Your data is safe.
Data protection officer:
We appreciate your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of traperto GmbH. Internet Pages of the traperto GmbH can be used without any indication of personal data. If you want to make use of special services provided by our company via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary.
If the processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person involved. The processing of personal data, such as name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of the data subject is always in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to traperto GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller responsible for processing, traperto GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, which is why absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data, which consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal analyze or predict that natural person’s preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts or relocation.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, as long as this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

5. Collection of general data and information
The website of the traperto GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The browser types and versions used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and the time of access to the website, an internet protocol address (IP address), the internet service provider of the accessing system and other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems can be collected.
When using these general data and information, the traperto GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. This information is rather needed to deliver the content of our website correctly, to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in case of a cyber attack. Therefore, the traperto GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, with the aim of ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
6. Contact option via the website
Due to legal regulations, the traperto GmbH website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
7. Routine Deletion and Blocking of Personal Data
The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period 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 controller is subject.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
traperto GmbH will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If traperto GmbH processes personal data in order to operate direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.

In connection with the use of information society services, the data subject is also free, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Legislator of Directives and Regulations not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which has legal effects on him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, if the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is permissible on the basis of Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation requires appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, traperto GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate safeguarding the interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to assert their right to revoke consent, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
9. Data protection in applications and in the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing can also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant application documents electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website, to the controller. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
10. Data protection regulations for the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controller 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 data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if our internet pages are accessed 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 analyze visitor flows on 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 that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically activated by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time our internet pages are visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, 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 data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in 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 data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
Further information and Google’s applicable data protection regulations 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/.
11. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and his or her name, age, health insurance data 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. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations 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 fundamental freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the European legislator considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
12. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
13. Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
14. Statutory or contractual requirements for providing the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject makes personal data available to us, which must then be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
15. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
