How do we collect your data?

Your data is only collected when you provide the data to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter directly into the Apps (via the contact function), or technical data (mobile device, operating system, app version). If you do not contact us via the contact form, no data will be transmitted from your device to us or to third parties.

Our Apps are designed to work exclusively on your device. All calculations are performed locally on your device, i.e. there is no communication with any external servers. The way you use our Apps, e.g. usage time, location etc. are not forwarded or analysed at any time.

You can access and use our Apps and Services without telling us who you are or revealing any information by which someone could identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. You may be asked to provide certain Personal Information (for example, your name and profession). We will never receive and store any information when you fill any forms in the Mobile Applications.

Unless you intentional send data to us or a third party via a built in export function, all of your data will remain within the Apps and is used to perform necessary calculations or to ensure the functions of the Apps.

The usage of the iCloud sync function within our Apps is handled via the Cloud Kit provided by Apple. The terms for the use of iCloud-Services can be read here:

Since the use of iCloud within our Apps is not possible without an iCloud account, we assume that you agree with the Apple iCloud policies and have already agreed to their terms of usage.

The Rahmenfutter UG has at no time access or knowledge of data stored in your iCloud, but has also no influence whatsoever on what Apple does with your iCloud data.

What do we use your data for?

Since we only receive your data if you have contacted us via the contact form, we use this data to help you with your request and to perform an error analysis.

Any of the information we collect from you may be used for the following purposes:

          Respond to inquiries and offer support

          Request user feedback

Processing your Personal Information depends on how you interact with the Mobile Application and Services, where you are located in the world and if one of the following applies: (i) you have given your consent for one or more specific purposes; this, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of Personal Information is subject to California Consumer Privacy Act or European data protection law; (ii) provision of information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof; (iii) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which you are subject; (iv) processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us; (v) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.

Note that under some legislations we may be allowed to process information until you object to such processing (by opting out), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases below. In any case, we will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Information is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.

Disclosure of information

Depending on the requested Services or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested, we may share your information with your consent with our trusted third parties that work with us, any other affiliates and subsidiaries we rely upon to assist in the operation of the Mobile Application and Services available to you.

Retention of information

We will retain and use your Personal Information for the period necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.

Application data

When using our Apps, no data is exchanged between you and any servers of us or others at any time. The data you provided within the App remains without exception within your device or, in the case of an activated iCloud sync function, within your iCloud account.

We do not use any third-party frameworks (Facebook, Google, or similar), cookies, tracking tools, or other mechanisms to obtain or share your data unnoticed or obviously.

If one of our Apps attends to access any data on your device (address book, location, calendar, etc.), you will be asked beforehand via the operating system whether you want to grant access or not. If you deny, there is no possibility to access the data. If you have given your permission, you can revoke it at any time in the corresponding settings of your device.

If you decide to forward data collected within the Apps to us or a third party by mail or other channels,  this will be at your own request and responsibility. The Rahmenfutter UG assumes no liability for the data you may sent out within the App, data accuracy or completeness, nor do we have any influence on any further processing or forwarding on the recipient side.

There are various options to enter data within our Apps. This is usually done manually, i.e. you have to enter data via the keyboard. In some cases, data can also be taken from the address book or location services.

All these data can be very sensitive, e.g. bank details, earnings, working hours or similar. When you enter data, it has to be stored within the Apps on your device or in your iCloud account. This data is protected from external access by the architecture of the operating system. No other application is able to access it.

At no time will this data be automatically forwarded or shared to anybody.

Forwarding the data can only be done by you via the usual messaging

channels, usually via e-mail. If you intend to do so, you are responsible for this data and its protection. The Rahmenfutter UG excludes any liability.

Address data

If you intend to send information from our Apps to third parties, our Apps can access your address book. Furthermore, it is possible to transfer data from your address book to the Apps at so that you do not have to enter it manually.

If you want to use this function, you will be asked beforehand within the Apps via an alert from the operating system whether you want to allow access to your address book. You must agree to this, otherwise our Apps cannot access the data. The data selected from the address book will only be used for addressing and sending in the event of a dispatch by mail and will not be stored outside the Apps or forwarded to us.

If you use the selected data to complete your profile, the data will only be stored within the Apps on your device or in your iCloud account and will not be automatically forwarded to us or anyone else.

The data selected from the address book are:

          First and last name

          E-mail address

          Phone numbers


If you decide to forward the selected or manually entered data via mail or other messaging channels, it will be at your instigation and is beyond our control, so we cannot accept any liability for this nor guarantee the security of the data once it has left the Apps.

Location data

It is possible to record and save your current location within the Apps. If you intend to use this option, you will be asked beforehand by the operating system. You have to grant access. If you do not grant access to the location data, the Apps cannot access your location.

The location data is collected and calculated via the location services of the operating system via GPS. You can only use the devices location services if you have previously agreed to the terms of usage of the location services in the system settings of your device. We assume you already have accepted Apple's terms of use regarding the use of their location services.

The following location data can be collected:

          Current geo-coordinates (longitude, latitude)

The current location of the device can be determined from the captured coordinates and assigned to an address. If multiple locations have been captured, the Apps can calculate the distance between these locations using the operating system's location services.

At no time the location will be shared with us or any third party without your knowledge.

Calendar data

Our Apps can access the calendar of your device. If you intend to do so, you will be asked for consent by the operating system beforehand. If you object, no calendar access can be performed.
