1.2 Scope of the collection, processing and storage of personal data
Personal data about you will only be collected, processed and stored by us, if this is permitted or required by law or if
you have expressly consented to the data collection.
2. What information is collected and how is it used?
2.1 Data collected when using our websites
Each time you access our web pages, our system automatically collects various data from the calling computer. These data
include, but are not limited to, the name of the retrieved web page, which file was retrieved, the date and time of the retrieval,
the amount of data transmitted, a message that the retrieval was successful, the type and version of the browser you are
using, your operating system, possibly the referrer URL (the previously visited page), your IP address, as well as your Internet
service provider and other similar information that serves to guard against dangers in the event of an attack on our systems.
This data is stored in the log data of our system. We use this log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose
of operation, safety and optimization of our offer. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place
in this context. A storage of this data together with other personal data of you also does not take place. The data will
be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. This is the case after seven days at the
latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment
of the calling client is no longer possible.
Our websites currently do not use analytics tools such as Google Analytics. If we use analytics tools in the future, we will,
2.2 Data collected when contacting us
When contacting us (for example via contact form or e-mail), your data transmitted to us will be stored for the purpose of
processing your request as well as in case of follow-up questions. There is no disclosure of this data to third parties.
Please note that e-mails sent unencrypted to us may possibly be read by third parties during transmission. We usually can
not verify your identity and we do not know who is behind an email address. A legally secure communication by simple
e-mail is therefore not guaranteed. We also use filters against unwanted advertising (so-called "SPAM filters"), which
in rare cases also automatically classify and delete normal e-mails as unwanted advertising. E-mails containing harmful
programs ("viruses") will be automatically deleted by us in any case.
If you would like to send us messages that you would like to protect, we recommend encrypting and signing them to prevent
unauthorized access or falsification in the transmission path or to send the message to us by conventional mail. The
PGP key identifier of our contact address email@example.com is 3A975A479A8D04AA.
2.3 Data collected when using our apps
All data collected, processed and stored using our apps always has the clear purpose of providing a specific feature within
our apps. During installation, our apps may request specific access permissions. Our apps never claim more privileges than
is strictly necessary to properly deliver their functionality. Here are some of the permissions our apps require and what
they are necessary for.
Some of our applications detect and use the exact location of the user, e.g. via GPS or similar technologies. This information
is necessary for the correct operation of the application, e.g. to show you your current position on a map. In some cases,
we also use this information to provide you with more relevant advertising. For this, your current location will be forwarded
to our advertising partners. If you do not want that, you can turn off location tracking in your device.
Some of our applications use the camera (s) in your mobile device (smartphone or tablet PC). This is necessary for the correct
functioning of the application, for example, to display a camera image of your environment in which an object is displayed
(so-called Augmented Reality). The images recorded by the camera are processed exclusively locally on your device and (if
at all) stored only locally on your device. Further use of the pictures taken by the camera does not take place.
Some of our applications can access the storage of your mobile device. This permission is necessary and will be used exclusively
to allow you to set your own picture as wallpaper in some of our "live wallpaper" apps. An additional use of the authorization
does not take place.
3. Transfer of data to third parties
To give you the best possible app experience, we use third-party services, such as Google, in some of our apps. Third-party
providers must agree to the restrictions on the access, storage and use of personal data. Where necessary, we will enter
into contractual agreements (for example through a data-processing agreement) and take appropriate technical measures
to prevent possible misuse of such data by third-party providers. However, we can not guarantee that all third party
providers comply with these restrictions and agreements. A transfer to third party providers takes place exclusively
via a TLS / SSL encrypted connection. The only third party is currently Google. Here you can find more information about
the privacy policies of Google:
4. Data erasure and storage duration
Personal data of users will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer existent. It may also
be stored if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which we
are subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned
expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.
5. Security of data
CodeKonditor uses appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect users' personal data stored on its
products against manipulation, loss and unauthorized access by third parties. In addition, we are constantly improving our
security measures in line with technical developments. Although we make every effort to protect our systems, there can be
no assurance that our systems will be 100% immune from misconduct, malfunction, improper interception or access, or other
types of misuse.

basis of Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual

Article 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Article 6 (1) (d) of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental
rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, then Article 6 (1) (f) of
the GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
