This website and the web analysis tool “Plausible” is hosted by oacstudio, Klemens Eisenbarth Straße 12, 73433 Aalen-Wasseralfingen. Hosting Servers are located in Germany.

TRON gGmbH respects and protects the privacy of its website users and recognizes the need to protect their personal data. For this reason, no personal information will be collected when visiting our website. All data processing necessary for the performance of this website, as well as the web analysis tool "Plausible", handles only anonymized data, which are not traceable to the specific person using the website.

If you reach third-party internet offers through the use of links (including Twitter and LinkedIn), please note their privacy statements and statements regarding the processing of your personal data. The responsibility for this lies with the respective providers.

If you contact us (e.g. via e-mail, telephone etc.), you consent to the processing of your submitted data (including e.g. name and e-mail address ) in accordance with article 6 paragraph 1 (a) GDPR for the purpose of answering your request and contacting TRON gGmbH.  It might be necessary to forward your contact information internally to the appropriate department for adequate answers. Your data will be processed exclusively within the Federal Republic of Germany (mainly at our company location in Mainz), will not be sent to third parties and will be deleted without delay as long as the contact does not result in any further use. You can revoke your consent free of charge at any time. The processing of personal data takes place on the basis of a legitimate interest within the meaning of article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR and, where appropriate, article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR for (pre)-contractual measures.

In the course of collaborations, recruitment processes, etc., we may use virtual meetings. For this purpose, we use "Zoom" from Zoom Video Communications Inc. (55 Almaden Boulevard, 6th Floor, San Jose, CA 95113, USA) to conduct conference calls, online meetings, video conferences and live webinars.


The following personal data may be processed:

Registration Data/Profile Data: Name, email address, password, picture, phone number (partly optional).

Hosting & usage data (meeting metadata): IP address, user ID, hardware type, operating system type and version, client version, IP addresses along the network path, endpoint MAC address (if applicable), service version, actions performed, meeting session information (title, date and time, frequency, average and actual duration, quantity, quality, network activity, network connectivity), number of meetings, number of sessions with and without screen sharing, number of attendees, host name, screen resolution, joining method, performance / troubleshooting / diagnostic information, chat content (optional).

We protect the participants of our virtual meetings as best as possible through data protection-friendly settings and internal usage guidelines. Sound and video recordings are prohibited and software-based "attention monitoring" and automated decision-making within the meaning of article 22 GDPR are not used.

Personal data processed in connection with participation in virtual meetings are generally not disclosed to third parties unless they are specifically intended for disclosure. The aforementioned service providers necessarily obtain knowledge of the aforementioned data to the extent provided for in the respective order processing agreement.

For the processing of personal data for virtual meetings, there is a legitimate interest pursuant to article 6 paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the part of TRON gGmbH. If applicable, the lawfulness also arises on the basis of article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR for (pre)contractual measures.

The relevant personal data of the participants will be stored until the purpose of the data processing no longer applies. Usually, the above-mentioned data will, however, be deleted within 30 days ("zoom") after the end of the service at the latest insofar as they are not subject to a legal retention period or serve to improve the service.

The processing of personal data in virtual meetings usually takes place in data centers in Europe. In this case, as well as when processing takes place outside of Europe, we ensure an appropriate level of data protection together with the aforementioned service providers by means of order processing agreements pursuant to article 28 GDPR as well as data protection certifications and EU standard contractual clauses.

If applicable, please also refer to the data protection declarations of the named service providers.

TRON gGmbH has implemented technical and organizational measures in its business processes to protect your data and has committed its employees to confidentiality.

We process personal data in accordance with the GDPR and the data protection laws of Germany and Rhineland-Palatinate.

We would like to point out that the processing of personal data by TRON gGmbH results in data subject rights in accordance with data protection laws. You have the right of information, correction, deletion and limitation of the processing of your personal data. Furthermore, you have the right of data transferability, the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing and a right of withdrawal. However, the legality of the processing is not revoked retroactively. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to TRON gGmbH or the responsible data protection supervisory authority.

If you would like to address data subject rights or have questions regarding the processing of personal data by TRON gGmbH, please contact the Data Protection Officer of TRON gGmbH by e-mail or mail.
