We hereby inform you about the processing of your personal data by PACE Telematics GmbH and the rights to which you are entitled under data protection law.

You can contact our data protection officer at the above-mentioned contact details or at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. For what purposes and on what legal basis is data processed?
We only process your personal data in compliance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu) and all other relevant laws if this is necessary to provide the information on this website and our services on this website.
When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not log in to use the website, register or otherwise provide us with information, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data transmitted by your browser to enable you to visit the website. These are:
- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access Status/HTTP Status Code
- The amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request comes
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software.
To ensure that the website functions properly, it is stored in log files. This data is also used to ensure the security of our information technology systems and to optimize our website.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR forms the legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files.
If the processing of personal data is based on the consent of the person concerned, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Data collection and data-use for contract processing and when opening a customer account:
We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide it to us in connection with your order, when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or email) or when opening a customer account. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data provided by you to process contracts and your enquiries. After complete processing of the contract or deletion of your customer account, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the storage periods under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this which is permitted by law. The deletion of your customer account is possible at any time and can be carried out via a function provided for this purpose in the customer account.
Data transfer for contract fulfilment:
For the fulfilment of the contract, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, as far as this is necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on which payment service provider you select in the order process, we pass on the payment data collected for the processing of payments to the credit institution commissioned with the payment and, if applicable, to payment service providers commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies in this respect.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing of personal data to fulfil contracts in which one of the contracting parties is the data subject. The same applies to the execution of pre-contractual measures that require processing procedures.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation for the fulfilment of which the processing of personal data is necessary, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR is the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 d GDPR is the legal basis in cases in which vital interests of affected persons or another natural person require the processing of personal data.
If personal data are processed in order to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject will no longer apply. Article 6 para.1 (f) GDPR is the legal basis for such processing.
Personal data may be passed on to our IT service providers for the provision of this website.
3. Data Security
We maintain current technical measures to guarantee data security, in particular to protect your personal data from the dangers of data transmission and before third parties become aware of them. These are adapted to the current state of the art in each case.
Furthermore, cookies are stored on your computer when using the website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in the browser you use and through which certain information flows to the site that sets the cookie (in this case us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective overall.
- Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.
- You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, refuse the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.
- The Flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. They store the necessary data independently of your browser and do not have an automatic expiry date. If you do not wish the Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or Adobe Flash killer cookie for Google Chrome.
- Analysis Cookies. We use analysis cookies to improve the content and quality of our website. These enable us to understand how our website is used. This enables us to continuously optimize our offer.
This stored information is stored separately from any data that may have been provided to us.
In particular, the data in the cookies are not linked to your other data. You can delete the currently stored cookies at any time. Deletion is also possible automatically.
With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The goods and services advertised are named in the declaration of consent.
We use the double opt-in procedure to subscribe to our newsletter. This means that we will send you a confirmation email to the specified email address, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm this within 24 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted. If you confirm your wish to receive the newsletter, we will store your email address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. The sole purpose of the storage is to send you the newsletter. Furthermore, we store your IP addresses and the times at registration and confirmation to prevent misuse of your personal data.
The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is the email address.
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email, by email to email@example.com or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint. Your data will only be passed on to the service provider for the purpose of sending the newsletter.
We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons, also known as tracking pixels. These are single-pixel image files that link to our website and thus enable us to evaluate your user behaviour. This is done by collecting the above data and web beacons that are assigned to your email address and linked to your own ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID. We record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on in them and deduce your personal interests. The information collected in this way is stored by the newsletter provider on its server in the USA. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each email or by informing us via contact channels mentioned in paragraph (4).
The consent of the user pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR forms the legal basis for processing the data after a newsletter registration by the user. As soon as the data are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected, the data will be deleted. In accordance with this, the data of newsletter subscribers are only stored for the duration of the subscription.
6. Contact Form
We collect your personal data when you provide it to us by filling out the contact form. The data provided will only be processed and used to provide you with the requested information. Any further processing and use of your data for advertising purposes or for market research will only take place with your express consent.
