Terms & Privacy Policy

Parkingzones Vienna ("the app") is an iOS application that automatically determines if you need to buy a parking ticket, based on your current location.

This document includes Terms of Use as well as the Privacy Policy to disclose how and when the Parkingzones Vienna application collects and uses your information when you use the app. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Parkingzones Vienna is not affiliated with or does not own or control.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at support(@)parkenwien.at.

Information Processed

The processed data is used to operate and improve the app over time. We use the following information to provide app features and understand how users are engaging with the app:

Current Location

Your current location is only used locally on-device and only when you are using the app. Your current location is never transmitted outside the app. Sharing your location with the app is not mandatory and can be managed via the iOS system settings.

Parking Ticket Form

License plate numbers you enter into the parking ticket form are stored locally on-device, in order to subsequently pre-populate the form and provide a more convenient user experience. Any stored license plates can be deleted from the app at any time.

Contact & Support

Should you choose to contact us via the contact function in the app, an e-mail template will be created with information about your iOS device, the current app version, the last booked parking ticket, and a diagnostics file. This information is used to facilitate our support. If you do not want to provide this information, you can remove it from the e-mail before sending.

App Interaction

To improve the app over time, the Google Firebase Analytics SDK is used to collect non-personal usage data as well as screen views, taps and other interactions when using the app. We measure the usage frequency for specific app features to help prioritize development improvements. Since this data is only used for statistical analysis and the development of feature improvements, we do not combine it with other data or information. The app does not include the Apple AdSupport.framework and therefore does not collect the IDFA (Advertising Identifier). For Google’s Privacy Policy, visit https://google.com/policies/privacy/partners.

Handy Parken (optional)

With the Handy Parken service, the City of Vienna provides a publicly accessible SMS service for the purchase of parking tickets for the City of Vienna. To use the Handy Parken SMS service, a separate Handy Parken account is required. The app is not directly affiliated with Handy Parken.
The app optionally supports the purchase of parking tickets by generating a formatted text message for the Handy Parken SMS service. App users are able to check the contents of the generated text message and manually send it to the specified phone number of the Handy Parking SMS service. When the text message is sent, the information contained in the message is transmitted and may be further processed by Handy Parken. The app does neither control the amount of information that is collected nor how it is further used by Handy Parken during this process. For Handy Parken’s privacy policy, visit https://www.handyparken.at/meta/nutzungsbestimmungen-und-agb.

In-App Purchases (optional)

In-app purchases and subscriptions represent additional content you may buy within the Parkingzones Vienna app on your iOS device. You may purchase the offered services for a specific subscription period. The subscription will automatically renew at the end of that period. For information on how to cancel your subscription, visit https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202039.
Payments for in-app purchases are processed exclusively by Apple via your Apple-ID account and the means of payment stored within. The app never actively collects information such as your name, address, email or credit card number associated with the purchase. Information you provide when completing in-app purchases may be further processed by Apple. The app does neither control the amount of information that is collected nor how it is further used by Apple during this process. For Apple’s Privacy Policy, visit https://www.apple.com/privacy/privacy-policy.

You may optionally unlock the Parking Permit District subscription with an in-app purchase to unlock the following helpful additions:
