Am I being monitored illegally by GPS?
According to the judgment of the Federal Court of Justice, the use of GPS transmitters is strictly prohibited and is a criminal offense!
Secretly following or tracking your partner or an employee via GPS is not a good idea and represents a serious violation of personal privacy rights.
As part of a revision, the BGH found that there must be a predominantly legitimate interest in data collection in order to justify GPS monitoring.
Authorities are also not allowed to use this technology to monitor people without a court issued warrant.
Many clients turn to our detective agency because they fear being monitored by such a device or a tracking app.
How does GPS monitoring work?
Devices (such as GPS trackers or live GPS tracking systems) can easily and secretly monitor vehicles and people 24 hours a day. These devices transmit the exact position of the person or the vehicle to be monitored to a PC or smartphone via GPS and an associated SIM card.
This enables movement profiles of a person or a vehicle to be created down to the minute.
The current state of the art also allows it to be monitored using a smartphone and special software.
For untrained people it is almost impossible to be able to recognize such devices or special software on a vehicle or smartphone.
A pure underbody inspection of a vehicle is no longer sufficient these days, as methods of installation have become very diverse and professionals are always developing new strategies to hide these devices invisibly.
