We are very pleased about your interest in our company. The management of TR Germany GmbH attaches great importance to data protection. It is possible to use the TR Germany GmbH website without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to use special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, for example, the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out by the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to TR Germany GmbH. Using this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about the rights to which they are entitled.
Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions may have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.
The data protection declaration of TR Germany GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. 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 is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). 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 one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed with or without the aid of automated means, concerning personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data to restrict their future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyse or predict aspects relating to the job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or change of location of that natural person.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or data controller
Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any 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 law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for by Union law or by the law of the Member States.
The processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent is any freely given, informed and unequivocal expression of the data subject’s will in a specific case, in the form of a statement or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

If the personal data has been made public by TR Germany GmbH and our company as the responsible party is obliged to delete the personal data by Art. 17 Paragraph 1 DS-GVO, TR Germany GmbH will take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data be deleted by these other data controllers unless the processing is necessary. The employee of TR Germany GmbH will make the necessary arrangements in individual cases.

If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at TR Deutschland GmbH, he or she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of TR Germany GmbH will arrange for the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data transferability

g) Right of objection
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out based on Art. 6 (1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In the event of an objection, TR Germany GmbH will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If TR Germany GmbH processes personal data to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to TR Germany GmbH processing for direct advertising, TR Germany GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

To exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of TR Germany GmbH or any other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, using automated procedures involving technical specifications.
h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly similarly affects him or her, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislators to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate safeguards of the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is taken with the explicit consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) is taken with the express consent of the data subject, TR Germany GmbH shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to put forward his point of view and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller.
i) Right to revoke a data protection consent
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
8. LEGAL BASIS OF THE PROCESSING
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for 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 data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example, to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or another third party. In this case, 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 above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (Recital 47 Sentence 2 DS-GVO).
9. LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN PROCESSING PURSUED BY THE DATA CONTROLLER OR A THIRD PARTY
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
10. DURATION FOR WHICH PERSONAL DATA IS SECURED
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.
11. LEGAL OR CONTRACTUAL PROVISIONS ON THE PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA; NECESSITY FOR THE CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT; OBLIGATION OF THE PERSONS CONCERNED TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF NOT PROVIDING THE DATA
We would like to inform you 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 person concerned provides us with personal data, which 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/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform 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.
12. EXISTENCE OF AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING
As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
