Keeping your data protected

Protecting the data of our customers and their website users is one of our most important jobs. That’s why we have many infrastructure components and IT processes in place that ensure that your data stays available, but only to the intended audience.

Redundant storage

freistilbox manages website content in at least two copies on our database clusters. Our file storage clusters store asset files in at least three copies. That way, your application data stays available even during partial outages or maintenance work.


All application data, i.e. database content and asset files, is backed up automatically once every 24h. The backup infrastructure is completely independent from the file storage cluster for maximum failure tolerance.

Additionally, you can (and should) use your shell access box to create offsite backups using command line tools like mysqldump or add-ons like the Backup & Migrate Drupal module.

Data protection compliance

Our IT infrastructure is fully located in data centres in Germany which are owned and operated by a German hosting provider. This allows freistilbox to be fully compliant with European GDPR data protection regulations and even the very strict German Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG).
