1. Allgemeines

Wie bei unseren Leistungen rund um den Kran, haben wir bei der Erstellung der Mein BKL App ein Höchstmaß an Sorgfalt zugrunde gelegt. Nichtsdestotrotz bitten wir Sie, die folgenden Hinweise aufmerksam durchzulesen und bei Fragen Kontakt mit uns aufzunehmen (Verantwortlicher gem. Art. 4 Abs. 7 DS-GVO):

BKL Baukran Logistik GmbH
Römerstraße 22
85661 Forstinning, Deutschland
Telefon: +49 8121 2248-185
Telefax: +49 8121 2248-148

Die Mein BKL App verarbeitet, bis auf eine kurze IP-Zwischenspeicherung, die technisch notwendig ist, keine personenbezogenen Daten. Personenbezogene Daten werden nur dann erhoben und verarbeitet, wenn Sie diese von sich aus zur Verfügung stellen, beispielsweise im Rahmen von Anfragen, oder dem Ausfüllen von Formularen. Die Erhebung, Verarbeitung, Nutzung und Weitergabe Ihrer Daten erfolgt lediglich, soweit dies zur Bearbeitung Ihrer Anfrage notwendig ist bzw. Sie dem zugestimmt haben.

Nach der Erstinstallation der Mein BKL App werden Sie, abhängig vom Betriebssystem, nach gewissen Berechtigungen gefragt (z.B. Zugriff Standortdaten, Push-Nachrichten zulassen) Diese Berechtigungen sind für eine optimale Funktionsweise der App notwendig. Diese Einstellungen können Sie natürlich jederzeit in den Einstellungen der App verändern.

2. Google Firebase

Damit die Qualität unserer APP sich stetig verbessert verwenden wir Google Firebase, einen Dienst, mit dem App-Nutzungsdaten vom Smartphones erfasst und analysiert werden können. Google Firebase ist eine Echtzeit-Datenbank, mit der sich Echtzeitinformationen in die eigene App integrieren lassen.
Dazu werden bestimmte Aktionen während der App-Nutzung verschlüsselt und pseudonymisiert (eine Feststellung der Identität des Betroffenen ist damit auszuschließen) an Google Firebase übertragen, damit eine Analyse hinsichtlich des allgemeinen Nutzerverhalten, der Effizienz und ähnlicher Betrachtungsweisen stattfinden kann und im Zuge der Auswertung Rückschlüsse auf die stetige Verbesserung der App gezogen werden können. Sie können die Erfassung sowie die Verarbeitung dieser Daten dadurch verhindern, indem Sie bei den Einstellungen die Nutzungsberichte deaktivieren.
Weitere Informationen zur Datennutzung durch Google Firebase erhalten Sie in der Datenschutzerklärung des Unternehmens

3. Standortdaten

Für eine vollumfängliche Nutzung der Mein BKL App, ist die Standortabfrage Ihres Gerätes von Nöten. Bei der Anfrage wird der aktuelle Standort Ihres Gerätes über GPS erhoben, damit wir Ihnen schnell Auskünfte zu Ihrer Umgebung geben können. Ihre Standortdaten werden lediglich zur Bearbeitung Ihrer Anfrage verwendet. Ihre Übertragung erfolgt über eine verschlüsselte Verbindung; nach Beendigung Ihrer Anfrage werden Ihre Standortdaten anonymisiert und zur Verbesserung unseres Services statistisch ausgewertet. Die BKL kann damit keine Rückschlüsse auf Ihre Person ziehen.

4. Benachrichtigungen

Die Mein BKL App informiert Sie über interessante Neuigkeiten mittels Benachrichtigungen auf Ihrem Endgerät, sofern diese Funktion aktiviert wurde. Benachrichtigungen können natürlich jeder Zeit in den Einstellungen der App aktiviert und deaktiviert werden.

5. Datenverarbeitung

Die Verarbeitung Ihrer Daten erfolgt auf Grundlage des Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO auf Basis des berechtigten Interesses welches im Rahmen der Interessenabwägung erfolgt.

Die Mein BKL App ist über den Apple App Store und Google Play Store verfügbar. Für den Datenschutz innerhalb dieser Stores verweisen wir auf die Datenschutzrichtlinien der Stores:

Google Play Store:

6. Rechte
