      (1)               When You download / install our Application, We will ask for permission to use interfaces to access functions and contents of Your device in order to collect certain data including:
      
       
      
      -            Your location,

      (2)               Since We require the data to fulfil our contract with You, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. 
      
       
      
      (3)               We need access to the above interfaces and data in order to provide You with the functions and services of our Application and thus to fulfil our obligations under the general agreement as well as to enable the booking of a Byke or an Electric Scooter.

In addition, if You rent an Electric Scooter, We track Your location when locking and unlocking the Scooter. If a Byke is rented, We retrieve the location of the Byke directly via a GPS module integrated in the Bykes and not via Your device. Location tracking only takes place to ensure a proper lending and return process or to assist You in the event You report a service case.  
      
       
      
      (4)               Access is possible from the moment the Application is installed on Your mobile device.

The data retrieved in each case are generally stored only for the duration of the actual use of the Application, after which they are deleted. We store Your location retrieved in the event You report a service case for a maximum duration of one year at the time of reporting. We store the location data that We collect in connection with locking and unlocking our Bykes and Electric Scooters for a maximum duration of 3 years. The data will then be made anonymous or will be blocked and deleted according to the rules stated in clause 7 of this Policy regarding “Duration of the Storage”.
