For what purpose we use the information and on what basis do we handle them?
gApp handles personal information to meet statutory and contractual obligations. The legal bases of our processing are:
Implementing the contract: Fulfilling contractual obligations, i.e. providing our service, is the main legal basis for our processing of personal data. The contract is formed between gApp and you (Data Subject) when you register to the service. You will accept the processing of data according to this Privacy Statement by using the service. gApp will process personal information to the extent necessary for providing or developing the service.
Statutory Obligation: In addition to our contracts, we have statutory obligations to deal with personal information. Examples of these include Accounting Act and public event and restaurant legislation.
Consent: To develop our website we collect analytical information on the use of the pages based on your consent. Acceptance of data collection is given at the site upon arrival.
How long will we keep the data?
Personal data is kept only for a contractual period unless otherwise required by law, such as the Accounting Act. For example, purchase transactions are maintained for the period required by the Accounting Act, but the information is anonymized at the end of the contractual relationship.
Website anonymous visitor analytics information will only be retained as long as it is necessary to track and develop marketing and customer service, a maximum of 26 months.
Customer support data is kept for the maximum of 24 months.
Data Processors and Cross-Border Processing
Data processing is being done by employees of gApp, in accordance with the current Personal Data Act. gApp reserves the right to outsource the processing of personal data to a third party, thereby guaranteeing contractual arrangements that personal data will be processed in accordance with the Personal Data Act and otherwise appropriately.
Otherwise, data will not be combined with other registers and will not be disclosed to third parties, unless required by law (e.g. the Accounting Act).
What are the risks involved in personal data processing and how do we protect the data?
The largest (still minor) risk is the personal data ending in the wrong hands, for example in connection with data theft or leakage. If this unlikely event occurs, the information can be used to find out the behavior of the Data Subjects, determine Data Subjects’ locations on event days, and send junk mail. Announcements of the large-scale data leaks are always provided to each party of the contract, regardless of whether or not the party is subject to the notification obligation.
The purpose of the gApp security operations are to secure the availability of information and information systems, to ensure their confidentiality, to ensure data integrity, and to minimize any possible damage caused by deviations. The hedging activities are based on an activity risk assessment and are proportioned to managing the hedged item and the risks it poses.
Your personal data is always processed in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act.
