We endeavor to ensure that any data breaches are detected early and, where appropriate, immediately reported to you or the relevant regulatory authority, taking into account the relevant data categories that are affected.

Links to Websites and Third Party Content

The contents of our website may, in turn, refer to other websites and their contents. These websites are not under the responsibility and control of Hackabu. These websites may have separate privacy policies. Hackabu is not responsible for the use and content of these websites and assumes no liability or responsibility for these and the data processing associated with the visit.

Use of Data from our Website

We permit interested third parties to use data contained on our website for information purposes, with reference to our authorship. Any further use – especially of our logo – requires the express consent of Hackabu GmbH.

IP Addresses

For every request to a website, the visitor’s IP address is transmitted to the web server. This is necessary for technical reasons to be able to send the answer to the right recipient. IP addresses are assigned by Internet Service Providers as soon as their customers connect to the Internet. Providers can understand which IP address one of their customers used at a given time. A request to the Internet Service Provider can therefore theoretically determine the identity of a single visitor. For security reasons (for example to prevent hacker attacks) we store the IP addresses of all visitor requests. The generated logs are only used to track security violations and are only viewed in case of suspicion. The IP addresses are also not stored permanently, but deleted after a maximum of 4 weeks.


Cookies are very small files that are written from a website to the visitor’s computer. They can not be used to read other data on the computer. Websites use cookies to restore past user preferences and understand the history of visitor queries.

Hackabu uses cookies to better tailor the offer on Hackabu and its subdomains to the needs of our customers and to structure the content of our websites in the best possible way. The information is also used to further enhance the navigation structure of Hackabu and its subdomains and make it more user-friendly. Additional cookies may be set by various other providers whose additional services are offered on our websites. We have no influence on these providers and do not use their cookies for their own purposes.


Hackabu uses the following cookies on this website:

  • Performance cookies that ensure optimal performance of the website.
  • Google Analytics cookies for information about the use of the website.
  • Cookies for the use of e.g. Adform Retargeting to specifically target people with interest-based advertising who are already interested in our services on websites operated by third parties.


By default, all cookies are accepted by any Internet browser. However, you can instruct your browser not to accept cookies or to automatically delete them after each Internet session. Please refer to the corresponding instructions on the support pages of your browser manufacturer.


You can also disable cookies from various advertisers via the following website:

The newsletter is distributed via “MailChimp”, a newsletter shipping platform of Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.


The e-mail addresses of our Newsletter recipients, as well as their other information described in these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or passes them on to third parties.


We rely on the reliability, IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU privacy shield “Privacy Shield” and is committed to complying with EU data protection requirements. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp pledges to protect the data of our users, to process it in accordance with its privacy policy on our behalf and, in particular, not to disclose it to third parties. The privacy policy of MailChimp can be viewed here.

Statistical Surveys & Analyses

The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior by means of their call locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times.

Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our desire nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Google Analytics & Google Optimize 360

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through the websites of advertisers.

Processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO from the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the impact and efficiency of this advertising.
