When we offer our business solutions ("Services") to our customers, we process personal data as a Processor on behalf of our customers, with whom TRAXGO enters into a processor agreement. We also impose the requirements that arise from this on our suppliers via a processing agreement.
We act as Data controller in respect of data that we process for our own purposes, for example in the areas of marketing, HR, legal affairs, statistics, administration and compliance (see below).
FOR WHAT PURPOSES AND ON WHAT BASIS DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We process personal data for the following processing purposes and on the following legal basis:

These third parties may only process your personal data on our behalf and with our express written consent and in accordance with the purposes outlined above. We guarantee that all third party processors are carefully selected and committed to safeguarding the security and integrity of your personal data.

We ensure that the selection of our subcontractors and any processing of personal data by them complies with the GDPR. TRAXGO uses the following categories of subcontractors for the provision of services: hosting or cloud service providers, suppliers of standard software solutions (such as Microsoft, Google).

HOW LONG DO WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
TRAXGO will retain your personal data for a period that is necessary for the performance of the agreement and as a function of the purposes of the processing, as described above. Because of this legal obligation, but also because of technical and financial aspects of data storage, we actively delete data where it is no longer needed. Retention periods are either provided for in the respective laws, data processing agreements, instructions from our data controllers or are set out by us in our internal policies. If the processing of your personal data is based on consent and you decide to withdraw your consent, we will not process your personal data for the specific purpose.
Your personal data will thus be retained as follows: for the duration of the services in accordance with the purposes described above (active retention period) and, as soon as there is no longer any contact, for a passive retention period of 5 years.
All retention periods in relation to the personal data we process for our customers are determined by our customers. We may retain such personal data only for the duration of our data processing agreement, after which we must return or delete all personal data relating to customer data subjects. However, we may delete personal data even earlier if the customer instructs us to do so, for example, if the customer no longer considers the storage of such data necessary for the specified purpose.
You have various rights with regard to the processing of your personal data. If we ask you for permission to process your data, you can withdraw your permission at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before the withdrawal.
