Date Privacy Policy

Outa is a digital meditation application (hereinafter: App, Product) for Android and iOS.

The following data protection provisions apply to all the App’s users. By installing the app, you agree with the following data protection provisions.

1) Controller

The body responsible for collecting, processing and using the personal data concerning you (Controller) in terms of the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR, is:

Lars Natus

Türkismüherstraße 19

66113  Saarbrücken

Germany

Email: hallo [at] outaapp.com

2) Encryption

All the incoming and outgoing data traffic when communicating with the Apps or with third parties is encrypted via TLS. The code “https://” in the address bar and the lock icon show you that the connection for using our website is encrypted.

TLS encryption means that third parties cannot read the data transmitted.

3) Collection, processing and use of personal data

“Personal data” in terms of the GDPR means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

The Provider only processes the personal data concerning you in accordance with the provisions of applicable data protection law as amended. The following provisions inform you about the nature, scope and purposes of collecting, processing and using personal data. This Data Privacy Policy applies only to the aforementioned Product. If a link leads to you another website, please check the information there for the respective treatment of the personal data concerning you.

4) Data collection when using our website

When you visit our outaapp.com website, the web server automatically creates log files that cannot be associated with a certain person; this processing is based on our legitimate interests pursuant to point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.  Such data may include, for instance, browser type and version, operating system used, referrer URL, IP address of the requesting computer, date and time of access of the server request and the client’s file request (name of file and URL). These data are only collected for statistical purposes and for safety reasons (e.g. in order to investigate misuse and fraudulent acts), stored for a period of seven days and erased thereafter. Data that needs to be stored as evidence for a longer period is excluded from erasure until the respective incident has been clarified.

5) Cookies

In order to make the web pages more user-friendly and effective, Outa and third parties commissioned by Outa store so-called cookies on the customers’ hard disk. The legal basis for this type of use is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.

Cookies are small text files that serve, among other purposes, to record information on how a website is used. These cookies cannot execute programs, nor can they infect your computer with viruses. They do not contain any personal data, cannot be attributed to a certain person and are automatically erased at the latest after one year, unless otherwise stated. Such data is not combined with data from other sources.

The website can also be used without cookies. In your browser settings, you can deactivate or limit the use of cookies or prompt your browser to warn you before a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies from the computer’s hard disk at any time.

6) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies that help to analyze how visitors use the website. The information generated by the cookie about the way you use the website (including your IP address) will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Outa has activated IP anonymization by adding the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” on the websites, meaning that Google will shorten your IP address within a member state of the EU or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand (this procedure is called IP masking). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating the way you use the website, compiling reports on website activity for Outa and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google offers an add-on for web browsers that serves to prevent data collection by Google Analytics and data processing by Google. The add-on can be downloaded and installed at your own risk from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

(general information on Google Analytics and data protection).

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Framework, thus guaranteeing that the European data protection law will be complied with:

7) Firebase Analytics

We use Firebase Analytics for the Outa App. Firebase Analytics is a service offered by Google Inc. domiciled in 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

8) Erasure of your data

Outa stores personal data concerning users as long as the App is installed.

8) Validity and updates

The Data Privacy Policy is currently valid and was prepared on 01. October 2020. Further developments of our website might make it necessary to amend this Data Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to amend the Data Privacy Policy at any time with future effect.
