Data protection

INSITE IT takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal information confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG) and this privacy policy, which applies to all Insite LMS services. 

Please note that we offer our services only to businesses and not consumers.  

As a provider of cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) products, in particular the Insite LMS solution, INSITE IT primarily acts as a processor for users of its products within the meaning of Article 4 (8) GDPR. 

This privacy policy concerns the processing in which INSITE IT GmbH, Blumauerstraße 3-5, 4020 Linz (Austria) registered under FN 373683 i at the Commercial Court Linz is the Controller within the meaning of Article 4 (7) GDPR (hereafter called the “we”).  

The Controller’s Data Protection Officer can be reached at the above-mentioned address and via email at 

We point out that in some cases the infrastructure used to operate the Insite LMS services is not operated by INSITE IT itself. If so, the data is stored and processed by using the Microsoft Windows Azure cloud computing service. Therefore, we also refer to Microsoft privacy policy. Hosting is within the EU.

By using the applications, you agree to the processing of the collected data.

  • In addition, the customer takes all reasonable measures to protect the stored data and information against unauthorized access by third parties. If third parties still succeed in gaining access to the data and information in an unlawful manner, INSITE IT is not responsible. 

  • The customer may invite other users (e.g., their subcontractors) to enter their e-mail address(s) to use the software for a specific project. In this case, the customer will obtain in advance the verified approval of the respective user for the use of his personal data. 



INSITE IT processes the following customer data for the purposes stated below and the customer expressly agrees to this processing. The customer can revoke his approval at any time.

  • Personal user data: When registering a user, we store the user´s e-mail address, first and last name and personal password for login to the applications. In addition, each user can also register for e-mail and push notifications.    

  • Customer files: Within the use of Insite LMS services, the customer can for example save logistics data, photos or documents for a specific project. The stored files will be accessible to any user the customer has activated for this project and is entitled to see this data. The customer can delete the files and data stored by him at any time. 

  • Login: If a user logs in with an e-mail address and a personal password for an application, we save the login time. If data is changed by a user, this is also logged for traceability.
