Purposes of data processing by the responsible organization and by third parties
As a rule, our website can be used without providing personal data. As far as personal data (e.g. name, address or email address) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible.
We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned will not take place. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- you have expressively given your consent,
- the processing is necessary to process a contract with you,
- the processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation,
- the processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
- The ovolane® app records your cycle data for evaluation and saves it locally on your smartphone in encrypted form. The cloud service ovolane.me transmits the encrypted and anonymous cycle data – for the purpose of data backup – to a data center located under European jurisdiction. If you lose your SmartPhone or change to a model from another manufacturer, your cycle data will remain available and can be restored on a new device.
- We reserve the right to statistically evaluate the cycle data anonymously to optimize the evaluation process of the ovolane® app and, if necessary, to publish the results for scientific purposes. – The priority protection of personal data is also expressly guaranteed in this context.
As a precaution, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can generally have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Deletion or blocking of the data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided by law. After the respective purpose or expiry of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Provision of chargeable services
To provide chargeable services, we might ask for additional data, such as payment details to process your order. We store this data in our systems until the statutory retention periods have expired.

You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
