Your personal data will not be transferred or passed on to third parties in any circumstances other than those listed below. We will only disclose your personal data which we have collected to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR,
- it is legally permissible and is necessary for the processing of a contractual relationship with you in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR,
- in the event that a legal obligation exists for the transfer pursuant to Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR, or
- the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that there are overriding interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of their personal data.
§ 3 Activation and Provision of the Software
1. When purchasing a SyncMo license, you will receive a License Key number. This represents the key to use the Software according to the license terms.
2. To use the Software, you must activate it with the license key number. SyncMo expressly points out that the activation process requires an internet connection. The activation requires the transmission of a variety of information about your computer and the system environment in which the Software is to be operated. This information may also contain personal data, as described in detail below.
3. During the online activation process SyncMo will collect the following data for the verification and system-compatible activation of the license and then store it for the duration of the license: the registered license key number, the e-mail address you register, the date of the activation process, the SyncMo version used, a computer ID and IP address of the computer used.
4. In addition, SyncMo processes the aforementioned information for the purpose of verifying compliance with the license terms. SyncMo will periodically check the validity of your license by using online checks. This process takes place automatically, whereby the same information sent during the activation process is transmitted. If an online check shows that the license is invalid, SyncMo will exercise its rights in accordance with the applicable license terms. With regard to this data processing, SyncMo has an overriding legitimate interest in verifying compliance with the license conditions in order to prevent misuse and conduct in breach of contract. This data processing is therefore justified in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) EU-GDPR.
5. If you want to transfer the Software to a new computer, you must first deactivate the installation on the old computer in the case of a Single User License. In this process, the above mentioned data is transmitted again and processed for the aforementioned purposes. You can then start the activation process on your new hardware. The data will be stored for the duration of the contract.
§ 4 Website.
You can purchase SyncMo products via this website https://www.sync-mo.com . Data processing in connection with the website is carried out by SyncMo.
§ 5 Payment and Invoice

- First name

If you pay by credit card, your data will be transmitted to CCbill, which will carry out the corresponding payment and send you an invoice. This is based on Art. 6(1)(f) EU-GDPR, as we have an overriding legitimate interest in providing you with extended payment options through the integration of external providers. The data will not be transferred to third parties in other cases.
§ 6 Storage Periods