At the time of sending the message, data which your browser transmits to enable you to visit the website is stored as well as the data which can be seen from the respective input forms (https://www.pace.car/en/contact/new-inquiry).
In order to be able to process your data during the sending process, we ask for the user's consent and refer to this data protection declaration.
An alternatively provided email address can also be used to make contact, in the frame of which the personal data of the user sent together with the email is then stored by our company.
The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent. If the purpose of contacting us by email is to conclude a contract, the legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Our company processes the personal data from the input mask only for the purpose and to process the establishment of contact. This is also the legitimate interest that is necessary for processing if contact is made by email. The processing of further personal data during the transmission process is based on the prevention of possible misuse of the contact form, as well as the guarantee of the security of our information technology systems.
Once the data are no longer necessary for the original purpose for which they were collected, they will be deleted. Personal data collected from the input mask of the contact form on the website or sent to us by email are no longer required if communication with the user no longer takes place. This is the case if, when considering the facts, it becomes clear that this is also over for the future and no further communication takes place.
Additional personal data that we collect during the transmission process will be deleted within a period of seven days.
The revocation of his consent to the processing of his personal data is possible for the user at any time. When contacting us by email, the user can revoke his consent to the processing of his personal data at any time. However, further communication can then no longer take place, as all personal data stored in the frame of making contact will be deleted in this case.
7. Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to make full use of the functions of this website.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This shortens the processing of IP addresses and prevents direct personal contact. As far as the data collected about you is personal, it is immediately excluded, and the personal data is immediately deleted.
We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The legal basis for processing the personal data of users is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The processing of users' personal data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. We are in a position to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website by evaluating the data obtained. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, it is also in our legitimate interest to process the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. By anonymizing the IP address, users' interest in protecting their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes.
This website also uses Google Analytics for a device-independent analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My data", "Personal data".
For the sake of good order, please note that the PACE Store is hosted on Shopify Inc. Shopify provides its platform for the sale of our products. Your information is stored by the Shopify application and its databases. When you complete a transaction through Shopify, personal information required to complete the transaction is covered by the United States legal system. Shopify stores your data on a secure server protected by a firewall.
9. Trusted Shops
The Trusted Shops Trustbadge is integrated on this website to display our Trusted Shops seal of approval and any collected evaluations as well as to offer Trusted Shops products to buyers after an order.
This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in the optimal marketing of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, which predominate in the context of a balancing of interests. The Trustbadge and the services advertised with it are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Cologne.
When the trust badge is called, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains e.g. your IP address, date and time of the call, transferred data volume and the requesting provisions (access data) and documents the call. This access data is not evaluated and is automatically overwritten at the latest seven days after the end of your page visit.
Further personal data will only be transferred to Trusted Shops if you have agreed to this, decide to use Trusted Shops products after completing an order or have already registered for use. In this case the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.
10. Rating reminder by Trusted Shops
If you have given us your express consent to this during or after your order by activating an appropriate checkbox or by clicking a button provided for this purpose, we will send your email address to Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15c, 50823 Cologne (www.trustedshops.de) for reminding you of the possibility of submitting a review by email. This consent can be revoked at any time by sending a message directly to Trusted Shops. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para.1 S.1 lit.a DSGVO.
11. Userlike Chat
This website uses live chat software of Userlike UG (haftungsbeschränkt), Probsteigasse 44-46, 50670 Cologne. Userlike uses "cookies", which are text files stored on your computer, to enable personal conversation in the form of a real-time chat on the website with you.

Information on data protection of Userlike UG (limited liability) can be found here. Legal basis for the use of Userlike Chat is Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, in order to offer you an optimal service and functionality (https://www.userlike.com/de/terms#privacy-policy).
12. Use of social media plug-ins
We currently use the following social media plug-ins: facebook, Google+, Disquss and Twitter. We use the so-called 2-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of these plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider will be informed that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under 2 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection, according to the respective provider in Germany. By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the grey box in the security settings of your browser.
We have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores this data as user profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-oriented advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers as notified below. There you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy.
