3. Personal data and processing by radio.de

3.1 When downloading the App

When downloading the App from the Apple App Store, a service of Apple Inc, One Apple Park Way, Cupertino, California, USA, 95014 (“Apple”), the Google Play Store, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland, (“Google”), the Amazon App Store, a service of Amazon Europe Core S.à.r.l., 38, avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (“Amazon”), the Samsung Galaxy Store, a service of Samsung Electronics (UK) Limited, Samsung House, 1000 Hillswood Drive, Chertsey, Surrey KT16 0PS (“Samsung”), the Huawei AppGallery, a service of Huawei Technologies Co, Ltd, Huawei Base, Bantian, Longgang District, Shenzhen, China (“Huawei”), your personal data required for the respective download and usually contained in your respective Apple Account, Google Account, Amazon Account, Samsung Account, Huawei Account will be transferred to the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, Amazon App Store, Samsung Galaxy Store, Huawei AppGallery. radio.de has no influence on the scope of this data processing. For more information on the scope of data collection by the respective providers, please refer to their respective data privacy policy.

3.2 When opening the app

In order to enable you to use the App optimally, radio.de collects, processes and stores data regarding your use of the App, so-called “server log files” (hereinafter also “log files”). Every access to our App is therefore logged. The log files created from this contain the following data: IP address, date and time of access, operating system version, app version. The collection and processing of the information stored in the log files only serves the anonymised evaluation for statistical purposes, i.e. to analyse your use of our App and thus to continuously improve our services. Our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (f) GDPR follows from the aforementioned purposes. The data collected in this way cannot be assigned to you as a specific person. This data will not be merged with other data sources.

3.3 When using the App

In our App, we refer to third-party radio streams. In order to enable you to receive the programmes of the various stations, the respective service providers will process the following information as soon as you play the respective station: IP address, date and time, operating system of your end device. Please refer to the privacy policy of the respective service providers for more information. We have no influence on the storage and further use of your data by the service providers.

In order to be able to offer you functions and services of our App that are tailored to your location (e.g. the display of stations in your surroundings), the collection of location data is necessary for this specific use of the App. This so-called “geolocalisation”, i.e. the assignment of an app opening to the location of the app opening, is carried out on the basis of the IP address of your end device and possibly also by determining your location data via GPS. Our App therefore uses your IP address to determine your rough location in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (b) GDPR for the purpose of providing the service. At no time can conclusions be drawn about your specific location. In order to improve the display of local stations for you, our App can also access the GPS location data of your mobile device in accordance with Article 6 para. s. 1 (a) GDPR on the basis of your consent, provided that you enable the collection of location data on your device by granting the corresponding authorisation. This is initially done through a pop-up window that is displayed on the screen of your mobile device when you use the App. You can also grant or withdraw the authorisation to collect location data at any time in the device settings of your mobile device. radio.de hereby points out, however, that it cannot be guaranteed that some functions of the app cannot be used or cannot be used completely. Even when GPS data is collected, no conclusions can be drawn about your specific location at any time, as the location data determined by GPS is technically shortened by radio.de. If the location survey via GPS is active, your mobile end device will usually show you this within the scope of the screen display by using a specific symbol. This data is not merged with other data sources. If location data is also transmitted to third parties via iOS, Android, Amazon, Samsung or Huawei, radio.de has no influence on this.

3.4 Help center and contacting radio.de

If you need help with the use of our App and the contents available on it, you can use our help center by clicking on the link “FAQ” in the app settings, where the most frequently asked questions and suitable help are listed. The FAQs are stored on the servers of the operator Zendesk Inc. (for more information on Zendesk, see section 5.3.).

In addition, you can directly request help from us via email in the settings of the App under the link “Feedback”. For this purpose, we also use the services of Zendesk Inc. to improve processing your requests. You can also contact us by email, letter or telephone. In doing so, we collect, process and store your contact data and the content of your enquiry in order to be able to answer your enquiry, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (a) GDPR on the basis of your consent or in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (b) GDPR, if the subject of your enquiry is (pre-)contractual information or in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (f) GDPR, if there is a legitimate interest of radio.de in the data processing.

