  1. Who is responsible for data processing and who can I contact?

You can reach our company data protection officer under: Data Protection Officer

Uniwhere UG (limited liability) Brunnenstr 64, 13355 Berlin District Court Charlottenburg (Berlin) HRB182022B privacy@uniwhere.com

  1. What personal data do we process and where do they come from?

When we make the service available for you to use, we process personal information from various sources. On the one hand, these are data that we automatically collect when you open the app. But this can also be data that you have volunteered to us.

● Data that we collect automatically

As soon as you open the app, you submit technical information to our web server. This happens regardless of whether you then register with us to use the service or not. In any case, every time the app is opened, it will be recorded:

• Firebase and Google Analytics

So we process the above data about how you access the service and how you use it. If the app does not work anymore because of a system error or needs to be restarted, we also record this. So we process information about the people, functions, content and links that you deal with when you use the app.

To process this data, we use Google Analytics in conjunction with Firebase. Firebase is a real-time database that lets you embed real-time information into your app. In this case, the above-mentioned user data will be sent anonymously to Firebase. Firebase is a Google subsidiary based in San Francisco, CA. The Firebase privacy policy can be found at https://www.firebase.com/terms/privacy-policy.html.

,

The data collected by Google Analytics on the use of the app are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation has been activated in the App website so that the IP address of Google users within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area is shortened beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. In our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate users’ use of the app, compile reports on app activity, and provide us with other services related to the use of the app and the internet to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics from your device will not be merged with other data provided by Google. You can prevent the storage by a corresponding setting in the operating system of your terminal. If so, you may not be able to use all the features of the app in full. In addition, you may prevent the collection of data related to the use of the app (including the IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the plug-in available under the following link. The current link is: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

You can also find more information about Google Analytics at: http://google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

● Note on using Facebook Custom Audiences

It is a service of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook EU”), which also provides data to Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Facebook USA”, together with Facebook EU’s total “Facebook”). Like Google, Facebook USA is also certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, providing an appropriate level of privacy outside the EU (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

In this case, so-called Facebook pixels are integrated in our app, which identify you as the user of our app in anonymous form, ie without identifying you as a person. If you later sign up for Facebook, a non-personal checksum (profile) from your usage data will be sent to Facebook for analysis and marketing purposes. For more information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your options to protect your privacy, see the Facebook Privacy Policy, which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms / customaudience and https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation. If you wish to opt-out of using Facebook Custom Audiences, you can do so at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen/.

However, even if you are not a member of Facebook, Facebook will still receive and store your IP address according to our privacy policy (https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies/) and will receive information when you use our app, including device information (Operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength), device identifiers, device locations, including specific geographic locations, such GPS, Bluetooth or WiFi signals, connection information such as the name of your mobile operator or ISP, browser type, language and time zone, mobile phone number) and information about your activity. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is processed.

● Data that you submit to us

In addition to the data we receive from all visitors, we also process other data. The exact scope of this information depends on how you use the service. These include:

Account and profile data:

In order to use the service, you do not have to create a user account (a “profile”) and you do not need to provide us with any data. However, We will ask you for your login information, which you received from your university to log in to the online services of your university (your “university data”). With this data, you can then use the app directly to access your university’s data, such as syllabi, timetables, or meal plans.

If you create a profile, we will however assign you a so-called Unique User ID. In addition to your profile name, this Unique User ID allows us to uniquely assign your profile.

Contact and location data:

You can grant us for the use of the service via a button access to all contact data imported by you on your device (such as an address book in a device) or access to transmitted from your device location data (eg via GPS). However, we will never process this information without your prior explicit consent. This consent can then be given to us separately via the user interface.

Other data we process when you have a profile:

Once you have logged in with your university data via our app process

The data from the network of your university. These are:

If you use the functions of the app and eg. Lectures and exams review or

comment or use the chat feature, we will also process this data.

  1. For what purposes do we process your data and on what legal basis do we do this?

We only process your data for the following defined purposes:

We base ourselves on various legal bases according to the so-called General Data Protection Regulation, an EU-wide legal framework for standardization

of data protection law (abbreviated to “DSGVO”). Here we refer in detail to the following legal bases:

Consent (Article 6 (1) a GDPR)

Insofar as you have given us consent to the processing of personal data for specific purposes, this consent ensures the lawfulness of the processing. When registering with your university data, you expressly agree by posting a check mark before sending the registration form of use for the purposes described in detail in this privacy statement. So if we process your data, then because you have explicitly allowed us that when you log in or your visit to the site. Thus, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR is the most important legal basis for the processing by us of your personal data.

