- Version number of hardware and software
- Drive unit (motor)
- Battery status
- eBike settings (e.g. support modes, language, time, time zone)
- Statistics (e.g. total mileage, charging cycles, ABS events …)
- Activity data (e.g., total trip time, completed and upcoming service intervals).
In addition to the general services, you have the option of using other free and paid services.
These are described below and depend on your selection. Depending on your selection, personal data will be processed accordingly when using the Services ("Service-related data"). Service-related data is processed for the purpose of providing the functionalities.
The legal basis for the processing of service-related data is the Contract, unless otherwise stated below.
When booking paid services (Flow+), the data for payment processing is collected and processed exclusively and directly by the App Store operators for devices with the Android and iOS operating systems.
220.127.116.11 Home Screen
The home screen gives you a quick overview of all the important information such as battery status, remaining range, distance travelled and the next service appointment. Your eBike model is also displayed on the Home Screen, provided that the relevant eBike manufacturer supports this feature. For the display of various information about your eBike on the home screen, the following device-related data, for example, is processed: eBike manufacturer, eBike model, battery status, eBike settings (e.g., support modes, language, time, time zone), statistics (e.g., total mileage, charging cycles) and activity data (e.g. total trip time, completed and upcoming service intervals).
18.104.22.168 Route planning, navigation and activity tracking
You can use our location-based services for calculating and displaying routes and for route guidance in the online offer and on the on-board computer. The trip duration of the route, if available, is calculated based on the riding behaviour of the preceding eBike rides.
In addition, every activity with your eBike is recorded and visualised in the app (activity tracking). We also record the frequency of use of Bosch eBikes on road and bicycle path networks and visualise the most frequently used path sections for you in maps in our navigation and activity tracking functions. The visualisation of popular path sections helps you find your way when riding. Furthermore, our online offer calculates the remaining range during navigation and displays it to you, i.e. you get an overview of how far you can get with the current engine support.
Besides planning in our app, you can additionally upload GPX (GPS Exchange Format) routes to the Flow app and use them afterwards.
The following data is processed when you use the services ("Service-related data"):
- Position data (e.g. GPS data)
- Start and destination address, search history
- Routes planned and/or completed
- Activities (e.g. cadence, speed, total trip time)
As part of the activity tracking, you have the option to allow the activity recording to run in the background. To do this, you must set the location access in the background to "always allow".
You can change the location sharing in the background at any time in the settings.
As part of activity tracking, you can delete individual recordings in the app. Deletion has no effect on route planning and navigation.
22.214.171.124 Dealer search
126.96.36.199 Flow+ Service: Making life more difficult for thieves
The ConnectModule allows you to locate your smart system eBike after is has been stolen, for example. This requires the eBike Lock and Alarm function to be activated.
When eBike Lock is activated, motor support is deactivated. You can also use the Alarm function to display the location of your eBike.
The following service-related data is processed:
- Component information (e.g. serial numbers, bike ID, part numbers)

18.104.22.168 Activating an already registered eBike for a new user account
To make full use of our services, your user account must be linked to an eBike. Each eBike can be assigned to just one user account at a time.
If your eBike is already assigned to another user account (e.g. if you have purchased your eBike privately because the previous owner has forgotten to remove the eBike from his user account after selling it), you will receive an error message when you try to link the eBike to your user account. The current link between your eBike and another user account must first be reset so that you can link the eBike with your own user account. For this purpose, you must contact the user currently linked to your eBike in order to have the eBike removed from the currently linked user account. If you find you are unable to contact the user currently linked to the eBike, you can initiate further steps via an eBike dealer.
2.3.4 Product improvement and development
We use user, diagnostic and usage data resulting from the use of Bosch eBike Systems products and services as well as our online offer to continuously improve our online offer, to develop new products and services and for market research.

In our online offer, we use Google Firebase, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland ("Firebase") to develop and enhance mobile applications. In doing so, Google processes data on our behalf. We use several features from Firebase in our app.
(a) Firebase Analytics
We use Firebase Analytics to continuously improve our app and develop new products and services. It analyses user interaction, i.e. how you use the app, which functions of the app you access, how often you open the app or when the app is uninstalled. This information helps us to further develop our platform and app and to adapt them to the needs of our users. The data is only processed in pseudonymised form and used for evaluations for statistical purposes and transmitted to Google. On our behalf, Google evaluates this usage analysis (e.g. in comparison to other apps) and provides results and further services based on this. The advertising ID of your device is used for evaluation by Google Inc. You have the option of restricting access to the device ID of your mobile device in the device settings. The legal basis for this processing is the legitimate interest. The legitimate interest of Bosch eBike Systems is to optimise its own products and thus to maintain or promote your satisfaction.

In the process, your device is assigned a pseudonymised device token ID, a unique connection number generated from the device ID, which we use to address the push messages or in-app messages to you. Google acts here as a service provider on our behalf. The legal basis for this processing is the Contract.
As a result of the settings we make, personal data (device ID) is processed and stored to the extent possible in the member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Google assures that personal data are processed within the EU or the EEA and Switzerland.
(d) Firebase Performance Monitoring
We use the Firebase Performance Monitoring service to detect app performance issues and fix them. For this purpose, information on the operation of important functions within the Flow app as well as its network behaviour is collected in order to be able to improve the quality and reliability of the Flow app and the infrastructure used. Here, the following information, for example, is processed: Device type (e.g. iOS, Android), operating system, mobile services provider, radio/network information (e.g. WiFi, LTE), country, language, signal strength, battery level and charging status, app version and network URLs. When monitoring HTTP network requests, URLs without URL parameters are used to create aggregated and anonymous URL patterns that are then stored and displayed. The legal basis for the processing is the legitimate interest. The legitimate interest of Bosch eBike Systems is to optimise its own products and services, to develop new products and services and thus to maintain or increase your satisfaction.
e) Firebase Remote Config
With the help of Firebase Remote Config, changes can be made to app settings configurations on apps already installed in end devices without having to completely re-download and re-install them from the app store for each change. The legal basis for the processing is legitimate interest. The legitimate interest of Bosch eBike Systems is to optimize its own products and services, to develop new products and services and thus to maintain or promote your satisfaction.

8.5.2 Right to revoke consent
If you have given us consent to process your data, you can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent made to us before the GDPR came into force, i.e. before 25 May 2018. To do so, please contact the addresses described above (point 1). In our portal, you can deactivate granted consents for certain processing operations yourself. The legality of the processing of your data until revocation remains unaffected by this. Please note that in the event of revocation of consent, certain services cannot be provided for technical reasons, as they necessarily require the processing of personal data. This does not apply to objections relating to the receipt of electronic advertising. We automatically delete the data when the purpose of the processing has ceased to exist or you have revoked your consent and there is no other legal basis for the data processing. If the latter applies, we delete the data after the other legal basis no longer applies.
8.6 Right of appeal to the supervisory authority
You have the right to file a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. For this purpose, you can contact the data protection supervisory authority responsible for your place of residence or your federal state or the data protection supervisory authority responsible for us. The data protection supervisory authority responsible for us is the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information Baden-Württemberg.
