In order to improve the stability and reliability of our apps, we rely on anonymized crash reports. We use Firebase for this Crashlytics “, a service of Google Ireland Ltd., Google Building Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
In the event of a crash, anonymous information is transmitted to Google’s servers in the USA (state of the app at the time of the crash, installation UUID, crash trace, manufacturer and operating system of the cell phone, last log messages). This information does not contain any personal data. Crash reports will only be sent with your express consent. When using iOS apps, you can grant consent in the app’s settings or after a crash. For Android apps, when setting up the mobile device, you have the option of generally agreeing to the transmission of crash notifications to Google and app developers.

To do this, open the Settings app, select “Google” and then select “Usage & Diagnostics” in the three-dot menu at the top right. Here you can deactivate the sending of the corresponding data.
