1. INTRODUCTION Confidentiality policies of the Sprouty.app by developer Dmitrii Rumbeshta. Before we explain why, when, how, and what personal data the Application collects and processes, we will explain some basic concepts related to personal data protection. We believe that in this way you, as a user or non-user of the Application, can better understand why the Application processes selected data when processing personal data. Personal data Personal data is any information about an identified or identifiable individual (the data subject). An identifiable person is an individual who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to a specific identifier (name, number, network identifier) or to one or more specific elements of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of the individual. Subject of personal data This refers to the natural person to whom the personal data relates and who can be identified by the personal data or is identifiable. Special categories of personal data (sensitive personal data) This is a new designation for sensitive personal data. It refers to such personal data that in itself could harm the data subject in society, at work, at university or could lead to discrimination against him or her. Such personal data usually reflect racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, as well as the processing of genetic and biometric data in order to uniquely identify the individual and data about his or her health, sexual life or sexual orientation. By deciding to provide this information, the user consents to its processing. Administrator The Administrator is the person or entity that determines the purposes and means of processing personal data and is primarily responsible for its processing. Unless otherwise specified in these principles or conditions for a particular service, the administrator of personal data is the Application. Processor This refers to the natural or legal person who processes personal data for the Administrator based on their instructions. Processing of personal data Processing is any operation or set of operations that are performed on personal data or arrays of personal data, with or without the use of automatic procedures, such as collection, recording, systematization, structuring, storage, clarification or modification, search, review, use, access in transmission, distribution or any other grant of access, arrangement or combination, restriction, deletion or destruction. 
 2. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT? By using our App, you are entering into a legal agreement with us, and we are processing your data to provide the service in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Typically, the App only collects your email address. However, in some cases, we may collect additional information necessary for the provision of our services. 
 3. LEGAL BASIS. Under EU data protection laws, we are required to inform you of our legal basis for using your data. To the extent that we are provided with the consent of the person involved for the processing of personal data, the legal basis for processing is Consent. The legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the execution of an agreement, the provision of services, in which the User is one of the parties involved, is the Contractual Necessity. This also applies to processing operations that are required for the performance of pre-contractual activities. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a statutory obligation that the Application must comply with, the legal basis is Legitimate Interests. If there are vital interests of the User or another natural person that require the processing of personal data, the legal basis is the Legitimate Interest of the User. If the data processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person involved do not override the previously mentioned interests, the Legitimate Interests of the Application and the third party shall be the legal basis for the data processing.
