The data and information provided to us by you helps us to determine suitable offers for you.

When you redeem a Trovr voucher in a participating store Trovr will record the details of this transaction including the store you visited, the type, the vouchers you redeemed, and the time of the redemption.

If you use the Trovr app, we will keep a record of all content viewed in the app such as coupons that have been viewed and activated, your notification settings, your participation in prize draws, viewed articles and competitions. We also collect information about your interaction with the app such as visited sections, the screens seen during each session, the number of clicks and scrolls. In addition, we process your customerID and we collect information on the operating system version used, the device identification, the system language and the chosen country as well as the app version that you are using. In certain circumstances, we only collect this information about your use of the Trovr app with your consent.

3.2.6 Login data

Your login data will be collected and used so that you are able to login automatically, so that you do not have to log in each time that you use the app. Your login data will be saved in the app until you log out of your account or the token expires.

3.2.7 Partner offers

Within the Trovr app, you can receive discounted offers from business partners from time to time. These offers contain a generic or individualised identification number (promotional code) assigned by the respective business partner, which you must provide to the business partner when redeeming the offer. The coupons are not an offer provided by us; the receipt and use of the offers is subject exclusively to the conditions and data protection information of the relevant business partner concerned. As such, the offers which we make available to you from our business partners may be amended and/or removed from time to time, for example if the relevant business partner is no longer able to provide the offer on its original terms in unavoidable circumstances. The business partners may inform us if you have redeemed the coupons, vouchers and promotional codes etc. The app or the “Partner offers” function of the Trovr Service may contain links to partner or other independent websites which are not provided by us. Such partner or independent sites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for and have not checked or approved their content.

Furthermore, we collect your user behaviour with regard to newsletters and other information which we may send you as push notifications or SMS, store it and, if possible, assign it to you, your e-mail address or your User ID. We also collect the time of opening the links and areas you clicked on, selected products, time, duration and frequency of use.

3.3 Data analysis

We will compile the data described in section 3.2 in our database. We evaluate the data with the aim of identifying information in which you may be interested, so that we can send you or display such information. We also use mathematical-statistical methods to determine possible product interests. For this purpose, your personal data is compared with the data of other Trovr Users. Based on this comparison, we can then determine which other products and promotions that other Trovr Users with similar interests might be interested in. However, Trovr is not able to guarantee that you only receive offers in which you are interested. Furthermore when you use the app, we create user segmentation profiles for purposes of statistical analysis and assign these, if possible, to your account. We do not process special category data which includes: personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin; personal data revealing political opinions; personal data revealing religious or philosophical beliefs; personal data revealing trade union membership; genetic data; biometric data (to identify); data concerning health; or data concerning a person’s sex life or sexual orientation. The categories of your personal data which we will take into account in the evaluation described in this section 3.3 are set out in the Privacy Notice.

4. General requirements for the use of the Trovr Service

To use the Trovr Service, a valid e-mail address is required.

In order to use the Trovr app, participants must download the software through the Apple App store or Google Play store.

You must have a device with a minimum operating system as specified on the applicable app store download page from time to time in order to use the Trovr app. Please check the minimum requirements on the applicable app store download page before downloading or updating the Trovr app.

However, Trovr endeavours to offer the software for as many different model types as possible. Due to the constantly changing product ranges on the market for mobile devices, Trovr is not able to offer an up-to-date list of all mobile phones with which the Trovr Service can be used.

The installation of the software and the use of the Trovr Service requires regular mobile data use from your mobile phone. The extent and frequency of data transmission depends on the type and extent of use of the Trovr Service. You must bear the connection costs and charges incurred for any mobile data use. The amount depends on the existing contract between you and your mobile phone provider.

The costs of setting up and maintaining an Internet connection and/or mobile data services are not part of the Trovr Service. Only your mobile phone service/Internet provider is responsible for this.

The use of the Trovr Service also requires sufficient battery power and screen brightness to scan the QR codes during the check-out process.

From time to time, Trovr may issue updates to the app to improve performance, enhance functionality, reflect changes to the operating system or address security issues. Updates will be made available through the App Store. Depending on the update, you may not be able to use the Trovr Service until you have downloaded the latest version of the app and accepted any new terms. You may not use the Trovr Service on manipulated or hacked devices (e.g. any jailbroken or rooted device).
