Please note that some information is only applicable where Regulation EU 2016/679 (GDPR) applies to you.

The controller for your personal data is the entity responsible for the digital app that you use.

Below you will find information about how we process your personal data, the purpose for our processing, and the legal basis according to the GDPR if applicable:

1. Use of digital app

We process your personal data in order to offer the digital app to you. The purpose of our processing is therefore the technical provision of the app (including log-in and authentication), understanding your interests, and supporting/furthering our business relationship. Personal data required for this is as follows:

Basic contact details: These may be private, but are generally only your professional details.

Technical data: Generated by your usage of the app.

App input: This is the information collected by us or input by you during your usage of the app. Please note that this can also include information collected from you with your permission from national agricultural services in order for us to properly offer the app to you. More information on this is provided where you are so affected.

Location data: For a small portion of our apps, you can use a map feature to see relevant locations (i.e., our closest shops). The app will prompt you to confirm that you really wish to share this if you are affected.

The legal basis for our processing is contract necessity (Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR) where a contractual arrangement exists between your business and us. We therefore provide the app on the basis of or in connection with our service provision or products that you have purchased.

Where no contract exists between your business and us, the legal basis for processing is our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR), our legitimate interests being the successful technical provision of our app, understanding your interests, and furthering our business relationship. This is because these apps are designed for existing or prospect customers in our industry and support/extend our products.  

In some circumstances, the legal basis for our processing may be your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You will know that this applies where your consent is collected clearly and separately from this Notice.

2. Communication          

Where you contact us through a provided contact form in the app, or through helpdesk contacts provided in the app, the purpose of the processing is to facilitate contact between you and us.
