It is necessary for technical reasons that you grant the App certain access permissions. If you do not want to grant certain access permissions, you will not be able to use various functions and services in the App. The legal basis for processing your data is Article 6 Subs. 1 letter b GDPR.

Use of service providers/processing of data in countries outside the European Economic Area
I use service providers to render certain services and for processing your data. The service providers process the data solely as instructed by me and are bound to comply with the valid data protection legislation. All processors were carefully selected and receive access to your data only to the extent and for the period of time required for rendering the services. The servers of some service providers I use are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. Companies in those countries are governed by data protection legislation which in general does not protect personal data to the same degree as is the case in the member states of the European Union. In so far as your data are processed in a country which does not offer data protection to the acknowledged high level of the European Union, we ensure via contractual arrangements or other comparable instruments that your personal data are appropriately protected.