3.5 Duration of storage and deletion of personal data

We process and store personal data only for the period required to achieve the processing purpose or for as long and to the extent required by law, but at least for the duration of the statutory limitation periods.

If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a legally prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted routinely after 30 days and in accordance with legal regulations.

4. Cookies and similar technologies, iab standard, Consent Management Platform

radio.de uses cookies and similar technologies to collect various device information (also “identifiers” or IDs.“), in particular device identifiers, IDFA and advertising IDs. The following section is intended to provide you with a brief explanation of the technologies and terms used in the Privacy Policy.

Some functions and elements of the App and the content offered therein require that your mobile device can be identified even after reopening the App. The technologies used for this purpose also make it possible to maintain your personal settings or displays over a longer period of time. The data processing that takes place in this context therefore serves the purpose of being able to provide you with all functions and to simplify the use of our App for you as a user.

Some of the technologies used by radio.de or its service providers enable us to analyse the usage behaviour of users. In this way, we learn how the App is used and can thus optimise our App and the quality of the content it offers and adapt it to the respective user behaviour. In particular, we record how often users use the App and its various functions or the frequency of advertisements clicked on. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users. In the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, we can also see how often the App has been downloaded and how many users are actively using the App. We have a legitimate interest in this according to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (f) GDPR.

The aforementioned data processing procedures are carried out - unless otherwise described in this privacy policy - on the basis of your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (a) GDPR.

The following technologies and device information are particularly relevant in the context of the App: - Cookies are small pieces of text information that are stored on your mobile device. - Tracking pixels are small “invisible” graphics that are often used for statistical evaluations for online marketing. - SDKs (so-called Software Development Kits) are software libraries and interfaces that enable the integration of various services and functions. - Device identifiers enable the unique identification of end devices of app users. - IDFA (Identifier for Advertisers), also called Ad-ID (iOS operating system) or Advertising ID (Android operating system), enable advertising partners to create user profiles and display personalised advertising to users. - Click URLs with tracking parameters can be used to register when a link or other element is clicked on.
- Within the scope of the various Google Firebase services, further device information, such as instance IDs, UUIDs (Universally Unique Identifier), IDFV (Identifier for Vendors, iOS) or the Android ID (Android), may become relevant, the functions of which are described in more detail in section 5.2.1.

By changing the settings in your mobile device, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of the IDFA and advertising ID as well as IDFV (iOS) or the Android ID (Android). radio.de cannot, however, guarantee that some content of the App may not be usable or not usable in full. For more information on which technologies we or our third-party service providers use and for what purpose, as well as on the data processed in each case, please refer to section 5. In order to provide you with the highest level of transparency and control over the processing of your data, we follow the Transparency and Consent Framework of iab europe (hereinafter “iab Standard”), including its specifications and guidelines. The iab Standard provides participating advertisers with a common language to communicate users’ choices about the delivery of relevant online advertising and content. The majority of our advertising partners are vendors certified according to the iab standard (an overview of participating advertising partners is available here). You can find out more about the Transparency and Consent Framework on the iab europe website: iabeurope.eu/ We have integrated a Consent Management Platform (hereinafter “CMP”) in our App, which is based on the specifications of the iab Standard and is offered by Sourcepoint Technologies, Inc. (for more information on Sourcepoint Technologies, Inc. please refer to Section 5.4.). The CMP provides you with information on cookies and similar technologies used and allows you to adjust the use of these in relation to certain service providers. You can also use this to grant and withdraw your consent to the setting of these technologies. When you open our App for the first time and make settings via the CMP, your configuration is stored in the NSUserDefaults (iOS) or in the Shared Preferences (Android) of the App on your end device, where the settings you have made are saved. You can check and change your selection at any time under the item “Privacy Manager” in the app settings. The CMP is used in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 © GDPR to obtain and document your consent to certain data processing procedures and in accordance with Art. 6 para. S. 1 (f) GDPR, due to our legitimate interest in being able to offer you a convenient way to control the processing of your personal data.

