Facts & figures worth knowing

We love digital, and we bet you do too.  Sure, we use them all the time, our little digital helpers – apps and services that come free of charge. But are they really free? No. In fact, their providers finance themselves through the 21st century‘s currency – personal user data.
On the expense of your privacy, these services track, save, process, and sell all of your clicks, likes, searches, purchases, and other activities. Worst case, you’ll fall victim to cyber criminals, just like every second user in Germany.

Read here the latest results from worldwide studies about digitalisation, data security, and data misuse.
