the website you have previously visited,
  • the quantity of data transmitted.

For technical reasons these data are stored and are not assigned to any identifiable person at any time.

Data Entered by Users

You can use the Drink O’Band product both with and without registering. However, you can only access Drink O’Band using certain terminals such as an iPhone, iPod, iPad, Windows, Mac or Android and without additional functions. In order to make use of all its advantages, you have to register. To do this, you must enter your email address and select a password. I require these data in order to guarantee that you are able to make full use of the entire offer. I need these and possibly other data not least in order to respond to your wishes, questions and criticism.

The central function of Drink O’Band is logging your drinking water consumption. You will be able to use this product both online and offline.

Where Drink O’Band is used solely offline, the data you enter will be stored de-centrally on your storage medium. In such a case, I will not be able to access these data.

If you use Drink O’Band in combination with a registered account, all data and tasks entered will be integrated into a database. The purpose of this database is to allow you to use Drink O’Band at various different levels and call up your logs anywhere and at any time. Data are transmitted to the respective terminal using SSL encryption so that your data are transmitted securely.

I use personal data in order to enable secure, effective and user-related use of Drink O’Band services, including for:

  • calling up the drink log via the internet;
  • anonymously analysing statistics for press releases and studies;
  • recommending Drink O’Band by using the “Invite” function for friends and acquaintances (email address).
Transfer of Data

I will not transfer your data to third parties as a matter of course without letting you know in advance or asking for your prior permission. I may only transfer your data to third parties without informing you separately beforehand in the following exceptional cases as explained below:

  • If required for investigating the illegal use of Drink O’Band or for legal proceedings, personal data will be transferred to the criminal investigation authorities and, if appropriate, to injured third parties. I will only do this if there are concrete indications of illegal and/or abusive behaviour. I can only transfer on your personal data if this is used to enforce General Terms and Conditions of Business or other agreements. I am also legally obliged to give certain public authorities information. These are criminal investigation authorities, public authorities which prosecute administrative offences entailing fines and the German finance authorities.
  • Occasionally I depend on contractually affiliated external companies and external service providers to supply services such as the supply of advertising measures (only if you have given your explicit prior consent), processing payments (PayPal, credit card etc.), storing your data and customer service. In such cases, information is transferred to these companies or individuals in order to enable them to process this information further. I carefully select these external service providers and review them regularly to ensure that your privacy is preserved. The service providers may only use the data for the purposes stipulated by us. I also contractually require the service providers to treat your data solely in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the German data protection laws.
  • In order to further develop my business, I may alter the corporate structure of my business by changing its legal form. I may also form, sell or buy subsidiaries, divisions or parts of the company and product. In such transactions, customer information together with the part of the company to be transferred will be passed on. Every time personal data are transferred to third parties to the extent prescribed, I will ensure that this is done in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the relevant data protection laws.
