Securing your data is our most important mission to keep your data safe. For the provision and development of our services, the privacy of your data is a top priority. For this reason, you can fully rely on the privacy and focus on what you are here for: Build connections with other students and add the right spice to your studi life. Thank you for your trust! Nice that you are here!
No compromise on your data. For the development of our services, experts from various fields such as product development and security industry work together to ensure that all decisions are made with your privacy in mind.
We use apps every day and the same thing every day: Privacy policies are written in a complicated way. We use simple language to make you aware of the topic and to educate you sufficiently.
Everything for the security of your data. We have teams that take care of the protection of your data, so that the security procedures are always up to date.
Short version: The short version is that your privacy is very important to CONNOU and we use your complete data only for the operation of the platform and to optimize our product. We therefore never share your sensitive data such as name, profile picture or email address with third parties for advertising purposes. However, CONNOU is partly ad-financed. In order to make the advertisements interesting for you, we or our advertising partners use your publicly disclosed age and gender, your rough location and information about your device or internet connection for the adapted display of advertisements. We only pass on this data in pseudonymous form. Pseudonym means that we do not pass on your data together with your (user) name or your e-mail address or comparable data, but only together with an advertiser ID. It is forbidden by contract and law for all advertising partners to link this data with your real name or comparable data in order to protect our users from misuse. All students who study at an educational institution that financially supports Connou will not receive any advertising content, unless this is agreed with the educational institution.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. · As far as we process special categories of data according to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO, Art. 9 (2) lit. a DSGVO - your consent - and Art. 9 (2) lit. e) DSGVO, if you have given information about your sexual orientation publicly (e.g. via your profile text or within a life video), serve as legal basis. · When processing personal data that is required for the fulfilment of the contractual relationship of Connou , Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. · In the case of processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. · If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of Connou or a third party such as its users, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. · If we store information in your terminal equipment or access such information that is already stored in your terminal equipment, Section 25 (1) TTDSG serves as the legal basis. · Insofar as the storage of information in your terminal equipment or access to information already stored in your terminal equipment is absolutely necessary, Section 25 (2) No. 2 TTDSG serves as the legal basis. · For further processing, Art. 6 (1) DSGVO applies in its relevant littera depending on the data processing constellation. · For the processing of personal data required for self-promotion (free use and subscriptions), the legal basis is not only Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO but also § 7 (3) UWG.
If the legal basis is your consent, you are entitled to revoke your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. If the legal basis is the legitimate interest, you are also generally entitled to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. In this respect, Art. 21 DSGVO applies.
Disclosure of data to third parties and service providers
In addition, personal data may be transferred to third parties, namely:
