Notice:

When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address, your request, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your requests. We delete the data accruing in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.


1. Purpose(s) of processing


You can be sure: We process your data only for the purpose of fulfilling your requests, fulfilling and execution of the contracts concluded with us (including payment processing and, if applicable, credit assessment) and for our own marketing purposes. The processing always takes place in accordance with all data protection laws applicable to us.

 


2. Legal basis of processing
 

Insofar as we process your personal data on the basis of consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data to fulfil a contractual relationship with you, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of your personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which UTA is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to pursue a legitimate interest of UTA or a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

 


3. Storage duration
 

UTA will block or delete your personal data as soon as the purposes of the processing no longer apply. Storage may also take place if this is provided for by the European or national legislator in regulations, laws or other regulations to which we are subject as the Controller. Your personal data will also be blocked or erased in this case if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards ends, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.


If personal data is processed by you, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis us:

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

 

On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

 

To better integrate and manage Google Analytics on our site, we use the Google TAG Manager. According to Google, no cookies are used for this and no personal data is collected.

 

In addition, we use Google AdWords to promote our website.

On our website, we use "Facebook and Instagram Pixel" operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Meta”).

 

By using the pixel, Meta is able to identify visitors to our website as a target group for the placement of advertisements (so-called "Facebook Ads"). We use the pixel to display Facebook and/or Instagram ads placed by us only to those users who have shown an interest in our website or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Meta within the scope of the "Custom Audience" function of the pixel. With the use of pixels, we also want to ensure that our Facebook/Instagram ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. This gives us the opportunity to track the effectiveness of Facebook and/or Instagram ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook or Instagram ad (so-called "conversion").

 

The processing of data by Meta takes place within the framework of Meta's data policy. For general information about Meta products, please see Meta's Data Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

UTA hereby informs you about the use of your personal data which is provided to us in connection with the use of the UTA SmartCockpit® App.

 

In principle, it is also possible to use the app without providing personal data. If you want to use special functions of the app, the processing of personal data may be necessary.

 

 

Purpose(s) of processing

 

UTA collects and processes your data exclusively for specific purposes. These may also arise from technical necessities, contractual requirements or explicit user requests. For technical reasons, certain data must be collected and stored when using the App (e.g. push token, device platform and App version).

 

Within the scope of the App provided by UTA, UTA processes the personal data described below:

 

  • Geolocation data (location data of the device which we have linked to a vehicle according to your specifications).

    During the initiation of the app, you as the user decide whether to activate the functionality for processing geolocation data. This is deactivated by default.

    The data flow into the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application is dependent on

    - Activation of the function (geolocation) in the mobile device,
    - Activation of data transfer from the mobile device to the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application,
    - Assignment of the mobile device to the vehicle in the UTA SmartCockpit® App.

    In case of an inquiry, we collect your current location via GPS in order to provide you with quick information about your immediate surroundings (proximity search) and to offer you the possibility to plan routes from your current position. Data on your location will be used to process your request and will be transmitted to the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application. The transmission of your location data takes place via an encrypted connection using HTTPS. Your location data is used in the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application to enable the user of the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application to plan a route from the current position of a vehicle, as well as for subsequent analysis.
    Based on the geolocation data, UTA shall under no circumstances carry out profiling according to Art. 22 GDPR or measures to monitor the performance and behaviour of individual SmartCockpit® App users. If the GPS reception is disturbed, the positioning is automatically carried out via WLAN or radio masts. In this case, the geolocation may be less accurate. If the GPS function is deactivated, the last known position of the mobile device is displayed.
     
  • Activating the App

    Within the scope of activating the UTA SmartCockpit® App, it is necessary that the customer number and the telephone number of the App user are processed in the App in order to create a permanent connection between the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application and the associated App. This is necessary in order to be able to select vehicles, plan routes and receive planned routes from the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application when using the App. In addition, the so-called Driver ID is processed.
     

  • Using the push function towards the App

    When using the push function from the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application towards the App, it is also necessary to process Vehicle ID and Push Token. Note: The Push Token is an App-specific token that is automatically generated by Goolge Firebase.
     

  • Using the map functionality

    There is a difference between iOS and Android for the use of the map functionality. Android uses Google Maps, while iOS uses Apple Maps.
    Due to a used functionality (Layer) there is no transmission of geolocation data to Google, respectively iOS. UTA has the geolocation data processed within the scope of a regulated order processing.
    UTA has the geolocation data processed by Qivalon for display on the map within the scope of a regulated order processing.
    Prerequisite for the use of this function is an existing Internet connection via WLAN or mobile data. This may result in additional costs which are beyond the control of UTA.
     

  • Analysis data

    In order to continuously improve your user experience, we collect statistics on the use of the App. For this purpose we use the analysis tool Google Analytics Firebase. This enables us to ensure that our app is designed to meet your needs and is continuously optimized. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to record the use of our app statistically and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. All data is processed anonymously.
    In standard tracking the following data is analysed: Number of active users, number of application crashes, user interaction, information about the target group and app usage. In addition, an event-based tracking is carried out in which the number of app activations, registered vehicles, planned routes, started routes and accepted missions are stored and evaluated. In addition, the number of app starts, the status of the app (opened in the background or foreground) and the number of app deletions are recorded and evaluated in this event-based tracking. Furthermore, the tracking of changes in settings regarding the radius, price projection, ignoring of motorway filling stations and the display of traffic information including the respective set parameters are also included.  Within the app, you as a user can make settings accordingly. These can be found in Route Planning or under the menu item Settings.
     

  • Technical access authorisation to your Device

    For technical reasons access to the Internet is necessary. Access to the location of the device is also necessary for planning routes or radius searches from the current position of the vehicle. This is also one of the prerequisites for using the geolocation function, if desired and activated.
     

 

Legal basis of processing

 

Within the framework of the UTA SmartCockpit® App, UTA processes personal data purely for a specific purpose and based on a legal basis.

 

Location data shall be processed on the basis of the consent granted in the App in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The functionality can be switched off at any time with future effect by the App user under 'Settings'. The functionality is then terminated and no more location data is collected or transmitted to the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application. For the transmission of location data to the UTA SmartCockpit® Web Application it is essential that the mobile device accesses the Internet.

 

The processing of personal data within the scope of the use of the card functionality and technically required access authorisations is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and is exclusively for the purpose of providing contractually agreed services. The possibility of accessing the Internet is dependent on the provision of services. The availability of access to the Internet is beyond the control of UTA. Accordingly, UTA shall not assume any responsibility for the UTA SmartCockpit® App not functioning as agreed due to the lack of availability of or access to the Internet.

 

If UTA is subject to a legal obligation, which makes the processing of personal data necessary, the processing shall be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR.
