Thank you for installing our app.
This app is brought to you free of charge by P3 insight GmbH, Am Kraftversorgungsturm 3, 52070 Aachen, Germany (“P3 insight”). Any use of the app is only allowed under these conditions.
Declaration of Consent to Data Processing
With using this app, we collect personal-related (pseudonymous) data. This is information that is not directly associated with the real-life identity of the user, for example, the type of internet connection, the measured velocity and location and measurements from connectivity tests, as well as system and usage parameters, and, provide those anonymized to our partners. In NO case do we collect content information such as messages or passwords.
Data Privacy – What we stand for
P3 insight are aware that you consider a particularly safe handling of all your personal data as extremely important. Therefore, we guarantee that all your data is processed by us in accordance with the provisions of the relevant EU legislation, as implemented in Germany.
What information is collected
This app collects personal-related (pseudonymous) data. This is information that is not directly associated with the real-life identity of the user (and which could not be used to identify them individually), for example, the type of internet connection, the measured velocity and location and measurements from connectivity tests, as well as system and usage parameters.
At the latest after six months, the pseudonym is automatically replaced by a new random number. Information collected will at NO time be associated with names, email addresses or phone numbers of users. In NO case do we collect content information such as messages or passwords.
In addition to the results of the tests run by the SDK other localization information and technical (system) parameters are obtained. Some technical parameters (such as wireless network information) are collected periodically, e.g. subject to GPS localization events.
As far as IP-addresses are concerned, those will be masked on collection within the app, by removing the last three digits; therefore, a correlation to a single user is no longer possible.
Specifically, the following data will be collected from the user’s device and analyzed:
Measurement results (active measurements “Connection Test”)
- Internet availability / success ratio
- Download time
- Latency (“ping”)
Measurement data collected through use of the device (passive measurements)
- Download speed
- Upload speed
- Dropped calls
- Wireless access technology
- Coverage / signal strength
System and usage parameters
- User ID (pseudonymous random number)
- Wireless network information (e. g. network operator, Cell ID, signal strength, SSID)
- Device information (e. g. model, operating system)
- Location information (e. g. longitude / latitude)
- Usage information (e. g. transferred amount of data, call logs)
- App usage (e. g. of all installed apps, their usage time, duration, volume and location)
- Time information (e. g. time stamps of the measurements)
- Other system information (e. g. battery status, memory usage, connected devices)
- Release information (e. g. app build, data formats)
The regular execution of the connection test and the collection of the passive measurements and system and usage information take place in the background. The connection test is regularly checking the availability of a data network connectivity to the internet and, thereby, it consumes less than 3MB in total per month.
Purpose of Data Collection
The data collected is used statistically, with the purposes of supporting the development and improvement of communication networks as well as usage-related analyses.
Transfer of Information
Personally identifiable data (like name, phone number or email address) are NOT collected and, therefore, can at no time be transferred to third parties. The collected pseudonymous data are only transferred in context of their analyses to our partner P3 insight.
Lawfulness of data processing is your consent according to Art. 6 (1) a) of GDPR.
