INFORMATION THAT IS AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED WHEN YOU USE THE APP
When you use the app, we automatically collect certain information that is necessary for use of the app. This data is stored in log files on our server. This includes:
• date and time at which the app was accessed,
• date and time at which the app content was downloaded (for statistical purposes),
• file(s) accessed,
• quantities of data accessed/sent,
• operating system used, version of the operating system used, and
• anonymized IP address of the user (while data is being transmitted / only saved for the duration of the session / deleted after a maximum of 24 hours).
This data is processed separately from other data. This data is not processed together with the user’s other personal data. It is not possible for us to connect this information to a specific person.
Purpose of data processing:
It is necessary for the system to temporarily process your data in order to provide you with this service and the corresponding functions, to improve the functions and characteristics of the app, and to prevent and/or remedy misuse and malfunctions. In order to do this, the user’s IP address must be stored during the entire session.
The data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the app. Furthermore, we use this information to optimize the services we offer and our app and to ensure that our information technology systems are secure. The data saved for these reasons is not used or evaluated for marketing purposes.
Legal basis for data processing:
This data processing is justified by the fact that (1) the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract between you as the data subject and us in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR in order for you to be able to use the app or (2) we have a legitimate interest in maintaining the functionality of the app and ensuring that it can be operated without errors or malfunctions, as well as in our ability to offer service in line with the market and in accordance with the wishes and needs of interested parties, and that this legitimate interest overrides your interest in the protection of your personal data in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
Duration of storage:
Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was obtained. In terms of the data collected for the provision of the app, this is the case as soon as the session in question ends. Data saved in the log files is deleted after 24 hours at the latest. It is possible that data could be stored for longer than 24 hours. In this case, the IP address of the user is deleted or anonymized so that it is no longer possible to associate it with the end device that accessed the website.
Options for objection and removal:
The collection of data required for the provision of the app and the storage of data in log files is essential in order to use the app. For this reason, the user cannot opt out.
