Data Protection Statement

I. Preface

The protection of your personal data and respect for your privacy when processing personal data are important to us. We therefore process your personal data exclusively within the framework of the provisions of the applicable data protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (Act (EU) No. 2016/679 – GDPR) and the Data Protection Act. In the following document we will inform you about our company as well as the type, scope and purpose of the collection of data and their use.

II. Who we are

VEGA International Car-Transport and Logistic-Trading GmbH is responsible for data processing. You can reach us by post at: Schmiedingerstrasse 67, 5020 Salzburg, Austria or by e-mail at:
datenschutz@vegatrans.com.

III. Personal Data

Personal data are information which can be used to determine the identity of a person or which can be attributed to an identified person. These include, for example, name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. Information that cannot be directly associated with the real identity of a natural person, such as preferred websites or the number of users of a website, is not included.

IV. Collection, processing and storage of personal data

Personal data that we receive from you on your visits to our website (www.vegatrans.com), in the course of a request through the contact form, a price request and/or as a client, through details e.g. as part of a written, oral or electronic enquiry or when concluding a contract, are processed by us for the purpose of answering your inquiry, to work out a personalised offer for you, or to enable us to fulfil your orders to your utmost satisfaction. 

Personal data transmitted to us within the scope of an inquiry via the contact form on our website or by e-mail will be deleted after three months, unless they are required for a business relationship arising from the inquiry or there are other reasons for deletion (e.g. legal retention periods).

Personal data that you send us in the context of a price inquiry will be deleted after one year, unless they are required for a business relationship arising from the inquiry or there are other reasons for deletion.

The legal basis for processing personal data is the fulfilment of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures for processing the request (Art 6 Paragraph 1 letter b GDPR).

For price inquiries as well as inquiries via the contact form, it is possible that you agree to the collection, storage and processing of personal data for marketing purposes (sending of information by e-mail). This consent can be revoked at any time.

If personal data is collected in the context of participation in surveys, the explicit consent of the participant will be obtained before the collection, storage and possible passing on of the personal data. Title, first name, surname, title, e-mail address and position are collected. The personal data is used for evaluation and statistical purposes as well as for marketing purposes. Consent also includes consent to the transmission of information by e-mail. The consent can be revoked at any time. After a period of one year has elapsed, the personal data collected in surveys will be made anonymous. This means that the data has no relation to an identified or identifiable person and the creation of such a reference is also not possible.

Underage persons (aged under 18 years) should not send us any personal information without the express consent of a parent or legal guardian. We do not ask for personal details of minors; we neither collect these nor do we pass them on to third parties.

V. Use, transfer and deletion of personal data 

Insofar as no contractual relationship is entered into, no transfer of personal data will take place. If a contractual relationship is concluded, a transfer of personal data to service providers will take place only insofar as necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations, e.g. accounting. If a transfer of personal data to service providers is required for the fulfilment of a contract, these data are bound by the GDPR and its Privacy Policy.

Personal data required for a business relationship with our company will be deleted three years after termination of the last contractual relationship, unless there are no legal storage obligations or a justified interest in deletion to the contrary.

VI. Use of cookies

We use cookies on our internet page. These are small files containing data specific to the client, sent when you visit our website and stored on your hard drive. They help to identify user-specific settings and to implement special user functions. We do not collect personal data via cookies. All functions of the website can also be used without cookies, but some user-defined properties and settings will then not be available.

VII. Google Analytics

This website uses the "Google Analytics" service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for analysis of website usage by users. The service uses "cookies" - text files which are stored on your terminal. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of users within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area will be reduced. This reduction eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. As part of the contract data agreement concluded between the website operators and Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of the website and website activity and to provide services related to Internet use.

You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Here you will find further information on data use by Google Inc.: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

VIII. Disclosure, correction and deletion of personal data

Upon written request, we are always ready to give you information about your stored personal data. Please send your request either by post to: Vega International Car-Transport and Logistic-Trading GmbH, Schmiedingerstrasse 67, 5020 Salzburg, Austria, or by e-mail to: datenschutz@vegatrans.com.

If your processed data are incorrect, we would ask you to inform us; we will make immediate corrections and inform you of them.

Should you wish us no longer to process your data, we would ask you to let us know via the above-mentioned contacts. We will of course immediately delete your data and inform you of this. If there should be compelling legal reasons to prevent deletion, we will inform you immediately.

Furthermore, you have the right to limit processing and transfer of your data. Insofar as you are of the opinion that in the processing of your personal data, we are in contravention of national or European data protection laws, thus infringing your rights, we would ask you to contact us in writing, by post or e-mail, in order to clarify possible questions. You have of course the right to make a complaint to the data protection authority or to apply to the courts.
