We use only temporary cookies with a random number which are deleted after the current session automatically to secure the web session. We store anonymized ip addresses with time and URL because we want to know how many customers visit our page and from which company they came. In case of cyber attacks we may disable the anonymization of ip addresses. An assignment to single persons is not possible.

External links are marked in this way. On these third party pages apply their own privacy policies.

We are using personal data for processing of contracts, sales and billing according to the Bundesdatenschutzgesetzes (BDSG, especially §24 and DS-GVO Art. 6 1b/c) and the Telemediengesetzes (TMG).

Time of storing is according to law (e.g. GoBD) and service time. One time paid or free offers has to be cancelled by the customer. There are no automatic decisions based on personal data.

You may request information or copies of your personal data which we store without any costs. You may request confirmation of storing and processing, correction, freezing or deletion of our data. If we are by law required to store the data we will freeze instead of delete. Of course, you can revoke any given consent.

Proxy and test services

For customers who want to use a box without further technical knowledge we provide proxy and name services. The servers of these services stores the ip addresses and internal authentification data for boxes for seven days. An assignment of authentication data to single persons or boxes will not be done. Every box creates individual, but anonymously authentication data (a number and password). These data is independent from your logins and personal data. This number is required to spread the serverload evenly among all customers. We cannot contact customers, but we may deposit messages for this authentication data. Boxes may fetch these messages anonymously.

Our proxy services are not intended to provide additional anonymity, there are only a help to circumvent technical limitations (DS-Lite, missing port forwarding, no own domain) and to provide a simple setup. If in doubt please consider the usage of our proxies as if the connection is made directly from your own connection.

Our proxies will forward the data immediatelly and without alterations (e.g. for incoming mails or web access without port forwarding). Encrypted connections are forwarded directly normally as you can observe with the unbroken certificate and unchanged raw data. Our servers are not capable of reading the unencrypted data

One exception are old browsers or old mail server, which doesn't support SNI (Server Name Indication). In this case we have to re-encrypt the connection to recognice the correct box (our servers provides many boxes). The re-encryption is done without any intermediate storing. You will recognise re-encryption with the broken certificate (e.g. a browser warning).

In contract to common mail servers (so called mail relays), our servers will never store your mails, all data packets are forwared immediatelly to you box. If the different server are encrypting correctly (and your server have an additional domain other than *, we are not able to read any data without recognition.


The BranaBox uses cookie to secure any browser session and saves all of your (personal) data. But it's located in your own rooms and allows the access only to you. We don't have any access to your box. All log files are deleted after 14 days. The box is specially hardened against cyber attacks. Nethertheless you should limit forwarded ports to the required services.

You can publish wikis and file spaces as public pages. You can choose to anonymize logging for any access to this pages. In this case the two last blocks of the ip address are deleted from logfile.

The box communicates (if not disabled) with our proxies and test services with a simple and transparent protocol. We can send you the protocol and you can verify the communication. You can even configure the box to be completely indepent from our services. Either by fulfil all technical requirements (fixed ip address, port forwarding, observation of spam black lists) or by using another proxy. The protocol is free on request, feel free to use another proxy services or provide an own.

The box will look for updates (if not disables or after five consecutive restarts) and installs signed versions. This is done transparently anonymously and for the sake of transparancy over a non-encrypted channel.

Additional the box communicates with all boxes of your personal cloud (ssl encrypted) and with all connected other clouds.

If the query of box state is enabled, connected clouds & boxes may query the box state (log files, error messages), but cannot change anything. You can look into the state yourself below the checkbox.

Furthermore the box connects to foreign mail servers, browsers and mobile devices to deliver and receive you mail and to synchronize contacts, fotos etc.
