4. Information in my.digitalSTROM
4.1. my.digitalSTROM is a system that, in order to work correctly, depends on information specifying details of the tasks a given application is intended to perform. In addition to the information in the user account, my.digitalSTROM, in different contexts, includes the following information about the user, information on local infrastructure where the digitalSTROM system is deployed, and possibly a user's intent:
- Information that You enter at my.digitalSTROM (e.g. configuration entries) (static/set by user)
- Dynamic information, e.g. information that tells us which functions You used and when (dynamic/as used)
- Information on the user or special services or Apps that You use at my.digitalSTROM (dynamic/as used)
- System-related information, e.g. error messages and other system events relating to the user (dynamic/when used)
In addition, my.digitalSTROM stores additional information, but the isolated manner in which we use it preserves the privacy of the user:
- Statistical information
- System data
4.2. my.digitalSTROM synchronizes this information with the dSS. The information is linked to Your user account.
4.3. Sections 4.4-4.15 list details relating to the use of data acquired while using my.digitalSTROM. In addition, Section 5 and Section 6 are relevant.
a) Configuration entries, additional configuration information
4.4. Via my.digitalSTROM, You can configure Your digitalSTROM system to meet Your needs by modifying pre-specified parameters. Configuration entries can map the existing room situation at the location, describe the existing electrical circuits at the location to include connected facilitates (hardware/devices) and map or describe predefined lighting modes, or similar, to maintain availability for repeated use. Configuration entries are saved within my.digitalSTROM in a configuration file. As the user You can determine whether to label rooms, modes, etc., with pseudonyms or names. You can maintain information about Yourself and the location to a minimum through the scarce use of names (e.g. the names of parents, children) when naming the rooms and similar areas. You can even avoid personal references altogether by setting impersonal configuration entries (e.g. "blue room" instead of "Room Hans").
4.5. As a supplement, additional configuration information is saved at my.digitalSTROM that You cannot edit on Your own (example: number of digitalSTROM terminals within Your digitalSTROM system). You can disable remote access so that this information is not saved on my.digitalSTROM, but then You have no remote access at all to my.digitalSTROM.
4.6. Configuration entries are static and remain unchanged at my.digitalSTROM as long as You do not edit or disable the corresponding entries (to the extent permitted in the system).
4.7. You can determine in the settings at my.digitalSTROM that Your local dSS configurations are saved on Your my.digitalSTROM user account.
b) Dynamic information
4.8. my.digitalSTROM permits You to control digitalSTROM terminals and the associated devices (hardware). This requires You to understand state-of-the-art digitalSTROM terminals or the associated devices or the interaction among various settings (digitalSTROM terminals/multiple devices) and then to act accordingly. Dynamic information plays a decisive role to this end. Examples of dynamic information include system states (data on the situation at a location, e.g. occupied/empty, panic mode active; Lighting switched on; commission device) or situations in rooms to which the total system can react (e.g. voice control).
4.9. No dynamic information occurs if You are not using a certain function.
c) Information on the use of special services or Apps
4.10. Static or dynamic information may also be collected as part of third-party services to the extent it is useful for applications by our partner companies. Separate terms and conditions and third-party or special services provide separate information on how to avoid such information at my.digitalSTROM and the extent to which the interaction with third-party information results in data processes relevant to You.
4.11. We are authorized to grant providers of third-party services, to the extent necessary and in fulfillment of the respective purpose, access to the information stored on Your my.digitalSTROM.
d) Error messages and other system events relating to the user
4.12. dSS is set for system events to be saved in a separate event file stored on the dSS. Certain systems may be able to query and use specific current states. We reserve the right to synchronize the entire Event Log with my.digitalSTROM to ensure an even better user experience.
4.13. We can collect usage data on Your dSS server for the purposes of improving service quality. No personal information on usage behavior may be used without Your expressed approval.
e) Statistical information
4.14. We collect statistical information on how You use my.digitalSTROM or the devices synchronized to it. This statistical information does not document personal data as saved by us. Nothing in the conditions at hand restrict us from analyzing and understanding statistical information, using it to improve our systems and services or to otherwise exploit this statistical information for our own purposes.
