Tscheck Privacy Policy

tscheck Privacy Policy

tscheck is a service (hereinafter "tscheck" or also "Service") provided by denkwerk GmbH.

tscheck interacts - as far as it is not used purely via the Slack app - via tscheck.ai with the OpenAI API and ChatGPT to provide its services.

At denkwerk, we prioritize the protection of privacy and the correct handling of personal data. Therefore, the service is designed in a way that tscheck - both when used with the Slack app, and when used via Tscheck.ai - only accesses such data that is necessary for the provision of the service. This also means that through your use of tscheck, no data is collected and processed which is used for other purposes of denkwerk GmbH, such as marketing. The same applies to the aforementioned partners Slack and OpenAI.

With this data protection information, we would like to inform you about the type, scope, and purpose of processing personal data when using tscheck.

A) Type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data at denkwerk

When you access tscheck.ai, your IP address is transmitted in order to use the service.
With your call to tscheck on Slack's app installation page, Slack will transmit your workspace-specific User ID to the service. The knowledge of this User-ID is necessary to establish the Slack channel for the contact between tscheck and you, as a user of the app.
In such cases, the processing is understood as the fulfillment of so-called contractual or pre-contractual relationships (Art. 6 para. (1) lit. b DSGVO) or serves the legitimate interest to answer your request (Art. 6 para. (1) lit. f DSGVO).

In addition, all other data, such as your messages in your chats and channels, are not visible to us.

B) Our Inclusion of Third-Party Providers

tscheck does not display advertising and does not pass on any data to advertisers or other providers with commercial interests. No data will be passed on to third parties for any other purpose than the functional provision of the service itself. To store the questions for tscheck-in and tscheck-out, we use Google Firebase. Additionally, no data is stored.

C) Legal Basis (e.g. Opposition, Cancellation)

The terms used in this data protection notice, such as "processing" or "controller," correspond to the definitions in Article 4 of the basic data protection regulation ("DPA"), which you can read, for example, on the website of the European Commission.
