Personal information that we have stored in this context will be deleted when storage is no longer necessary or - in the case of statutory retention periods - processing is restricted.

§ 3 Deletion of data

As a matter of principle, we delete or anonymize personal information and sensitive personal information as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the original purpose for which it was collected or processed; unless we are legally obliged to retain the information, i.e., ZF Friedrichshafen AG is legally obliged to retain the information, or the further processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.

We store the usage data including the IP addresses for the purpose of detecting and, if necessary, prosecuting misuse of the app. Unless necessary for detection or prosecution, the usage data is deleted after 7 days. The storage and use of the data is based on legal provisions that justify these processes by stating that (1) the processing is necessary for the performance of the App purchase and use contract or (2) ZF has a legitimate interest in ensuring the functionality and security of the ZF apps.

If you delete your User Account, we will delete your access data and any other information you may have provided that could identify you, e.g., information about your vehicle. The same applies if you do not delete your User Account but do not use the App for a period of 2 years. The movement and mobility data collected is then anonymized so that we can continue to use it in anonymized form for the purpose of product development. Please note that simply uninstalling the App does not delete any data.

§ 4 Sharing of data within the ZF Group

ZF is a German-based, globally active company that is part of the ZF Group, whose current subsidiaries are listed under this link ("ZF Group"). Unless otherwise described (e.g., for product development, if you have given your consent for this), we generally do not pass your personal information, which is processed when using the App, to other companies in the ZF Group. This does not apply to personal information that we collect when you contact us by e-mail, e.g., for a support request via https://ramp-assist.com/support. Such data may be stored in our central data processing system. Such data may be stored in our central customer database in Germany and passed on within the ZF Group for the purpose of managing your relationship with ZF and the ZF Group.

The transfer and use of data is based on legal provisions that justify these operations on the grounds that (1) the processing is necessary for the handling of your request or (2) ZF has a legitimate interest in the transfer of this data within the ZF Group for internal administrative purposes.

Due to the sharing of IT systems within the ZF Group, your personal information may also be processed outside the jurisdiction of your local jurisdiction. If we are required to transfer your personal information to another country in accordance with the data protection laws applicable in your country, we will take appropriate steps to ensure compliance with the relevant legal requirements.

Any transfer of your personal information to a third country will continue to be in accordance with all applicable data protection laws.

To the extent that a third country is not recognized by your local jurisdiction as providing an adequate level of protection, ZF will take appropriate steps to ensure an adequate level of protection for your data.

§ 5 Sharing of data outside the ZF Group

In order to provide certain applications and services, we share your personal information or sensitive personal information with certain external parties who provide services on our behalf. We may use third parties to provide or facilitate services on our behalf, such as newsletter service providers, IT providers, IT support and maintenance, analytics providers, communications service providers, web hosting providers, and other service providers who act as data processors and therefore process the data on our behalf and according to our instructions. These third parties are prohibited from using your personal information for their own commercial purposes, promotional purposes, or purposes other than those expressly instructed. These third parties are also subject to our express instructions and are required to maintain appropriate security measures to protect your personal information. Any disclosure of personal information is justified by the fact that we have carefully selected our third-party companies and external service providers, regularly reviewed them, and contractually obliged them to process all personal information exclusively in accordance with our instructions.

  • The development and hosting of the App is carried out by The SilverLogic, LLC, 6413 Congress Ave, Suite 130, Boca Raton, FL 33487, which is bound by a contract to process the data according to our instructions and in accordance with our privacy policy.
  • We use open datasets from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Weathers)

We may also disclose personal information if required to do so by law because of an ongoing legal proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us, or if otherwise required by law, rule, or regulation.

We have not sold your personal information to any third parties in the past 12 months.

We have no actual knowledge that we have sold any personal information of consumers under 16 years of age.

§ 6 Data security

ZF has taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk of data destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and misuse.
