Updated 28.02.2019
The following data privacy notice explains how your data is collected and processed when you use ENTAGGED.
By accepting the terms of this data privacy notice, you consent to your data being processed.


In accordance with data protection law, the following entity is responsible for data collection and data processing in this app:

Foolography GmbH
Greifswalder Str. 9
10405 Berlin

Under the terms of data protection law, not only Foolography GmbH, but also our respective cooperation partners are jointly responsible for some of the data processing tasks listed below. You are therefore able to exercise certain rights directly with the respective cooperation partner. You can find the necessary information relating to this in the relevant parts of this data privacy notice.


In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we inform you about the legal basis of our data processing. Unless the legal basis in the data protection declaration is mentioned, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consent is Article 6 (1) lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for the processing for the performance of our services and the execution of contractual measures as well as the response to inquiries is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for processing in order to fulfil our legal obligations is Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for processing in order to safeguard our legitimate interests is Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. In the event that vital interests of the affected person or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis.


To 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.


We require the following permissions from you in order that you can use the ENTAGGED-Hardware together with the ENTAGGED-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® is used to establish a connection between your smartphone and the ENTAGGED-Hardware. This hardware needs to be be plugged into a working and compatible (a complete compatibility list can be found at DSLR. Thus you’ll be able to scan a 1D or 2D code with the ENTAGGED-App and save that code in the photo’s metadata directly in camera. With the ENTAGGED-App you’ll also be able to pair an external scanner with the ENTAGGED-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.

We want to understand how ENTAGGED 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.
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation ( .
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 ENTAGGED 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:


Push messages allow us to keep you up-to-date with regards to the current process of certain features, such as the scanning mode, as well as possible errors and problems that might occur during the scanning so you can make necessary adjustments. 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).


If, 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.


If 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 (e.g. for the US through the Privacy Shield) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called „standard contractual clauses“).
