Insofar as Jimdo processes, collects, saves or uses personal data (e.g. employee data, customer data etc.) for the Jimdo Boost user, via the Jimdo Boost services, Jimdo shall only do so in accordance with the strict instructions of the Jimdo Boost user and the respective agreement for the commissioned data processing, and as reflected in this privacy policy.

Via the Firebase integration of the encryption certificates a so called transport encryption is enabled which protects the communication from unauthorized third-party access.
