In the following, we provide information about the collection of personal data when using our mobile app (hereinafter only "App").
Personal data is any data that can be related to a specific natural person, such as their name or IP address.
The controller within the meaning of Art. 4 (7) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is EichGnomies GmbH & Co. KG, Peter-Händel-Straße 10, 91334 Hemhofen, Germany, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are legally represented by EichGnomies Verwaltungs-GmbH, Managing Director Philipp Eichhorn.
Our data protection officer can be reached via heyData GmbH, Schützenstraße 5, 10117 Berlin, https://www.heydata.eu, E-Mail: email@example.com.
We detail the scope of data processing, processing purposes and legal bases below. In principle, the following come into consideration as the legal basis for data processing:
Insofar as we transfer data to service providers or other third parties outside the EEA, the security of the data during the transfer is guaranteed by adequacy decisions of the EU Commission, insofar as they exist (e.g. for Great Britain, Canada and Israel) (Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR).
If no adequacy decision exists (e.g. for the USA), the legal basis for the data transfer are usually, i.e. unless we indicate otherwise, standard contractual clauses. These are a set of rules adopted by the EU Commission and are part of the contract with the respective third party. According to Art. 46 para. 2 lit. b GDPR, they ensure the security of the data transfer. Many of the providers have given contractual guarantees that go beyond the standard contractual clauses to protect the data. These include, for example, guarantees regarding the encryption of data or regarding an obligation on the part of the third party to notify data subjects if law enforcement agencies wish to access the respective data.
Data subjects have the following rights against us with regard to their personal data:
Data subjects also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of their personal data. Contact details of the data protection supervisory authorities are available at https://www.bfdi.bund.de/EN/Service/Anschriften/Laender/Laender-node.html.
Within the scope of the business or other relationship, customers, prospective customers or third parties need to provide us with personal data that is necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of a business or other relationship or that we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will generally have to refuse to conclude the contract or to provide a service or will no longer be able to perform an existing contract or other relationship.
Mandatory data are marked as such.
As a matter of principle, we do not use a fully automated decision-making process in accordance with article 22 GDPR to establish and implement the business or other relationship. Should we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform of this separately if this is required by law.
When contacting us, e.g. by e-mail or telephone, the data provided to us (e.g. names and e-mail addresses) will be stored by us in order to answer questions. The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR) to answer inquiries directed to us. We delete the data accruing in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.
Our app is ready for download at Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store (hereinafter "Stores"). When users download the app, the necessary information is transmitted to the stores, i.e. in particular user name, e-mail address and customer number of the account, time of download, payment information and the individual device identification number. We have no influence on this data collection and are not responsible for it. We process the data only insofar as it is necessary for downloading the mobile app to the user's mobile device.
Our app is hosted by AWS (EU Server). The provider thereby processes the personal data transmitted via the app, e.g. on content, usage, meta/communication data or contact data. It is our legitimate interest to provide an app, so that the legal basis of the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.
When users use our app, we collect the data that is technically necessary for us to offer users the functions of our app and to ensure stability and security. This is our legitimate interest, so that the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data processed to this extent are:
The app requests the user's access to functions of the end device or to data of the device in order to be able to execute functions of the app. By allowing access, the user gives consent to the associated data processing, so that the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. Users can revoke their consent at any time by terminating access in the settings of their end device. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing until the revocation.
The functions or data processed to this extent are
In the app, users can create the digital advent calendar "My Advent". When creating the digital advent calendars, the following data is processed:
The processing of the data takes place for the performance of the contract concluded with the respective site visitor (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO).
We automatically delete advent calendars 15 months after they were last accessed.
We use Amazon AWS for hosting. The provider is Amazon Web Services EMEA Sarl, 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855, Luxemburg. The provider processes usage data (e.g. web pages visited, interest in content, access times) and meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses) in the EU.
The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in maintaining a modern and cost-effective hosting environment.