5. Processing of personal data by service provider

Personal data collected in the context of your use of our App will only be processed by radio.de and third parties listed in this privacy policy. Beyond that, radio.de does not transmit personal data to other third parties. Personal data will only be transmitted on to other third parties in the exceptional case that radio.de is obliged to transmit the collected data due to an official or court order.

5.1 Amazon Web Services Inc.

radio.de cooperates with the following external web host, through which we are able to offer you our App and to process your data securely and efficiently. We have a legitimate interest in this according to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (f) GDPR. Web host is Amazon Web Services Inc, 410 Terry Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109-5210, USA (“Amazon Web Services”). Amazon Web Services is certified according to the ISO 27001, ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 standards, which take into account aspects such as data security, data protection and reliability. The data servers used by Amazon Web Services are located within Germany in the Amazon Web Services Region Frankfurt. The Amazon Web Services privacy policy can be found at https://aws.amazon.com/privacy/.

5.2 App Analysis Services

5.2.1 Google Firebase

The App uses various functionalities of Google Firebase (“Firebase”), a technology of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland, (“Google”). Firebase enables us to perform various analyses on the installation and use of our App. We use Firebase Crashlytics and Firebase Crash Reporting, which help the developers of radio.de to identify and fix app crashes. Stack traces are used to trace crashes back to an app, to display them in the Firebase interface and make them evaluable, and to send notifications (e.g. by e-mail) to radio.de. Furthermore, Crashlytics processes installation UUIDs to measure the number of users affected by a crash and minidump data, small memory images containing information about a crash, to process crashes in Android. The minidump data is stored while the crash session is being processed and then discarded. The aforementioned data is stored by Firebase for 90 days.

Furthermore, we use Firebase Dynamic Links and Firebase Remote Config. Dynamic Links uses device specifications and IP addresses on iOS to open newly installed apps for a specific page or context. Dynamic Links stores device specifications and IP addresses only temporarily to provide the service. Firebase Remote Config allows radio.de to show or hide content in the App and turn certain features on or off by processing Firebase installation IDs. Firebase stores the Firebase installation IDs until we delete them. Then the data is removed from the live and backup systems within 180 days. Finally, we use Google Analytics for Firebase. Google Analytics for Firebase uses tracking data to be able to create evaluations about the use of the apps. For this purpose, Google Analytics uses so-called Mobile Ad IDs, IDFVs (iOS) or Android IDs (Android), Instance IDs, as well as Analytics App Instance IDs. Google Analytics stores some of the data linked to the ad ID (e.g. IDFVs, Android IDs) for 60 days and retains aggregate reporting without automatic expiry. The other aforementioned data is stored by Google Analytics for up to 14 months.

The legal basis for the collection of personal data by Firebase Remote Config is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (f) GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in being able to present the content and functions to you in the best possible way; to do so Firebase Remote Config is technically necessary. Furthermore, the processing of your personal data within the scope of Firebase is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (a) GDPR. You can give or revoke your consent at any time via our Consent Management Platform (CMP).

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and further setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the data privacy information on Google Firebase at https://firebase.google.com/terms/data-processing-terms https://firebase.google.com/support/privacy/manage-iids https://firebase.google.com/support/privacy

5.2.2. InfoOnline

radio.de uses the Scaleable Centralised Measuring System [Skalierbare Zentrale Messverfahren] (“SZM”), an analysis system of INFOnline GmbH, Brühler Str. 9, D-53119 Bonn to determine statistical values regarding the use of the App. Measurement values are collected in an anonymous manner. Your identity always remains protected. You will not receive any advertising via the system. The aim of the audience measurement is to statistically determine the intensity of use and the number of users of an app. With the statistics obtained, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. SZM audience measurement uses an SDK (see section 4) to recognise mobile devices, via which various technical data on your mobile device is created and collected. IP addresses are not stored in the procedure and are only processed in anonymised form. At no time are individual users identified. Further information on the SZM procedure can be found at https://www.infonline.de/datenschutz. The SZM is used on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (a) GDPR, which you can give or withdraw at any time via our Consent Management Platform (CMP). Our App also participates in the audience measurement of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (“AGOF” - Working Group for Online Media Research) and the alliance between Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e. V. (“IVW” - German Audit Bureau of Circulation) and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (“agma” - Media Analysis Council). AGOF, IVW and agma issue reports on a regular basis in studies about the usage statistics of participating services. Anonymous measured values are collected.

