Privacy Policy

We appreciate your interest in being part of the yamuntu community. Data protection has a particularly high priority for us and we would like to make it possible for everyone to easily and comprehensibly understand what data we collect and what we need or use it for. The optimal use of the yamuntu platforms is only possible with the provision of personal data. The processing of such data, for example, the name, address, e-mail address, or mobile telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the yamuntu GmbH. We have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through these platforms. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

‍Definitions
‍
yamuntu's data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation (EC) when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection statement should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

‍Pseudonymisation
‍
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be specifically attributed to you as an individual without the addition of further information, provided that this additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that your personal data is not attributed.

‍Responsible party (hereinafter also "we" or "us").The controller is yamuntu GmbH, which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or controllers may be designated in accordance with certain criteria laid down in Union or Member State law. In the further course, this term is simplified as "we".

Cookies
‍
The website and the web app of yamuntu GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an internet browser. Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish your browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified by the unique cookie ID. Through the use of cookies, the yamuntu GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. For example, if you use a website that uses cookies, you do not have to re-enter your access data each time you visit the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on your computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in an online shop. The online shop remembers the items you have placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie. You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it may not be possible to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.

‍Recording, collection and use of non-personal data
‍
The yamuntu platforms record a series of general data and information with every call by you or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) your device type, (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our platforms, (5) the date and time of access to the platforms, (6) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, (7) the application from which an accessing system accesses our application (so-called referrer), (8) device ID number (e.g. UDID), (8) device name (e.g. "IP address"), (9) the IP address of the accessing system. (9) mobile phone and Internet provider, (10) language and time zone and (11) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. When using these general data and information, the yamuntu GmbH does not draw any conclusions about you as a person. This information is rather required in order to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimise the advertising for this website and (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website. Therefore, the anonymously collected data and information is, on the one hand, statistically evaluated and, on the other hand, evaluated with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so that ultimately an optimal level of protection is ensured for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by you. In order to make the yamuntu platforms usable in certain locations, we also use location technologies, such as GPS and other geolocation or presence technologies. These technologies are located in various places and send signals that your device can receive, provided you have set your device to receive such signals, for example by enabling location services. When your device transmits location information, yamuntu platforms will notify you of available campaigns, rewards, an article you previously liked, or other information we think is useful. In addition, we provide advertisers with reports on the types of people who see their ads and the success of their ads, but we do not share personal data and information unless you allow us to do so. For example, we provide advertisers with general demographic and interest information (e.g., that an ad was viewed by a woman between the ages of 25 and 34 who lives in Madrid and is interested in software engineering) to help them better understand their audience. We also confirm to an advertiser which ads have caused you to make a purchase or take an action.

‍Recording, collection and use of personal data.
The yamuntu platforms collect a series of personal data and information with each call by you or an automated system. This data and information is stored in the server's log files. This happens during the following steps: (1) downloading the app, (2) creating a user profile, (3) linking your social media accounts(4) buying an item in the partner shop, (5) creating a collaboration, (6) posting a story on Instagram/reel on TikTok and (7) receiving your cashback. On the yamuntu platforms, you can earn cashback by using the submission feature of the app and the camera of your phone or other device to submit receipts of purchases of selected products and selected merchants. For this purpose, data and information such as (1) surname and first name, (2) age, (3) IP address, (4) date of birth, (5) nationality, (6) cookie identifiers, (7) external identifiers such as hair colour, shoe size and dress size, (8) Paypal data including email, address information, the transaction amount, date and time and merchant name and location, (6) networks and connections (such as user profiles, hashtags, etc.), (8) user profiles, hashtags, etc.), (9) user profiles, hashtags, etc. are collected. (9) campaigns you have seen and used and partner shops you have visited, (10) information you have entered such as search terms you have used or which referral/exit pages brought you to our site.

Information we receive from such third parties is subject to the restrictions of those third parties' privacy policies. We also receive information about you that is publicly available, for example, when you submit information to a blog, chat room or social networking site. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of these third parties (listed separately below). The collection and use of this information allows us to (1) make your interactions with the yamuntu Platforms easier and more personalised, (2) store information about your account and/or activities for future interactions with the yamuntu Platforms, (3) gain a better understanding of how you interact with the yamuntu Platforms, (4) enable certain features of the Services, (5) count users who have visited, used applications or features on certain websites and pages within websites, (6) analyse your behaviour on our website and applications, (7) determine the effectiveness of advertising or promotional campaigns, (8) constantly update the yamuntu Platforms and improve/optimise the content and user experience, (9) prepare and conduct demographic, benchmarking, advertising, marketing, performance and promotional studies, (10) manage your cashback payments, (11) determine your eligibility to participate in the cashback programme and campaigns, (12) analyse the use and effectiveness of the yamuntu Platforms. This helps us to personalise your experience of the yamuntu platforms, provide you with software updates and product announcements, better understand your needs and interests, and provide you with other information and offers that we think may be of interest to you, such as targeted advertising and promotions.General use and storageThe personal and non-personal data you enter will be collected and stored solely for our internal use and for our own purposes. We may arrange for it to be passed on to one or more processors, for example a partner, who will also use the data exclusively for an internal use attributable to us. When you register on one of our platforms, the IP address assigned to you by your Internet service provider (ISP), the date and the time of registration are also stored. This data is stored because it is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to clarify criminal offences that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our own security. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution. The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract. The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period.

