Data privacy statement

Privacy Policy

The protection of your data is of special concern to us. TRAUSSNIG Spedition GmbH, as website operator, therefore always processes your personal data confidentially and exclusively on the basis of the legal provisions (GDPR, General Data Protection Act and Telecommunications Act).

As the Controller, we have implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure the highest possible protection of the personal data processed by us. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Contact with us

If you contact us through the form on the website or by e-mail, your personal data will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this personal data without your consent.

Earmarking, legal basis, storage period and data recipient

We need the collected personal data to process the inquiry, fulfilment of the contract, billing, assertion of contractual claims, for customer service purposes and for information purposes. The data is collected, stored, processed and used for this purpose. 

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is, on the one hand, contract fulfilment, legitimate interests, the fulfilment of our legal or contractual obligations and, on the other hand, your consent. Minors under the age of 14 years cannot validly consent to the processing of their data, and the consent of their legal guardians is required. If we become aware that we have received personal data concerning a child under the age of 14 years, we will immediately cease to process it.

We process your personal data, if necessary, for the duration of the entire business relationship or longer in accordance with the legal storage and documentation obligations, and until the end of any legal dispute.

We make use of third parties to fulfil the contract. The data of our customers and suppliers can therefore be passed on to various processors (e.g. freight forwarders, carriers, authorities). In the course of passing on orders, personal data is transferred to processors, who in turn can forward the orders and thus your data to sub-processors. The data transmission takes place exclusively for the fulfilment and on the basis of the rights and obligations arising from the contractual agreement, as well as with our explicit agreement. Shipment data can be communicated to the authorities of the transit or destination country for customs clearance, tax release or security checks if required. The legislation of the respective country is taken into account. Information usually includes: sender's name and address, recipient's name and address, description of goods, number of parts, weight and value of the shipment.

The processors have undertaken to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. Agreements have been made to this effect.

Access data

Furthermore, as a user of this website you will be informed about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator Traussnig Spedition GmbH.

We or the site provider collects data about visits to the web site and stores them as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:

  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/Reference from which you came to the page
  • Browser used

Google Tag Manager

We also use Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager solely sets up tags. Tags are codes that are used to measure the number of visitors and visitor behaviour.

If the collection of your website usage data for our website has been deactivated, this will also apply to all tags that are managed with Google Tag Manager.

Google reCaptcha

We use the service reCaptcha, which is provided by Google Inc.

The legal basis for the described data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in this data processing in order to ensure the security of our website and protect us against automated entries (attacks). The data protection regulations of Google apply to these data. Further information on the Google privacy policies can be found at:

Data processing in connection with the application process

If you choose to apply for a job with us, we will need to collect some information about you. We will process personal data which you provide to us about yourself in order to conduct the application process, including the selection of applicants.

We will do this on the following legal basis: the processing is necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract (handling an application before potentially entering into an employment contract) in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, and for the protection of our legitimate interests beyond the aforementioned legal basis (deciding how we should best allocate our human resources and/or which staff to employ, as well as for the establishment, awareness and defence of legal claims) in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, as well as on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR.

The office responsible for handling your application is the one to which you apply:

  • TRAUSSNIG Spedition GmbH, Auenfischerstrasse 44, 9400 Wolfsberg, Austria
  • TRAUSSNIG Spedition Wien GmbH, Kasernstrasse 5, 2301 Gross Enzersdorf, Austria
  • TRAUSSNIG Kft, Fuvar utca 6, 8900 Zalaegerszeg, Hungary
  • TRAUSSNIG d.o.o., Letaliska cesta 33M, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia
  • TRAUSSNIG d.o.o., Zelena aleja 45, 10410 Velika Gorica, Croatia

We will collect your data in connection with the application process, either when you provide it to us (e.g. by sending your application documents via the careers platform on our website or by email) or when we collect it ourselves (e.g. by taking notes during an interview).

You are not obliged to provide personal data concerning yourself in connection with the application process. However, we will not be able to handle your application if you do not provide this data to us.

We are looking for the best future employees, regardless of their sex, race, ethnic origin, religion, ideology, disability, age or sexual identity. We do not require you to provide any personal data which is not usable under the Austrian General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) or any other national or international anti-discrimination law. If you nevertheless provide any sensitive data of this type to us, you will be deemed to have expressly consented to its processing for purposes of the application process.

In accordance with Article 22 of the GDPR, we do not use any automated decision-making in connection with the application process, nor do we intend to make any other use of the data.

If you apply for a position via the career platform on our website, your application will be directed to the location which you have selected. If you send your application to the wrong location, and we become aware of the error, we will forward it to the correct location. During the application process, we will disclose your data to those internal parties (human resources, managers of the department and senior management) who are responsible for recruiting the relevant person.

We will not transfer your data to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to or you have given express prior consent to the transfer. We do not intend to transfer your data to any third countries (i.e. countries outside the EU or the EEA).

We will retain your personal data only for so long as it is needed in order to achieve the purposes specified in this policy (i.e.  conducting the application process, including the selection of applicants). If your application is rejected, we will erase your data after six months, provided that the erasure does not conflict with any other legitimate interests which we may have. An example of a legitimate interest would be to discharge the burden of proof in proceedings under the anti-discrimination law applying in the jurisdiction of our relevant place of business.

If you are not selected, but we consider that you could be suitable for a future position in the company, we will retain your data for one year after you have been rejected for the relevant position and then erase it, provided that you have consented to this extended retention period. If you wish to withdraw your consent, simply send an email stating this to the contact person mentioned below. We reserve the right to erase your data at any earlier time without consulting you and for any reasons.

If your application is successful, we will keep the data we have collected about you in connection with the application process in your personnel file and will retain it for so long as we are required to by law or until any legal claims are time-barred.

Your rights

In principle, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. Upon your request, we will be happy to inform you free of charge whether and which of your personal data is stored and processed. We will update any incorrect data to the best of our knowledge. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your rights under data protection law have otherwise been violated, you may lodge a complaint with the competent government supervisory authority. In Austria this is the Data Protection Authority (Datenschutzbehörde).
