1. The information we collect about you
We collect your personal information when you use or otherwise access our Site and Services. We either collect it directly or indirectly, depending on the source and situation.
For example, you provide us with your personal information when you request to receive a quote, sign up for marketing communications, access the Portal, use an EVBox charge card, or use an EVBox charging station. We also process your personal information when you apply for a job at EVBox. We may collect and receive some personal information from our affiliates or non-affiliated third parties. We also collect some personal information automatically about your use of our Sites.
Information We Collect When You Request To Receive A Quote
If you request to receive a quote, we process your personal information to let our colleagues contact and help you to get the quote you need for any of the Services we provide. We may also process your personal information to send you some marketing communications. You may unsubscribe to it whenever you want. The legal basis for this processing activity is your consent. For this purpose, we process the following contact details: first name, last name, company name, email address, phone number, city, and country.
Please review the “How we share your information” section for further details.
Information We Collect When You Use Or Access Our Services
When you create an account in our Portal, we may ask for your first name, last name, email address, and password. Depending on the type of account, we may ask for an account name, your company name, and tax number. For billing purposes, we may ask for your postal address, including your city and country. We may also ask for some of this information when you request a quote or when you sign up for marketing communications. Please review the “Portal” section for further details.
When you use an EVBox charge card in any charging station we process a unique charge card number, a unique charging station number, and details about your charging session such as location and duration. If you use an EVBox charge card in your own or other EVBox charging station, we may also process some log files containing service data of the station and its charging sessions. If your employer, (employer’s) lease company, business partner, landlord, parking facility or other company/individual (“Card Owner”) provides you with an EVBox charge card, we may also process your name and bank details for invoicing you for the charging session.
When you use an EVBox charging station we process an authentication number, a unique charge card number, and details about the charging session such as duration and location. If you hold a charge card of another eMobility Service Provider (“eMSP”), allowing you to charge at an EVBox charging station, we may also process an identifier of your eMSP and a transaction number. If you use an ad-hoc payment method, we also process a confirmation of the payment. In this last case, it is the payment service provider that processes your bank account details.
Information We Collect When You Apply For A Job
If you apply for one of our positions, we process your personal information to assess if you are suitable for such position. The legal basis for this processing activity relies on our legitimate interest, as we need to assess how you can help us to accelerate the transition towards a zero-emission future. For this purpose, we may process the following personal information:

We will only use the personal information about you if such is necessary and relevant to the position you apply for. We keep this information on file for one year, or as otherwise required by applicable law and regulation.
In the application process we may ask you if we can also contact you for any upcoming employment opportunity for which you may be suitable, and thus keep your personal information on file for a period of one year for this purpose. You can refuse and/or withdraw your consent for this at any time.

What are Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your device’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate the Site and Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at the Site and Service. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
- Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your device when you close your browser or turn off your device. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site and Services. This allows us to, personalize certain settings (ie. language setting), process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through the Site and Services.
- Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device for a certain period of time, or until you remove them, after you have closed your browser or turned off your device. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, to store your preferences (ie. video player preference and auto populating forms) and to display advertising both on the Site, Services, and on unaffiliated websites.
Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to the Site and Services who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web and app pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with the Site and Services to, among other things, track the activities of Site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Site usage. We and our service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
Cross-Device Use. We and our service providers, including Google, may use the information that we collect about you (whether directly from the Site, through your device(s), or from an unaffiliated entity) to help us and our service providers identify other devices that you use (e.g., a mobile phone, tablet, other computer). We, and our service providers also may use the cross-device use and other information we learn about you to serve targeted advertising on your devices and to send you emails. To opt-out of cross-device advertising, you may follow the instructions set forth in the “Ad Networks” section below. Please note: if you opt-out of these targeted advertising cookies, your opt-out will be specific to the web browser, app, or device from which you accessed the opt-out. If you use multiple devices or web browsers, you will need to opt-out each browser or device that you use.
Do-Not-Track. Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you also may opt-out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the “Ad Networks” section below.
6. Ad networks
Users in the United States may opt out of many ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and your choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and your choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies' delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through the Site, Services, or on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt-out may not be effective.
7. Links to other websites
The Site and Services may contain links to unaffiliated websites. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such unaffiliated entities’ websites.
8. Security of your personal information
We have implemented reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee security.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
9. Children under 13
The Site and Services are not designed for children under 13 years old. If you are under 13, you should not register with or otherwise provide your personal information to the Site or Services. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information from our systems.
10. Cross-boarder transfers
As a global company, we may transfer, process, or store the personal information we have about you to countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected. As such, your personal information may be subject to the laws of the countries in which it is stored or used. By using the Site and the Services, you understand that your information may be transferred, processed, or stored outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have a different data protection regime from the country in which you reside. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries will be entitled to access your personal information.
