LEGAL GROUNDS

Privacy law in Europe has its legal framework in European privacy directives and state law.  The Data Protection Directive and the privacy Directive are the European minimum standards that have to be implemented into member state law.  In Germany these privacy laws can be found in the BDSG and – more specifically – in the online arena in the TMG (as well as in Federal State law).  Legally speaking almost anyone must post a privacy policy or “Datenschutzerklärung”.  The trigger event for this requirement is the collection of personal data or “personenbezogene Daten”.  Personal data constitutes anything that can be linked back to you, arguably also IP-addresses.  Owners of commercial websites should therefore inform their users of the personal data collected, processed and shared, what the legal basis is, what the personal data is used for as well as for how long the data is going to be saved (§ 96 TKG).  According to the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner the collection of personal data is to be made known via a “Datenschutzerklärung” or privacy policy.  The users are to be informed, which data is collected and who it is shared with (stated in context of Google Analytics).

Article 1 of this law (= German Telemedia Act, d.Red.) Serves to implement Directive 2000/31 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2000 on certain legal aspects of information society services, in particular electronic commerce, in the Internal Market (OJ EC No L 178, p. 1).

Article 1 § 5 no. 1 and 7 also serves to implement the Directive 2003/58 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 July 2003 amending Directive 68/151 / EEC of the Council with respect to the disclosure obligations of certain types of companies Legal forms (OJ EC No L 221, p. 13).

The obligations under the Directive 98/34 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 June 1998 laying down a procedure in the field of technical standards and regulations and of rules on information society services (OJ.  EC no.  L 204 S. 37), as amended by Directive 98/48 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 July 1998 (OJ.  EC no.  L 217 p.18), have been met.

6. IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PLATFORM PERMISSIONS

Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent.  And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent.  The iOS platform will alert you the first time the iGoalCard app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request.  Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the iGoalCard app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.  Sometimes these permissions require more explanation than the platforms themselves provide, and the permissions we request will change over time, so we’ve created these pages to serve as authoritative and up-to-date resources for our users.  To learn about the platform-level permissions that the app seeks, please visit the new iOS Permissions page and Android Permissions page.

6.1 Android Devices

Android is a privilege-separated operating system, in which each application runs with a distinct system identity.  A central design point of the Android security architecture is that no application, by default, has permission to perform any operations that would adversely impact other applications, the operating system, or the user.  This includes reading or writing the user’s private data (such as contacts or emails), reading or writing another application’s files, performing network access, keeping the device awake, and so on.  A basic Android application has no permissions associated with it by default, meaning it cannot do anything that would adversely impact the user experience or any data on the device.

6.2   iPhone

System security is designed so that both software and hardware are secure across all core components of every iOS device.  This includes the boot-up process, software updates, and Secure Enclave.  This architecture is central to security in iOS, and never gets in the way of device usability. Apple regularly releases software updates to address emerging security concerns and also provide new features; these updates are provided for all supported devices simultaneously.  Users receive iOS update notifications on the device and through iTunes, and updates are delivered wirelessly, encouraging rapid adoption of the latest security fixes. To protect your iPhone against any threats, you need to make sure you’re running the latest version of Apple’s operating system – iOS 10.1.1 as of November 1, 2016.
