By introducing GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in 2018, the EU imposed strict business regulations regarding the processing and storage of personal data.
ownCloud Online helps bring your business in line with GDPR utilising Privacy by Design, open-source code, end-to end-encryption and Zero-Knowledge-Technology, all residing on servers located in Germany.
“Well knowing that even people working at ownCloud cannot access the data that I am uploading is a good feeling. Using ownCloud really creates that feeling of security that I wanted.”Verified 5-star rating on Gartner Peer Insights
Florian Lenz, Product Manager ownCloud Online
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a law aimed at protecting personal data and privacy in Europe. These regulations impact the way we do business, not only at the company level but on a personal level, too.
Non-compliance can result in considerable penalties: Businesses found to be in violation may face a fine of up to 20 million Euro or 4% of the company’s annual gross (worldwide).
We want to support you with this issue. ownCloud.online follows a strict, client-orientated policy to ensure security, control and compliance.

Both technical and organisational measures are fundamental to fulfil the requirements of GDPR, ownCloud.online enables your business to implement provisions of data protection while simultaneously allowing you to work with and share your data. You can control who has access to the personal data; you can implement data activity and internal security protocols for data administration and so much more.
We’d like to take the time to explain the most important issues regarding GDPR and
show you how ownCloud Oonline helps you to be compliant.
EU GDPR ARTICLE 32:
“SECURITY OF PROCESSING“
Save confidential business reports, manage personnel files, share design drawings with business partners or store patient records securely.
This is why you are GDPR compliant with ownCloud Online:
All of your data is transferred encrypted – always.
With active end-to-end encryption, your data will even be protected in the case of unauthorised transmission; the data will be unreadable and therefore GDPR safe.
Multi-factor authentication and password regulations give effective protection against potential cyber-attacks.
Every upload is virus-scanned in real-time and, if there are any security concerns, will be blocked. Auto-backup makes sure your data is always available for you when you need it.
ownCloud Online is one of the few providers offering single-tenancy architecture. The single-tenancy architecture ensures that every client receives their own allocated storage and memory.
Data activity is logged, and you can retrace every change via the integrated auditing tool.
„ownCloud comes with good admin controls. It follows strict security mechanisms/practices, as the web attacks are increasing gradually. Till now I didn't find any kind of drawback while using it. Good to go with ownCloud.“Verified 5-star rating on Gartner Peer Insights
EU GDPR ARTICLE 25:
„DATA PROTECTION BY DESIGN AND BY DEFAULT“
EU GDPR ARTICLE 5:
„PRINCIPLES RELATING TO PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA“
Data protection and privacy have always been part of the foundation of ownCloud Online, even before GDPR. ownCloud was founded in 2010, and since the very beginning, we have been dedicated to the belief that privacy and data protection are fundamental human rights. With this as our basic business ideology, we focus on Privacy by Default and Privacy by Design.
GDPR simply strengthens our policies and ideology.
ownCloud Online offers the most secure and convenient cloud solution for SMEs, enterprises, NGO’s, journalists, doctors, lawyers as well as for private clients.
Our server centres are certified according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 18001, ISO 27001, ISO 50001, ISAE 3402 – SOC 1+2 in addition to other classifications. Virus scanners and firewalls check every upload and, if there are any security concerns, will be blocked.
Through our single-tenancy architecture, we create individual workspaces while effectively storing client data separately.
German server centres are subject to German law, ensuring providers have no obligation towards any authority requesting disclosure or access to data (as opposed to US-based providers for example, who are subject to the CLOUD-Act). Even in case of a presumed criminal offence, German authorities only have limited access to your data. However, these conditions only apply to providers with both their company and server location in Germany.
Only ownCloud Online offers you this: where protection of your data is concerned we make no compromises.
“ownCloud is the platform that can guarantee you full data protection and security at all stages of your work with this tool.”
