The protection of your privacy rights when personal data is being processed is important to TRATON. Personal data collected when users visit our website is processed in accordance with the statutory provisions of the country in which the body responsible for processing the data has its legal domicile.
1. Collection of anonymous usage data
When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP address and the domain from which access is obtained, the date and time of the visit, the website that you visit with us and technical information on the visit (http method, http version, http status code, length of the transmitted data, browser used) as standard.
2. Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data will only be collected if you make said data available of your own accord, for example within the framework of registration, a survey or a sales promotion competition, or to implement a contract.
3. Earmarking of use and passing on of personal data
Your personal data will only be used for the purpose for which you have entrusted said data to us. Furthermore, no personal data will be passed on to third parties. Such data will only be passed on to government/state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory national legal provisions. Our employees have been bound by us to maintain secrecy and to protect personal data entrusted to us.
4. Right to withdraw consent
If you have consented to the use of your data for the receipt of company and product information in one of our applications, you can revoke your respective consent again at any time with future effect.
5. Right to information, right to correct
Upon request, TRATON will notify you in writing whether and which personal data pertaining to you is stored by us. If, in spite of our best endeavors to ensure the correctness and up-to-dateness of the data, incorrect information is stored, we will correct this information after receiving appropriate written instruction to do so.
TRATON uses technical and organizational security measures to protect your data so as to prevent accidental or deliberate tampering, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures, such as data encryption, are regularly improved in line with technological developments.
7. Links to websites of other providers
Our corporate website may contain links to websites of other providers. At the time the link was established, TRATON was satisfied that the directly linked pages were free of illegal content. However, TRATON has no influence whatsoever on the content of the linked pages and is unable to monitor these pages on a regular basis. TRATON therefore cannot be held liable for any content of the linked pages that has been changed since the creation of the link. This declaration concerning data protection does not apply to the linked websites of other providers.
In order to keep pace with the continuous development of the Internet, TRATON shall be entitled to adapt this declaration concerning data protection at any time whilst adhering to the provisions of legislation regarding data privacy protection.
10. Social plug-ins
So-called social plug-ins of social networks, such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest, are used in some areas of our website. The plug-ins can be identified by the logo of the respective social network.
As soon as you visit a website with an enabled social plug-in, your browser will establish, through the social plug-in, a direct connection to the servers of the social network in question and transmit data regarding your visit to the social network. Even if you are not a member of one of the social networks, there is a possibility that, through the social plug-in, said social network will find out certain data, such as your IP address, and perhaps save such data.
The social plug-ins on our website are therefore disabled by default. To use a social plug-in, you must enable it by clicking the corresponding button. As long as the social plug-in is not enabled, no data will be transmitted to the social network. After activation, the social plug-in connects to the servers of the social network, and will remain active until you disable it or delete your cookies (see “Cookies”). With the activation, a direct connection is established with the server of the social network in question. The content of the social plug-in is transmitted from the social network directly to your browser, which incorporates this into the website you visited. As such, we have no influence on the scope of the data collected by the social plug-in.
For more information regarding the purpose and scope of data collection along with the further processing and use of data by the respective social networks, your rights in this regard and the settings to protect your privacy, please refer to the social networks’ notices regarding data protection.
The following is a brief description of the social media plug-ins included on our site.
Twitter is a microblogging service of the U.S. company Twitter, Inc. (795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107). Through the Twitter button, your browser also establishes a direct connection to the Twitter servers and loads the button from there. Information is transmitted to Twitter that the corresponding website was accessed. Even if you are not logged in, Twitter can collect and store usage data as required. If you click on the Twitter buttons and tweet via the Twitter window that opens, you are submitting the information you tweet to Twitter. This information will be published in your Twitter user profile. For more information on data collection, analysis and processing of your data by Twitter, as well as your rights in this regard, please refer to http://twitter.com/privacy.
In order to avoid the risk of significant financial losses from fines, disgorgement and liability for damages, or criminal prosecution vis-a-vis TRATON Group or its employees, it is important that possible regulatory violations are identified at an early stage. Hints on potential regulatory violations can be reported via several channels within the TRATON Group.When you report a hint, we process your personal data, when we receive, assess and investigate your hint in accordance with this data protection information. Incoming hints are handled by a small group of expressly authorized and specially trained employees of TRATON SE’s Investigation Office (GOI) and are always treated confidentially. The TRATON Investigation Office checks the facts of the hint and, if necessary, conducts a further case-related investigation together with other investigation units or suitable bodies of the company concerned. Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed if you deliberately submit false information with the aim of discrediting a person (denunciation). Please read this privacy information carefully before submitting a hint. You can decide whether you want to submit an anonymous or non-anonymous hint.
