Marc Gerken and Moritz Armbrust (us) built the Patavinus app as a free app. This SERVICE is provided by us at no cost and is intended for use as is.
Personally identifiable information
We want to inform you that whenever you use our Service, in a case of an error in the app we collect data and information called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing our Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics.
Cookies are files with a small amount of data that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. These are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device's internal memory.
Service Providers (Data Processors)
We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons
We want to inform users of this Service that these third parties have access to your Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose. We will only use Service Providers, which have a high data security standard and comply to GDPR.
Other Patavinus Users
As stated above, Patavinus chats are publicly accessible, in order for a finder to be able to contact you quickly. Therefore, we theoretically share the messages you write into Patavinus chats with anyone who accesses the chat.
In those chats, we do not share other information except the messages you write into it. Therefore, we strongly advice you to not share any personally identifiable information (phone number, address, name, etc.) into those chats. E.g. if you want to organize a handing over of the valuables, discuss a public location to meet at.
We value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

This Service do not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us via mail service(at)patavinus.com, so that we will be able to do necessary actions.
We are acting as Data Controller and therefore have the most responsibility when it comes to protecting your privacy and rights related to the use of Patavinus. We are controlling the procedures and purposes of data usage.
We may employ certain data processors (see paragraph "Service Providers (Data Processors)". In such relationships, we as data controller will dictate how the data is used and processed by the external service.
Data Storage Countries
We store all information on servers in Germany. We may employ Service Providers which store their information not in Germany and thereby it could result in data being stored internationally.
We store the information as long as the user is not demanding the deletion of it. Thereby, we are securing the purpose of the product, which is to connect owner and finder in case the owner lost a valuable.
