The following separate privacy policy applies to the Football for Forests Limited (F4F) mobile app, available via the Google Play Store and the Apple Appstore.
The protection of your personal data is important to F4F.
By downloading our application from the iTunes Appstore or Android Market, you have legitimised yourself to the respective Appstore, e.g. via your Apple ID. Any use by Apple or Google of the data collected in connection with the download or use of the application that is not in compliance with the European Data Protection Regulation cannot therefore be ruled out by F4F. F4F has no influence on this. However, F4F does not pass on data to Apple or Google.
Below you will find information on which personal data is collected, processed or stored by F4F:

As of 1 July 2023:

2. Collection of personal data when visiting our mobile application (app)

As a matter of principle, F4F collects and uses personal data of its users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functioning app as well as the contents and services.
Each time the app is opened, the following data is automatically recorded by the system of the calling end device and stored in log files: Name of the retrieved file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, type of your mobile device and operating system. These data are not merged with other data sources. The legal basis for the collection of the data and its storage in log files is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
The temporary collection of data by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the app to your end device and to ensure its playback. The data is also stored in log files to ensure the stability and functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data serves to optimise the website and to guarantee the security of the information technology systems against possible attacks from outside. This is also the legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, at the latest after seven days.
The collection of data for the provision of the app and its storage in log files is necessary for the operation of the app, so that there is no possibility for you to object.

3. Note on app permissions

When installing the app on your device, you can decide whether you want to receive push messages from F4F (Apple) or you will be informed that F4F’s offer includes push messages, which you can switch off (Android).

The data is required to ensure that the push messages are delivered precisely to the device in accordance with the push configuration in the app. The legal basis for the processing of this data is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR. You can deactivate the push notification function at any time by either switching off the push function in the settings of the installed app or by selecting the corresponding app in the settings of your smartphone under “Apps” and configuring the notification function as desired.
