2. Processing of personal data

 

 2.1 Access and use of the App together with the UV Analyzer Stick

 

We collect information about how you use our App and interact with us, and store data about your mobile device (server log files). The access data consists of the date and time the App is accessed, the time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the content of the request (specific page), the volume of data transmitted, a report of successful access (HTTP response code), the language and version of the browser used, the operating system used and its access status, the referrer URL (i.e. the previous page visited), the IP address and the requesting provider. We use this log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, optimizing and ensuring the security of our App. 

 

We also use this data to collect anonymous information about the number of visitors to our App (traffic) and about the extent to which and the way in which our App and services are used. Based on this information, we can provide personalized and location-specific content, analyze data traffic, detect and resolve errors and improve our services. We reserve the right to check the protocol data retrospectively if there is justified suspicion of unlawful use on the basis of concrete evidence. 

 

We store the name of our customer to the serial number of the respective UV Analyzer Stick but only to improve the functions of the Stick and to eliminate any bugs.

 

The legal framework for processing data in accordance with the aforementioned sections is article 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. Our interests in processing data are, in particular, ensuring that our App runs and is secure, investigating how visitors use our App and simplifying the use of our App.

 

If you enter your e-mail address in the designated field in the App, we check the e-mail address to provide backend functionality to administrators. The legal framework for processing this data is article 6 para. 1 b) of the GDPR.

 

 

 

2.2 Contact via Email

 

If you contact us (e.g. via our contact form or e-mail), we save the necessary contact details so that we can process your request and any related requests. The legal framework for processing data is article 6 para. 1 b) of the GDPR.

 

We only save and use other personal data if you give your consent for us to do so or if this is permitted by law.

 

 

 

2.3 Storage period

 

The personal data processed by us will be stored by us for as long as required for the respective purpose - in particular the use of the App - in compliance with the statutory retention periods (e.g. in accordance with the German Commercial Code and Fiscal Code ten years for tax-relevant documents and six years for other business letters) (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR). Storage beyond the statutory retention periods is possible if you have consented to this in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or the purpose of the data processing has not yet ceased.

 

 

 

3. Your Rights as a Person Affected by Data Processing

 

Under the conditions of Art. 15 to Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to obtain information free of charge about the data we have stored about you, to have incorrect data corrected and to request the deletion or restriction of processing as well as the portability of your personal data. In some cases, however, we are not allowed to delete user data completely due to legal retention obligations.

 

You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time with effect for the future.

 

You may object to the use of personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation at any time with effect for the future.

 

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the EU Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of an alleged infringement.

 

 

 

4. Data Security

 

We ensure the security of your data within the relevant data protection laws and state of the art technical capabilities. All data is transferred using encryption. We use the encryption system SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), but please note that absolute security cannot be guaranteed when transmitting data online (e.g. via e-mail correspondence). It is not possible to ensure complete protection from access by third parties. In order to secure your data, we take technical and organisational security measures which we always keep up to date with the current state of technology. We also cannot guarantee that our service will be available at certain times; errors, disruptions and outages are not completely avoidable. The servers we use are backed up thoroughly and regularly.

 

 

 

5. Automated Decision-Making

 

Automated decision-making does not occur on the basis of collecting personal data.

 

 

 

6. Passing Data on to Third Parties; No Transfer of Data to Non-EU Countries

 

As a matter of principle, we only use your personal data within our company. If and to the extent that we are involved with third parties for the purpose of fulfilling a contract, they will only receive personal data which is necessary for the relevant service. In the case that we outsource particular parts of our data processing, we will bind the data processor by contract to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection law and to guarantee the protection of the rights of the data subject. Transferring data to bodies or persons outside of the EU do not occur and are not planned.
