You can share the lists you created with friends and family at any time so you can better organise your shopping. The HNGRY app offers you a range of features such as the foods you buy the most frequently, the rhythm you consume them in and thus when you need to stock up on them again.

Our legitimate interest is:

Improvement of the stability, functionality and security of the app (applies to purposes 1 + 10)

If we process your data on the basis of a balance of interests, you have the right to object to the processing of your data under the provisions of Art. 21 GDPR.

We process your data only to the extent necessary for the fulfilment of the abovementioned purposes. 

IV. To whom and for what purposes do we transfer which categories of your data?

Where necessary, we will transfer your data:

V. Will your data be processed outside the European Union?

Data transfer to processors in countries outside the European Union (so-called third countries) is only permitted (1) if you have given us your consent or (2) if the European Commission has decided that an adequate level of protection exists in a third country (Art. 45 GDPR). If the Commission has not made such a decision, we may only transfer your data to third parties located in a third country in so far as appropriate safeguards exist (e.g. standard data protection clauses adopted by the Commission or the supervisory authority in a specific procedure) and the enforcement of your rights is ensured, or the transfer is permissible in individual cases due to other permitted circumstances (Article 49 GDPR).

VI. When do we erase or anonymise your data?

We process your data as long as is necessary for the relevant purpose, unless you have effectively objected to the processing of your data or have effectively revoked your consent.

As far as statutory retention obligations exist – e.g. in commercial law or tax law – we will have to save the relevant data for the duration of the retention obligation. After the expiry of the retention period, we check whether there is any further need for processing. If there is no such further necessity, your data will be erased.

VII. To what extent is automated individual decision-making used in individual cases?

We do not deploy any automated decision-making in establishing and conducting the business relationship pursuant to Art. 22 GDPR. Should we use these processes in individual cases, we will notify you separately, to the extent prescribed by law.

VIII. To what extent is your data used for profiling?

We process your app usage data using a partially automated process to enable comprehensive implementation of our app functions for you as well as to constantly improve and enhance our app based on your user behaviour. Certain personal aspects are evaluated in the course of this (profiling).

We remember your purchasing history to make your shopping suggestions as smart as possible. If you frequently buy a product, we use this history to calculate your average purchasing frequency and show you on the coloured bar whether you are likely to have some of the product left or whether you need to buy more. If you have not bought a product very frequently, we calculate the purchasing suggestions based on our empirical values. 

3 Data Security

We use technical and organisational security measures in order to secure your data against loss, incorrect modification and unauthorised access by third parties. Moreover, on our part, only authorised persons will ever have access to your data, and they can only access it to the extent required within the framework of the purposes named above.

4 Cookies

We use so-called cookies in order to recognise your preferences and achieve optimum app design. This makes navigation easier and ensures a high level of user-friendliness.

I. What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are stored on your device. They can be used to determine if there has already been communication between your device and our app. Only the cookie is identified on your device. Personal data can then be stored in cookies if you have given your consent for this or where this is technically essential, e.g. for a secure login.

Further information on cookies is available at

II. What do we use cookies for?

We use cookies

  • to ensure a secure Internet environment;
  • to check our app performance;
  • to evaluate the manner in which you use our app in order to improve our services. For example, we can detect when a process is too time-consuming and results in the user cancelling the process underway This knowledge enables the process steps to be simplified and made more customer-oriented;
  • to improve user-friendliness, traceability for our user customers and the online experience. 

We do not use your cookies in order to track your Internet activity outside the HNGRY app. 

III. What type of cookies do we use and what is their purpose?

a. Necessary cookies (session cookies)

Necessary cookies (known as session cookies) are erased when the app is closed. They record navigation on the HNGRY app as well as the length of the visit, and store the contents of your registration information for the duration of the visit to the HNGRY app.

b. Statistical cookies (persistent cookies or tracking code)

Statistical cookies (known as persistent cookies or tracking code) do not contain any personal data. They record where the app was accessed from, which link was clicked and which search term was selected, as well as the user’s location when accessing the app. They record the number of visits and the duration of the first, current and previous visit. These cookies only register visits to our app.

IV. Can I erase cookies that are stored on my device?

You can erase the cookies that are stored for the HNGRY app. In this case, however, your individual data and content, including your cookie settings, will be lost and you will not be recognised as a returning user the next time you visit the HNGRY app.

V. Do you consent to our use of cookies?

The user concept of our app includes some online features designed to make your visit as comfortable as possible. However, these only work with the help of cookies. Continued navigation in our app indicates your consent to the use of these cookies. You may revoke your consent at any time.

VI. How can I revoke my consent regarding cookies?

If you do not want us to recognise your device, you can prevent the storage of cookies on your device by selecting “Do not accept cookies” in your settings. Please refer to the instructions from your device manufacturer for more details.

Please note, however, that certain “essential” cookies are indispensable for unobstructed navigation in the HNGRY app and for selection and design. We only use these cookies to check the efficiency of the HNGRY app and record user frequency.

5 Use of Google technology

I. What is Google Analytics?

The HNGRY app uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 44-47 Barrow Street Dublin 4 D, Ireland, (hereinafter referred to as “Google” or “Google Analytics”). Google Analytics uses cookies that are stored on your device to analyse your use of the app. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the app is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymisation is activated in the HNGRY app, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus guarantees to comply with European data protection law.

On behalf of Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH, as the operator of the HNGRY app, Google will use the above information to evaluate your use of the HNGRY app, to compile reports on app activity and to provide Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH with other services related to app usage and Internet usage. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the deployment of Google Analytics is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other Google information. You can prevent the storage of cookies through the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of the app in full. 

You may also prevent Google from collecting the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie in relation to your use of the app, as well as from processing such data, with effect for the future, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link: Further information on how Google uses data as well as options regarding settings and opting out can be found in Google’s privacy policy:

II. What is Google Firebase Crashlytics?

We have integrated Google Firebase Crashlytics from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 44-47 Barrow Street Dublin 4 D, Ireland, (hereinafter referred to as “Google” or “Google Firebase Crashlytics”) into the HNGRY app to analyse and rectify errors. The purpose of this reporting is to ensure the stability and improvement of the app. To this end, information about the device used and the usage of the HNGRY App is collected (e.g. the time stamp when the app was launched and when the crash occurred) which enables us to diagnose and resolve issues. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the deployment of Google Analytics is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The data are stored in an anonymised form. These personal data are not merged with your other profile information. For the storage duration of data collected in this way, refer to the provider’s privacy policy. Further information on data protection with Google Firebase Crashlytics can be found at:
