Your data is not processed nor shared to third party companies and it has the unique purpose of understanding the behaviour of the user within the application. In the event of a usability or other technical error of the app, data on this specific event (e.g., which function of the app, which operating system, which type of device you were using, which type of error occurred and when it occurred) is processed using Metrics service anonymously. We receive an anonymized request report about the event. The legal basis for using Metrics is in accordance with § 25(1) TTDSG your consent (Article 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR). At any time, you have the option to withdraw your consent with effect for the future by deactivating the corresponding setting within the app. You can find the option to deactivate consent given within the application settings of the app. The collected data will be deleted automatically within a period of one year.

4. Support requests

If you contact our support, we will collect and store the personal data transmitted by you for the purpose of processing your request. You are not obligated to provide personal data in your request, and you may contact us with a pseudonym at any time.
We will store your support requests for a period of 120 days from completion of your request, in order to ensure that your request has been successfully processed, and to enable us to understand which problems may have occurred in the past in the event of subsequent requests to help us with solving your request.
If you email us with a support request from our app, your email will contain some technical information concerning your device and your Transcriber app that will assist us in helping you with technical issues. You may delete this information from your email if you do not want it to be transmitted to us. However, please note that we may then be unable to help you with technical issues.
We collect and process your data in order to answer your support request and in order to ensure defect-free operation of our product for you, Article 6(1) point (b) GDPR. If you contact us independently of a specific support request or a technical issue, we will collect and process your personal data based on our legitimate interest in being able to answer email queries and due to the fact that your interests are not overriding, point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR.

5. Newsletter

6. Transfer of data

In principle, your personal data will only be passed on without your explicit prior consent in the following cases:
6.1. If necessary, to investigate illegal use of our services, or for prosecution, personal data will be passed on to the law-enforcement authorities and potentially to harmed third parties. However, this will only be the case if there are any specific indications of illegal or abusive behavior. Data may also be passed on if this serves to enforce terms and conditions of use or other agreements. We are also legally required to provide information to certain public bodies on request. These are law-enforcement authorities, public authorities that pursue administrative offences subject to fines and the tax authorities.
These data are passed on based on our legitimate interest in fighting abuse, prosecuting criminal offences and the securing, assertion and enforcement of claims and that your rights and interests in protection of your personal data are not overriding, Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR or based on a legal obligation in accordance with Article 6(1) point (c) GDPR.
6.2. We depend on contractually bound third-party companies and external service providers for rendering our services (“Data Processors”). In such cases, personal data will be passed on to such Data Processors in order to permit further processing by them. We select our Data Processors with care and review them at regular intervals to ensure that your rights and freedoms are respected. The Data Processors must only use the data for the purposes specified by us, and are furthermore contractually obligated by us to treat your data only in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and the applicable data protection laws.
In detail, we use the following Data Processors:
– The Rocket Science Group (Mailchimp, email dispatch)
Data is passed on to Processors based on Article 28(1) GDPR, alternatively based on our legitimate interest in economic and technical advantages connected to the use of specialized processors, and the fact that your rights and interests in protection of your personal data are not overriding, Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR.
For the USA, the European Commission resolved by its decision dated 12 July 2016 that there is an adequate level of data protection under the provisions of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield (adequacy decision, Article 45 GDPR). We use the following service providers that are certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield:
– The Rocket Science Group
6.4. Within the scope of further development of our business, the structure of Binaries Lab UG (haftungsbeschränkt) may be changed by amending the legal form or by founding, purchasing, or selling subsidiaries, company parts or components. In such transactions, the customer information will be passed on together with the part of the company to be transferred. Every time personal data are transferred to third parties in the scope described above, we will ensure that this is effected in compliance with this Privacy Policy and the relevant data protection laws.
Any passing on of the personal data is justified by our legitimate interest in adjusting our corporate form to the economic and legal conditions if required and by the fact that your rights and interests in protection of your personal data are not overriding, Article 6(1) point (f) GDPR.

7. Change of purposes

Processing of your personal data for any other purposes than those described shall only take place to the extent that this is permitted by law, or if you have consented to the changed purpose of the processing activities. In case of further processing for other purposes than those for which the data was initially collected, we will inform you about such other purposes before further processing, and provide you with all other information relevant for such.

8. Erasure of your data

We erase or anonymize your personal data as soon as we no longer need them for the purposes for which we have collected or used them according to the above items.
After the end of these periods, the data will be deleted, except if the data is needed for a longer period due to statutory archiving periods, for criminal prosecution or to secure, assert or enforce legal claims. In such a case, the data will be blocked and is no longer available for further use.

9. Automated individual decision making or measures for profiling

We do not use any automated processing processes to procure a decision, including profiling.
