The Following Describes which information is stored by Sensible Mobi

Sensible Mobi additionally stores the device’s identification number (i.e. UDID or IMEI) that accesses the content as well as the standard technical information such as the operating system version and the device type to enable the user to access the content or service.
Sensible Mobi stores the email addresses of its users if they are submitted. The user can either submit their email address voluntarily via contact form through the websites or services of Sensible Mobi or submit it in the course of direct communication with Sensible Mobi.

Sensible Mobi does not share this information with third parties.
Other, voluntarily submitted information about the user:
Sensible Mobi always strives to improve its offerings and services as well as to adapt them to its users. Therefore the user can submit additional information to Sensible Mobi as part of the use of Sensible Mobi offers and services or in the course of direct communication with Sensible Mobi such as name, address, age, gender, interests and, if applicable, payment data (if the user processes a payment via Sensible Mobi). The user can also allow Sensible Mobi to record their usage behavior on partner websites.
Usage data of users of offers from publishers (publisher-user):
The publisher who works with Sensible Mobi shares information about publisher-user’s usage behavior with Sensible Mobi. Sensible Mobi needs the publisher-user’s data so that the user can receive benefits for offers from the publisher. In doing so, the publisher assigns each user a personal (“UserID”) connected with the usage data. The UserID can only be read out by the publisher. Sensible Mobi cannot directly associate the usage data shared by the publishers via the UserID with the user. The identity of the publisher-user can only be determined by Sensible Mobi if the publisher-user itself initiates such a request.
Therefore, the information transmitted to Sensible Mobi by the publishers is not related to one individual unless the publisher-user disclosed its identity thus waiving the protection of his private information (for instance accessing the publisher’s content with a user name connected to the real name or entering the email address on the publisher’s website). In this case, but not solely, Sensible Mobi is entitled to the above-mentioned rights to use the personal information.

If Sensible Mobi determines that a user or user-publisher violates its contractual obligations, for instance by using illicit scripts, Sensible Mobi explicitly reserves the right to bring the user’s or user-publisher’s data together with other data stored by Sensible Mobi on this person to prove the violation.
