Data protection

What is the “DSGVO”?

DSGVO is the GDPR in German. GDPR is the abbreviation for "General Data Protection Regulation". The GDPR is an EU law that regulates the protection of all individuals whose personal data is processed by other entities. In particular, the GDPR regulates the extent to which personal data may be processed. In addition, the GDPR regulates the rights of data subjects whose data is processed.

What is personal data?

"Personal data" is any information relating to a natural person who can theoretically be identified. In other words, personal data exists if conclusions can be drawn about an individual person based on the information. In addition to names, addresses or telephone numbers, personal data may also include device information (e.g. IP addresses). By contrast, information that relates solely to companies or things, for example, so that there is no reference to natural persons, is not personal data.

My personal data in the app is incorrect. Can I have the personal data corrected?

App users can correct or supplement the data they have entered themselves in the app (e.g., in the user account). When the data is mandatory, it cannot be deleted. In principle, app users can require their personal data to be corrected or completed by the respective app provider if the latter is incorrect or incomplete. The app provider must then follow suit if the legal requirements are met. The user can contact the relevant app provider and their contact details can be found in the app’s current data protection information.

Can I use the app without sharing my location?

Yes, you can use the app without sharing your location. You then enter the starting point and the arrival destination via the input fields. Without sharing the location, your current position cannot be determined and you cannot be located on the map.

Where can I find the data protection information?

You can find the privacy notice in the app under the following: "Account → Legal → Privacy Policy".

Does the app work according to the guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)?

Yes, the app is compliant with the guidelines of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).

I have not registered in the app. Will my personal data still be processed?

In principle, the app can also be used without registration/user account. In this case, under certain circumstances, the user’s personal data may nevertheless be processed, for example in the context of timetable information (e.g. location data). Detailed information on the scope of data processing can be found in the app's current data privacy statements.

Which access rights and personal data does the app require and why?

The app stores location data as well as personal data (including IP address, email address) for sending error analyses and crash reports to ensure the functionality of the app as well as for logging app usage to enable the improvement of app functionalities. Detailed information on the scope of data processing can be found in the respective current privacy information of the app.

How can I find out which of my personal data will be processed through the app?

How can I limit how much data is processed within the app?

Under certain circumstances, app users can object to the processing of their personal data in the app. On one hand, users generally have the right to object to data processing for advertising purposes (see Article 21 (2) of the GDPR). If the respective app provider should (also) process the personal data for advertising purposes, the app provider may no longer process the data for advertising purposes after an objection. In addition, users also have the right to object to data processing under certain conditions (see Article 21 (1) of the GDPR). The prerequisite for this is that the user can demonstrate reasons that arise from their particular situation and speak against the data processing. In this case, the app provider may no longer process the data after an objection, unless the app provider, for its part, can prove legitimate compelling reasons for the data processing. Users can assert their right to object to the respective app provider. The contact details can be found in the respective current privacy information of the app.
