PRIVACY STATEMENT ON THE PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA FOR APPS:

The protection of your data is a matter of utmost priority for the VE Vision Education GmbH, Reisnerstraße 50/13, A-1030 VIENNA/Austria  (“VISION EDUCATION”), operator of the apps “VISION EDUCATION Fußball” (“app”), “VISION EDUCATION Football” (“app”) and “LearnMatch” (“app”).

VISION EDUCATION collects, processes and uses only that personal data of yours which is important for rendering services, or the use of which is legitimised by data protection regulations, or which you have agreed on being collected, processed and used.

a) Use of your data by VISION EDUCATION and disclosure of your data

VISION EDUCATION will collect notably the following personal data:

  • registration data (e.g. name, email address and password);

This data is collected by VISION EDUCATION for notably the following purposes:

  • creating the account;
  • archiving the level of learning;
  • for purposes of marketing, market research, newsletter.

By order of the competent authorities, we at VISION EDUCATION are permitted in individual cases to provide data if this is necessary to carry out prosecution proceedings, to enable the police forces of the German federal states to prevent crimes, to fulfil the statutory tasks of the constitution protection authorities of the German federal government, the German federal states, the Federal Intelligence Services, the Military Intelligence, or the Federal Criminal Police Office within its scope of countering the threats of international terrorism, or to enforce intellectual property rights.

b) User profiles

VISION EDUCATION can create user profiles under pseudonyms for the purposes of advertising, market research, or the need-based design of services, provided that the user does not object to this. For the creation of user profiles personal data will not be used but only anonymous or pseudonymous data instead. VISION EDUCATION will not link the data of the user profile under the pseudonym with the data relating to the bearer of the pseudonym.

The use of Google Analytics with anonymize function

VISION EDUCATION uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are saved on your computer, to help us analyse how our website is used. The information generated by those cookies, e.g. time, place and frequency of page visits, including your IP-address, is transferred to a Google server in the USA, and is stored there.

VISION EDUCATION uses Google Analytics with the extension “_gat._anonymizeIp” for its apps. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened and thus anonymized by Google within Member States of the European Union or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google will in its own terms not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; VISION EDUCATION would like you to note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the website.

Use of Facebook-SDK (Software Development Kit)

VISION EDUCATION integrates a so called Facebook-SDK in its apps for mobile operating systems. This software enables us to understand which promotional campaign on the Facebook social network encouraged users to download the apps. For this purpose, VISION EDUCATION sends the app-ID, the app-version and the confirmation that the app was initiated to Facebook. VISION EDUCATION does not send additional data to Facebook. However, the advertising ID will, in the case of your app, not be used for optimising advertising, but will be discarded by Facebook, as VISION EDUCATION has generally suspended the use of the advertising ID for optimised advertising through Facebook. Hence, the individual user cannot be identified at any time. Information about the user’s identity is therefore not known to VISION EDUCATION, even when the so-called share-functionalities are being used as mentioned under Section e).

c) The use of Facebook Login

The app allows connection of the Facebook profile with the app. For this purpose, you are asked when starting the app whether to log in with your Facebook account or whether to skip this. The app is also available to use without linking one’s Facebook profile with the app. The user is asked upon clicking on “f login” whether the app is granted access to the following information: public profile and email address. The user can accept this by choosing “OK”, or “cancel” the request and decline access to the data. As long as access to the information is being declined in this manner, the above stated functionalities are not available to use and the user is not logged in to Facebook.

d) Use of the so-called Social Share functionalities

The integrated Facebook SDK allows, besides the functionalities stated above, the additional sharing of content from the app with other users of the Facebook social network www.facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S.California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

Via Facebook’s functionalities the user can actively share a message about using the app on this platform. This happens through the use of the “share on facebook” button on the app’s home screen.

e) Information, revocation of your consents grants and correction, blocking or deleting of your data

You are entitled to demand information about your saved personal data free of charge from VISION EDUCATION at any time. This information will be provided in writing. The request for information enclosing a copy of your identity card is to be submitted in writing to VE Vision Education GmbH, Reisnerstraße 50/13, A-1030 VIENNA/Austria. Including a copy of an identity document serves as a protection of your data from manipulation by a third party. You can at any time partially or fully withdraw your given consent in the collection, processing, and use of personal data with effect for the future. The same applies to any subsequent, further given consent for the collection, processing or use of your personal data.

In addition, you can also at all times demand rectification of incorrect personal data as well as barring or deletion of your data by us. In this case, also contact VISION EDUCATION (see above for address) in writing, enclosing a copy of your identity card.

f) Data security

If the transmission of your data is handled via the internet within the scope of the services provided by VISION EDUCATION, the security of your data cannot be guaranteed. Through technological and organisational measures, however, VISION EDUCATION secures their system against loss, destruction, access, change and dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. Your data in particular is transmitted encrypted to VISION EDUCATION. VISION EDUCATION employs the encryption system HTTPS (SSL) for this purpose.
