This Privacy Notice applies to the processing of personal data in the context of
The Website, the App and the Community are collectively referred to as the “Services”.
When using the Website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server. If you view our Website, we collect the following data:
This data will be processed by us for the following purposes:
This data may only be personally identifiable via the IP address. Depending on your way of access to the Internet, the IP address may be completely anonymous, or your access provider stores the assignment of a dynamic IP address to you. In the latter case, combining the above-mentioned data with that of your access provider can eventually make a connection between you personally and the above-mentioned data. However, we will only initiate this if this is appropriate in individual cases for the purposes of legal prosecution, and we will otherwise only cooperate in this if this is ordered by competent authorities or courts in individual cases.
The legal basis for the provision of the Website is Performance of Contract. For the other purposes, the legal basis is the Legitimate Interest in keeping the Website and the underlying systems secure, and to improve the usability and performance of the Website. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.
The data will be stored until the end of the calendar month following use and then be deleted or anonymized (unless required in individual cases for the purpose of legal prosecution) within two working days.
When downloading the App, the necessary information is transferred to the App store, in particular user name, e-mail address and customer ID of your account with the App store provider, time of download, and the individual device identification number. This data processing happens in the context of your use of the App store and within the legal framework you have with your App store provider. We are not controlling this data processing and have no access to this data. However, we may receive anonymous aggregated statistical data from the App store providers based on this personal data.
The main functionality of the App is to upload pictures of plants that are affected by a disease or pest in order to receive an automated analysis of what the disease or pest possibly is.
If you upload a picture of a plant, we collect in connection with such picture the following data:
This data is processed for Performance of Contract in order to analyze the possible disease of pest, and (if you are logged in as a Community user) in order to connect the image to your account. We also use the data, together with other data collected:
for the purpose of improving the analysis results and algorithms, and improving the performance, stability, security and user experience of the App, based on a Legitimate Interest in these purposes. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.
For the latter purposes, we will store and process the data for the life time of the Services (without prejudice for any ‘right to be forgotten’ request from you – see below). Generally, after your Community User ID has been deleted (see below for details) or if you take the image without being logged in, the data is anonymous. However, in individual cases you may still be indirectly identifiable through the location data (e.g. if you take images on your private property); we will not undertake any efforts to identify you by this data, and will not co-operate in doing so unless we are legally obliged and ordered to do so by a competent authority or court.
The App provides Push Notifications that appear in the notification pane of your device. The notifications include information about responses to your Community contributions and important information from us. We do not use push notifications for advertising purposes. You can disable push notifications for individual Community contributions ‘unsubscribing’ from the respective contribution, or disable push notifications entirely in the App settings.
If you use the Community as a part of the App, all information above about the App is applicable to the Community as well.
If you sign up for and use the Community, we collect and process the following personal data of you:
This data is processed by us for the purpose of providing the Community to you and other users. In particular, the base data is required to maintain your user account, and to contact you via e-mail or push notifications.
This data is processed for Performance of Contract. We will restrict the processing of this data once you delete your user account. Your data will further be stored in order to document your Community participation for the purposes of legal defense, which is a Legitimate Interest, for the duration of three full years, and afterwards be deleted.
In the course of you using the Community, we collect, compute and process the following personal fata of you:
The data bases on interactions of users within the Community and is processed in order to make the Community work in a way that users can interact and trust each other. The follower connections base on you following other users or other users following you, respectively, within the Community. Also, we allow users to up-vote or down-vote certain Community contributions of other users in order to support the quality of contributions. Based on the interactions, we compute users ranks and reputation for your user account in order for other users to get an idea of your seniority within the Community.
This data is processed for Performance of Contract. If you choose to delete your Community account, you may request from us to anonymize the data (your contributions will be marked as being from a deleted user). Otherwise, we will continue to store this data out of our Legitimate Interest to maintain Community content that bases on interactions usable for all users (without prejudice for any ‘right to be forgotten’ request from you – see below).
When you use the Website, the App or the Community, we use technologies to store information on your device. We refer to these technologies as “cookies”, while, for the purpose of this Privacy Notice, this also includes functionally similar technologies (e.g. HTML5 storage objects). Our web server supplying the Website and our servers the App (including the Community) connects to can store cookies on your computer or mobile device, respectively. The cookie data are then transmitted back if your computer or mobile device requests information from our servers, so that cookie data can be processed in order to provide the requested information.
If you use the Website, you can inspect the cookies in your internet browser. You can also adjust your browser settings to accept cookies or not. Also, we ask you whether or not you want to accept cookies on our Website (your choice is stored in a cookie).
We do only use first-party cookies, i.e. cookies that are only functional towards our servers (including servers of others that process data on our behalf). We do not use any third-party cookies, including cookies that allow others to track your behavior.
When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, we will store and process your e-mail address and, if you provide it, your name and telephone number in order to respond to your message.
We will restrict the processing of the data arising in this context after processing is no longer necessary. Your message and our response will further be stored in order to fulfill legal obligations (German trade and tax laws, §§ 257 HGB, 147 AO) for the duration of six full years, and afterwards be deleted.
For our App, we use Google Fabric and Google Analytics for Firebase, services provided to us by Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). With both services, we track the behavior of the App (in terms of performance and crash reports) as well as the usage by users. This includes ‘clickstreams’, i.e. which functions of the App you use in which order. You can find the privacy notice for Google Fabric here and the privacy notice for Google Analytics for Firebase here.
We collect the following data in this context:
We collect this data in order to fix eventual problems and further improve our App in terms of technology, stability, security and user experience, based on a Legitimate Interest in these purposes.
We will fully anonymize the data within a couple of minutes after your usage session. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.
We collect the following data in this context:
We collect this data in order to fix eventual problems and further improve our Services in terms of technology, stability, security and user experience, based on a Legitimate Interest in these purposes.
We will fully anonymize the data within 26 months after your usage session. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.
Within the App, you can opt-out from the collection of data through all mentioned Google services by the use of the opt-out switch in the App settings. On the Website, you can opt-out from the use of Google Analytics by clicking this link: Deactivate Google Analytics
All Services are based on internet connections. Your data is transferred to us via the internet and vice versa. Also, the data you make public through the Services (e.g. your plant pictures, profile information, Community contributions) are transferred to other users of the service via the Internet. This happens in the course of Performance of Contract. Internet connections are potentially worldwide. Depending on your location, or the locations of other users respectively, data may be transferred to and from countries that have no adequate level of data protection.
We refer to different legal bases in this Privacy Notice. Such terms refer to certain provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):
You are entitled to request from us:
If you wish to exercise one or several of these rights, please notify (e.g. by e-mail) the Controller mentioned under 1. above or its data protection officer.
If you wish to complain about data processing, please notify (e.g. by e-mail) the Controller mentioned under 1. above or its data protection officer.
You also have the right to file a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority. This is the Berliner Beauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit (Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information). If you reside within the European Economic Area (EEA), you may also choose to file your complaint with your local data protection supervisory authority.
This Privacy Notice is currently valid as of May 24th, 2018. We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Notice. You can refer to the current version of the Privacy Notice at any time at: peat.ai/privacy-notice and plantix.net/imprint#privacy-notice
