Data privacy statement of Cashinator App
and Cashinator website

Last update: 2021/08/08

I (Daniel Mikus) take the protection of your personal data very seriously. I ensure technically and organisationally that Cashinator complies with the data protection regulations. This document describes how I can use the information provided in the Cashinator app and the website (in the the following "Cashinator website").

Regarding: Cashinator app

Cashinator app authorizations for Android

Cashinator app requires the following authorizations:

  • INTERNET (Retrieve data from the Internet/Access to all networks):
    Required to synchronize between multiple devices with the database on a server for synchronization purposes.
  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE (Retrieve network connections):
    Is required to establish secure communication with my server.
  • CAMERA (Using the camera):
    Required to scan the barcode from another device to join its displayed trip. As of app version 3.3, it is also possible to add one or more photos (e.g. of receipts, invoices or restaurants) to an expense. These photos can be taken directly from the app.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE (Writing files):
    As soon as you request a PDF file for holiday evaluation, this PDF file is saved in the external storage area of your Smartphone. The user is actively asked for the appropriate right. As of app version 3.3, the storage area is also used to save expense photos.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE (Reading files):
    As soon as you request a PDF file for holiday evaluation, the PDF file saved in the previous step is read from the external memory area to be able to display it with a corresponding PDF viewer. As of app version 3.3, the storage area is also used to read expense photos.
  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION (Rough determination of the location):
    Cashinator can locate the current position, so you no longer need to manually enter the location of your expense. Cashinator uses the location services available in the device, which calculate the position of the device based on data from the provider and Wifi networks.
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION (Fine determination of the location):
    In addition to the rough determination of the location (see ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION), a more precise determination of the position is carried out by the GPS module of the device after the explicit permission of the user. See also "Use of location data in the app".
  • FLASHLIGHT (flashlight):
    Required to use the camera (see CAMERA).
  • WAKE_LOCK (Prevent falling asleep):
    When a barcode is displayed, the device does not dim the screen.
  • BILLING (In-App Purchases):
    If you would like to purchase more journeys/groups or support Cashinator with tips, you will need to access the In-App Purchase processing provided by Android/Apple.
    Cashinator does not store any payment types, credit card information or personal data related to them. All payments are processed exclusively by Apple and Android.
  • READ_CONTACTS / FIND_ACCOUNTS (Read and find contacts on your device):
    Cashinator never uses or reads contacts from your address book, even when you create members of your trips/groups. Even when this makes Cashinator unique, access to your contacts only happens and is necessary when you share a trip/group with someone (via email or social sharing features). Even if you share a trip/group with someone, that contact will not be stored or reused.

Cashinator app authorizations for iOS

Under iOS, you are explicitly asked to agree to certain rights, so that you can decide when specific functionalities are called. The complete list of permissions corresponds to the list under the point "Permissions of the Cashinator app for Android".

Storing usage data of the App

The data you enter in the app is used exclusively for the purpose of synchronization between several devices on a server. This data cannot be linked to your identity. I have no way of assigning this data to your person and do not share this data with others.

Links to websites within the app

The Cashinator app contains a link to the Cashinator website whose privacy policy statement is given in this document.

Use of location data in the app

In the Cashinator app, you have both the option to manually enter the location for an expense on your journey, as well as to automatically evaluate the GPS signal of the device. It can be selected individually which information of the determined location should be taken over. Information such as city, country, postal code, street and specific longitudes and latitudes are available. The GPS signal and location information are read and stored on Cashinator servers only after giving explicite permission.

Sensitive GPS information stored on the servers will not be shared with third parties, nor used for further analysis or tracking purposes outside the personal app instance. By consistently avoiding registration and logins within the Cashinator app the location information stored on the servers cannot be assigned to your identity.

Location data is only accessible to those people who have access to the associated journey or group. All stored location data can be viewed at any time in the app at any time, and can be manually changed and deleted. A historization of changed data does not take place and is also not intended.

If activated, GPS sensor data is read at the exact moment when the user initiates the entry of a new expense or when he presses the button to capture the current location. Cashinator never reads location data in the background without the user's knowledge.

Regarding: Cashinator app and Cashinator website

Disclosure of data to third parties

Data logged when using the Cashinator app or when entering the Cashinator website will only be transmitted to third parties if this is required by law, determined by a court order or if disclosure is necessary in the event of attacks on the Internet infrastructure of the Cashinator app for legal or criminal prosecution. They are not passed on for other non-commercial or commercial purposes.

Google Analytics

Both the Cashinator app and the Cashinator website use Google Analytics. Google Analytics collects statistics about page views or app errors in order to continuously improve the app.

The generated information about the use of the Cashinator app is transmitted to a Google server in the USA with an anonymous IP address and it is stored there. The IP anonymization feature in Analytics sets the last octet for IPv4 IP addresses and the last 80 bits in memory for IPv6 addresses to zero. As a result, the exact IP address of the user is not stored.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Cashinator app and the Cashinator website in order to compile corresponding reports for the operator (Daniel Mikus). Google may also transfer this information to third parties.

This usage data forms the basis for statistical, anonymous evaluations, so that trends can be identified that can be used to improve the offer accordingly.

Changes to the data protection declaration

In the course of the further development of the Cashinator app and the Cashinator website or new legal requirements, changes to this data protection declaration may become necessary. Daniel Mikus reserves the right to update these provisions at any time in compliance with the applicable data protection laws.

I will inform users within the app of any changes relevant to data protection.

Regarding: Cashinator website

Usage of cookies

Cookies are text files, usually consisting of letters and numbers, which are stored on your computer when you visit certain websites. In the course of the Google Analytics Plugin, the Cashinator website uses cookies in order to compile statistics on page accesses (see Google Analytics). The Cashinator website, on the other hand, does not generate own cookies. The operator Daniel Mikus does not have any possibilities to uniquely identify you.
