This collected data and information is evaluated statistically, on the one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to 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 provided by you.

VI. 2. Cookies

VI. 3. Webanalyse

1. Piano Analytics

As part of the operation of our website, we use the analysis tool "Piano Analytics" from the provider Piano Software Inc (111 S Independence Mall East, Suite 950, Philadelphia, PA 19106). The use of the "Piano Analytics" analysis tool enables us to collect and store usage information from users of our website in anonymised form using a measurement method. We use the "hybrid measurement" method of "Piano Analytics", which enables us to use both conventional tracking processes and non-personalised reach measurements. Accordingly, we would like to inform you about the processing of your personal data as follows;

1.1 Processing as part of the tracking function

The "Piano Analytics" service sets analysis cookies within your browser as part of the use of the tracking function. Cookies are small text files that are stored in your Internet browser or by the Internet browser on your computer system. When you visit our website, a cookie may be stored on your computer system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again. 

In this context and as part of the use of the "Piano Analytics" analysis tool, your personal data will be processed accordingly. In particular, the following of your personal data is affected by processing:

  • IP address
  • Browser information
  • operating system
  • Date and time of access
  • Data relating to interaction with our website

We base the use of the tracking function of "Piano Analytics" on the legal basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You naturally have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. The lawfulness of the processing of your personal data up to the time of revocation remains unaffected.

 
1.2 Carrying out reach measurements

As part of the use of Piano Analytics, we are also able to carry out reach measurements by means of a local log file analysis. Reach measurements involve the processing of non-personal data for the creation of summarised statistics. For this purpose, the data automatically transmitted by your browser to our server when you visit our website, which has no personal reference, is separated and processed. In contrast to the use of cookies, this data does not make it possible to recognise you personally. Accordingly, the individual data used for this purpose cannot be traced back to you as the data subject.
 
We would like to point out that we carry out the possibility of range measurement without further use of external third-party services. In addition, the non-personalised usage data collected is neither merged nor used to recognise the user or for other purposes.
 
The implementation of a reach measurement using such data, which is transmitted to our server by your browser when you access our website and stored on it, does not require consent due to the exemption regulation of § 25 para. 2 no. 2 German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (abbreviated in German to TTDSG). Accordingly, we base the processing that takes place as part of the implementation of reach measurement on the pursuit of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (optimisation of our website, generation of insights, creation of usage statistics).
 
We are aware of the transfer of your personal data to a third country (here: USA) associated with the use of "Piano Analytics" and the associated risks. In order to ensure the security and integrity of your personal data in the context of this transfer, we have concluded an order processing contract with Piano Analytics Inc. in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR,  including the modular standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. In the case of self-certification of the provider Piano Software Inc. under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, this applies in addition.
 
We only store your personal data for as long as it is required to fulfil the original purpose for which it was collected. If the original purpose of collection no longer applies, e.g. if you withdraw your consent, we will delete your personal data unless we are obliged to continue storing your personal data due to statutory retention periods imposed on us. The storage period for your personal data has a duration of 25 months. 
 
Further information regarding the handling of your data and data protection by Piano Software Inc. can be found here: https://piano.io/privacy-policy/   

VI. 4. Security measures used

We place the highest value on the security and confidentiality when processing your personal data. Therefore, we use among others the solution(s) listed below to meet the highest standards of data security.


Use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

Within the scope of our website, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to ensure confidential and encrypted transmission of your data. This makes it difficult or even impossible for third parties to read or manipulate your data during transmission. Thus, an SSL certificate is stored on our website, which the browser can identify as the intended source and subsequently decrypt. The use of such SSLs subsequently protects your personal data during a visit to our website and associated activities.

 Within our website we use the following SSL encryption:

  • DigiCert EV
  • DigiCert SSL
  • SSL by Default

The legal basis for data processing is UTA's legitimate interest in processing data for purposes of product and legal security as well as the prevention of fraudulent or abusive attacks according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The personal data shall remain stored for as long as it is required to achieve the purposes for which it was originally collected.

VII. 7.4 UTA SmartCockpit® App

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.

VII. 7.5 UTA SmartConnect App

UTA SmartConnect - Driver information

In the following, UTA informs you about how your driver data is processed when using the fleet management application UTA SmartConnect (https://www.telepasskmaster.com/).

Purpose(s) of Processing

Driver data

In order to offer the use of UTA SmartConnect to our customers, we enable our customers' fleet managers to create driver data for the purpose of fleet management and fleet administration. The fleet manager has the option of processing the following categories of personal data relating to you:

  • Name (first name, surname)
  • ID code
  • Fuel card information
  • idApp (to create access to the app)
  • SMS contact
  • Driving licence
  • Alternative means of communication (first and second alternative; e-mail or telephone)
  • Port authorisation number

Location, trip details and vehicle data

We process the data required by your fleet manager to fulfil his task in order to enable the use of our fleet management application. Such fleet management includes the following functions, for example:

  • Planning the most suitable route
  • Optimisation of fuel consumption and use of filling stations
  • Optimisation of the route to service points
  • Informing the driver about possible traffic jams, etc.
  • Resource management
  • Compliance monitoring

We process the following personal data for this purpose:

  • Routes planned for you
  • Vehicle used
  • Vehicle data (licence plate number, model, engine temperature, fuel level, consumption, etc.)
  • Distance travelled (daily, total)
  • Telemetry data (maximum speed, acceleration and braking, average speed)
  • GPS location data (current location)
  • Journey status data (time of vehicle movement, time of vehicle in "stop with key" status, time in "stop" status, total time travelled, as well as the period of the respective status (e.g. 10:00-10:15 "stop"), total journey time over a longer period of time
  • Video data, if applicable, via the autostrade // per italia camera system (this data is not saved, but used as a live feed)
  • Availability (holiday, illness or other activity)
  • Violations of driving and rest times, as well as other infringements, such as driving without documents or speeding

The processed details of the journeys are then displayed by SmartConnect in a star rating (between 1 and 5 stars). This allows the fleet manager to view the driving data and the efficiency of the last journeys made at a glance. The data can then be compared with the data of other drivers.

The processing of your rest periods and potential offences is carried out in order to monitor the legal provisions relating to your employment as a professional driver.

The remaining processing of the details of your journeys is carried out to enable the fleet manager to coordinate the fleet and plan current and upcoming journeys.

Entries (messages, notes)

As part of the application, it is possible for the fleet manager to send messages to you as the driver via the fleet function. We process the messages sent in this way, as well as the messages you send to the fleet manager, in order to enable you to use the contact function between the fleet manager and driver. In addition, the fleet manager can make notes in your driver profile. This content is also assigned to you as personal data. The categories of personal data processed about you in this way are determined by the content of the messages or notes.

Tax and Customs Electronic Services Portal (PUESC)

In the following, we inform you in detail about data processing in the context of using the "Tax and Customs Electronic Services Portal" (PUESC).

Processing by your employer on the SmartConnect platform

In accordance with the national legal framework of the EU member state Poland, the provision of legally required information to the Polish tax authorities (Warsaw, 00-916, 12 Świętokrzyska St.) is required for reasons of tax or customs verification in the context of the transit of goods subject to declaration within the territory of the Polish state. The required information and documents are transmitted to the Polish tax authorities using the so-called "Tax and Customs Electronic Services Portal (PUESC)" system.

In order to fulfil this legal obligation using the PUESC system, it is necessary to register your employer's vehicle fleet within the PUESC system. After registration, a so-called "PUESC ID" is sent to your company's fleet manager, which can be used to identify individual vehicles in the fleet. This PUESC ID can then be linked to a specific vehicle in the fleet by the fleet manager within SmartConnect, whereby the legally required information for each vehicle is automatically transmitted to the PUESC system when travelling on Polish territory. This information includes, in particular, the personal data listed in this section of this Privacy Policy:

  • Company data
  • Vehicle data
  • Order data
  • OBU ID
  • GPS location data (time stamp, speed, direction)

Processing by Polish state authorities

The personal data transmitted to the Polish tax authorities within the framework of the legal requirements using the PUESC system are processed by them for the purposes of tax and customs verification and evaluation. We expressly point out that UTA has no possibility of influencing the processing activities of the Polish tax authorities or other Polish state authorities and institutions. Nevertheless, we would like to inform you about the circumstances of the processing of your personal data by the relevant authorities.

As part of the fulfilment of legal requirements of the Polish state, there is an obligation to transmit relevant information, which may also include your personal data, to the Polish tax authorities using the PUESC system. In addition to the Polish tax authorities, the following Polish institutions may also be recipients of your personal data:

  • Public authorities
  • Public services
  • Courts
  • Public prosecutor's office

The processing of data transmitted in the course of using the PUESC system is carried out under the responsibility of the Head of the National Tax Administration (Warsaw, 00-916, 12 Świętokrzyska St.). A transfer of the personal data received by the respective recipient to EU third countries cannot be ruled out.

Note on data processing by YouTube

YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and offers other users the opportunity to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos, so that not only complete films and TV shows, but also music videos, trailers and amateur videos prepared by users can be accessed via the internet portal.

We have no influence on the type and scope of the data processed by Google, the way in which it is processed and used, or the transfer of this data to third parties.

For evaluation, Google may use analysis tools such as Google Analytics. We have no influence on the use of such tools by Google and have not been informed about such potential use. If tools of this type are used by Google for our YouTube channel, we have neither commissioned this nor supported it in any other way.   

We are also not provided with the data obtained during the analysis. In addition, we have no way to prevent or disable the use of such tools on our YouTube channel. Finally, Google also receives information when you view content, for example, even if you have not created an account. This so-called "log data" may be the IP address, browser type, operating system, information about the website you visited previously and the pages you viewed, your location, your mobile provider, the terminal device you use (including device ID and application ID), the search terms you used and cookie information. You have options to restrict the processing of your data in the general settings of your Google account. In addition to these tools, Google also offers privacy settings specific to YouTube.
