For optimal functionality, the app requires authorisation to use the location services of the end device. Authorisation is requested when the app is used for the first time. Location services can be used to find a current transport option in the area.
You are not obliged to grant this authorisation. If you do not agree to the authorisation, the functionality of the app will be impaired to the extent that you will have to enter your start address manually. You can revoke or allow the authorisation at any time in the settings of your end device.

Mandatory details are mobile phone number, surname and first name. Voluntary details after creating an account are e-mail address, payment details (credit card number, expiry date) and billing address.

You can find the terms of use for Google Maps at There you will also find a reference to Google's privacy policy: We use Google Maps to calculate the estimated charge for your journey and to interactively show you the distance to the vehicle carrying out your journey.

The identification of your person is excluded.


1.1.6 Location data

As long as authorisation was granted when the app was installed and not deactivated again, location data is collected and used to find and display transport options in the vicinity. Your location is not stored temporarily and is only used to find possible pick-up locations in the neighbourhood.

1.2 Use of Firebase

Our app uses Firebase, a service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). With the help of this tool, information is transmitted to us anonymously in the event of an app crash so that we can trace the cause of the respective crash and rectify it more quickly. Existing errors are analysed and identified and the quality of the app is ensured. Firebase is also used to measure the success of individual app functions. Firebase analyses the acceptance of the functions by the user.
The transmitted data is of a purely technical nature and has no personal context.
If you wish to receive the push notifications, you must explicitly consent to receiving the push notifications. You can revoke your consent at any time. You will be asked for your consent to receive push notifications during installation or the first time you use the app.
We use the services Firebase Cloud Messaging from Google (Android) and Apple Push Notifications (iOS) for push notifications. Firebase and Apple generate a calculated key that is made up of the app identifier and your device identifier. This key is stored on our push platform from your selected settings in order to provide you with the content according to your wishes. The Firebase or Apple servers cannot draw any conclusions about the requests of users or determine any other data related to a person. Firebase and Apple serve exclusively as transmitters.


Data storage/data deletion

In principle, we only store your data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected or if this is provided for by law, in the event of an objection there are no compelling reasons worthy of protection on the part of CeBus to the contrary or in the event of revocation there is no other legal basis for data processing. In certain cases, e.g. if there is a legal obligation to retain data, your personal data will not be deleted immediately, but will first be blocked.


Data transfer

The app platform is hosted by ioki GmbH, An der Welle 3, 60322 Frankfurt am Main, Germany. You can find ioki's privacy policy at Furthermore, we sometimes use external service providers to process your data (e.g. troubleshooting, creation of mailings, printing or shipping service providers, data centre services). This requires us to transfer your personal data to our external service providers for a specific purpose (limited to the respective purpose). Our service providers have been carefully selected by us and commissioned in writing. They are bound by our instructions and we have informed ourselves about their technical and organisational measures for the security of the processing of personal data. Furthermore, we require our service providers to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. We work with service providers from the EU. For this purpose, we have concluded order processing contracts with our external service providers within the EU or the European Economic Area in accordance with Article 28 (3) GDPR, insofar as this is necessary for the purpose of the contract.  
Your data will only be transmitted if you have given us your express consent to do so or on the basis of a legal regulation.
If necessary for our purposes, we may also transfer your data to recipients outside the EU in individual cases. If we transfer data to third countries, we ensure that the recipient has implemented an adequate level of data protection within the meaning of Art. 45 GDPR or suitable guarantees within the meaning of Art. 46 (2) and (3) GDPR and that no other interests worthy of protection speak against the transfer of data.
