Subject of Data Protection
The subject of data protection is personal data. According to Section 3, Subsection 1 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (“Bundesdatenschutzgesetz”), these are individual details on personal or objective circumstances of a certain person or certain persons. These include details such as your name, your postal address, your email address, your telephone number or, where appropriate, even use-data.
Collection and Use of Data
Automated Data Collection
When you access CHARE Website, your internet browser automatically transmits data for technical reasons. The following data are stored separately from other data that you may have sent us:
- your date and time of access,
- your browser-type and version,
- the operating system you use,
- the URL of the website you have previously visited,
- the quantity of data transmitted.
For technical reasons these data are stored and are not assigned to any identifiable person at any time.
Data Entered by Users
You can use the CHARE product both with and without registering. However, you can only access CHARE using certain terminals such as an iPhone, iPod, iPad, Windows, Mac or Android and without additional functions. In order to make use of all its advantages, you have to register. To do this, you must enter your email address and select a password. We require these data in order to guarantee that you are able to make full use of our entire offer. We need these and possibly other data not least in order to respond to your wishes, questions and criticism.
In future, we plan to introduce an option which will allow you to design your account personally. For example, you will be able to add a photo, choose a username and set up a connection to your Facebook user account. You will not be obliged to design your account personally; this will be entirely voluntary.
The central function of the CHARE product is collaboration. You will be able to use this product both online and offline.
Where CHARE is used solely offline, the data you enter will be stored de-centrally on your storage medium. In such a case, we will not be able to access these data.
If you use CHARE in combination with a registered account, all data and tasks entered will be integrated into a database. The purpose of this database is to allow you to use CHARE at various different levels and call up your tasks anywhere and at any time. Data are transmitted to the respective terminal using SSL encryption so that your data are transmitted securely.
We use personal data in order to enable secure, effective and user-related use of CHARE services, including for:
- calling up the front-end via the internet;
- anonymously analysing task management statistics for press releases by CHARE and studies;
- recommending CHARE by using the “Invite” function for friends and acquaintances (email address).
Transfer of Data
We will not transfer your data to third parties as a matter of course without letting you know in advance or asking for your prior permission. We may only transfer your data to third parties without informing you separately beforehand in the following exceptional cases as explained below:
If required for investigating the illegal use of CHARE or for legal proceedings, personal data will be transferred to the criminal investigation authorities and, if appropriate, to injured third parties. We will only do this if there are concrete indications of illegal and/or abusive behaviour. We can only transfer on your personal data if this is used to enforce General Terms and Conditions of Business or other agreements. We are also legally obliged to give certain public authorities information. These are criminal investigation authorities, public authorities which prosecute administrative offences entailing fines and the German finance authorities.

Deleting Your Data

If you delete your account, we will also delete all data completely from your account (lists, tasks and shared lists). Data you have entered in lists belonging to third parties will remain in existence as these are part of third party accounts. If data has to be retained for statutory reasons, these will be blocked and will then no longer be available for any further use.
