Data protection is important to Toll Collect
Satellite-assisted toll collection is a successful innovation in both transport policy and technology. The requirements for data protection and data security have been appropriately high from the beginning. The German Federal Trunk Road Toll Act (BFStrMG) defines strict conditions for this, which Toll Collect meets with its concept. Even with the further development of the toll system, data protection and data security continue to take priority at Toll Collect.
The focus is that all collected data is used for its specified purpose: All data is used exclusively for billing. Passing this data on to third parties is strictly prohibited by law. This also means that there is no opportunity for investigative authorities to access data from Toll Collect regardless of what the investigative purpose may be.
The principle of data economy
Furthermore, the investigators would certainly be disappointed at how little data Toll Collect stores. To fulfil the legal requirements, engineers and software developers worked very closely together with data protectors throughout the planning and design of the technical systems. This has resulted in solutions that integrate data protection into the technology from the outset and only collect data that is absolutely necessary for smooth toll invoicing and enforcement. For us, this means data economy and data avoidance.
Data protection exhibition
At our company headquarters at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, we have a permanent exhibition on data protection. You're welcome to visit the exhibition by appointment.
