IV. General information regarding data processing
a. Scope of the processing of personal data
On principle, we collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for providing a functional App as well as our contents and services. The collection and utilisation of the personal data of our users is carried out regularly only after having received the user’s consent. An exception applies in such cases in which a prior obtaining of consent is not possible for factual reasons and where the processing of the data is permitted by statutory regulations.
b. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
To the extent that we obtain a declaration of consent of the data subject for the processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 Par. 1 Lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In case of the processing of personal data that is required for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a contractual party, Art. 6 Par. 1 Lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis. This shall also apply to processing operations that are necessary for the carrying out of pre-contractual measures.
To the extent that a processing of personal data is required for the fulfilment of a contractual obligation that our company is subject to, Art. 6 Par. 1 Lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis.
In case vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person make a processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 Par. 1 Lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis.
If the processing is necessary for maintaining a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, basic rights, and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 Par. 1 Lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for the processing.
c. Data erasure and duration of storage
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or restricted as soon as the purpose of storage no longer exists. A storage can, furthermore, be performed if this is provided for by the European or national legislatures in rules, laws, or other regulations under European Union law applicable to the Controller. A restriction or erasure of the data is also performed if a storage period prescribed by the specified standards expires unless a necessity exists for further storage of the data for conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
V. Provision of the App and creation of log files
a. Scope of the processing of personal data
Each time the App is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system calling it up. During this process, the following data are collected:
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This does not apply to the IP addresses of the user or other data that allows for an attribution of the data to a user. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.
b. Legal basis for the data processing
Legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is Art. 6 Par. 1 Lit. f GDPR.
c. Purpose of the data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to make possible a delivery of the App to the user’s computer. To effect this, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. This also constitutes our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 Lit. f GDPR.
d. Duration of storage
The data will be erased as soon as they are no longer necessary for achieving the purpose for which they were collected. In case of collection of the data for provision of the App, this is the case once the respective session has ended.
e. Option to object and remove
The collection of the data for the provision of the App and the storage of the data in log files is mandatorily required for the operation of the App. Therefore, no option to object exists for the user.
VI. Rights of the data subject
