Subscriptions

If you want to become a member of the SobiPro Club, you can choose between different subscription plans. Please check the membership descriptions to find out which plans are available and what they contain.

The club membership is a service orientated membership that grants you access to additional resources and benefits. It does not give you any warranty or additional rights related to the products we offer with or without a subscription.

The Club membership is time-limited. The membership period (subscription time) is set according to the selected subscription plan.

Each of the subscription plans includes the time-limited access to the support area (ticket system), the time-limited access to the documentation and according to the chosen subscription plan, additional enhancements (software) for SobiPro and other benefits specified by the respective plan, if any.

GDPR compliance at Sigsiu.NET GmbH

On May 25th, 2018 the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. Sigsiu.NET GmbH is taking care about your privacy and security. Please see the following common questions according the personal data handling at Sigsiu.NET GmbH.

 I am a customer of yours (bought a membership in the past) but I cannot longer login. I get "Username and password do not match or you do not have an account yet.". When I try to get my username or reset my password, I get "Reminder failed: User not found." resp. "Reset password failed: Invalid email address". But I am sure my email address is correct. Why I can't login 
Probably you haven't logged in the last 18 (eighteen) months to our site. We are sorry, but in this case your account have been deleted automatically in the meantime. Please create a new account for your next purchase.
 What can I do to prevent my account from being deleted automatically 
If you want your user account to not be deleted, just log into our site at least once every 18 months. You DO NOT have to make any purchase.
 Can you exempt my account from being deleted automatically 
Unfortunately we cannot exempt you from the account deletion policy even if you ask us to. The law does not give us that option.
 Which personal data do you collect 
Please find the list of the data we collect in our privacy statementy. All the information the European Union requires us to make available to you is in there.
 How long do you store my personal data 
We will delete your data profile automatically 18 months after your last subscription expires or you last logged into our site, whichever comes later.
However, we are going to be ramping up the deletion period over time. We will start with an 30 month cutoff period (instead of 18 months) until September. Then we will reduce it to 24 months. On January 2019 we will reduce it again to 18 months.
 Can I revoke my consent to processing personal information 
You can withdraw your consent at any time but we won't be able to provide any of our services to you until you give your consent again.
 What happens when I revoke my consent to processing personal information 
Should you revoke your consent you will only be able to use the logged out (public) version of our site until you give your consent again.
 How can I revoke or give again my consent to processing personal information 
You can revoke (or give again) your consent using the self-service Personal Data Options page. You can get to that self-service page in the following ways:
  • Click on this link: Personal Data Options
  • Click on the Personal Data Options link you can find at the footer of every page of our site after logging in.
  • Log in. Then click on My Profile link from the "My Club" dropdown menu. Click on the Edit Profile link at the top right of that page. On the edit page scroll down until you find the Personal Data Options header. Click the "Manage your personal data options" link next to it.
 How can I exercise my data portability right 
You can export your profile with us using the self-service Personal Data Options page. You can get to that self-service page in the following ways:
  • Click on this link: Personal Data Options
  • Click on the Personal Data Options link you can find at the footer of every page of our site after logging in.
  • Log in. Then click on My Profile link from the "My Club" dropdown menu. Click on the Edit Profile link at the top right of that page. On the edit page scroll down until you find the Personal Data Options header. Click the "Manage your personal data options" link next to it.

 I tried to delete my account, but it says "The user account cannot be deleted automatically right now.". Why 
Probably you have purchased a subscription within the last 180 days. We cannot delete your account until this many days elapse since this information is used for tax reporting and as evidence of service provisioning in case of a payment dispute. Legal requirements trump GDPR provisions in these cases. Of course after 180 days from your last purchase you can delete your user account without refund if you so wish.
 How can I correct my personal information 
Your right to amendment is possible through the My Profile link from the "My Club" drop-down menu on our site once you log in.
 How do you store my personal data in backups 
We create encrypted archives with a strong password and store them in an encrypted cloud storage on our servers located in Germany (EU ground). Older backups will be copied to a local encrypted hard drive not accessible to the public (no incoming connection from the Internet) and deleted from the cloud storage.
 What about the security of credentials I give in a support ticket 
Never add credentials to a public ticket. When filing a public ticket or when you are providing your ticket system signature you have no reasonable expectation of privacy and as such any information volunteered in a public ticket is not subject to our privacy statement.
Sensitive information you add to a private ticket will be redacted from the ticket and put in encrypted storage by the support staff. As soon as you close a ticket, the data stored in the encrypted storage are immediately deleted.
 The ticket emails you send do not longer contain the ticket content. Why 
According to the GDPR, we cannot longer send the content of private tickets via un-encrypted emails. As implementing support for encrypted emails in the ticket system is complicated and technically infeasible in most cases, private emails will not longer contain the ticket content. Please go to the support area of our site to read the ticket content.
 The ticket system shows my picture I uploaded to Gravatar. Is this GDPR compliant 
Using Gravatar is GDPR compliant. No personally identifiable information is transmitted to Gravatar. What is transmitted is an MD5 sum of the email address. This is a pseudonymous identifier which can NOT be decoded back to the personal information (email address). Transmitting pseudonymous identifiers is GDPR compliant. If you do not want to have your picture shown, remove it from Gravatar or use a different email address with us.
 Do other users see the content of my tickets or my name 
Public tickets are shown to other users. If you do not what to have them shown file a private ticket. By default, the system generates private tickets.
However, all your tickets are anonymized. That means your name is not shown to other users, only the ticket title and content.
 What happens to my personal data after I requested its deletion 
  • Your user name will be pseudonymized to something like “user1234”.
  • Your email address will be pseudonymized to something like “user1234@example.com”.
  • Your name on the user account will be pseudonymized to something like “User 1234”.
  • Your password will be changed to a random one.
  • Your account creation and last access time will be set to a fake date, before this site existed.
  • Any administrator notes on your user (a.k.a. user notes) will be deleted.
  • Any additional user profile fields will be removed or emptied, depending on what is technically feasible.
  • The server-side security keys for the Remember Me feature will be removed.
  • The user account will be stripped of all its access privileges, making it impossible to log in or reset the password.
  • Your abandoned subscription attempts (where you never tried to pay) will be deleted.
  • All other subscriptions and subscription attempts (where you tried to pay, no matter if it was successful or not) will be pseudonymized by replacing the transaction identifier with a random one and removing the IP address and browser User Agent information from them. Any notes we had made on the subscription, e.g. recording a special circumstance for giving you a discount, will be removed.
  • All invoicing information we have collected on our system will be removed.
  • All invoices and credit notes will be removed from our site. Clarification: we are legally required to keep a backup copy of the actual invoices and credit notes and an off-line record with their metadata for at least ten fiscal years since the transaction took place. This obligation overrides your right to be forgotten per the GDPR, therefore these copies will not be deleted but they will also not be used for any other purpose than taxation and legal obligations of the company.
  • All of your private and public tickets will be deleted, including their posts and attachments.
