III. General information on data processing
1. The scope of the processing of personal data
2. With whom do we share your personal information?
Within our group, all affiliated companies are obliged to sign up to our internal group data protection agreement, which ensures the level of data protection of the GDPR applicable in the European Union for all parties involved. As part of this agreement, each party appoints a data controller and informs the group management of their name and contact details. The group parent company Röhlig Logistics GmbH & Co. KG assumes the task of a central complaints office. In all cases, please contact the data protection officer of Röhlig Logistics GmbH & Co. KG mentioned in section I. If you have contacted another affiliated company of the Röhlig Group in order to exercise your rights as a data subject, in particular for information or correction and deletion of your personal data, the respective company is obliged to forward this request to the group parent company without delay and to provide all necessary information from its sphere of activity without delay.
We disclose your personal information to these parties and other third parties only as necessary to provide services you have requested or authorized, to protect your and our rights, property, or safety, or as required by applicable law, court order, or other governmental regulation, or when such disclosure is otherwise necessary to assist in a legal or criminal investigation or proceeding.
Please note that Röhlig Group companies, as well as government agencies, customers and suppliers to whom we may disclose your personal data, may be located outside your home country, possibly including in countries whose data protection laws may differ from those in the country where you are located. In such cases, we will ensure that appropriate measures are taken to protect your personal data by putting in place appropriate legal mechanisms, such as our internal Group data protection agreement and, in the case of commissioned data processing by third parties, the use of EU standard contractual clauses. A copy of the EU Standard Contractual Clauses can be found at:http://data.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj.
3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
4. Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
5. Access to your personal data by third parties
The collection, processing and use of personal data is carried out by ourselves and - insofar as we have not expressly excluded this - also by other companies of the Röhlig Group (group companies) or external service providers commissioned by us and contractually and legally obligated to data protection. In the latter two cases, we will ensure that group companies and external service providers comply with the relevant legal data protection regulations and the obligations arising from this data protection declaration. In this regard, we are guided by the legal requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, unless stricter legal requirements are applicable and must be observed with priority.
Furthermore, no third party has access to your personal data. We will not sell or otherwise exploit this data. We will only transmit data to competent bodies in response to official or legal requirements and in the event of statutory transmission obligations. This also applies in the case of a court order for transmission. In the event of an official, legal or judicial obligation to transfer data, we will examine in each individual case whether the transfer is in accordance with the principles of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and / or the applicable national law and, if necessary, take legal action.
We have taken technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against loss, alteration, theft or access by unauthorized third parties. Our IT systems are designed in such a way that Röhlig Logistics GmbH & Co. KG complies with the requirements of Art. 32 et seq. of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
7. Deletion and blocking
We will delete your personal data if the business purpose associated with the data has ceased to exist or the relevant statutory data protection rules require this. In the case of consent, we will delete your data after revocation or discontinuation of the purpose of consent.
At your request, we will block personal data in whole or in part, provided that this does not violate an overriding legal interest of Röhlig Logistics GmbH & Co KG in the processing. For this purpose, please inform us to what extent and for how long the blocking should take place. As far as technically possible, you can exclude the processing and use of your data for certain areas in this way.

- the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR and
- the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.
The right to data portability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
7. Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1) (e) or (f) GDPR.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:
- is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
- is authorised by legislation of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and that legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
- with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 (1) GDPR, unless Art. 9 (2) (a) or (g) applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms of, and the legitimate interests of, the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
X. Notification of data protection incidents
Data protection incidents can be reported at any time at email@example.com.
A data protection incident means a breach of security resulting in the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed by Röhlig or a third party contracted by Röhlig.
XI. Further data processing
As a matter of principle, we collect and process personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of our services and our activities. After the contractual obligations have been fulfilled, we process this data only after consent has been given. An exception applies in those cases in which it is not possible to obtain consent in advance for actual reasons or the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
In the case of consent, Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the case of processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR shall form the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for the processing.
The personal data will be stored until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for processing the data no longer applies (e.g., after a contract has been completely fulfilled). Mandatory legal provisions and retention periods remain unaffected.
Persons under the age of 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their legal guardians. According to Art. 8 GDPR, children up to 16 years of age may only declare such consents with the consent of their legal guardians. Personal data of minors will not be collected and processed by us unless we are required to do so by law. If we become aware that data has been transmitted to us outside of such a legal obligation without the consent of the parents or other legal guardians, we will delete this data immediately.
Röhlig reserves the right to amend this data protection declaration at any time and with effect for the future. It is therefore recommended that you read this data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
