Google Firebase

 

Our services use Google Firebase technology from Google Inc. and its various functionalities such as push notifications. Firebase Analytics make it possible to analyze the usage of our services. This means that entirely anonymous data regarding the usage of our service is collected and subsequently transmitted to and stored by Google. Google utilizes the advertising ID of the end device for this purpose. You can restrict the use of the advertising ID in your device settings (iOS: Privacy > Advertising > No Ad Tracking / Android: Account > Google > Ads). Furthermore, we use Firebase Remote Config, which allows us to perform A/B testing and customize the behavior and appearance of the app without requiring users to download a new version. The legal basis for the data analysis and the use of Firebase is a legitimate interest (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and efficient operation of our services) as provided for in Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Credit Assessment

emmy assesses the creditworthiness of its customers on a random basis and when necessary by consulting the following credit rating agencies [e.g. CRIF GmbH]. Processing is based on legitimate interests of emmy pursuant to Article 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR. It is in emmy’s interest to assess the customer’s ability to pay in the event of advance payments.

Data Processing during usage of the emmy app

emmy is permitted to collect, process, store and use the personal data provided in the course of concluding the basic and individual rental agreement, including usage and vehicle data as well as data for determining the location of the vehicle, to the extent necessary for the execution of the basic agreement and thus the respective individual rental agreements. For exact billing of the customer’s usage, the starting point, starting time, duration of use, destination and time of arrival at destination are recorded for every individual rental transaction. This data is then used for invoicing purposes by emmy. The legal basis for the processing of this data is therefore the contractual fulfilment in accordance with Article 6 Section 1 lit. b GDPR. Moreover, no location tracking takes place when the vehicles are properly used by customers. Tracking of vehicles – irrespective of their usage –  only takes place via the usage of manual location determination, insofar as necessary for the provision of emmy’s services. The manual location determination is necessary for the carrying out of charge status queries to ensure a timely recharging and redeployment of the vehicles. Furthermore, manual location determination is necessary in order to collect vehicles as required and to park them at points dispersed within the designated area of operation, thus allowing the vehicles to again be made available for use to multiple customers. In the event of a violation of the return obligations or in other cases of behavior in breach of the contract, emmy shall also be entitled to determine the location of the vehicle in question via tracking. In the event of administrative offences or traffic violations, the customer’s personal information (surname, first name, address) shall be transmitted to the traffic and/or regulatory authorities to the extent necessary. Moreover, emmy shall be entitled to contact the customer by telephone in the event of a malfunction of the rental or usage process to determine the cause of the malfunction. Data shall only be passed on to third parties insofar as this is permitted or required by applicable law. The legal basis for the processing of personal data is the contractual fulfilment pursuant to Article 6 Section 1 lit. b GDPR as well as legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 Section 1 lit. f GDPR. It is in emmy’s interest to protect its property as well as assert and enforce any claims.      

Emmy only stores your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil its contractual obligations to you. However, in line with retention obligations under applicable fiscal and commercial law, emmy retains the personal information you provide in connection with the contractual relationship for a period of 10 years after fulfilment of the contract, but for no longer than the statutory period of limitation of 30 years. 

Transmission to Third Parties

We also transfer your personal data to third parties or processors to the extent necessary:

  • to corporate affiliates;
  • to IT service providers and/or providers of data hosting, data processing or similar services;
  • to other service providers and providers of tools and software solutions who also support us in the provision of our services and act on our behalf;
  • to any third party who contributes to the fulfilment of our obligations to our customers (e.g. payment service providers for payment processing);
  • to other external third parties to the extent necessary (e.g. auditors, insurance companies in the event of a claim, legal representatives if necessary, etc.);
  • to authorities and other public bodies to the extent required by law (e.g. tax authorities, etc.).

Security

We use technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data managed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) can have security gaps. Perfect data protection against third-party access is not possible.

Right of objection and information

At any time, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data.

If you have any questions about this, which could not be answered by this privacy policy, you can always contact us via the contact information provided in the imprint.
