Your data is as important to us as it is to you. We have summarized the most important facts on this subject here:
I. Your data in your company (LAN / W-LAN)
Data security - Highest standard
We set up an independent, encrypted WiFi network in your restaurant only for the GASTROFIX POS-System. The order terminals communicate with each other in encrypted form using the WPA2 security standard, which is regarded as secure.
Each transaction (order, payment, cancellation,...) is synchronized with all other devices on the network in seconds. This means that all data in multi-user systems is backed up redundantly (i. e. double and triple) several times over. If one device ever fails, data on the other devices will be complete. In addition, all data will be transferred to the cloud immediately if you have an working Internet connection; of course only if you want to.
Reliability - No permanent internet connection needed
You don't need an internet connection to operate your restaurant. GASTROFIX runs for hours, days, even weeks without an internet connection. The only options that need an internet connection are the master data maintenance and the comprehensive evaluations available in the cloud-based back office. X and Z reports are also possible at any time from any POS-terminal in your local network.
As soon as an internet connection is available again, all data is encrypted (SSL security standard) and synchronized with your personal cloud. (We also have customers who don't have internet access at their store. This is also possible without any problems. All day long, the work is simply done via the local WLAN network. After work, the master device is taken home with you where an internet connection is available. A few minutes later, the current day shift is available in the cloud for analysis.
The 16 GB storage capacity of the smallest iPad configuration is sufficient to store more than 20 years of item-specific order and transaction data. Turnover data is much smaller than pictures, music or videos!
Legal security - no worries with the tax office
All sales are in accordance with the latest regulations of the tax office and conform to the GoBD. Both on your iPad and (if desired) in the cloud.
II. Your data in the cloud
The Cloud - What does it actually mean?
The storage and evaluation of data is no longer carried out exclusively on the user's side (e. g. on their own hard disk or the server), but centrally at GASTROFIX. Over the internet - you don't have to worry about location, hard drives, storage capacity or regular backups, and no software needs to be installed or updated. We take care of everything and pass on the cost and benefit advantages to you through your personal cloud.
Reliability - Double redundant servers
GASTROFIX operates two identical server clusters for your security. These are located in German data centers with separate power supply and multiple internet connections.
Thanks to this double server structure, all data is constantly mirrored on the second server. If the first server fails, the second server will be activated immediately. In addition, each of these two servers has redundant hard disks, so that the failure of one of these two servers does not cause any damage or even data loss.
Maximum data security - SSL encryption
All data from and to the cloud is transmitted via SSL encryption (same security standard as for online banking) and stored in encrypted form in German data centers on GASTROFIX servers.
GASTROFIX meets the strict German legal regulations for data protection, in particular the relevant provisions of the Telemediengesetzes (TMG) and Telekommunikationsgesetz (TKG) as well as the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) through the servers operated in Germany.
Your data belongs to you! - Downloadable at any time
Your data is available to you at any time and anywhere: On one hand, all transaction data ever generated is always stored in encoded form on all used iPads / iPods. On the other hand, with an existing Internet connection, the data is transmitted to your personal cloud in a few seconds. There you can export your transaction data in GoBD-compliant format to a CSV or Excel spreadsheet at any time and save it locally at home.
