DATA SECURITYTo ensure that your data is secure during transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods in this app in accordance with Art. 32 GDPR.
REQUIRED APP PERMISSIONSWe require the following permissions from you in order that you can use the UNLEASHED-Hardware together with the UNLEASHED-App. We will use the data that we have access to as part of this authorization only for the stated purposes. We do not collect any data that we do not actually need for the stated purposes.
BLUETOOTH®Bluetooth® is used to establish a connection between your smartphone and the UNLEASHED-Hardware. This hardware needs to be be plugged into a working and compatible (a complete compatibility list can be found at www.foolography.com) DSLR. Thus you’ll be able to control this specific camera remotely with the UNLEASHED-App. During this process the camera settings, if needed and approved by you: photos and location, are transferred amongst the your smartphone and your camera.
VOLUNTARY APP PERMISSIONS
LOCATIONThe app requires information about your location in case you want to use the “Geotagging” feature. “Geotagging” allows your photos taken with your DSLR to be tagged in the EXIF data with your smartphone’s location. Thus you can see afterwards, where you took each picture. We don’t save your location in any case. Your location is only used amongst you smartphone and your UNLEASHED-Hardware. You can adjust your location-settings in your smartphone’s general settings at any time.
PHOTOSThe app requires access to your camera folder in case you want to use the “Image-Review” feature. “Image-Review” allows you to save photos from your camera to your smartphone’s camera folder immediately. You can adjust your photo-settings in your smartphone’s general settings at any time.
PROCESSING OF NON-PERSONAL DATA WHEN USING UNLEASHED (APP & HARDWARE)Non-personally identifiable information in this sense is information collected or processed for solely statistical purposes (e.g. about the usage behaviour within the app), which cannot be traced back to a natural person.
Firebase-ANALYTICSWe want to understand how UNLEASHED users use our app, so that we can continually improve it.
Based on our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our app offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR), we use Firebase Analytics, an app analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Firebase uses so-called “instance IDs”. The information generated by those IDs about the use of the app are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Firebase will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our app by users, to compile reports on the activities within the app – such as: Time when you open the UNLEASHED app, your behavior within the app (eg, selecting a setting), duration of app use or time spent in certain app areas, device information (eg information about the operating system and the app version) – and to provide us with other services (eg information about app crashes) related to the use of this app. In this case, pseudonymous user profiles of the processed data can be created. However, all this information is processed completely anonymously, so that no conclusions can be drawn to your person. Consequently, we only use Firebase Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Firebase within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address submitted by the user’s app will not be merged with other Google data.
In addition to the “Instance ID” described above, Google also uses the advertising ID of the device for Firebase Analytics. In the device settings of your mobile device you can limit the use of the advertising ID. For Android: Settings> Google> Ads> Reset Advertising ID For iOS: Settings> Privacy> Advertising> No Ad Tracking
We do not use Firebase services that use personally identifiable information, such as IP addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers or passwords. For more information about Firebase’s privacy and security, visit: https://firebase.google.com/support/privacy/.
PUSH NOTIFICATIONPush messages allow us to keep you up-to-date with regards to the current process of certain features, such as the Timelapse mode, as well as possible errors and problems that might occur during the shoot so you can make adjustments to your photo series. In addition, it is possible for us to inform you in the fastest possible way about new features, updates as well as malfunctions. If you wish to forgo receiving this exclusive information, you can disable push notifications in your smartphone settings at any time (Home screen -> Settings -> Notifications).
TRANSFER OF YOUR DATA TO THIRD PARTIESIf, in the context of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties), transmit them to them or otherwise grant access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (eg if a transmission of the data to third parties pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR to fulfill the contract), if you have consented to a legal obligation or based on our legitimate interests.
If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “data-processing-agreement”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.
TRANSFER OF YOUR DATA TO THIRD COUNTRIESIf we process data in a third country (ie outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or in the context of the use of third party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this will only be done if it is to fulfill our (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or have the data processed in a third country only in the presence of the special conditions of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. i.e. the processing is e.g. on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the officially recognized level of data protection or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).
