How we collect data
The use of automated interactions by uhub.io may change with technological advancement. The following provides a more detailed description of how uhub.io currently uses the data collected through automated interactions.
Electronic communication protocols
When visiting websites or reading HTML emails, information is automatically transferred from you during the connection establishment due to technological reasons. This usually includes network access information (where you are accessing from), device information (hardware and browser or mail client), your IP address (providing clues to geographic location and company), and date and time.
We use commonplace techniques like cookies or pixel tracking (invisible graphics) on our website. These are used to make our website user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files stored locally in the web browser cache of the website user, enabling recognition of the respective browser. Apart from session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you log out or close your browser, we also use permanent cookies, e.g., for the "Keep me logged in on this computer" function, which recognize recurring users. Our cookies do not cause any damage to your computer. You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Of course, you can also delete cookies at any time using the corresponding browser function. However, deleting cookies or setting your browser to reject cookies may affect the functionality of the website.
Personalized or embedded URLs
We may use personalized or embedded URLs, allowing us to identify you without cookies. When using an obviously personalized or embedded URL while navigating through our website, personal data may be collected.
Embedded pixels and tracking technologies
We can use embedded pixel technologies in the electronic channels, which are used to identify individual user visits (in contrast to total accesses) or for advertising purposes. Embedded pixels or other technologies may also be used in emails and online advertising, providing insights into when an email or advertisement was opened and the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. The data collected with these technologies may be linked to the recipient's email address. Information and data correction / deletion of data Upon request, we will inform you at any time which data about you is stored by us. If, despite our efforts to maintain accuracy, completeness, and timeliness, incorrect information about you is stored with us, we will correct it promptly upon your request. You can reach our data protection officer by describing your concern at email@example.com
Retention and deletion
The criterion for the duration of storing personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiration of the period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted unless they are no longer required for contract fulfillment or initiation.
Deleting data and how users can delete their data from the app
Users have the right to request the deletion of their data by contacting us by phone or email.
Security through technical and organizational measures
We use technical and organizational measures, in accordance with Art. 32 para. 1 EU-DSGVO, to ensure the security of data processing and protect personal data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or unauthorized access. The security measures in place are regularly reviewed and improved in line with technological developments.
Protection of minors
Individuals who have not yet reached the age of 16 may not provide us with personal data without the consent of their legal guardians. Personal information may only be provided by individuals who have not yet reached the age of 16 if explicit consent from the legal guardians exists or the individuals have reached the age of 16 or older. These data will be processed in accordance with these guidelines.
If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU) or in a country with the adequacy status as a safe third country recognized by the EU) or this happens as part of using third-party services or disclosing or transferring data to third parties, this will only be done if necessary for the fulfillment of our (pre)contractual obligations, based on your consent, due to a legal obligation, or based on our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we only process data in a third country when the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR are met. That is, processing is carried out based on special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a level of data protection equivalent to that of the EU (e.g., for the USA through the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").
We ask you not to send or disclose any confidential personal data (e.g., social security numbers, information about race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or other beliefs, health, criminal history, or union membership) to us.
