Special provisions for further digital services (smart Schulthess platform and washMaster mobile app)

Requirements for use

For Schulthess Maschinen AG to be able to process payments from the user and provide value-added services, the user must enter the following master data when registering in the washMaster app or in the smart Schulthess environment: name, country and email address.

 

Paying with the washMaster app

If the user wants to initiate a payment via the washMaster app, a connection is established in the washMaster system between the user’s washMaster app and the relevant Schulthess business customer. Personal data is passed on to the Schulthess Maschinen AG business customer when a payment is made. Personal data includes:

  • information on the wash, such as time and price
  • wash price
  • wash time
  • the user’s name, registered address and email address
  • the user’s IBAN, if specified

Schulthess Maschinen AG does not pass on any personal data to the business customer involved and/or to third parties without the express consent of the user, unless the transfer is regulated in accordance with the section “Paying with the washMaster app”.

 

Collection and use of data for the improvement of the washMaster app

Schulthess Maschinen AG collects and uses data to support and improve the Smart Schulthess and washMaster system. On the one hand, this is data to which the washMaster app may have access depending on the user’s settings on the smartphone (geolocation, etc.) and, on the other hand, technical data and information generated when using the washMaster app or the smart Schulthess web app.

Schulthess Maschinen AG never passes on this personal data to business customers and/or third parties without the express consent of the user in the washMaster app, but uses it exclusively for the provision and improvement of its own service.

 

Google Firebase

Schulthess Maschinen AG uses the Google Firebase Software Development Kit (“SDK”) from Google Inc. (“Google”) to analyse user behaviour in the app with the aim of continuously optimising the washMaster app and tailoring it to the needs of users.

The information collected by the SDK on the use of the washMaster app, in particular

  1. analytics ID (random value by which Schulthess Maschinen AG can identify the user)
  2. client ID (random value that identifies the device used and enables Google to combine sent events into a device session but does not enable any conclusions to be drawn about the user’s device)
  3. the device’s parameters (brand, type, screen, memory)
  4. information on the platform (e.g. iOS and Android version)
  5. version of the installed washMaster app
  6. if applicable, the type and version of the internet browser used
  7. the IP address of the accessing computer (abridged so that an assignment to the specific user is no longer possible) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there. This data is analysed by Google to create reports on the use of the washMaster app and to provide other services associated with the use of the washMaster app.

    The user is aware that Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate the user’s IP address with any other data held by Google. The IP addresses are anonymised (shortened by three digits) so that an assignment to the user is not possible.

 

Microsoft App Center

Schulthess Maschinen AG uses the App Center Software Development Kit (SDK) from Microsoft Corporation (“Microsoft”) in the washMaster App to transmit crash reports with the aim of continuously improving the washMaster app. The information collected by the SDK on the crash of the washMaster app is transmitted to Microsoft servers in the USA and stored there.

This data is analysed by Microsoft to generate crash reports and to provide other services related to the analysis of washMaster app error messages.

The user is aware that Microsoft may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Microsoft’s behalf.

For detailed information on the type of data and how it is used, please see the Microsoft privacy policy at the following link: https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement

 

Involvement of third parties

The user expressly agrees that Schulthess Maschinen AG may involve third parties (e.g. payment service providers) in the provision of its services and that customer data may be passed on in this context where necessary. Schulthess Maschinen AG is obliged to carefully select, instruct and monitor service providers.

The third party may only use the data in accordance with this Privacy Policy on behalf of Schulthess Maschinen AG. Use of the data for the third party’s own purposes is prohibited.

 

Retention and erasure

The user’s personal data stored by Schulthess Maschinen AG will be deleted or anonymised if it is no longer required to perform the services.

If the washMaster app is not used for two years, Schulthess Maschinen AG assumes that the user has deleted the washMaster app on his/her smartphone, in which case the user’s personal data stored by Schulthess Maschinen AG will also be deleted or anonymised.

We reserve the right to make changes at any time to this Privacy Policy in order to ensure that it conforms with the latest legal stipulations.
