4.9 Through the use of Esders IR / Esders LIVE

Scope

Esders-IR is a so-called “app” for transferring measurement data from Esders devices to an Android device. The subsequent transfer of the measurement data from the Android device to other devices (such as PCs etc.) can be done via email, various online storage services or with the help of Esders LIVE. Data forwarding via e-mail or online storage services can be selected directly in the app, but is not part of the app and must then be performed via the external program used in each case. Esders LIVE, on the other hand, is a paid online service that is integrated into the Esders IR App after activation. An Esders account is required to use Esders LIVE, which is specially designed for storing and processing measurement data from Esders devices. The transmission between Esders IR App and Esders LIVE is encrypted over the Internet and will not be passed on to third parties by us. For support purposes, however, our technicians can access your measurement data if required. Our servers, on which the measurement data is stored, are all located in Germany. In the Esders-IR App, the measurement data can then be downloaded again and documentation can be retrieved from the server. Esders LIVE sends a file to the Android device. This file depends on the type of documentation or report selected and contains free fields, checkboxes, etc. that can be user-defined. The collected data is sent back to the server and the finished test report can be downloaded. A printout from the Android device is also possible via a suitable Bluetooth printer.

Through the described use of our Esders IR App and through the use of Esders LIVE, the following personal data will be processed by us:

  • IP address of your android end-device
  • Person-related measurement data such as “inspector”
  • User name (only Esders LIVE)
  • Email address (only Esders LIVE)

Purpose

Your personal data will be processed by us for the following purpose:

  • Ensuring the smooth technical implementation of our service

Legal basis

Due to the following legal basis the processing of your personal data takes place by us:

  • Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO – Due to our legitimate interest

Our legitimate interest follows from the above listed purpose of the technical implementation of our service.

Storage period

Individual data records are not deleted immediately when they are deleted, but are labeled as deleted. This is technically necessary to enable offline operation with synchronization. When the user account is deleted, it is actually deleted and not just labeled as deleted.

Your rights

You have a right to information, correction, deletion and transferability of your personal data and a right to object to or restrict our data processing. Should you wish to make use of your rights, you can inform us at any time. (e.g. via email: datenschutz@esders.de). In addition, you have the right to appeal to the responsible supervisory authority.

4.10 Through the use of Esders Pi-Note

Scope

Esders Pi-Note is a so-called “app” for reading and extending measurement data from Esders devices. The measurement data is continuously sent via a Bluetooth connection from the Esders device to the Android device and can be added to with GPS data of the route, photos, remarks, etc.. The route and the positions of data recordings and the exceeding of alarm thresholds are thus marked on a map on the Android device. In order to perform its functions, the app needs access to the following functions: Location (GPS), Bluetooth module, local memory. Both the use of the camera and the further processing of the data, e.g. sending by email or storage in an online memory, are offered as external functions, but they are not part of the app. Through the described use of the app the following personal data will be processed by us:

  • Location data
  • Person-related measurement data such as “inspector”

Purpose

Your personal data will be processed by us for the following purpose:

  • Ensuring the smooth technical implementation of our service

Legal basis

Due to the following legal basis the processing of your personal data takes place by us:

  • Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO – Due to our legitimate interest

Our legitimate interest follows from the above listed purpose of the technical implementation of our service.

Storage period

When the app is deleted, the data is deleted from the local memory.

Your rights

You have a right to information, correction, deletion and transferability of your personal data and a right to object to or restrict our data processing. Should you wish to make use of your rights, you can inform us at any time. (e.g. via email: datenschutz@esders.de). In addition, you have the right to appeal to the responsible supervisory authority.
