III. Data processing LEDVANCE LUX-O-METER app

On this page we inform you about the data protection regulations applicable in the LEDVANCE LUX-O-METER app for Android and iOS ("app"). The app is an offer of LEDVANCE GmbH, Parkring 29-33, 85748 Garching, Germany ("LEDVANCE GmbH", "we" or "us"). Further information on data protection, e.g. on our company presence in social networks or electronic contact via email, can be found at: https://www.ledvance.com/professional/company/about-ledvance/privacypolicy/index.jsp

1. Scope of processing personal data

The LEDVANCE LUX-O-METER is a smartphone app for testing the lighting in your workroom. By measuring the intensity of the light in the room, it checks whether the corresponding room is optimally illuminated or should be brighter or darker.

Registration in the app is not necessary. The app is installed on the corresponding end device of the user, which means that no log files are sent to LEDVANCE GmbH. Personal data is only communicated to LEDVANCE GmbH in pseudonymised or anonymised form by using Crashlytics in order to identify errors in the app and eliminate them for the future. This data is not merged with other data sources.

2. Purpose of data processing

The data described is collected and used to ensure error-free functioning of the app and to identify errors.

3. Legal basis for data processing

The processing of technical data serves to protect a legitimate interest of our company in providing a functional application for users and is therefore based on art.

6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR as the legal basis for the processing.

4. Duration of storage

Personal data will be stored for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this privacy policy or as required by law. In addition, relevant data may be deleted if you exercise your right to object.

5. Objection and removal

You can object to the processing and storage of your personal data at any time by sending an informal email to contact@ledvance.com .

IV. Authorisations and telemetry data

1. Scope of processing personal data

We collect telemetry data in our app for error reporting. We do this by using the Firebase Analytics tool from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA and the representative in the Union Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, D04 E5W5, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: Google), in particular by using Crashlytics. During the telemetry data processing, the behaviour within the app and device information such as

  • Model
  • OS version

of the user is collected.

To implement the functions in the app, the following authorisations are requested or hardware components of the end device are used:

  • Light sensor (Android)
  • Camera (iOS)

The use of Firebase Analytics may result in a data transfer to US servers. To ensure appropriate safeguards for the protection of the transfer and processing of personal data outside the EU, the transfer of data to and processing of data by Google is carried out on the basis of appropriate safeguards pursuant to art. 46 et seqq. GDPR, in particular by concluding so-called standard data protection clauses pursuant to art.

46 para. 2 lit. c GDPR. Further information can be found here:

2. Purpose of data processing

The purpose of the processing is to provide functionalities of the app and to generate error reports in case of failures.

3. Legal basis for data processing

The data is collected based on art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The app provider has a legitimate interest in providing a functioning app as well as continuous improvement in the event of malfunctions.

4. Duration of storage

Your personal information will be retained for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this privacy policy or as required by law. In addition, relevant data may be deleted if you exercise your right to object.

5. Objection and removal

You can object to the processing and storage of your personal data at any time by sending an informal email to contact@ledvance.com .

V. Rights of the data subject

When your personal data is processed, you are subsequently a data subject in the sense of the GDPR and have the following rights:

1. Right to information

You may request from the data controller to confirm whether your personal data is processed by them. If such processing is the case, you can request the following information from the data controller:

  • The purpose for which the personal data is processed;
  • The categories of personal data being processed;
  • The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you have been disclosed or are still being disclosed;
  • The planned duration of the storage of your personal data or, if specific information is not available, criteria for determining the duration of storage;
  • The existence of a right to rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to restriction of processing by the data controller or a right to object to such processing;
  • The existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  • All available information on the source of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
  • The existence of automated decision-making including profiling under article 22 para. 1 and para. 4 GDPR and, in certain cases, meaningful information about the data processing system involved, and the scope and intended result of such processing on the data subject.

You have the right to request information on whether your personal data will be transmitted to a third country or an international organisation. In this context, you can then request for the appropriate guarantees in accordance with art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.

2. Right to rectification

You have a right to rectification and/or completion of the data controller, if your processed personal data is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must correct the data without delay

3. Right to the restriction of processing

You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under the following conditions:

  • If you challenge the correctness of your personal data for a period of time that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of your personal data;
  • The processing is unlawful, and you refuse the erasure of the personal data and instead demand the restriction of the use of the personal data;
  • The representative no longer needs the personal data for the purpose of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
  • If you have objected to the processing pursuant to art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet certain whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data may with the exception of data storage only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest, interest to the Union, or a Member State.

If the processing has been restricted according to the beforementioned conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to erase

If you request from the data controller to delete your personal data with immediate effect, they are required to do so immediately given that one of the following applies:

  • Personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed.
  • You revoke your consent, to which the processing is allowed pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a or art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing the data.
  • According to art. 21 para. 1 GDPR you object to the processing of the data given that the processing of the data is justified by a legitimate interest, or you object pursuant to art. 21 para. 2 GDPR.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The act of deleting your personal data will invoke a legal obligation under the Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
  • Your personal data was collected in relation to information business services offered pursuant to art. 8 para. 1 GDPR.

b) Information to third parties

If the data controller has made your personal data public and has to delete the data pursuant to art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, they shall take appropriate measures, including technical means, to inform data processors who process the personal data, that a request has been made to delete all links to such personal data or copies or replications of the personal data, taking into account available technology and implementation costs to execute the process.

c) Exceptions

The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary

  • to exercise the right to freedom of speech and information;
  • to fulfill a legal obligation required by the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the representative is subject, or to perform a task of public interest or in the exercise of public authority delegated to the representative;
  • for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;
  • for archival purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in subparagraph (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
  • to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have the right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing over the data controller, they are obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of the correction or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You reserve the right to be informed about the recipients of your data by the data controller.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive your personal data given to the data controller in a structured, standard and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another person without hindrance by the data controller who was initially given the data, given that

  • the processing is based on a consent in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR or art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR and
  • the processing is done by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to maintain that your personal data relating to you are transmitted directly from one person to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons shall not be affected.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the data controller.

7. Right to object

Subjective to your situation, you have, at any time, the right to object against the processing of your personal data pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data in regard to such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct mail.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purpose.

Regardless of Directive 2002/58/EG, you have the option, in the context of the use of information society services, to exercise your right to object to automated procedures that use technical specifications.

8. Right to revoke the data protection consent declaration

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

9. Automated decision on a case-by-case basis, including profiling

You have the right not to subject to a decision based solely on automated processing including profiling that will have legal effect or affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

  • is required for the conclusion or execution of a contract between you and the data controller,
  • is permitted by the Union or Member State legislation to which the data controller is subject, and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or
  • with your expressed consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data under art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take appropriate measures to uphold your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including the right to obtain assistance from the data controller or their representative, to express your opinion on the matter, and to contest the decision.

10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in the Member State of their residence, place of work or place of alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you violates the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to art. 78 GDPR.
