This includes Customer’s name, contact information, including mailing address, email addresses of certain users entitled to access and use the products for or on behalf of Customer, as well as other unique identifiers attributed to Customer (including its users) by us.
Additionally, we may collect and store personal data that Customer (including its users) chooses to provide to us, at its sole discretion, without us requiring it to do so.

Generally, our mobile applications are an extension of Customer’s other Videonetics products.

When you use our mobile applications
If the user has enabled usage data collection, Videonetics uses the Google Firebase SDK (Google Analytics and Crashlytics) inside the Web Client and the Mobile Apps for the purpose of Videonetics analyzing usage data of web and mobile applications. The purpose of this is for Videonetics to gain insights into the usage of the clients and to support bug tracking or help to find performance issues in the clients. Videonetics’s collection of the data stated below is based on the user’s consent (cf. the GDPR Article 6(1)(a)).
The Google Analytics service analyzes the behavior of users while interacting with the Web or the Mobile client. For example, it allows to investigate how users work with these applications, which features are prominent, and which are less used.
The Google Crashlytics service collects data about application crashes like stack traces.
Personal data of operators
The personal data of operators that is collected and processed with the help of Google Analytics for Firebase comprises the following groups of data or information:
- Default user attributes
- Default user actions
- Custom user actions
- Personal data connected to Crash Data
When the user starts the Mobile app, certain default information is transferred to the Google Analytics server:
- IP address – Google uses the IP address to derive the country from which the initial analytics request is being sent.
- Ad-Id – The Android Advertising ID and the iOS Identifier for Advertisers is used to identify users and look up some previously collected demographic data and interests (more information here: https://support.google.com/firebase/answer/9268042)
- Mobile App Data – Firebase collects this data by default about the mobile app
- ServersLoaded – Videonetics defines app startup as a custom action that Firebase shall catch; when this happens, Firebase transfers the custom user data element ServersLoaded to Google Analytics
- Default Action Parameters – Firebase transfers this data by default with each default and custom user action
If you consent to Videonetics’s collection of your data, your data may be transferred to the US (as Google is a US-owned company) where there is not an adequacy decision nor appropriate safeguards in place, as Google may possibly be required to give data access to the United States Intelligence Community without any judicial review. Please refer to our Safeguards for transfer of Personal Data section for more information. This means that, depending on the circumstance, Videonetics also collects and transfers your personal data to the US based on your consent.
Your data will be stored for the period stated in our Retention Period section below.
