Privacy policy

of DiaMonTech AG for the application "Diamoki" and its website 

Status: 13.03.2023

The protection of your data and privacy is very important to us. We are aware that your personal data and especially your health data are sensitive. Health data is "special personal data" that is particularly worthy of protection. We process your data only to the extent necessary to provide the services you have requested.

1. Purpose and scope

This privacy policy is intended to inform users about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider.

The data protection declaration is valid for the application "Diamoki" and for the associated website. 

2. On what legal basis do we process personal data?

DiaMonTech AG, based in Berlin, processes your personal data in connection with the Diamoki app ("App") and the website www.diamoki.de ("Website"). 

We are the "controller" within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR").

Your health data that you enter in the App is considered sensitive personal data according to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) GDPR in conjunction with § 4 para. 2 no. 1 DiGAV processed on the basis of your consent. Consent is given explicitly and voluntarily during the registration process in the application.

We process your identification and contact data as well as data on the performance of the contract and communication with you on the basis of the performance of the contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR.

In addition, we process your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of our legal obligations pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR. We generally process your personal data to the extent required by relevant legal provisions in relation to our obligation to keep records and related tax obligations or in relation to the legal obligation to keep records.

With your optional consent for technical functionality, you can further consent that we may process the details and information provided by you when setting up the Diamoki App to permanently ensure the technical functionality, user-friendliness and further development of the Diamoki App. Data collected in this context is not necessary for the use of the app per se and has no connection with your health data. The collection of this data (e.g. for user statistics) is optional, but does not relate to system logs and operational metrics that are required for the usual maintenance of safe operation.

3. Why do we process your personal data?

We process your personal data to enable you to register with the application and use its features or the Diamoki website, and to enter into and subsequently perform a contract with you under which you may use the application (the "Contract").

Diamoki is a mobile application designed to assist you in the daily management of your diabetes mellitus or prediabetes (so-called self-management). It provides monitoring and analysis of diabetes-related parameters, which is intended to enable you to improve your self-management and make lifestyle changes to improve your health, reduce the burden of disease, prevent health complications and achieve positive clinical outcomes.

The purpose of processing your daily routine and health data is therefore to provide the app for its intended use as a digital health app.

4. What personal data do we process?

Your data is collected by you providing it to us. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems after your consent.

In this context, information is also transmitted to provide push messages and to monitor app performance. No health data is transmitted or disclosed.

We collect personal data in the first place from users of the Diamoki app or the Diamoki website. We ask you to only provide us with accurate data and, in the event of a change in personal data, to update it immediately.

We collect data in an automated form that is generated by the activity of the users.

We may collect some data (e.g. about the user's physical activity, blood glucose) from third party devices and applications; typically from mobile applications that collect activity data (Apple Health, Google Fit and others) and blood glucose meters. This data may be used on the condition that the user connects the relevant device to the application for this purpose and authorises data sharing for the purposes of the application under the conditions set out in this document.

7.2 Recipients of personal data

We do not share your data with third parties unless we are required to do so by law or you have given us your explicit and specific consent to do so.

Your consent also includes us sending data to certain third party providers for data processing that is required to provide our service under our TOS.

It also includes the forwarding of data in anonymised form to research institutions for the sole purpose of having our product clinically validated. Only with your explicit and additional specific consent do we also transfer your data to individual doctors or therapists, funding agencies or research institutions. 

The following processors may process your personal data on our behalf:

  • T-Systems International GmbH, Hahnstraße 43d, D-60528 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, data centre operator https://open-telekom-cloud.com/de/sicherheit/datenschutz-compliance

Unless otherwise stated, we do not transfer personal data outside the EU.

Personal data may be transferred to public authorities for the exercise of their powers.

8. How long do we store your data?

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the relevant data will be deleted as a matter of routine, provided they are no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the contract initiation.

9. How can you revoke the processing of your personal data?

You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data (health data) at any time via the corresponding button in the application (Hauptmenü  Einstellungen  Imprint, GTC and data protection) as well as via the email address support@diamoki.de. Your user profile will be deleted at this time. This has no effect on the lawfulness of the data processing that took place before the revocation. 

With the revocation, any remaining period of use that may have already been paid for expires without the possibility of crediting or reimbursement. The blocking cannot be reversed.

However, information about your health is essential for the proper functioning of the application. If you no longer consent to us processing data about your health for the above purpose, please note that you will no longer be able to use the application. 

Your data will be archived for a period of 3 years from the time of revocation in accordance with the statutory retention obligation. They will no longer be processed beyond archiving and can no longer be viewed. After this period, the data will be deleted.

Before revocation, you have the option of transferring your data. You can do this directly in the app (Hauptmenü  Impressum, AGBs and data protection) or by sending an e-mail to support@diamoki.de. 

If other legal, contractual or tax law or commercial law retention obligations or other legally anchored reasons contradict the revocation, only the continued blocking of your account can be carried out instead of the deletion.

You can revoke your consent to the use of the optional data (technical data) via the corresponding button in the application (Hauptmenü  Einstellungen  Imprint, GTCs and data protection) as well as via the e-mail address support@diamoki.de at any time without the use of DiGA being restricted for you.
