App permissions: To provide you with the functionalities of the app, the app must be able to access various functions and data of your mobile device. To do this, it is technically imperative that you grant the app selected access authorizations. Otherwise, the app cannot be used for technical reasons. Before using the app for the first time, we will explicitly inform you of the requested access rights. Usually the authorizations are as follows:
Location: This permission is required to determine your current location for location-based services. This permission allows your phone to access your GPS data, WLAN identifiers and/or Bluetooth, depending on which of them you have enabled, to locate your location.
Push notifications: Push notifications are messages (e.g.: WhatsApp) that are sent from the app to your device and are prioritized there. This app uses push notifications on delivery, provided the user has consented during the installation of the app or the first use. End user has to accept the enable notifications for the first-time installation. Also, the reception of push notifications can be deactivated at any time in the settings of the app.
Access smartphone contacts: This permission is required to show the caller's name when the user received a call notification.

The profile data is not linked to any further information about the user. Device information: In addition to protocol data, we may also collect information about the device on which the app is used. These include device type, operating system used, device settings, unique device identifiers and crash data. Whether some or all this information is collected depends on the type of device used and its settings. This allows error messages and system crashes to be analyzed to improve future operation.

Analytics reports help you understand users' behavior, which enables them to optimize app performance.
