Definitions of individual terms in the following text can be found in Section 7 of this Privacy Policy.

3.1 Data Processing via the Jimdo Finance App

Jimdo uses your data, as a Jimdo Finance App User’s personal data primarily to fulfill and perform the contract with you and to provide our Jimdo Finance App services (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR). This encompasses the following processing activities:

3.1.1 Jimdo Finance App Login, Registration und Use

To use the Jimdo Finance app, you must first download the Jimdo Finance app from the Apple App Store and/or the Google Playstore. This involves a data transfer to Google or Apple, which is explained accordingly in the respective App Store / Playstore privacy notices.

Before you can apply for a bank account via the Jimdo Finance app, you must register in the Jimdo Finance app to be able to log in. The next step will be to create a User Profile i.e. to apply to open a bank account.

For these purposes, we process Login Data, User Profile Data, Onboarding Data and Bank Account Data, as well as Transaction Data. The processing serves the preparation and fulfillment of our contractual obligations (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR).

When using iOS apps, you can give your consent in the settings of the app or after a crash (via a device prompt). For Android apps, you have the option to generally agree to the transmission of crash notifications to Google and app developers when setting up the mobile device. The legal basis for the data transfer in this case is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

3.1.4 Security of the IT infrastructure and Log information

We temporarily store data in log files on our web server and evaluate them to ensure the security of the IT infrastructure used for the provision of the app, in particular for the detection, elimination and evidentiary documentation of faults. For the processing described, we use App-HTTP-Data. The Jimdo server automatically collects data from logged-in Jimdo Finance app users in a so-called app activity log about the way the Jimdo Finance app was used. The information is used to analyze and maintain the technical operation of our servers and network and thereby improve the Jimdo Finance app, as well as to combat abuse. For these purposes, we process usage data, event data, onboarding data, and App-HTTP-Data. The legal basis of this processing is the fulfillment of the contract concluded with you pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR as well as our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) in; providing the content of the app accessed by you; ensuring the stability as well as the improvement of our app; ensuring the security of the IT infrastructure used for the provision of the app, in particular for the detection, elimination and evidentiary documentation of faults. We have implemented control mechanisms to align our interests with the rights of the Jimdo Finance App user.

As part of these processing operations, data is transferred to the following categories of recipients: Hosting providers; Error detection and resolution services; Performance monitoring and logging providers, Log data analysis tools. Your personal data will be transferred to processors in the United States for this purpose. For information on the transfer of personal data to third countries, see section 4. For information on the duration of storage of the various categories of personal data, see section 5.

3.1.5 Push Notifications

If you have provided your consent, Jimdo will send you push notifications or in-app messages with information about functionalities and activities in the Jimdo Finance app (e.g., about your new transactions, etc.). A pseudonymized Device Token ID is assigned to the end device, i.e. a unique connection number generated from the device ID, which Jimdo can use to address the push messages or in-app messages to you, as the Jimdo Finance App User. You can adjust your consent to be notified by in-app messages at any time in the app settings.

For this purpose, we process In-App-Notification-Data. This includes, for example, your consent. The legal basis of the processing is your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time via the app settings.

In the course of processing, your data will not be transmitted to other recipients. Your data stored for this purpose will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. Your data will therefore only be stored as long as the subscription for push notifications is active.

3.1.6 Fraud prevention and anti-money laundering checks

When you install the Jimdo Finance App to use the banking services offered by Solaris SE, Cuvrystraße 53, 10997 Berlin, Germany (“Solaris”), and on an ongoing basis while you use such services, Solaris will perform risk assessments for fraud prevention and anti-money laundering purposes. For such purposes, Solaris uses SEON Technologies Kft. (Rákóczi út 42. 7. em., Budapest 1072, Hungary) as a service provider under a data processing agreement with Solaris in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. For the processing activities described in this section, we have entered into a joint controllership agreement with Solaris (Art. 26 GDPR). We will provide you with further information at any time upon request.

In order to perform the risk assessment, the following browser data, device data, traffic data and location data are collected from your mobile device and transmitted to Solaris: IP address including type (e.g. commercial, mobile line, university) and whether it is listed as harmful, TOR value, VPN, proxy, number of accessories attached to your device, whether your phone is muted or not, device system’s volume, country code and name of carrier (a) associated with the SIM card and (b) the device is currently using, device model type and unique identifier, system uptime, iCloud token, version and name of device given by the user in iOS settings, when the device last booted in UNIX time format and UTC time zone, country code and ID associated with device, cookie session ID, and browser details / settings including scrolling behavior. Solaris as an independent controller (Art. 4 Nr. 7 GDPR) may add additional information and will then transfer such data to SEON along with your email address, name and phone number for performance of a risk analysis regarding potential fraudulent or other illicit activities. SEON analyses this personal data based on a mathematically-statistically recognised and proven procedure and will provide Solaris with a fraud risk score. As part of the analysis, SEON may perform email analysis, social media lookup or address profiling. Based on the analysis and risk score, you will be able to complete your registration, be rejected as a new customer, or may be guided through an extended registration process. The decision-making process is automated. If you want to challenge the automated decision and want to have a human review of this automated decision, you can get in touch with us by contacting finserv-support@jimdo.com. Once you have given your consent and are onboarded, Solaris will continuously collect the above data and perform additional risk analysis via SEON for ongoing fraud risk assessment. The legal basis of the processing is your consent and the implementation of necessary steps for entering into a contract requested by you (Art. 25 TTDSG, Art. 6 (1) lit. a, Art. 22 (2) lit. a GDPR). While you are free to give your consent, as a new customer you cannot use the banking service provided by Solaris without consenting, because the fraud prevention and anti-money laundering check is necessary for a secure provision of the banking services by Solaris. As a licensed bank, Solaris has a statutory obligation to fight money laundering by setting up a functioning risk management system and internal security measures as well as an ongoing screening of customers’ activities (sections 4, 6 and 10 of the German Anti-Money-Laundering Act). You can withdraw your consent with effect for the future at any time by email to finserv-support@jimdo.com, but without consent you will not be able to continue using Solaris’ services. Your personal data will be stored until the purposes of processing these data as set forth above have been achieved, and be deleted within 12 months after performance of the risk assessment at the latest, unless statutory retention obligations apply (e.g. under anti-money laundering, commercial or tax law).
