If you have not concluded or do not want to conclude a contract with SMATRICS, you are not obligated to provide personal data; however, the consequence of not providing your personal data is that SMATRICS cannot provide the requested services.
The personal data that you entered on our websites is forwarded to only the following persons for the provision of services in accordance with our offers on our websites: IT service providers and web agencies. If our products are used for charging, SMATRICS as the party responsible in the sense of General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 ("GDPR") is entitled to process the personal data that was disclosed and obtained in the context of the business relationship and (especially from public SMATRICS charging stations and/or wall boxes and/or charging stations from partners of SMATRICS) for the purpose of performing this contract relating to the product for charging and to transmit this data – wholly or in part– in connection with the fulfilment of this contract to suppliers, IT service providers, customer service, banks, accountants, tax consultant, auditors and if necessary collection agencies, insurance companies and legal representatives.
This concerns full name, academic title, postal address, e-mail contact, telephone number, date of birth, billing data, account data, customer ID number, charging location, charging start, charging end, charging station used, roaming partner, ID of the device when using the SMATRICS APP, consumption data, vehicle charging capacity, registration number for the contract vehicle, make, commercial name and year of construction of the contract vehicle.

The roaming partners do not have any access to the personal data that is stored by SMATRICS as a result. The contract cannot be fulfilled in accordance with this paragraph if this data is not provided.
To pay by credit card, you have to enter your card number, expiry date and the CVC code for the credit card. SMATRICS is entitled to forward this data without storing it to its sales partners (currently Wirecard Central Eastern Europe GmbH). This partner checks the expiry date of the credit card and that the data entered was correct and processes the payment. Contracts with payment by credit card cannot be fulfilled in accordance with this paragraph if this data is not provided.
The personal data that you entered on our website is stored for the purpose of providing the service according to our offers on our websites for as long as this is necessary for fulfilling our reporting obligations and our obligations to furnish proof.

Furthermore, you have the right to appeal to the data protection authorities (Art 77 GDPR). To safeguard their rights from data protection law, each person concerned can turn to the SMATRICS contacts listed above in point 1.

The further processing of the data is discontinued immediately after receipt of the withdrawal by SMATRICS irrespective of existing statutory obligations. Withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of consent-based processing carried out up to the point of withdrawal.
Shariff is used on the website instead of social plug-ins. This means that the usage behaviour of social networks cannot be tracked provided the user does not click on the Share button.
Clicking on the Share button creates a link with the respective social network and information about the usage behaviour is forwarded, even if you do not have a profile for the respective social networks, or you are not currently signed in with your profile.
If you are signed in to one of the social networks, the provider can allocate your visit to our website to your profile on the respective social networks. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking on the "Like" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider of the social networks and stored there. Furthermore, the information is published in the social network on your account and your contacts are displayed there.
The following data, which your Internet browser transmits to us, is automatically recorded on our server and stored in what are called log files:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
- Website that you call up on our server
- The date and time when you accessed the website
- Your IP address
This data is stored separately from any personal data that you may have provided and so cannot be traced to an individual person. It is assessed on the basis of events for troubleshooting and for statistical purposes so that we can optimise our website, or so that we can obtain additional information in the event of specific indications of possible unlawful use. When they reach a certain size, these log files are automatically rotated and therefore overwritten.
Our website uses what are called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device with the help of the browser. They do not cause any damage. The following data is recorded:
- IP addresses
Your IP address is recorded but it is immediately anonymised by deleting the last 8 bits. This means that only a general localisation is possible. Our website uses what are called session cookies. These are cookies that are active only while you visit the website. Session cookies are therefore valid for a limited period of time and are deleted when you close the browser/tab. A token is saved on the server for a maximum of 30 minutes. Session cookies only store IP addresses.
Our website uses functions of the web analytics services Google Analytics, Lucky Orange and Hubspot.
Cookies are used here that enable analysis of the use of this website. The information that they create is transmitted to the provider’s server where it is stored.
You can prevent this by setting up your browser in such a way that it does not store any cookies. The IP addresses that are recorded based on the legal basis of "legitimate interest“ of SMATRICS in accordance with Art 6 Par. 1 lit f GDPR are anonymised by using a code line before they are stored on a server. In other words, the last 8 bits of the IP address are deleted and thus cannot be uniquely allocated to any person.
