Data protection officer: Dr. Nils Haag, intersoft consulting services AG

Types of data collected

Personal data that AppYourself processes independently or through third parties include: Cookie, Usage Data, Various Types of Data, Email, First Name, Last Name and Company Name.

Full details of each type of personal data processed are provided in the designated sections of this Privacy Policy or selectively through explanatory text displayed prior to data collection. Personal data may be provided voluntarily by the user or, in the case of usage data, may be collected automatically when AppYourself is used.
Unless otherwise stated, the provision of all data requested by AppYourself is mandatory. If the user refuses to provide the data, this may result in AppYourself being unable to provide its services to the user.

In cases where AppYourself expressly states that the provision of personal data is voluntary, users may choose not to provide such data without any consequences for the availability or functioning of the service.
Users who are unclear about which personal data is mandatory may contact the provider.
Any use of cookies – or other tracking tools – by AppYourself or third party service providers used by AppYourself is for the purpose of providing the service requested by the user and any other purposes described in this document and, if any, in the Cookie Policy.

Users are responsible for all third party personal data obtained, published or disclosed by AppYourself and confirm that they have obtained consent to the transfer of any third party personal data to AppYourself.

Type and place of data processing

Methods of processing

The Provider processes User Data in a proper manner and takes appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorised access and unauthorised transmission, modification or destruction of data.
Data processing is carried out by means of computers or IT-based systems in accordance with organisational procedures and practices that are specific to the stated purposes. In addition to the data controller, other parties may operate AppYourself internally (human resources, sales, marketing, legal, system administrators) or externally – and in that case, where necessary, designated by the data controller as processors (such as technical service providers, delivery companies, hosting providers, IT companies or communications agencies) – and may therefore have access to the data. An up-to-date list of these parties can be requested from the provider at any time.

Legal basis of processing

The provider may only process users’ personal data if one of the following applies:

    • The users have given their consent for one or more specified purposes. Note: In some jurisdictions, the provider may be allowed to process personal data until the user objects to such processing (“opt-out”) without relying on consent or any other of the following legal bases. However, this does not apply if the processing of personal data is subject to European data protection law;
    • the collection of data is necessary for the performance of a contract with the user and/or for pre-contractual measures arising therefrom;
    • the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the provider is subject;
    • the processing is related to a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the provider;
    • the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the provider or a third party;

In any case, the provider will be happy to provide information on the specific legal basis on which the processing is based, in particular whether the provision of personal data is a legal or contractual obligation or a prerequisite for the conclusion of a contract.

Place

Data will be processed at the Provider’s office and at any other location where the entities involved in data processing are located.

Depending on the location of the users, data transfers may involve the transfer of the user’s data to a country other than their own. To find out more about where the transferred data is processed, users can consult the section detailing the processing of personal data.

Users also have the right to be informed about the legal basis of the transfer of data to a country outside the European Union or to an international organisation governed by international law or established by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by the provider to protect their data.

If such a transfer takes place, the User can find out more by reviewing the relevant sections of this document or by contacting the Provider using the information provided in the contact section.

Storage period

Personal data will be processed and stored for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

Therefore:

    • Personal data collected for the purpose of fulfilling a contract concluded between the provider and the user will be stored until the complete fulfilment of this contract.
  • Personal data collected for the purpose of safeguarding the provider’s legitimate interests will be retained for as long as necessary to fulfil those purposes. Users can obtain more detailed information about the provider’s legitimate interests in the relevant sections of this document or by contacting the provider.

In addition, the provider is permitted to store personal data for a longer period of time if the user has consented to such processing, as long as the consent is not revoked. Furthermore, the provider may be obliged to retain personal data for a longer period of time if this is necessary to comply with a legal obligation or by order of an authority.

After the retention period has expired, personal data will be deleted. Therefore, the right of access, the right of deletion, the right of rectification and the right of data portability cannot be exercised after the retention period has expired.

Purposes of processing

Personal data about the user is collected to enable the provider to deliver the services. In addition, data is collected for the following purposes: Heat mapping and session recording, interacting with online survey platforms, managing user databases, handling payments, analytics, tag management, interacting with external social networks and platforms, remarketing and behavioural targeting, interacting with data collection platforms and other third parties, contacting the user, interacting with live chat platforms, managing contacts and sending messages, testing the performance of content and features (A/B testing) and monitoring infrastructure.
