Section 2: Information about the processing of personal data

(1) In addition to our online offer, we provide you with a mobile app that you can download to your mobile device. In the following, we inform you about the processing of personal data when using our mobile app. Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, contact data, and user behaviour.

(2) When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We delete the data accruing in this context, if the inquiry is assigned to a contract, after the time limits for the term of the contract, otherwise after the storage is no longer necessary [usually after three years], or restrict the processing if there are legal obligations to retain the data.

(3) If we use service providers for individual functions of our product or wish to use your data for advertising purposes, we will always carefully select and monitor these service providers and inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we also state the specified criteria for the storage period.

Section 3: Processing of personal data when using our mobile app and disclosure to third parties for advertising purposes

(1) When downloading and installing the mobile app, personal data is processed by the app store. We are not aware of what data is processed. We have no influence on this data processing and are not responsible for it.

(2) When using the mobile app, we process the personal data described below to enable convenient use of the functions. If you wish to use our mobile app, we process the following data, which are technically necessary for us to offer you the functions of our mobile app and to ensure stability and security, so that they must be processed by us. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR:

The legal basis for the processing is your consent, Art. 6 (1) 1 lit a GDPR.

Section 4: External hosting

The data transmitted by our app and all profile entries are hosted by an external service provider. This means that the personal data that our app transmits to us and your profile entries, is stored on the servers of this so-called hoster. This is mainly the following personal data: Email address, username, password (so-called hash), all data made in your AddMee profile and other data collected when using the app (see above).

The external hosting is done for us by the Contabo GmbH, Aschauer Straße 32a, 81549 Munich, Germany. They processes the personal data on our behalf and under our instruction. We have concluded a corresponding contract data processing agreement with the Contabo GmbH.

Your personal data will be forwarded according to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with potential and existing customers. In addition, we have a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f GDPR in the fast, efficient and secure provision of our app by a provider of hosting services.

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. e) or f) GDPR. We will then no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If the objection is directed against direct marketing, you have an unrestricted right to object, even without specifying a particular situation.

You can assert your right to object and also your other rights by, for example, sending an e-mail to info@addmee.de.
