In this document we, Daily Text App, inform you as controller according to art. 4 para 7 GDPR about the collection and use of personal data when using our mobile “Daily Text” app available in the App Store for iOS
Collection of Personal Data When Using the Mobile App
We can save some “Personal Data” like your e-mail address. We don´t save sensible data like your name or mobile phone because we don´t ask you never.
When you contact us via e-mail or through a contact form, we save the data provided by you (e-mail address) to answer your questions. The data incurring in this is stored to handle recurring support inquiries quicker, and to implement future features based on wishes in support inquiries into our services.
When using the Mobile App we collect the following types of personal data technically necessary to provide the Mobile App’s functions and ensure their stability and security (legal basis is our legitimate interest in providing a stabile app according to art. 6 para 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR):
- IP address;
- Date and time of the request;
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT);
- Access status/HTTP status code;
- Respectively transmitted data volume;
- Type designation of the used device;
- Language and regional settings of the device.
In addition to the previously mentioned data we store cookies on your device when you use our Mobile App that relate to the Mobile App. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit virus onto your mobile device. They are used to make mobile apps in general more user-friendly and more efficient. This app uses the following types of cookies whose extent and functionality are explained in the following
- Transient cookies: These cookies are automatically deleted when you close the Mobile App. This applies i.e. to session cookies that store a so-called Session ID with which several requests from your browser can be assigned to the same session. In doing so, your computer can be recognized when you return to the Website. Session cookies are deleted when you close the browser.
- Persistent cookies: These cookies are automatically deleted after a predefined time that can vary from cookie to cookie. You can delete cookies in your browser’s settings at any time.
You can configure your mobile OS and the Mobile App according to your liking, e.g. deny the acceptance of third-party cookies or of cookies altogether. In such a case you might not be able to use all functions of the Website though.
For advertising purposes we use the so-called “Advertising Identifier” on iOS devices (commonly referred to as “Identifier”). This Identifier is a unique but not personal and not permanent identifier for a specific device provided by iOS. The data collected through the Identifier is not connected to any other device-based information. We use the Identifier to provide personalized ads to you and analyze your use. If you activate the option [FS7] “no ad tracking” under iOS under “Data Protection” – “Ads”, we can only perform the following measures:
- Measure your interaction with banners ads by counting the number of displays of a banner without a click on it (“frequency capping”),
- Click rate, and
- Unique users; and
- Perform security measures, fraud protection and error correction.
In your device settings, you can at any time delete the Identifier (“Remove Ad ID“ under [FS8] iOS. In this case a new Identifier is created that is not merged with previously collected data.
In the Mobile App we use Firebase (https://www.firebase.com/), a framework maintained by the Google subsidiary Firebase residing in San Francisco, CA, USA, through which we track and administer the following real-time functions––
- Tracking of user behavior through Google Analytics (cp. para 2) for Firebase;
- Tracking of app crashes and their reasons through Firebase Crashlytics (cp. para 3);
- Push notifications through Firebase Cloud Messaging (cp. in para 4);
- Data base of app through Firebase Firestore (cp. para 5); and
The Mobile App uses the web analysis service Google Analytics that tracks your use of the Mobile App through cookies or a comparable technology. The information generated through your cookie or the comparable technology is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As we anonymize IP addresses in the Mobile App, your IP address is shortened by Google within the European Union or in a member state of the Treaty on the European Economic Area, by way of exception (e.g. in case of technical failure of servers within the EU) is in full transmitted to Google servers in the USA and shortened there. We use the information prepared by Google to interpret your use of the Mobile App for its optimization and further development.
We use Firebase Crashlytics to track app crashes as they occur, and to prevent future ones. In case of an app crash, a report is created that contains the type and OS of the device, your last activities in the app, and your geolocation in pseudonymous form, and that is sent to Google. Information on the functionality of Crashlytics is available under https://firebase.google.com/products/crashlytics/
The Mobile App uses Firebase Cloud Messaging to send messages to its users. To do so, it sends a previously generated anonymous device ID (token) to Google so that we can identify app users and send messages to them. Information on the functionality of Cloud Messaging is available under https://firebase.google.com/products/cloud-messaging/
The legal basis for the use of Firebase is our legitimate interest in maintaining the Mobile App stable and evaluate its performance according to art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR.
If you do not want the data categories mentioned in this section, you may not use the Mobile App.
Ad Network Admob
In the Mobile App we display ads from several advertizing networks that are selected and provided by Admob(https://www.admob.com). To do so, we collect the following data categories processes by Admob––
- Mobile identifiers such as the ID for Advertising for iOS (IDFA) or the Google Advertising ID;
- IP address;
The mentioned data is in principle, notwithstanding your request for deletion, stored indefinitely.
The data mentioned in para 1 is pseudonymized and transmitted to one or several ad network providers in order to display ads that are relevant to you. The mentioned data is, depending on the display network, either only processed within the EU or, if and insofar as networks are used that store and process data outside of the EU, protected by the respective network provider’s commitment to the EU-US Privacy Shield or to an equivalent treaty, e.g. EU Standard Contractual Clauses, that ensure a GDPR-equivalent data protection level.
The legal basis for the use of said service is to maintain and providing the Mobile App to you for free.
If you do not want the data mentioned in para 1 to be tracked, you may not use the Mobile App.
