(2) Data use by third-party software
The app uses the Unity Game Engine and the Vuforia AR platform as the app base for various functions.

For more information on the Unity Game Engine privacy policy, see:
and for Vuforia, See:

The tools provided in the Unity Game Engine for collection user behaviour information are disabled in the app.

Vuforia is used to scan and recognise the images/markers. This function is needed to position the augmented reality objects (3D models, images, video and audio content) on the device screen. The AR Reader does not use the „Cloud Recognition“ function. PTC inc. is responsible for the collection of data by the Vuforia AR platform.

We use videos from Vimeo in our app. As it is not possible to host the videos locally on our server or as local storage in the app would require too much memory, we use the services of Vimeo, a third-party provider. For technical reasons, the integration of Vimeo videos results in requests to the Vimeo server whereby data from your end device is transmitted to the Vimeo server. For the use of data from your browser or the device associated with the playing of a video, please refer to the provider’s data protection policy. Further details on data processing and information on data protection by Vimeo can be found at:

(3) Usage of the camera
Before using the AR App for the first time, you will be asked to grant the App access to the camera. When the camera is used, no data is collected or stored by us. Access is only provided to integrate the 3D models and other content such as videos or images into the environment in the context of augmented reality.

(4) Usage of the file system of the mobile device
Before first use, you may be asked to grant the app access to your device’s file system. Access is provided to the app’s folder and is restricted. The permission granted is read-only and is used to display 3D models, videos, images and similar content made available in the device as part of the installation process.

(6) External websites
On specific situations the app will access the device’s dedicated browser. After starting the browser, a stored website is displayed. The data protection provisions of the website called apply for the browser session.

§5 Data backup

We maintain up-to-date technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from threats during data transmission and from being accessed by third parties. These measures are kept up to date with the current state of the art.

§6 Cookies

BKO Online does not use cookies. When calling up external websites or content, the cookie guidelines of the website provider apply.

§7 Amendment to the privacy policy

We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration from time to time so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration e.g., when new functions are introduced.
