Data collection upon download
Data collection by us
We only use information about you to the extent that this is necessary for downloading the app to your device. If necessary, we collect information from whichever source (banners, store, etc.) you used to download the app.
If you register within our apps or subscribe to our forum, it is necessary for you to provide personal data. In many cases, use of IPACS services is possible using a pseudonym. Users are encouraged to make use of this possibility.
For statistical purposes, your mobile device and its associated operating system are recorded by us. Beyond the purposes of pursuing unauthorized use of our services, we analyze this data only for statistical and service development. To the fullest extent possible, the information is anonymized.
Access permissions for our apps
Our apps require different access permissions on your device. These are required to guarantee certain functionality of our apps. If you want, for example, to create a profile picture from within the app, we need access to your camera or photo album. If you want to buy additional content through the app, we may need access to the necessary interface to your app store account.
The access permissions on your mobile device are dependent on the operating system (e.g. Android, iOS, etc.) and the store where the app was purchased (e.g. Google Play Store, Apple App Store, Amazon, etc.). You generally receive information on which access permissions are required by our apps prior to installation.
In Apple iOS, see “Settings” at any time for an overview of what content our apps can access. You can restrict these access permissions at a later time.
In Android, various access permissions are also needed on your mobile device. Under “Settings / Apps”, you can review the access permissions of our apps.
Data analysis by IPACS
We do not perform analyses on the behavior of users when using our apps.
Facebook SDK: Within our app, we use the Software Development Kit (SDK) from Facebook. The Facebook SDK is issued and administered by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. By means of this integration, we can link various Facebook services with our app. For example, users can use the Facebook SDK to share contents of our apps on their own Facebook timeline, or to send messages to other Facebook users. Further information about Facebook SDK within iOS can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/ios. For Android, please refer to: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/android.
Facebook Login via the SDK: In order to use Facebook services within our apps, you will need to first use Facebook Login to connect with Facebook. This requires that you have an existing Facebook account or that you create a Facebook account. If you want to use your Facebook account to log in to our services, you will be guided directly in a first step to Facebook, where Facebook will ask you to sign in or register. In no event will we learn your personal login information (username and password). In a second step, you can link your Facebook profile with each service you want to register to use. You will then receive a separate notice detailing which data is transferred to us from your Facebook profile. This generally includes your “public information” on Facebook and anything you make public or make accessible to the respective application. This generally includes your name, your profile and cover picture, your gender, your networks, your username (Facebook URL) and your user identifier (Facebook ID). In order to communicate with you without going through Facebook, we also use the e-mail address you have registered with Facebook.
You can check and modify the status of your connection to Facebook and the respective access privileges of our apps at any time under your Facebook profile settings (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications). Here, you will also find an overview of which information in your profile is public. If you want to cancel the connection between Facebook and our apps, please log in to Facebook and make the necessary changes in your profile settings. We will then no longer be able to access information from your Facebook profile in order to serve you.
Facebook App Events: We use the Facebook SDK service called “Facebook App Events” to evaluate the reach of our advertising campaigns and use of Facebook SDK. Facebook merely provides us with an aggregated analysis of user behavior with our app. We also have no influence on the information that will be processed by Facebook App Events.
You can stop all collection of information by the Application easily by uninstalling the Application. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.
Use of your data
We use your personal information as needed in order to design and continually improve our services.
Disclosure of data
Of course, your personal data will not be sold to third parties. IPACS does not submit personal data received from you to third parties.
Further notes on data protection
Please note that all information voluntarily published by you (e.g. in chat areas, in forums, in comments or by e-mail) can be collected and used by others.
For reasons of own liability, we reserve the right to check these contents.
We process information collected from you according to German data protection law. All employees are obliged to maintain data confidentiality and privacy practices, and are trained in this regard.
If you have any questions regarding privacy while using the Application, or have questions about our practices, please contact us via email at email@example.com.
