The collection of this data is automatic as soon as you visit our platform.

  • Registration Information: When you register for Blinkist (for our free offer, paid subscription, or use of a code), we collect the personal information that you voluntarily provide to us when registering through your access device.

Of course, this can be contradicted at any time.

How we work with partners

In some cases, your data is also processed with the help of third-party providers of various online services (please refer to our privacy policy in detail further below). However, this is exclusively regulated by data processing agreements and the processing is instruction-bound, so that we always keep the responsibility for the processing.

Use of your data for other purposes

In addition to the purposes already mentioned, we are also subject to legal requirements. These are:

  • any request for information (and the related disclosure) to governmental authorities
  • any request for information (and the related disclosure) to copyright holders