‍Right to withdraw consent under data protection law.
You have the right granted by the European Parliament and the Council to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If you wish to exercise your right to withdraw consent, you can contact our Customer Support at any time.

‍Applications and application procedures
‍
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail or via JOIN. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted two years after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours oppose deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).Legal basis of processingArt. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect vital interests of you or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).

‍Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
‍
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders. Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation on you to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provisionWe inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that you provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, you are obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with you. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with you could not be concluded. Before providing your personal data, you must contact our Customer Support. Our employee will explain to you on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.Disclosure of informationExcept under certain circumstances, which are set out in this privacy policy, we do not disclose personal information to third parties. Before yamuntu discloses information - both personal and non-personal information - to third parties, we confirm that they have adopted, are subject to, or are contractually obligated to comply with the principles and purposes of this Privacy Policy. In order to provide you with the yamuntu platforms and to comply with applicable laws and legal requirements, we may disclose information about you. The following are some of the ways we might disclose your information:(1) When you are invited to the yamuntu platforms by a friend through our invitation program. Your information is viewable by your friends whom you have invited to the yamuntu platforms, and you can view your friends' joining, user profile information, and future collaborations through the yamuntu platforms. (2) When you request or offer services through our third party partnerships or promotional offers (e.g. completing surveys and quizzes, signing up for new services, etc.). (3) When you submit information and communicate with us through a public forum (e.g. social media, features within the yamuntu platforms, blogs, etc.).

‍Third Party Privacy Agreements
Google Analytics
‍
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. In view of the discussion about the use of analytics tools with full IP addresses, yamuntu uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". Therefore, IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form in order to exclude direct personal references. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

‍Facebook Social Plugin
‍
This website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). We use these plugins to make it easier for you to share interesting content with your Facebook friends. The plugins are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". You can see the list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins. When you call up a web page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin, for example the "Like" button, is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page on yamuntu. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "Like" button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible that Facebook will obtain and store your IP address. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in Facebook's privacy policy. If you do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our websites, you must log out of Facebook before visiting yamuntu. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".

‍Facebook, Custom Audiences and Facebook marketing services.
Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), is used due to our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes. Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law. With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine you as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion"). The Facebook pixel is integrated directly by Facebook when our website is accessed and can save a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on your device. If you subsequently log in to Facebook or visit Facebook while logged in, the visit to our online offer is noted in your profile. This data is anonymous for us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about your identity. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and can be used by Facebook and for its own market research and advertising purposes. If we transmit data to Facebook for matching purposes, this data is encrypted locally on the browser and only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done solely for the purpose of matching data that has also been encrypted by Facebook. The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data usage policy. Accordingly, you will find general information on the display of Facebook ads there. Specific information and details on the Facebook pixel and how it works can be found in the Facebook help section. You can opt out of the Facebook Pixel's collection and use of your data to display Facebook ads. To adjust the types of ads you are served within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as computers or mobile devices. To prevent your data from being collected by the Facebook pixel on our website, please click on the following link. Note: When you click the link, an "opt-out" cookie will be stored on that device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to click the link again. Furthermore, the opt-out only applies within the browser you are using and only within our web domain where the link was clicked. You can also opt out of the use of cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes via the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page and additionally via the US website or the European website.

‍Instagram‍

We have integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform and allows you to share photos and videos and also to distribute such data in other social networks. The operating company of the Instagram services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA. Each time you call up one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the internet browser on your information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding component from Instagram. As part of this technical process, Instagram receives information about which specific subpage of our website you are visiting. If you are logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognises which specific sub-page you are visiting with each of your calls to our website and for the entire duration of your respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned to your Instagram account by Instagram. If you click on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Instagram. Instagram always receives information via the Instagram component that you have visited our website if you are logged into Instagram at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether you click on the Instagram component or not. If you do not want this information to be transmitted to Instagram, you can prevent the transmission by logging out of your Instagram account before accessing our website. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Instagram can be found at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.
