3 Information about the processing of your data
3.1 Download of Mobile Apps
3.2 Use of Mobile Apps
3.2.1 When you open Mobile Apps for the first time, we ask you to specify the country in which you intend to use it so that we can offer you services in the appropriate language and with the intended functionality.
3.2.2 When using Mobile Apps, the backend servers used to provide, for example, user manuals of Geberit products will automatically and temporarily collect information transmitted by your mobile end device in server log files. This data is as follows:
- IP address of the mobile end device sending the request
- Request path and arguments
- Request time
- Operating system of the mobile end device sending the request
The data in these server log files are not analysed in a way that identifies individual persons. In cases where the information listed above contains personal data (particularly the IP address), the legal basis for collecting this data is our legitimate interest in collecting this data to ensure the proper functioning of our Mobile Apps. The collection of your personal data also ensures the security of our IT systems. Your personal data is not processed further and deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was processed, after 30 days at the latest. If the data is stored for other, similar reasons, your personal data is anonymised so that you cannot be associated with or identified from this data.
3.2.3 If the Geberit ID is used for user authentication in Mobile Apps, the following information is stored locally on your mobile end device: Unique identifier (“UID”) of the Geberit ID, your name, email address, phone number, and country. No data is transmitted outside your mobile end device.
4 Sharing your data with third parties
Personal data is stored only locally on your mobile end device. Geberit has no access to this data and does not forward it to third parties. This may differ when using the Geberit ID, so please note the relevant data protection information of the Geberit ID.
5 Your rights
As a data subject you have the right to access your personal data, have them corrected or deleted, restrict their processing or object to their processing.
Since we do not have access to your personal data on your local device, you can exercise these rights yourself by adjusting or deleting your information in Mobile Apps.
If you have any questions, please send us a written request using the contact details specified above or send an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
