Data protection notices

We (the Publisher and any separate providers) thank you for your interest in this app. We are committed to protecting your privacy as an app user. This document explains how we handle personal data with regard to the app. “Personal data” means all information that relates to a natural person who has been or can be identified. The way we handle personal data is always based on our applicable Data Protection Policy.

1 Responsibility

For the purposes of these data protection regulations/notices, the terms “Publisher” or “We” are always used, regardless of whether the Publisher is the sole party to the contract under Section 1.1 of EULA (see Part I of the Terms of Use) or another provider is listed in the app’s provider information (under “Provider”). In this case, the Provider is responsible under data protection laws, otherwise the Publisher is responsible.

2 Scope and purposes of data processing

2.1 Data categories

We process personal data of the users that the users enter when signing on to and using the app, data that they approve for processing on the device, and data relating to the use of the app (Location).

Providing data of this kind is not required by law or under a contract, nor to conclude a contract. Users are not obligated to provide data of this kind. However, if this data is not provided, it may mean that the app’s functions and use are limited.

2.2 Purposes of data processing

We process the aforementioned data pursuant to the applicable data protection laws. Data is processed for the following purposes:

  1. Contract fulfillment

    We process personal data to fulfill the contract with you for use of the app (provision of the app and its functions) to the extent necessary.

    We generally delete the personal data once further processing is no longer needed for the purposes of contract fulfillment. Further storage or processing takes place only as set forth in the section “Term of storage and deletion.”

  2. Consent to data processing

    If you have consented to the processing of personal data for additional purposes (e.g. for the evaluation of usage data, see the section on “Evaluation of usage data“),the data will be processed on the basis of this consent.

    Consent is always voluntary and you can opt out at any time. In general, if you grant consent in the app, you can revoke consent there as well; you can also revoke consent by sending an e-mail to the address listed in the provider information. Opting out has no effect on the lawfulness of data processing that took place between the time you opted in and the time you opted out. It also has no effect on continued processing of the information on another legal basis, such as to fulfill legal obligations (see section titled “Compliance with legal requirements”).

  3. Protection of legitimate interests

    If required, we process your personal data beyond contractual fulfillment in order to protect legitimate interests of the publisher or of third parties. Legitimate interests include maintaining the functionality and security of our IT systems.

    We generally delete this personal data once further processing or archiving is no longer needed to protect the respective legitimate interest. Further storage or processing takes place only as set forth in the section “Term of storage and deletion.”

  4. Compliance with legal requirements

    Our company is subject to legal obligations and requirements, such as retention obligations under commercial and tax laws.