For the fulfillment of contractual obligations (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR)

At the same time, the processing of personal data also takes place for the provision of the service in the context of the execution of our contract with you. In many cases, the processing is justified not only because of your consent, but also because it is necessary to fulfill our contract with you ,

In the context of the balance of interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR)

When you register for the use of the service, you consent to the processing of your data in accordance with this privacy policy. That’s why we only process your data because you have allowed us this processing. Nevertheless, there are some cases in which we would be entitled to processing without your consent, because it is necessary for the protection of Our legitimate interests (or the interests of third parties). In this respect, the purposes for which we process your data also constitute legitimate interests.

Due to legal requirements (Article 6 paragraph 1 c DSGVO) or in the public interest (Article 6 paragraph 1 e DSGVO)

In addition, we are legally obliged to provide certain information to law enforcement or fiscal authorities in individual cases.

  1. To whom do we transfer your data?

We will treat your personal data with care and confidentiality and will only disclose it to third parties as described below and not beyond.

Other users:

Since our services are social networks, it is in the nature of ours that we share your profile data and other data (eg news that you write or reviews you give) at your request and in your order to the appropriate users forward the service.

Third :

In addition, we transmit data to external service providers that enable us to provide the service. These include our hosting provider Amazon Web Services and Google Inc. as the operator of the analytics platform Google Firebase. Each of these Service Providers requires us to comply with strict rules to ensure the security of your information when processing personal information on Our behalf.

We only provide data to authorities in the case of a legal obligation based on a request for information from the respective authority.

  1. Do we submit your data to countries outside the EU or the EEA?

We do not transfer your data to countries outside the EEA. We do not host your data in third countries and all our servers are in the EEA. Of course, we take the protection of your personal information very seriously and have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your data from unauthorized or unlawful processing and from their accidental loss, destruction or damage. We encrypt all data exclusively via SSL with a verified 256-bit certificate.

Due to the use of Google Firebase, the data collected will also be transmitted to the United States. The Google Analytics uses of the app are usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. However, Google’s IP address will be truncated before it is sent to the US within member states of the European Union or other EEA contracting states. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The USA is a so-called third country, ie a state outside the EEA, where in principle no adequate level of data protection is guaranteed. However, Google is under the so-called Privacy Shield certified, so that despite the transfer to the US, there is a reasonable guarantee for an adequate level of data protection.

  1. How long will my data be stored?

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual or legal obligations. Thus, we store the data in principle, as long as Our contractual relationship with you and after termination only, as far as required by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. All other data will be deleted immediately when you log out of the app. If the remaining data are no longer required to perform such duties, they will be regularly deleted unless their further processing is necessary for the preservation of evidence under statute of limitations.

  1. Do you create a user profile with my personal data?

We use your data for so-called “profiling”. By this we mean that we use your data in order to provide you with a personalized service based on your personal preferences, interests and to make tailor-made offers based on your previous behavior. For example, we will show you job and housing offers as well as teaching materials that fit your profile and your interests. However, we will never process and analyze your personal information as part of a profiling process, resulting in an automated decision that will have a legal effect on you or significantly affect you in a similar manner.

  1. Is there a duty for me to provide data? What happens if I do not or no longer provide my data?

You are not required by law to provide us with the above information. In principle, the contractual relationship that you have entered into with us by agreeing to our Terms and Conditions does not create any obligation to provide such personal data. However, the transmission of mandatory information is a prerequisite for a contract with us. In addition, you can use the service not or only to a limited extent, if you do not provide us with certain data or contradict your use. Because our service represents a social media offer, which is essentially “alive” only by the content posted by the users.

  1. What rights do I have with respect to the data processing by you?

You can assert the following rights against us according to the GDPR:

Your right to information under Article 15 of the GDPR, Your right to a correction under Article 16 of the GDPR, Your right to cancellation under Article 17 GDPR, Your right to restriction of processing under Article 18 GDPR and your right to data portability under Article 20 GDPR.

In addition, you have a right of appeal to the data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 DSGVO in conjunction with § 19 BDSG).

competent

You can revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were granted to us before the validity of the GDPR, ie before May 25, 2018. This revocation works only for the future. Processing that occurred before the revocation is not affected.

Information about your right of objection under Article 21 GDPR

  1. Case-specific right of objection

In addition to the rights already mentioned, you have the right at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to prevent the processing of personal data relating to you pursuant to Article 6 (1) of the GDPR (Data Processing in the Public Interest) and Article 6 Paragraph 1 f DSGVO (data processing based on a balance of interests) is made to file an objection; this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Article 4 (4) GDPR. If you file an objection, We will cease to process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. Please also note the information in Section 8 of this Privacy Policy: If we stop the processing because of your opposition, it may be that the service can no longer or only partially be made available.

  1. Right to object to the processing of data for advertising purposes

You also have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing purposes; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail. If you object, we will no longer process your personal information.