5.3 Ticketing system and help centre for customer enquiries

Zendesk

radio.de uses Zendesk, a customer service platform of Zendesk Inc, 1019 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Zendesk”, see also section 3.4). Zendesk is a ticket system for processing customer enquiries. To use Zendesk, necessary data such as your contact details and the content of your request are collected via our App in order to be able to process your support ticket. The data processed in each case is stored on Zendesk servers, which may also be located outside the EU, in particular the USA or the Asia-Pacific region. Zendesk processes the personal data exclusively in accordance with our instructions pursuant to a commissioned processing agreement and using the standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 para. 5 s. 2 GDPR. The legal basis for the use of Zendesk is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (a) GDPR, insofar as you have given us your express consent, as well Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (f) GDPR, insofar as we have a legitimate interest in using a third-party service provider for the purpose of simplifying our operational processes when answering your questions about our services.

5.6.1 Google Ad Manager

radio.de uses Google Ad Manager, a tool of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland, („Google“) for marketing advertising space. Google Ad Manager uses technologies to show you advertisements that are relevant to you. This involves assining a pseudonymous identification number (ID) with your mobile device by means of a cookie and/or similar pseudonymous user identification in order to verify which ads have been shown in an App and which ads have been clicked on. This use of Ad Manager user IDs enables Google and its partner sites and other third parties on whose behalf Google solely works to serve ads based on previous visits of our App and other digital content on the internet. When Google receives an ad request, it usually also collects the IP address of the App user, which is transmitted to the relevant advertising partners for the purpose of delivering advertisements. Google Ad Manager is used on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 (a) GDPR, which you can give or withdraw at any time via our Consent Management Platform (CMP). You can find more information about the Google Ad Manager at https://support.google.com/admanager/answer/9035987?hl=de and about data protection at Google in general at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de

5.6.2 Marketing by iab TCF v2.0 verified partners

For the digital advertising marketing of our services, we use vendors that are certified according to the iab standard in accordance with TCF v2.0 (for more information on the iab standard, please see section 4). Our cooperation with these vendors is not continuous; some vendors only become active through our contractual cooperation with the service providers listed under 5.6.3. For this reason, the vendors operating within the scope of our services may change. An overview of the vendors certified according to the iab standard with whom our cooperation is currently considered likely, can be found here. Here you can also find out to what extent and on what legal basis the vendors are active and specify and configure their preferences for the processing of their data by them.

Please note that other advertising partners may process your data within the framework of the iab network (for more details, please refer to section 5.6.2).

5.6.3.1 Direct campaigns

Occasionally we carry out direct campaigns with different changing advertising partners or agencies with limited runtimes and targeting. Such advertising partners are themselves responsible for data processing.

Possible technical implementation:

Redirects and VAST advertising media - Via the Google Ad Manager we establish a technical connection between our advertising spaces and the advertising partner’s ad server. A pixel-code and click URLs can also be integrated directly.

Physical advertising material (videospots and graphics)- Some files are stored directly in the Google Ad Manager – in that case no personal data is transmitted to the advertising partner.

Pixel-code - An “invisible” graphic is delivered at the same time as the advertising material. The graphic is located on an external server of the advertising partner. In most cases, a third-party service provider works for the advertising partner.

Click URLs with tracking parameters - If you click on the advertising material, you may be directed to the target page of the advertising partner via a tracking service provider. The tracking service provider will not collect any data until you click on the ad.

Online identifier (IP addresses, cookie IDs, device IDs)

Transaction data (such as time of an ad impression, time of an ad click)

Nature and scope of data processing Shortened IP addresses and cookie or device IDs are used to create monthly reports and to deliver advertising material within the App.

5.6.3.2 Reach marketing

With other advertising partners we carry out campaigns with fixed technical setups for an unlimited period of time.
