1.2 Legal basis
The term “personal data” under data protection law refers to all information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. We process personal data in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations, in particular, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Data processing by us only takes place on the basis of legal permission. We process personal data only with your consent (Section 25  TTDSG or Art. 6  lit. a GDPR), for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or, at your request, for the performance of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6  lit. b GDPR), for the performance of a legal obligation (Art. 6  lit. c GDPR) or if the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms require otherwise (Art. 6  lit. f GDPR).
1.3 Duration of storage
Unless otherwise stated in the following notes, we only store the data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purpose of the processing or to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations. Such statutory retention obligations may arise in particular from commercial or tax law provisions. From the end of the calendar year in which the data was collected, we will retain such personal data contained in our accounting records for ten years and retain personal data contained in commercial letters and contracts for six years. In addition, we will retain data in connection with consents requiring proof, as well as with complaints and the assertion of claims, for the duration of the statutory limitation periods. We will delete data that we process on the basis of your consent if you object to the processing for this purpose.
1.4 Categories of recipients of the data
We use processors as part of the processing of your data. Processing operations carried out by such processors include, for example, hosting, sending e-mails, maintenance and support of IT systems, customer and order management, order processing, accounting and billing, marketing measures or file and data carrier destruction. A processor is a natural person or legal entity, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller. Processors do not use the data for their own purposes, but carry out the data processing exclusively for us as the data controller and are contractually obliged to ensure appropriate technical and organisational measures for data protection. In addition, we may transfer your personal data to bodies such as postal and delivery services, house bank,
tax consultancy/auditing firm or the tax authorities. Further recipients may result from the following notes.
1.5 Data transfer to third countries
Our data processing may involve the transfer of certain personal data to third countries, i.e., countries where the GDPR is not applicable law. Such transfer is permissible if the European Commission has determined that an adequate level of data protection is provided in such a third country. If such an adequacy decision by the European Commission is not available, transfer of personal data to a third country will only take place if appropriate safeguards are provided in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR or if one of the conditions of Art. 49 GDPR is met. An adequacy decision applies to the following countries: https://commission.europa.eu/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en. For data transfers to the U.S., the adequacy decision applies to companies certified under the Privacy Framework and listed on this list (https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/s/participant-search). Unless otherwise indicated below, we use the EU Standard Contractual Clauses as appropriate guarantees for the transfer of personal data to third countries. You have the option of obtaining or viewing copies of these EU Standard Contractual Clauses. Please contact the address provided under Contact.
If you consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, the transfer will be based on the legal basis of Art. 49 para. 1 letter a GDPR.

The data is transmitted to Google Ireland and processed on our behalf.
Some of this data is information that is stored in the terminal device you are using. In addition, Google Analytics may also store further information on the terminal device you are using. Such a storage of information by Google Analytics or access to information already stored in your terminal device will only take place with your consent.

Personal data is not passed on to companies, insurers and health insurance companies. The data will only be evaluated anonymously and, if necessary, used to create a completely anonymous health report for your provider, insofar as this enables you to use our service and you make use of this option. Anonymisation in this case is secured by the fact that we only generate reports if more than 15 people within a company or department use our App. Conclusions about your personal state of health are not possible based on the use of our App and our services.
