What data does this statement refer to?

When you use or interact with our app, personal data is processed. 

 

Personal data is information about factual or personal circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This primarily includes information that allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity, for example, your name, your telephone number, your address or e-mail address.

 

Statistical data that we collect, for example, when you visit our app and that cannot be directly linked to your person do not fall under the term personal data.

What data is processed and for what purpose? 

When downloading and installing as well as using the app, we collect the following data:

 

  • When downloading and installing the app: In order to be able to download and install our app from an app store (e.g. Google Play Store or Apple App Store), you must first register for a user account with the app store provider and conclude a corresponding usage agreement with them. We have no influence on this, in particular, we are not a party to such a user contract. When downloading and installing the app, the necessary information is transferred to the respective app store, in particular your user name, your e-mail address and the customer number of your account, the time of the download and the individual device identification number. We have no influence on this data collection and are not responsible for it. We only process this provided data insofar as this is necessary for downloading and installing the app on your mobile end device (e.g. smartphone, tablet). 
     

  • When using the app: If you merely open the app without interacting with it or entering data, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of that which your device transmits to enable you to call it up. This is a necessary technical process, during which the following data is transmitted:
     

  • Operating system used (e.g. Android or iOS). 

  • Device type 

  • IP/MAC address 

  • Date and time of the request 

  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) 

  • Content of the request (specific page) 

  • Access status/HTTP status code 

  • Amount of data transferred in each case

  • Version of the Co-Tasker App

 

The IP addresses are deleted or anonymised after use. In the case of anonymisation, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the person concerned cannot be identified or can no longer be identified. The data in technical logs (so-called log files) are evaluated by us in anonymised form in order to further improve our apps and websites and make them more user-friendly, as well as to find and correct errors more quickly. In addition, they are used to control server capacities in order to be able to provide corresponding data volumes if necessary.

 

The data processing is necessary so that you can initially inform yourself about the contents of our app. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation. The processing of the aforementioned data is necessary for the provision of the content. Otherwise, you would not be able to use the app as desired.

 

When registering in the app: The Co-Tasker app serves as a platform for the provision of services. Users can tender the provision of services in exchange for payment. Other users can apply for the provision of these services. In order to post services or view services posted by other users, users must first register with Co-Tasker and create a user profile. When registering on Co-Tasker, the following data must be entered:

 

  • First name/last name

  • E-mail address

  • Telephone number

  • City of residence

 

Co-Tasker mediates personal services between users. This personal component makes it necessary to create a special basis of trust between the users. A prerequisite for this is that user profiles can be clearly assigned to specific individuals. If you wish to apply for the provision of advertised services, it is, therefore, necessary that your identity is verified by Co-Tasker beforehand. For this purpose we need the following information from you:

  • Full address

  • Date of birth

  • Gender

  • Nationality

  • Country of residence

  • Different billing addresses, if applicable

  • Copy of identity card or comparable document (will be deleted after verification)

  • Portrait photo of you for comparison

  • Profile picture  

  • Brief description of yourself

  • Skills

  • Language skills

 

To simplify the billing process, you can also provide us with your tax number. This information is provided voluntarily.

 

We use this information to operate, maintain and improve the Co-Tasker services and to establish the trust between users that is necessary for the provision of personal services. Trust between users is particularly important for the provision of the services offered on Co-Tasker, therefore it is necessary that potential contractual partners can be identified as accurately as possible by Co-Tasker as well as by other users with the help of their provided data already before the tendering or provision of a service. The data is stored in your customer account and can also be updated there. At the same time, your e-mail address or your telephone number in combination with a one-time password sent by e-mail or SMS serves as an access identification. In addition, Co-Tasker can contact you by e-mail or SMS if this should be necessary for the provision of a service or for another important reason. Furthermore, the data is used for the processing of payments.

 

The data processing is necessary to conclude a contract between you and Co-Tasker and other users of Co-Tasker as well as for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the General Data Protection Regulation. 

 

  • When tendering and providing services: If you tender a service or provide it for another user, Co-Tasker collects the following data:
     

  • Name, type and special requirements of the service

  • Status of the service

  • Place and time of the service

  • Price of the service

  • Transaction information related to the service

  • Public comments regarding the service

  • Subsequent modification or cancellation of the service

  • Exchange of messages in text and images between users

  • Mutual user ratings after the service has been provided. 

 

This data is used to communicate the details of the service to be provided and to demonstrate the scope of the service owed. The legal basis for the collection of the above data is Art. 6(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation.

 

  • When using the customer service: If you contact customer service via the app, Co-Tasker collects the following data:
     

  • Content of the message to the customer service

  • Time and language of the message to the customer service

This data is used to review and respond to user concerns. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation.

 

  • When subscribing to the newsletter: When subscribing to the newsletter, your email address will be used for our own advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. To subscribe to our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will only send you a newsletter by e-mail if you confirm in our notification e-mail by clicking on a link that you would like to receive our newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the link provided in the newsletter. We use your e-mail address exclusively to send you our newsletter for our own advertising purposes.

 

The legal basis for this is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the General Data Protection Regulation. 

 

Where can I access my data?

If you have registered as a Co-Tasker customer and are logged into the app, you can view your usage history and your stored data in your profile. To log in, you need your e-mail address or your telephone number and a one-time password sent by e-mail or SMS as an access code. When you register with us, we store the data required for registration as well as the voluntary data you provide for the time you are a customer with us. You can manage and change all data, with the exception of information regarding services already completed, in your protected customer account. Your stored name, email address and telephone number can only be changed after consultation with Co-Tasker's customer service department (reachable by email at: support@co-tasker.com) for confidentiality reasons. 


What permissions are requested?
For some functions, the app must be able to access certain services and data on your mobile device. In the following, we explain which permissions the app may request and for which type of functions these permissions are required. Permissions can be subsequently changed and revoked.

 

  • Push messages: If you give Co-Tasker permission for push notifications, you will receive notifications about services as well as occasional promotions and news at Co-Tasker.
     

  • Photos and Camera: If you grant Co-Tasker the appropriate permissions, the app can access the photo gallery as well as the camera of your mobile device. This feature is used to verify your identity, complete your profile and describe services in more detail.
     

  • Microphone: If given the appropriate permission, Co-Tasker can access the microphone of your mobile device. This feature is used for recording videos as well as voice messages.

 


When will my data be deleted? 
In principle, we only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil contractual or legal obligations for which we collected the data. After that, we delete the data immediately, unless we still need the data until the expiry of the statutory limitation period for evidence purposes for claims under civil law or due to statutory retention obligations.

 

Profile data from your customer profile is used to store information for future use of Co-Tasker. You will be able to access your stored data at a later date, therefore your data from the customer account will not be deleted until you contact us with the request for deletion.

 

Will my data be passed on? 
Data collected by Co-Tasker will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary to process the contract or to provide the technical functionality of the app, or if there is another legal basis for passing on the data. Specifically, Co-Tasker shares the collected data with the following third parties:
