Timeline

Overview

The Swobbl UG (haftungsbeschränkt) was founded on April 24, 2014, and is based in Stetten am Bodensee, Germany. The purpose of the company is the provision of data-safe and comfortable Internet services. You will find our philosophy here.

Our Goals

We have set ourselves the goal of making data protection on the Internet mass-effective. For this, we are working to make complex and high-quality encryption user-friendly. This includes, on the one hand, the protection of users on websites as well as the protection of the user's data stored on the Internet (e.g., mail and cloud systems)

Furthermore, we have set ourselves the goal of breaking Europe's dependence on large international IT companies. Facebook Inc., with its social network of the same name, has a market share of more than 80% in social media. With their search engine, Google Inc. has a market share of over 90% in the search engine sector in Germany.

We consider the dependency and possible influence of Europe as a result of these IT companies to be unacceptable.

Our Servers

In order to ensure the protection of our users' data, we only operate our own servers in Switzerland. We do not use servers from cloud data centers.

We use PFS ("Perfect Forward Secrecy") on all our servers. This ensures that the safest transport encryption is always used to protect our users from espionage and manipulated connections.

Services, e.g. The Swobbl-Cloud comprehensively encrypts the data of the users so far that even we as operators of the servers do not have access to it.

In addition to data protection, sustainability is also very important to us. For this reason, all of our servers are operated with 100% eco-friendly electricity.

How do we finance ourselves?

We provide the majority of our services free of charge. To finance the company, there is the possibility to place advertisements on the search engine. The advertising is only displayed using the entered search terms and there is no user-specific delivery. (please refer to Our philosophy)

For some services the possibility exists to extend the storage space for a small fee.

All basic functions are available free of charge.
