- Google Analytics Firebase
We use the developer platform „Google Firebase“ and the associated functions and services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“). Google Firebase is a platform for the development of apps for mobile devices and websites. Google Firebase offers a variety of features, which you can find at the following website: https://firebase.google.com/products/.
Analysis of user interactions is performed using analytics service of Firebase Analytics. This service helps us record your interactions. Events such as opening an app for the first time, uninstalling an app, updates, crashes, or how often you use the app are recorded. Certain user interests are also recorded and analyzed.
The information processed by Google Firebase about your use of this app is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, Google will reduce your IP address in the Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand and thus anonymize it. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and anonymized there. The data may also be used for other Google services such as Google Analytics and Google Marketing Services. In this case, only pseudonymous information, such as the Android Advertising ID or the Advertising Identifier for iOS, is processed to identify the users‘ mobile devices.

- Sentry (Crash Reporting)
We use the services of Sentry, 45 Fremont Street 8th Floor San Francisco, CA 94105, to detect, analyze, and troubleshoot errors in the app. We receive crash reports for this purpose. This involves collecting information about the device used and how our app was used (e.g., the timestamp, when the app was launched, and when the crash occurred), which allows us to diagnose and resolve issues. The processing of this data is necessary for us to further improve the stability and security of the app and is based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).
- Prevention of Prohibited Content (Sightengine and Report Button)
We use the services of Sightenginge, 16 bis rue d’Odessa, 75014 Paris, France, to check the appropriateness of photos that users of our app upload as profile pictures or into their gallery. In this way, we aim to prevent prohibited content from being uploaded. “Prohibited content” included, in particular, photos that glorify violence or alcohol and drug, or photos that are pornographic. The security of the uploaded photos is also checked. The security scan of photos that are to be uploaded and that may show natural persons serves the security of our app and the protection of other users of the app. It is based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).
- Third Party Websites
It is possible for users to embed website links in the app. When you call up the website links, you leave our app and your device’s browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the respective website. The respective privacy policies of this website then apply.
- Contact Form and newsletter
We process your personal data when you use our contact form. If you contact us via the contact form provided, your data will be stored in order to answer your inquiry. The legal basis is either the fulfillment of a contractual obligation or our legitimate interest in providing a contact form (Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR or Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). You are neither obliged to contact us via the contact form nor to provide personal data. If you do not provide your personal data, we may not be able to process your request. Otherwise, there will be no consequences for you. If you would like detailed information on the balance of interests, please contact us via one of the contact options listed under section 1.
If you register for our newsletter, we process your e-mail address and send you a confirmation e-mail with a confirmation link that you must click on to subscribe to our newsletter. You can cancel the newsletter at any time and object to it at any time. You will find a possibility to declare your objection in every newsletter that we send you. The data protection justification for sending the newsletter is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). For sending the newsletter, we use Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin, as a processor in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. The newsletter solution from Sendinblue GmbH is hosted in data centers in Germany. However, Sendinblue GmbH has affiliated companies in unsafe third countries (in particular the USA and India), to which data may be transferred (see section 9 on data transfers outside the EEA).
- Website Protection
To prevent unauthorized access to your data by third parties, we are guided by the latest technical and organizational possibilities. We therefore also use SSL encryption for all our areas to ensure the best possible data security. However, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. We can therefore unfortunately not guarantee complete protection of data against access by third parties.
- Transfer to Third Parties and to States Outside the European Economic Area
Your personal data will only be transferred to third parties if this is permitted by law or if you have given your prior consent. We will only pass on your data to state authorities within the scope of legal obligations or on the basis of an official order or court decision.
With the exception of the processing described in sections 3, 4, 6.5 – 6.9 and 7 (newsletter) we do not pass on your data to recipients based outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. The processing operations described in sections 3, 4, 6.5 – 6.9 and 7 (newsletter) result in data being transferred to the servers of the providers commissioned by us. Some of these servers are located in the USA. If the servers are located in Europe, it cannot be completely ruled out that data may nevertheless be transferred to the USA because the providers are US providers or have affiliated companies in the USA or other unsafe third countries. The data transfer takes place on the basis of so-called standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.
We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. In certain cases, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
- Automatic Deletion, Deletion Period
We delete your personal data as soon as they are no longer required for the aforementioned purposes of processing, in the event of an objection where there are no compelling reasons worthy of protection or in the event of revocation where there is no other legal basis for processing. In certain cases, e.g. if there is a legal obligation to retain data, your personal data will initially be blocked and deleted upon expiry of the retention period.
- Your Rights
As a data subject, you have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether personal data relating to you is being processed by us and, if so, the right to obtain information about such personal data (Art. 15 GDPR), the right to have your inaccurate data corrected (Art. 16 GDPR), the right to have your data deleted (Art. 17 GDPR) and the right to have your data restricted (blocked) (Art. 18. GDPR).
In addition, in the event of processing on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. e or lit. f of the GDPR, you may object to the processing (Art. 21 GDPR), whereby you must provide a specific reason, except in the case of direct marketing.
If you have provided this data, you can request the transfer of the data (Art. 20 GDPR). Whether and to what extent these rights exist in individual cases and under what conditions they apply is specified by law in the designated standards. If the processing is based on consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR, you may revoke this consent at any time for the future (Art. 7 (3) GDPR). You also have the right to contact the competent data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).
- No Automated Individual Decision
We do not use your personal data for automated individual decisions within the meaning of Art. 22 (1) GDPR.
