Deutsche Telekom Group Privacy attaches great importance to protecting your personal data. We always inform you what personal data we collect, how your data is used, and how you can influence the process.

1. What data is recorded, how is it used, and how long is it stored?

When using the app: In order to generate the desired certificate, the name you type into the app will be stored locally. (Art. 6 (1) b GDPR)

When you use the app, our servers will temporarily record your device’s IP address and other technical details, such as the requested content (Art. 6 (1) b GDPR).

Apart from inputting data using the keyboard you can also use this app to dictate text. Voice input (Google) or dictation function (Apple) is a functionality which our app’s operating system provides. During use, a third party processes the speech (e.g., Apple or Google) as processor and delivers the result to our app, entering it into the input field. Contact your specific operating system vendor for details on the functionality, and how you can switch on/off usage.

2. Authorizations

For the app to work on your device, it needs access to various functions and data on the device. You need to grant certain authorizations to do so (Art. 6 (1) a GDPR). The authorizations are programmed differently by the various manufacturers. Individual authorizations may e.g. be combined in authorization categories, and you can only grant consent to the authorization category as a whole. Please remember that if you withhold consent for one or a number of authorizations, you may not have access to the full range of functions offered by our app.
If you have granted authorizations, we will only use them to the extent described below:

Internet communication
The app requires access to the Internet via Wi-Fi or mobile data network for the purpose of purpose description and storage period.

3. Does the app send push notifications?

Push notifications are messages that the app sends to your device and that are displayed with top priority. This app uses push notifications by default, provided you have given your consent during the app installation or the first time you use the app (Art. 6 (1) a GDPR).
You can deactivate receipt of push notifications at any time in your device settings.
