Data protection declaration

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Royal Traffics B.V.. The use of the Internet pages of the Royal Traffics B.V. is possible without any specification of personal data. However, if the person concerned wants to use special services provided by our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a person concerned, shall always be in line with the data protection regulation, and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Royal Traffics B.V.. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect and its use and process. Furthermore, persons concerned are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the person responsible for the processing, Royal Traffics B.V. has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most secure environment for the personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by phone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of the Royal Traffics B.V. is based on the terms used by the European Data Protection Supervisor when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

a) Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter " person concerned "). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

d) Limitation of processing

Limitation of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific person concerned without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Person responsible or person responsible for processing

The person responsible or person responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the person responsible or the specific criteria for his or her nomination may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible.

i) Recipient

A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

j) Third Party

Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the person concerned, the person responsible, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the person responsible or the processor.

k) Consent

4. Cookies

The internet pages of Royal Traffics B.V. use cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Royal Traffics B.V. can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the sense of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in an online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Royal Traffics B.V. collects a series of general data and information every time a person concerned or automated system visits the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Royal Traffics B.V. does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Royal Traffics B.V. analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data submitted by the person concerned.

6. Contact options via the website

Based on statutory provisions, the website of the Royal Traffics B.V. contains details that enable a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (email address). If the person concerned contacts the person responsible for the processing by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by the person concerned to the person responsible for the processing will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the person concerned. No disclosure of such personal data to third parties will take place.

7. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The person responsible for the processing shall process and store personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the person responsible for processing is subject.

If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

8. Rights of the data of the person concerned

a) Right to confirmation

Every person concerned has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain confirmation from the person responsible for processing as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the person responsible for processing.

b) Right of access

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain at any time from the person responsible for thr processing, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation has granted the person concerned access to the following information:

the purposes of processing
the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organisations, if possible the envisaged duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning him or her or to restriction of processing by the person responsible for processing or a right to object to such processing the existence of a right of appeal of a supervisory authority if the personal data are not collected from the person concerned: All available information about the origin of the data, the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the person concerned.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the right to be informed whether personal data has been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the person concerned also has the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person responsible for processing.

c) Right of rectification

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to request the immediate rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the person concerned has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, taking into account the purposes of the processing.

If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person responsible for processing.

(d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the person rersponsible for processing the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following grounds applies and insofar as the processing is no longer necessary:

  • The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
  • The person concerned withdraws his or her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Art. 9(2)(a) DS-GVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • The person concerned objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) DS-GVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the person concerned objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) DS-GVO.
  • The personal data have been processed unlawfully.

The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the person responsible for teh processing is subject.

The personal data has been collected in relation to information society services provided pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a person concerned wishes to arrange for the erasure of personal data stored by the Royal Traffics B.V., he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the person responsible for the processing. The data protection officer of the Royal Traffics B.V. or another employee shall arrange for the erasure request to be complied with immediately.

If the personal data has been made public by the Royal Traffics B.V., and our company as the person responsible for the processing is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Article 17 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation, the Royal Traffics B.V. shall implement suitable measures, including technical measures, to enable other persons responsible for processing to obtain the erasure of the personal data, shall implement reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, in order to inform other persons responsible for the processing, which process the published personal data that the person concerned has requested from those other persons responsible for the processing to erase all links to or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The Data Protection Officer of the Royal Traffics B.V. or another employee will arrange everything necessary in individual cases.

e) Right to restriction of processing

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain from the person responsible the restriction of processing where one of the following conditions is met:

The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the person concerned for a period enabling the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data.

The processing is unlawful, the person concerned objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.

The person responsible no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the person concerned needs it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

The person concerned objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the person responsible for the processing override those of the person concerned.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and the person concerned wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the Royal Traffics B.V., he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person responsible for the processing. The Data Protection Officer of the Royal Traffics B.V. or another employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data portability

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the person concerned to a person responsible for the processing, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. The person concerned also has the right to transmit such data to another person responsible for thr processing without hindrance from the person responsible to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the person responsible for the processing.

Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the person concerned has the right to obtain the direct transfer of personal data from one person responsible to another person rersponsible, where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the person concerned may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by Royal Traffics B.V. or another employee.

g) Right to object

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these regulations.

The Royal Traffics B.V. shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the Royal Traffics B.V. processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the person concerned shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the person concerned objects to the Royal Traffics B.V. to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Royal Traffics B.V. will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the person concerned has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the Royal Traffics B.V. for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the person responsible may directly contact the Data Protection Officer of the Royal Traffics B.V. or another employee. The person concerned is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the person concerned and the person responsible, or (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the person responsible is subject and that such law lays down appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the person concerned, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the person concerned.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the person responsible, or (2) it is made with the person concerned explicit consent, Royal Traffics B.V. shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the person concerned's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the person concerned's involvement on the part of the person responsible, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

If the person concerned wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person responsible for processing.

i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the person concerned wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person responsible for processing.

9. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The person responsible for the processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on the website from which a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The person responsible for the processing uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymised by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the person responsible for the processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission calculations.

By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned, is stored. Each time the person concerned visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of such data by Google and to prevent such processing. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on shares Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the information technology system of the person concerned is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the person concerned must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person within his or her sphere of control, it will be possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

10. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Google AdWords

The person responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in Google's search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google's search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed on topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertising on our website.

If a person concerned accesses our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored by Google on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website, provided the cookie has not yet expired. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person concerned who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated a turnover, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the person concerned could be identified.

By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, for example the internet pages visited by the person concerned, is stored. Each time a person visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

11. Legal basis of the data processing

Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular, because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).

12. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the person responsible or a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of the welfare of all our employees and our shareholders.

13. Duration for which personal data is stored

The criteria for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract.

14. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the person concerned to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information of the contractual partner).

Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a person concerned to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded.

Before the person concerned provides personal data, he or she must contact our data protection officer.
