1 Responsible company
The responsible company for the processing of personal data is Humotion GmbH, Heerdestraße 23, 48149 Münster (subsequently “we”).
2 Purpose and legal basis for the processing of personal data
We process personal data that arise during the usage of the app or that you explicitly and voluntarily make available to us by using the app exclusively on the basis of the statutory regulations (The German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), The German Telemedia Act (TMG) and The General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)). This includes the processing of personal data that:
- are necessary for the provision of our contractual services or are legally prescribed or
- for which you have given us your explicit permission or
- on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in security, economic operation as well as the analysis and optimisation of the app to improve the user experience).
With regard to the processing of personal data on the basis of the The General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) coming into effect on the 25th May, 2018, we would like to point out the following legal bases for the processing of personal data:
- Permission: Article 6 Section 1 (a) and Article 7 DSGVO
- Fulfilment of our contractual services: Article 6 Section 1 (b) DSGVO
- Fulfilment of our legal obligations: Article 6 Section 1 (c) DSGVO
- Safeguarding of our legitimate interests: Article 6 Section 1 (f) DSGVO
2.2 Access data (legal basis: legitimate interests)
Each time our website is accessed from your browser, automatic access data are transmitted and are stored by us in log files on our servers. The access data include: your IP address, the referrer URL, the name of the provider via which the access took place, the name of the files accessed, the date, time and duration of the retrieval, the amount of data transmitted, information about the browser and operating system and the http status code.
We save your IP address in the log files for a maximum of 30 days and then delete it or anonymise it. As a result, we do not have any opportunity, neither directly nor with the help of supplementary knowledge, to carry out an allocation to your person. We do not carry out a merger of access data with other data sources.
We process access data on the basis of our legitimate interests corresponding to the statutory regulations, only in order to carry out statistical evaluations in an anonymised form for the purpose of operation and security and for the optimisation of the contents of our website and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a justified suspicion of unlawful use on the basis of concrete indications.
3 The storage of personal data
3.1 Duration of data protection
We store your personal data for as long as is necessary to perform the objectives that have been listed in this data protection declaration. If these objectives cease to apply, then all personal data shall be deleted, as long as longer storage has not been legally prescribed.
3.2 Location of data storage
We store your personal data exclusively on secure and protected servers in Germany.
4 Transfer of personal data to third parties
Unless otherwise indicated, we do not on principle transmit personal data to third parties and do not transmit to countries outside of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA).
4.2 Overview of technical service providers
We may use technical service providers by way of contract data processing for the provision of our services, e.g. for hosting. We may also use service providers for this purpose who are based outside of the EU and the EEA, where differing data protection regulations may apply.
Service providers in the USA basically provide an adequate level of data protection comparable to that of the European data protection law if they are subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield certification or the agreement of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses of the European Union with the receiver.
You can find an overview of the technical service providers that we use, and their data protection declarations in the appendix.
4.3 Transmission of personal data by law
The transmission of your personal data to order and law enforcement authorities or to other government institutions shall take place only within the framework of mandatory national legislation.

6.1 Google Analytics
On the basis of our legitimate interests, we use Google Analytics on this website, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and enable analysis of your usage of the website. The information created by the cookie about your usage of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, then your IP address will, however, be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries that are signatories of the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website in order to compile reports about the website activities and in order to provide additional services that are connected to the usage of the website and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.
We would like to advise you that Google Analytics has been extended by the “gat._anonymizeIp();” code on our website, in order to ensure the anonymised recording of IP addresses.
You can prevent cookies from being saved via an appropriate setting for your browser software; we would however like to point out that it is possible that you might not be able to make full use of all of the functions of this website in this case.
In addition, you can prevent the recording of data that are produced by the cookie and that refer to your use of the website (including your IP address) at Google and prevent the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that is available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
