The following Privacy Policy applies to the use of the mobile application Weiqht available from the iTunes App Store and the associated website (collectively, the "Offer").

This version is automatically translated from the German version. In case of any doubts consult the German original.

1. in brief

We attach great importance to data protection. The collection and processing of your personal data is carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (GDPR). We collect and process your personal data in order to be able to offer you the above-mentioned service. Here we inform you about the background of the data processing and your legal rights.

If you would like to read the articles of the GDPR yourself, you can find them at: There - more precisely in Art. 4 GDPR - you will also find the legal terms, such as "personal data" or their "processing".

When you visit our website, your usage behaviour can be statistically evaluated. The analysis of your usage behaviour is usually anonymous; the usage behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis. You will find detailed information as well as the possibilities to object to this in the following data protection declaration.

Essentially, personal data is only collected, processed and stored locally on your end device. Personal data will not be passed on to third parties. As a provider, we do not have access to your personal data at any time.
You will find any exceptions to this in this data protection declaration under 2.

By using our services, you consent to the collection, use and transfer of your data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

2. general use

2.1. access data

By visiting our website, the following information can be stored about the access:

  • IP address of the requesting terminal,
  • retrieved file,
  • the http response code,
  • the previous website from which you are visiting the offer (referrer URL),
  • Date, time and time zone of the server request,
  • Browser type and version,
  • the operating system used by the requesting terminal device,
  • Search term with which the offer was found, for example via Google.

This access / usage data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 Letter f DSGVO to provide the service, to ensure the technical operation and security of our information technology systems. In doing so, we pursue the interest of enabling and permanently maintaining the utilisation of our offer and its technical functionality. This data is automatically processed when you call up our offer. Without this provision you cannot use our offer. We do not use this data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your identity.

The automatically collected data are usually deleted after 7 days, unless we need them for the above-mentioned purposes exceptionally longer. In such a case we delete the data immediately after the purpose.

2.2 E-mail contact

When you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we store your details for processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We only store and use further personal data if you give your consent or if this is legally permissible without special consent.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

2.3 Services and contents of third parties

We use third-party plug-ins on our site to simplify their content and services, such as troubleshooting (collectively, the "Services"). Your data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 Letter f DSGVO) in the economic operation, optimisation (in particular user-friendliness) and analysis of the use of our services as well as the guarantee of the security of our technical systems.

The third party providers of this content generally obtain knowledge of your IP address, as they would not be able to transmit and display the content to your terminal device without the IP address.

2.3.1. Apple

All subscriptions are handled entirely by Apple.

The duration and price of each subscription are displayed in Weiqht at the time of purchase. Payment will be made after the purchase has been confirmed and charged to your iTunes account. Subscriptions are automatically renewed, unless the automatic renewal is switched off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period (subscription end). The account will be debited with the renewal costs within 24 hours before the end of the subscription period. The unused part of a free trial period expires as soon as a subscription is purchased. The prices shown include VAT.

*Subscriptions and automatic renewals can be managed or disabled in the iTunes account settings. *

2.3.2. Firebase

In our offer we use Google Firebase, a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Firebase"). As a result of the settings made by us, your personal data is processed and stored within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. However, we cannot exclude the possibility that Firebase may transfer your personal data to the United States. The USA is an insecure third country. However, Google Inc. has voluntarily certified itself under the US-EU Privacy Shield and is therefore committed to complying with EU data protection regulations.

Firebase Analytics uses methods that allow an analysis of the use of the respective app, in particular which functions of the app you access or how often you open the app. The data is only collected in anonymous form and is not linked to your other data stored at Google Inc. The data collected about the use of our app is transferred to Google Inc. and stored there. Google Inc. uses the advertising ID of your end device for this purpose. Google Inc. will use the data collected to evaluate the use of our apps and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the apps. You can restrict the use of the advertising ID in the device settings.

Further information on data protection can be found in the data protection conditions of Google Inc.

2.3.3. Google AdMob

We use AdMob, a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for the insertion of advertising in our offer. AdMob uses the Apple Advertising Identifier (hereafter Apple Ad-ID) for advertising tax purposes. A pseudonymous user profile is created under the Apple Ad-ID in order to display actual or supposedly interest-based advertising.

The Apple Ad-ID is a pseudonym that prevents the disclosure of personal data to AdMob. The Apple Ad-ID is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, Google Inc. has voluntarily certified itself under the US-EU Privacy Shield and is thus committed to complying with EU data protection regulations.

You can prevent the use of the Apple Ad-ID by clicking on "No Ad Tracking" in the system settings under "Privacy/Advertising". Alternatively, you can also click on "Reset Ad-ID" to generate a new randomly selected Apple Ad-ID and thus prevent the creation of a profile.

You can find further information on data protection in connection with Google at:

2.3.4. Social networks (Twitter, Facebook, ...)

Links to social networks, such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc., which may be integrated in our offer, are not integrated via a so-called social plugin. The integrated graphics and links only contain an HTTP link to profile pages. When calling up our offer, no direct connection to the servers of social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., is established. When using Twitter, Facebook etc., their data protection notices apply.

2.4 Legal basis and storage period

The legal basis for the data processing referred to in the preceding paragraphs is as follows

  • Protection of legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR)
    • Our interests in data processing are, in particular, ensuring the operation and security of the website, investigating the manner in which visitors use the website, and simplifying the use of the website.
  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR)
    • We will process certain data only on the basis of your prior express and voluntary consent. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Unless specifically stated, we will only store personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.

3. your rights as a person affected by the data processing

As a person affected by data processing, you have numerous rights. These are in detail:

  • Right to information (Art. 15 GDPR),
  • Right of rectification and cancellation (Art. 16 and Art. 17 GDPR),
  • Right to restrict processing (Art. 18 GDPR),

    • The data protection supervisory authority responsible for us is the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information in Baden-Württemberg (LfDI).

4. data security

We take technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons. These security measures are adapted to the current state of the art.

Your personal data transmitted in the context of the use of our offer will be transmitted securely by us through encryption. We use the encryption protocol Transport Layer Security (TLS), more commonly known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

5 Automated decision making

There is no automated decision-making on the basis of the personal data collected.

6. passing on data to third parties

In principle, we use your personal data only within our company.

If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), this personal data will only be received to the extent that the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service.

In the event that we outsource certain parts of the data processing ("order processing"), we contractually oblige order processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of the data protection laws and to guarantee the protection of the rights of the person concerned.

7. processing in other EU countries

Data shall not be transmitted to entities or persons outside the EU outside the cases referred to in point 2 of this declaration.

8. responsible body

Paul Steinhilber (Becherwaldstr. 2a, 79249 Merzhausen, Germany) is responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data within the meaning of the DSGVO. If you wish to object to the collection, processing or use of your data by us in accordance with these data protection provisions, either as a whole or for individual measures, you can send your objection to [email protected] or to the above-mentioned responsible body.

9. changes

From time to time we will update this privacy statement. We will also publish the amended version of the Privacy Policy here. If you visit our website again, you should therefore read the data protection declaration again. It is also possible that we may inform you about the amended data protection declaration by other means (e.g. within our offer).
