Since transparency is our top priority and we don't want you to have to dig through incomprehensible privacy statements to find out what really happens with your data, you can find the answers to your questions here.

First things first: we never have access to your credentials at your custodian bank.

To connect your account with getquin, we work with API services.
API stands for Application Programming Interface and is a programming interface that allows us to transfer your data encrypted according to the need-to-know principle. In our case, this interface has read-only rights and can only read data, but not change it.
This API has already been used for years by numerous financial institutions and complies with current security guidelines.
These guidelines primarily contain components that are intended to provide more protection for the consumer, including our users.

For maximum security, all data is stored encrypted on servers and data centers in Europe.
Because your data is nobody's business - not even ours.

So what data do we collect? And why?

Via IT systems, we record, for example, which Internet browser you use or whether you use an iPhone or an Android phone.
But we also do not know who you are, i.e. to which user, for example, the cell phone belongs.
For us, this information is important to make our app better and to detect bugs faster.
And sometimes these errors depend on what operating system you have or what kind of phone you use.
Our goal is to provide you with a bug-free app and website.
