4.1 In order to use VISPA, you must register. For this purpose, we request your email address, your full name and a password of your choice. This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR because the processing is necessary for the performance of the contract to which you are a party or on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit f GDPR if you act for a company. In the latter case we have a legitimate interest in having a natural person as contact person of a company. In order for you or your company to be able to access your dashboard and the services offered in VISPA, registration and login are necessary.
4.2 We perform analyses of logged-in users in order to be able to monitor the functioning and general use of our services. These analyses are completely anonymous, i.e. the da-ta cannot be traced back to individual users. The information is as follows: Number of Unique Users overall; average time spend per user in average in VISPA in minutes; av-erage number of spaces in average per user in VISPA (all spaces of all users); amount of referral invites to non-existing users from existing users total; number of downloads of app; number of new user logins (first time login). The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sent 1 lit f GDPR because we have a legitimate interest in understanding how our services are used so that we can use this information to improve or change them.
4.3 If you give us your consent to do this when you register by ticking the relevant check-box, we will process the following information with your consent (which is also the le-gal basis) with reference to your User ID and person:
• Number of returning Unique Users
• Average time spend per user in VISPA in minutes
• Average number of spaces per user in VISPA (all spaces of all users)
• Amount of referral invites to non-existing users from existing users total and per us-er in average
• Number of downloads of app
• Number of new user logins (first time login)
• Number of daily active users (DAU=View AnalyticsReportDAU), weekly active users (WAU=View AnalyticsReportWAU) or monthly active users (MAU=View AnalyticsRe-portMAU)
• Timestamp when a user logged in the last time
• Number of logins of the user e.g. per month (Total Logins / Total active users)
• Amount of spaces per user (Total number of spaces/ Total users)
• Amount of referral invites per user
You can withdraw this consent at any time with future effect. For more information on your rights please read section 11.
4.4 When accepting our marketing cookies (see section 8) we store the information on your browsing behaviour on our website to your data set in your customer relationship management tool. The legal basis is your consent. You can withdraw this consent at any time with future effect. For more information on your rights please read section 11.
4.5 If you like to book a paid subscription plan, we need more information. The booking of a paid subscription plan is only possible after registration according to section 4.1. For the booking of a paid subscription, we ask for your company, the company’s billing address, VAT and payment data. For the execution of the payment, it may be necessary to pass on the information about your booking to payment service providers or other financial institutions. These process their data on their own responsibility, unless they are processors on our behalf. The legal basis is the same as described in section 4.1.
5. Visibility of your personal data to others
Vispa is a collaboration platform. Therefore, users can see personal data of other users if this is necessary for the use of the platform. This includes, for example, the full name or the first or last name depending on what is entered in the settings in the app. By default, the name entered when registering for our platform is stored in the settings. If a nickname has been chosen, only the nickname is visible to other users. Moreover, other users can see the chosen avatar and all content that a user posts in a shared space. All data is only visible when a space is shared.
The legal basis for this data transfer is Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR because the processing is necessary for the performance of the contract to which you are a party or on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit f GDPR if a user acts as part of a company because we have legitimate interest on fulfilling our contractual obligations towards our customers. Without visibility to other users, offering a collaboration platform is not possible.
6. Data processing by means of log files
When you access our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to our website server. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected automatically:
a) IP address of the requesting device,
b) Date and time of access,
c) Name and URL of the requested file,
d) the website from which the access is made (Referrer URL),
e) Browser used and the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider,

b) Ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
c) Evaluation of system security and stability and
d) Clarification of any abusive page accesses (DoS/DDoS attacks or similar).
The log files are routinely overwritten after 7 days, which means that all the data they contain is irretrievably deleted. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. As a rule, we do not use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. We reserve the right to do so in the event that this becomes necessary in order to clarify abusive page accesses.

8. Your consent to data processing via marketing cookies; Third country transfer
We have integrated a number of third-party marketing tools on our website. Through this, we and the third-party providers process information about user behaviour on our website and can also track users across websites and devices. This enables us to improve our own website and adapt it to user behaviour, but also to target and optimize advertisements on other platforms.
The respective third party provider is indicated in the column "placed by" in the cookie overview. Please find more information here:
Please note that data may also be transferred via third-party providers to the USA, which does not have a level of data protection that complies with the GDPR.
You can withdraw your consent at any time by accessing the cookie settings again here. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

However, we would like to point out that the use of electronic or other communication channels involves risks for the confidentiality of the communication between you and us; this applies in particular to the use of e-mails. E-mails are transmitted in encrypted form on the basis of cryptographic industry standards such as TLS/SSL. If you contact us electronically by e-mail or in any other way, we may assume that you consent to our further use of these communication channels.
