Privacy policy of the app

We attach great importance to protecting your personal information and would like to inform you here about the form and scope of the collection, processing and use of personal data in connection with the use of our app.

Responsible body

Responsible for the following data collection and processing is:

  • Studio GAUS GmbH, Erich-Steinfurth-Str. 6, 10243 Berlin
  • Tel.: +49 30 / 55 475 977
  • E-Mail: info@studiogaus.com

The contact details that are published as part of the Impressum may not be used by third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited information materials and advertising. In the case of unsolicited promotional information (such as spam e-mails), we reserve the right to take legal action.

According to the Art. 37 GDPR we are not obliged to appoint a company data protection officer. We also do not have a specific person for data protection, whose contact data could be published here. Nevertheless, we fulfill all obligations in connection with the processing of data with the highest professional care.

Collection and storage of personal data

Personal data

Personal data is any type of data that can be used to directly or indirectly identify an individual. Some examples of personal data are name, address, email etc.

In this sense, a use of our offer is basically possible without providing personal data. This means that we can neither identify nor contact our users due to the typically stored data.

When you contact us via email, through a contact form or through social media, we will collect the information you provide (your email address, your name and phone number if applicable) in order to be able to answer your questions. Legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO. We delete the data arising in this connection after the storage is no longer necessary, in particular after completion of the processing of the request, or limit the processing if there are statutory storage requirements.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website/app, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

You can download our app in the respective App Store for your operating system. Your download may require prior registration to the applicable app store and installation of the app store software. The data collection is carried out by the provider of the App Store as responsible.

Purpose of data processing

The storage and processing of this data is necessary to ensure the functionality of the offer and the possibility of contacting. They serve to optimize the offer and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

Access permissions

In order for the app to work properly, you need to grant access to certain smartphone features that are stored on the device. So once at the beginning or even when using the respective function you will be prompted to grant the appropriate access. Legal basis for the use of push notifications is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR.

Push notifications

We are interested in informing you about significant events within our app, even if you have not opened our app. We use so-called push notifications for this.

The app sends out allerts only if you have expressly consented to it. When you first start the app, we ask you if you want to see the allerts on your mobile device. You can disable the delivery of push notifications in app settings or device settings, and revoke your consent at any time.

Data storage duration

We adhere to the principles of data economy and data avoidance. We only store personal data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed or if your consent has been revoked. With the discontinuation of the respective purpose and / or the exercise of the relevant data subject law, the corresponding data are regularly blocked and in accordance with the legal provisions, anonymized and / or deleted.

Affected rights

General information about the affected rights

You have the following rights in relation to us with regard to any personal data concerning you:

  • Right of access by the data subject (Art. 15 GDPR)
