We welcome you to Guru, our website at www.myguru.app. and/or our iOS and Android Mobile application (our “Platform”). In the below Privacy Policy, we inform you about the scope of the processing of your personal data. Guru proceeds with all data processing procedures (e.g., collection, processing, and transmission) in accordance with the Delaware Online Privacy and Protection Act (“DOPPA”) and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

General information on data processing

In the course of our business and platform operations, we process data, and this data is generally transferred to our Headquarters in Delaware, USA and stored at our privately leased "A2 hosting" server and we use Wix.com Ltd for the provision of our website. However, this also includes disclosure by transmission to third parties and to so-called third countries outside the USA and EEA.

All personal data that we obtain from you via the platform will only be processed for the purposes described in more detail below. This is done within the framework of the respective legal regulations mentioned or only with your consent. In particular, the DOPPA and GDPR specify when data processing is permitted. Guru collects personal data if:

  • you have given your consent,

  • the data is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract / pre-contractual measures,

  • the data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation or

  • the data is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company, provided that your interests are not overridden.

Guru processes and stores your personal data only for the period of time required to achieve the respective processing purpose or for as long as a legal retention period (in particular Delaware`s commercial and tax law) exists. Once the purpose has been achieved or the retention period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted.

Processing of Automatically Collected Data

We also collect data on every access to our website. The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

Log file information is stored for security reasons (e.g., for the clarification of abuse or fraud) for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is necessary for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until the respective incident is finally clarified. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest in providing an appealing website.

b) Use of cookies

We think it's important that you have full control over your privacy online and that's why we refrained from placing cookies that are non-essential such as functional and performance cookies. As set out in the EU`s Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (PECD), we don’t need to obtain consent when we don’t use them, and this is why we don’t need one of these annoying cookie pop ups.

Some of the Personal Data you provide may be considered “special” or “sensitive”. This includes Personal Data concerning for example your health, racial or ethnic origins, sexual orientation, and religious beliefs. By choosing to provide this data, you consent to our processing of that data.

You have choices about the Personal Data you upload and share. You don’t have to provide Personal Data; however, Personal Data helps you to get more from our Services. It’s your choice whether to include special category data and to make that special category data public. Please do not upload or add data that you would not want to be available.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal and special category data is the establishment and implementation of the user contract for the use of the service as well as your consent. We store the data until you delete your user account. Insofar as legal retention periods are to be observed, storage also takes place beyond the time of deletion of a user account.

You may withdraw your consent and request us to stop using and/or disclosing your personal and special category data by submitting your request to us in writing to admin@myguru.app.

You may give us your consent in a number of ways including by selecting a box on a form where we seek your permission to send you marketing information, or sometimes your consent is implied from your interactions or contractual relationship with us. Where your consent is implied, it is on the basis that you would have a reasonable expectation of receiving a marketing communication based on your interactions or contractual relationship with us.

Direct Marketing generally takes the form of e-mail but may also include other less traditional or emerging channels.

Insofar as statutory retention obligations must be observed, the storage period for certain data may be up to 7 years, irrespective of the processing purposes.

We do not sell data to third parties.

Authorisations and Access

The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest and the provision of contractual or pre-contractual measures. You can deny access on your device via the Settings/Notifications/ options of your device; however, this means that our APP may not function as intended.

Push messages

When you use the app, you will receive so-called push messages from us, even if you are not currently using the App. These are messages that we send you as part of the performance of the contract. You can adjust or stop receiving push messages at any time via the device settings of your device.

Transfer of personal data

We will not disclose or otherwise distribute your personal data to third parties unless this:

  • is necessary for the performance of our services,

  • you have consented to the disclosure,

  • or the disclosure of data is permitted by relevant legal provisions.

External service providers support us, for example, in the technical operation and support of the platform, data management, the provision and performance of services, marketing, as well as the implementation and fulfillment of reporting obligations.

The service providers commissioned by us however will process your data exclusively in accordance with our instructions and we remain in accordance with the DOPPA and the GDPR responsible for the protection of your data. Doing so we always make sure that service providers commissioned by us are carefully selected, follow strict contractual regulations, technical and organizational measures, and additional controls by us.

We may also disclose Personal Data to third parties if we are legally obliged to do so e.g., by court order or if this is necessary to support criminal or legal investigations or other legal investigations or proceedings at home or abroad or to fulfill our legitimate interests.
