Data protection declaration for the “Lindera Mobility Analysis” app

    Information about the processing of your personal data when using our application

    The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which entered into force on May 25, 2018, obliges us to inform you comprehensively about the processing of your personal data. Among other things, we inform you in detail about your rights as a “data subject” whose personal data we process.

    Lindera Mobility Analysis is a software application for smartphones and tablets. 

    The app identifies the fall risk of seniors and supports caregivers in the implementation of fall prevention. 

    The application can be used by caregivers and by seniors* as well as their relatives. The effectiveness of our software is regularly examined in scientific studies.

    WHAT personal data is used?

    We process your personal data to the extent that it is necessary to perform the fall analysis.

    The personal data of our users is regularly processed only with the consent of the user. The data collected by Lindera Mobility Analysis App is in principle not passed on to third parties. The following data are necessary for the implementation of the mobility and fall analysis.

    The following categories of data are collected and stored:

    Personal data

    Data usedSenior ProfileHealthcare professional profile
    name (last name, first name)xx
    contact details (e-mail)xx
    profile picturexx
    date of birthx

    This data is not used for marketing or advertising purposes. This is solely for quality improvement and to improve our service quality.

    Health-related information (patient data)

    Meta/communication data (device IDs, IP addresses, location data)

    Furthermore, no app usage data is collected.

    HOW does the mobility analysis work?

    By entering your data, your fall risk is determined digitally. This means that you or your caregiver enters the data in the app. Then a video of you must be recorded with the cell phone camera. To do this, you have to walk 6 meters (3 meters each way). You can use your everyday walking aids to do this. The program then analyzes your gait. By answering the questionnaire, you will receive an evaluation of your risk of falling at the end. You will also receive suggestions on how to reduce your risk of falling. This should help you stay mobile.

    WHERE does the data come from?

    We process personal and health-related data that you provide to us about yourself or third parties as part of your registration and fall analysis. The data collected in relation to mobility and fall analysis have been determined and processed by means of the completed questionnaires and personal data. In principle, this data is not passed on to third parties. As our application is used by professional caregivers, they have access to the collected data and the analysis results.

    WHY and on what legal basis do we process your data?

    We process your personal data in particular in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) as well as all other relevant laws. Our mobile application is used to perform our fall analysis to promote effective prevention and health. In addition, the data is used pseudonymously for clinical studies. Data processing based on consent given by you (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). For the use of our app, you have given us, during registration, voluntary consent to the collection, processing or transmission of certain personal data. This consent forms the legal basis for the processing of this data.
    Upon initial registration, you also have the option to consent to participation in our effectiveness study. Participation is voluntary and can be revoked at any time. You will find further information on this study in the further course of this privacy policy.

    Data processing for the fulfillment of a contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO).

    We may base our data processing on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR if it is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship. Data processing is not only necessary for the performance of the contract if the contract could not be performed at all without the data processing; rather, it is sufficient if the data processing is objectively reasonable with regard to the purpose of the contract (VG Mainz, judgment of 20.2.2020 – 1 K 467/19.MZ, para. 30). Without personal data, we would not be able to assign your completed questionnaires to individuals, perform a gait analysis, and consequently provide our service (fall analysis). Therefore, the processing appears to be reasonable with regard to the purpose.

    WHERE is your data processed and stored?

    Your data is mainly processed automatically by our software. This requires that our internal IT department is granted access to the data.

    The companies (e.g. nursing homes) that use our app only have access to patient data in their own organisation.

    To provide our service, we use the Open Telekom Cloud and Hetzner Cloud Hosting, where your data is stored. Our app communicates exclusively with the instances that serve as a prerequisite for processing and performing mobility analyses.

    A transfer of data to third parties is hereby excluded in principle.

    The service providers mentioned above only provide servers and IT infrastructure and do not have access to the data themselves.

    WHERE is your data transferred to?

    The transmission and processing of your data takes place in Germany.

    Therefore, we do not use service providers located in third countries outside the European Union to process your data.

    HOW LONG will your data be stored?

    We store your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the service provision of the fall analysis. You can proactively request us to delete the data.

    If you delete your account with us via the app, the data will remain stored on our IT system for a further 30 days before being completely deleted. Access to the data is no longer possible in the app from the time of the deletion request.

    In this case, we will comply with your request as soon as possible. Otherwise, the data will remain archived for up to 10 years in accordance with statutory retention obligations (e.g. tax and commercial law retention and documentation obligations). After that, the data will be deleted.

    If you consent to participate in a study, your data may be aggregated pseudonymously and shared with the following scientific partners in this context: 

    Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
    Charitéplatz 1
    10117 Berlin

    Phone: +49 991 7660690

    HOW will your data be used in the study?

    At three-month intervals, a member of your care team will conduct the Lindera Mobility Analysis with you. Afterwards, you discuss the results together with your caregiver. In addition, at the beginning of the study, you fill out a questionnaire about your degree of care and other factors that may have an influence. The data is summarized pseudonymously in the study to check how effective the mobility analysis is.
    After the study, the results are anonymously forwarded in a report to funding agencies/clients. In this way, the results can be used for the future.
    Currently, various scientific studies on the effectiveness of the app in the setting of inpatient and outpatient geriatric care are underway. Participation in all scientific studies is voluntary. A separate consent and privacy policy applies to study participation, which provides information on how the data collected is analyzed. Our scientific studies run separately from the regular use of the app. Accordingly, with the regular use of the app, explicit consent is given not to share data for study purposes.

    We are currently implementing the following studies:
