A. Responsible entity

We are pleased to welcome you to the website of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH, Mollstrasse 1, 10178 Berlin, email: info@elli.eco, entered in the commercial register of the district court of Charlottenburg under the number HRB 208967 B ("Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH"), and thank you for your interest in our company and our products. We shall provide you with information regarding the collection, processing and use of your data in the following.

B. Processing of your personal data

I. Processing of log files

When using the website, certain information is automatically transferred by your Internet browser and stored by us in so-called log files. In particular, the following information is transferred automatically:

  1. an anonymous cookie ID,

  2. the web browser used by you,

  3. the date and time of your visit,

  4. the pages you have visited on our website,

  5. the website you are visiting us from,

  6. as well as the IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the end device from which you have accessed the online service.

The processing of this data is carried out in accordance with Article 6 Para 1 lit. f of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in being able to display the website properly for you. The data will be erased after 14 days.

Google Ireland ("Google") with its registered office in Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland is the processor for hosting the online shop. Google encrypts the data in accordance with the agreements made with us and processes it exclusively on data servers in the European Union. A (read) access to the information by Google LLC with its registered office in the USA cannot be excluded. Appropriate EU standard contractual clauses have been concluded for the transfer of personal data to processors in order to provide adequate protection with regard to your personal data. The EU standard contractual clauses applied can be retrieved via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.

II. Contact and customer service

You can contact us using the stored e-mail address or telephone number, and send us a request. In this context, we process the information and data provided by you (including personal data) in a ticket so that we can contact you and process your request (Article 6 Para 1 lit.b GDPR). Volkswagen AG, Berliner Ring 2, 38440 Wolfsburg that works as our processor, and Majorel Berlin GmbH, Wohlrabedamm 32, 13629 Berlin, support us in the processing. Your data will also be stored and processed in our CRM system. We have commissioned Salesforce.com, Inc. (The Landmark @ One Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA) as processor for this purpose. An access to information by Salesforce.com, Inc. cannot be excluded; in this respect, a corresponding EU standard contract (an appropriate guarantee for data processing in non-European countries) has been concluded. The EU standard contractual clauses applied can be retrieved via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087. We will erase your data as soon as we have responded to your request to your satisfaction, unless there are other retention periods (e.B. tax-related retention periods) that contradict this.

III. Processing in the scope of the order process

We process the data provided by you in the scope of the order process for the purpose of fulfilling the contract (Article 6 Para 1 lit.b GDPR). Your personal data required for this includes private contact information and identification data (such as name, address and email address) as well as IT usage data (such as order ID, time of the order) and bank details (see the paragraph on "Data processing for payment purposes" for further information on this).

We process your personal data for as long as required for the above-mentioned purposes. In the case of an objection to processing on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6 Para 1 lit. f GDPR), we will erase the personal data unless its continued processing is permitted in accordance with the relevant legal provisions. We will also erase the personal data if required to do so for other legal reasons. In accordance with these general principles, we will basically erase personal data immediately following the non-applicability of the legal basis, if it is no longer required for the specified purpose, or if the specified purpose no longer exists, and insofar as there is no other legal basis (e.g. retention periods in accordance with commercial and tax law), otherwise after the other legal basis no longer applies.

Insofar as the service providers process personal data on our behalf, we have concluded an order processing agreement with these service providers and agreed on appropriate guarantees to ensure the protection of personal data. In addition, we select our service providers carefully; they process the personal data with the exclusive purpose of fulfilling their tasks and are contractually bound to follow our instructions. They have put appropriate technical and organizational measures in place for the protection of personal data, and they are regularly monitored by us. We have concluded corresponding EU standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors in third countries (as appropriate guarantee for data processing in non-European countries). The EU standard contractual clauses applied can be retrieved via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.

IV. Ordering E-MOBILITY EQUIPMENT

Order as guest

You have the option to place your orders as a guest. With this type of order you do not have to register before placing an order, but we collect and process your data required for ordering as a guest (name, address, email address and phone number).

Logistics service

In order to be able to deliver the hardware ordered by you, we transfer your contact information (name, address, email and if necessary, telephone number) to our logistics service provider Arvato Distribution GmbH in Gottlieb-Daimler Str. 1 33428 Harsewinkel, as well as further information regarding your order for specific purposes.

Data processing for the purpose of payment

For the purpose of the processing the payment methods offered in this webshop (e.g. credit card), we have commissioned Adyen BV, Simon Carmiggelstraat 6-50, 1011 DJ Amsterdam, Netherlands, as the payment service provider. As part of the payment process, your payment data (e.g. credit card data) as well as other personal data (e.g. billing address) may be transferred insofar as this information is required for processing the payment. Adyen BV processes your data on its own responsibility for the specific purpose in the framework of the banking service and hence, it bears the responsibility for the data by itself. For the purpose of fraud detection, Adyen also processes your personal data (e.g. name, billing and/or delivery address, email and telephone number) in its capacity as our processor.

Commissioning and configuration of e-mobility equipment

When purchasing your e-mobility equipment, you can choose between models with WLAN connection or LTE mobile communication standard. To ensure the communication capability and up-to-dateness of your e-mobility equipment (including WLAN connection or LTE mobile communication standard), it will transfer the following device-specific data in encrypted form to the IT systems of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH at regular intervals and process it there: device identification, brand, generation, device type and software version.

If you want to use other optional online services (control and analysis of charging cycles) in connection with your e-mobility equipment, it is necessary to link the same with your existing user account. In the framework of the use of the online services, the following personal and other device-specific data is transferred to the IT systems of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH for the provision and rendering of performance, and processed there: customer identification, statistics, charging process information, status, connection status and time stamp of the last communication setup.

Alternatively, you can also select a device without connectivity functions. If you decide to opt for this variant of the e-mobility equipment, then data is not transferred to the IT systems of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH.

V. Declaration of consent to advertising

If you want to receive information about our products, you can order the corresponding advertisements. For this purpose, the following data is processed for the provision of the advertisements in the scope of the consent to be given by you (Article 6 Para 1 lit. a GDPR): family name, first name, email address and telephone number.

You can withdraw your consent at any point of time free of charge with effect for the future vis-à-vis Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH. You will find further information about the assertion of your rights in this privacy policy in the section "Your rights".

Your personal data will be erased as soon as you have withdrawn your consent, provided that no other retention periods (e.g. tax retention periods) prevent this.

VI. Customer satisfaction surveys

In order to fulfil the quality requirements of our customers, we send customer mailings for the purpose of customer satisfaction surveys in order to improve our advertising and customer service as well as our products and services. For this purpose, we use the email address provided by you in the scope of your ID order. To be able to draw conclusions with regard to interdependencies between the type of use of the product and problems arising from the use of the product and your concerns, and to correspondingly adjust our advertising contents, taking into consideration your concerns and the results of your satisfaction survey, we link your concerns and results of your satisfaction surveys to your customer account on the basis of the email address provided by you. Your email address is processed on the basis of Article 6 Para 1 lit. f GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in aligning our products better to the requirements of our customers. Apart from this, we pseudonymize the feedback collect by us in order to implement further actions for the purposes of analysis, categorization and classification (e.g. allocation to appropriate topics) as well as to calculate other anonymous metrics and key figures. In the scope of pseudonymization, we erase all direct identification features (e.g. name, email, user IDs) and retain indirect traceable identification features (pseudonyms). For the purpose of carrying out analyses, we use the processor Google Ireland Limited ("Google") with its registered office in Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which is the processor of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google LLC"). A corresponding EU standard contract (appropriate guarantee for data processing in non-European countries) has been concluded with Google LLC. The EU standard contractual clauses applied can be retrieved via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.

We erase your data from the analysis and segmentation after five years or in accordance with legal requirements, e.g. if the purpose for which it was collected is no longer applicable and the erasure does not contradict any other retention obligations.

VII. Retention obligations

We process your personal data as long as this is required for the above-mentioned purposes. In the case of an objection to processing on the basis of our legitimate interests, we erase the personal data unless its continued processing is permitted in accordance with the relevant legal provisions. We also erase personal data if we are obliged to do so for other legal grounds. In accordance with these general principles, we erase personal data in principle,  immediately following the non-applicability of the legal basis, if it is no longer required for the specified purpose, or the specified purpose ceases and insofar as there is no other legal basis (e.g. retention periods in accordance with commercial and tax law), otherwise as soon as the legal basis no longer applies.

VIII. Data processing by service providers

Insofar as service providers process personal data on our behalf, we have concluded an order processing agreement with these service providers and agreed on appropriate guarantees to ensure the protection of personal data. Apart from this, we select our service providers carefully. They process personal data exclusively for the fulfillment of their tasks and are contractually bound to follow our instructions, have appropriate technical and organizational measures in place to protect personal data and are regularly monitored by us. Corresponding EU standard contractual clauses have been concluded for the transfer of personal data to processors in third countries (as an adequate guarantee for data processing in non-European countries). The EU standard contractual clauses applied can be retrieved via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.

IX. General information related to the analysis of data while using the products and services

Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH continuously endeavors to develop new products and services, to improve the products and services offered by it, and to improve the advertising efforts to market these products and services. A substantiated analysis of the use of products and services (analytics) is necessary to achieve these goals. On account of this reason, Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH processes data from your user account and the linked services, such as e.g. pseudonymous identification data (e.g. a randomly generated pseudonymous user ID), user account data (e.g. preferred partners), transaction data (e.g. charging processes), contract data (e.g. confirmed General terms and conditions), IT use data (e.g. last logins to the services, use of functions) and location data (e.g. truncated GPS Data). The purposes of the processing, the processing itself and the corresponding legal bases are described in detail in the following.

  • Analysis for the development and improvement of products: For the purpose of developing new (e.g. estimation of adoption rates of new products) and improving existing (e.g. evaluation of the adoption rate of existing products) products and services, Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH processes data from the use of our products and services. In the course of the processing, your personal data is pseudonymized. Pseudonymization comprises the erasure of all direct personal identification features (e.g. name, email address, telephone number). Indirect traceable identification features (pseudonyms) are retained. It is only after the execution of this pseudonymization that the data analyzed in the analytics systems of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH. The direct personal reference is not restored at any point of time. The results emerging from the analysis (especially metrics and key figures) are entirely anonymous. The processing of pseudonymous data is necessary because there are interactions between the user account and the respective services. In these cases, the use of the pseudonym is imperatively necessary to associate the data from the user account on which the analysis is based and the linked services. The described processing of your data takes place on the basis of the legitimate interest of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH to offer you newly developed and improved products and services (Article 6 Para 1 lit. f GDPR). Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH erases your pseudonymous data after a period of 5 years or in accordance with the legal requirements, for example as soon as the purpose for which it was collected no longer exists, and insofar as the erasure does not contradict any other retention obligations. 

  • Segmentation for the improvement of advertisements: For the purpose of improving advertisements (e.g. evaluation of relevance for a campaign), Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH processes data that is collected from the use of our products and services. In the course of the processing, your personal data will be pseudonymized. Pseudonymization comprises the erasure of all direct personal identification features (e.g. name, email, telephone number). Indirect traceable identification features (pseudonyms) are retained. It is only after this pseudonymization is carried out that the data is segmented in the analytics systems of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH. The described processing of your data is carried out on the basis of the legitimate interest of Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH to offer you improved advertisements which are personally customized to the user (Article 6 Para 1 lit. f GDPR). Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH erases your pseudonymous data after a period of 3 years or in accordance with the legal requirements, for example, as soon as the purpose for which it was collected no longer exists, and insofar that the erasure does not contradict any other retention obligations. Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH does not use the results to restore a direct personal reference unless you have given a corresponding consent for advertising (Article 6 Para 1 lit. a GDPR). 

  • Commissioning of processors: The personal data processed in the scope of the analysis activity for the purpose of developing new products and improving the existing products and services, and improving advertising is processed by us in Germany. For this purpose, we have commissioned Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google") and Microsoft Ireland Operations Limited with its registered office at 70 Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Microsoft") as processors. An access to the personal data by both Google, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation, both based in the USA, cannot be excluded, which is why corresponding EU standard contractual clauses (agreements approved by the European Commission which ensure that the personal data has the same protection with regard to data processing in non-EU countries as it would in the EU) have been concluded. Google and Microsoft process your personal data exclusively on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions in the framework of an order processing agreement. The EU standard contractual clauses applied can be retrieved via the URL https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087.

C. Use of cookies and tracking tools

General information

Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH uses various cookies on its websites. Cookies are small files containing configuration information which are stored on your end device. Cookies can basically be divided into three categories. There are cookies which are indispensable for the functionality of the website (technically necessary cookies) as well as cookies on the basis of which a pseudonymized user profile is created (so-called analytics & marketing cookies).

The processing of functional cookies is necessary to enable you to visit the website (see Article 6 Para 1 lit.b GDPR).

Analytics & marketing cookies are only used if the website visitor has consented for this (Article 6 Para 1 lit.a GDPR). Consent is provided with the help of the Cookie-Banner, which must be clicked on actively.

You can withdraw the consent to the displayed data processing via the use of cookies and tracking tools stated, at any point of time, with effect for the future by clicking on the following link and changing your existing preferences in our Cookie Consent Manager: Cookie Consent Manager.

You will find the exact list of the cookies used (company, name of the cookie, purpose of use and duration of storage) in the following and at the end of the respective passage (web performance and analysis as well as marketing).

Web performance and analysis

VW Group Charging GmbH uses this data to improve the performance of our website and services and to carry out analysis of the shopping experience with our apps and websites that is relevant to business.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. Website tags can be managed via an interface by this service. Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means: Cookies are not used and personal data is not collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which again collect data, if necessary. However, Google Tag Manger does not access this data. If a deactivation was carried out at domain or cookie level, then it continues to apply for all tracking tags, insofar as they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Company Cookie Purpose Description Cookie Lifetime

Elli _ref This cookie is only set if the referral source is available and the referring website has additional campaign parameters in the URL. In this case, the referring URL is written to this cookie. 30 minutes

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analysis tool that is used for measuring onsite activities and sales data by VW Group Charging GmbH. This data is used to measure target groups and improve services offered by us to our customers and users online as well as offline. The analysis of functions that our customers use often helps us to understand better as to what the customers find useful. By doing this, we can ensure more relevant results and business decisions. The details of the technology used by our customers such as e.g. which app version or which browser they use, helps VW Group Charging GmbH to identify and resolve technical problems.

The USA is a country that does not offer appropriate protection for personal data in the sense of the EU Directive 2016/679. This implies, amongst other things, that the government authorities in the USA possibly have the right to access your data without you having effective legal remedies.
