Data protection

We, TQ-Systems GmbH, are responsible for this online offer and, as a provider of a teleservice, must inform you at the beginning of your visit to our online offer about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data in a precise, transparent, understandable and easily accessible form in clear and simple language. The content of the information must be available to you at all times. We are therefore obliged to inform you which personal data is collected or used.

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person, i.e. with which you can be personally identified. This includes, for example, information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address.

This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We attach great importance to the security of your data and compliance with data protection regulations. We want you to know when we collect which data and how we use it. The collection, processing and use of personal data is subject to the provisions of the currently applicable European and national laws.

This Data Privacy Statement applies to all processing of personal data carried out by us, both in the context of the provision of our services and, in particular, on our websites, in mobile applications and within external online presences, such as our social media profiles (hereinafter also referred to collectively as "online offer").

A. General

For better comprehensibility, we do not differentiate between genders in our Data Privacy Statement. In the interest of equal treatment, the corresponding terms apply to all genders.

The meaning of used terms, such as "personal data" or their "processing" can be found in Article 4 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Personal data of users processed within the scope of this online offer includes inventory data (e.g. names and addresses of customers), contract data (e.g. services used, names of clerks, payment information), usage data (e.g. websites visited within the scope of our online offer, interest in our products) and content data (e.g. entries in the contact form).

"User" includes all categories of persons affected by data processing. This includes, for example, our business partners, customers, interested parties and other visitors to our online offer.

B. Specific

Privacy policy

We warrant that we will only collect, process, store and use your data in connection with the processing of your enquiries and for internal purposes as well as to provide the services you have requested or to make content available.

 

Basics of data processing

We generally use the provided personal data to respond to your inquiries, process your orders or provide you with access to certain information or offers. In order to maintain customer relations, it may also be necessary for us or a service company commissioned by us to use this personal data to inform you about product offers or to conduct online surveys in order to better meet the tasks and requirements of our customers. We will not sell or otherwise market your personal information to third parties.

We will collect, process and use the personal data you provide online only for the purposes disclosed to you. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. The collection of personal data as well as their transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information will only be carried out within the framework of the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision.

We process users' personal data only in compliance with the relevant data protection provisions. User data will only be processed if the following legal permissions apply:

  • to provide our contractual services (e.g. processing of orders) as well as online services
  • the processing is required by law
  • with your consent
  • on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation and security of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, in particular in measuring reach, creating profiles for advertising and marketing purposes, as well as collecting access data and using the services of third-party providers).

We would like to show you where the above legal bases are regulated in the GDPR:

  • Processing for the fulfilment of our services and implementation of contractual measures: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR
  • Processing for the protection of our legitimate interests: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

We would also like to point out that e-mails can be read or changed unauthorized and unnoticed during transmission. Furthermore, we would like to point out that we use software to filter unwanted e-mails (spam filter). The spam filter can reject e-mails if they have been falsely identified as spam by certain characteristics.

 

What are your rights?

Right to information - You have the right to obtain information about your stored data free of charge. Upon request, we will inform you in writing, in accordance with applicable law, which of your personal data we have stored. This also includes the origin and recipients of your data as well as the purpose of the data processing.

Right to rectification - You have the right to have your data stored by us rectified if it is incorrect. At the same time, you can request a restriction of processing, e.g. if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data.

Right to block - Furthermore, you can have your data blocked. To ensure that a blocking of your data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes.

Right to deletion - You can also request the deletion of your personal data, insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain it. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request. If the relevant legal requirements exist, we will also delete your personal data without a corresponding request on your part.

Right to data portability - You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible entity, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Right to restrict processing - You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

For this purpose, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If the processing of your personal data has happened or is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Right to complain to a supervisory authority - You have the possibility to contact one of the data protection supervisory authorities with a complaint.

Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision (BayLDA), Promenade 27, 91522 Ansbach, Germany, Phone: +49 981 53-1300, Fax: +49 981 53-981300

You can open the complaint form of the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision via the following link: https://www.lda.bayern.de/de/beschwerde.html.

Right of objection - You have the possibility at any time to revoke the use of your data for internal purposes with effect for the future. For this purpose, it is sufficient to send a corresponding e-mail to DatenschutzTQDE@tq-group.com . However, such a revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing operations carried out by us up to that point. This does not affect the data processing with regard to all other legal bases, such as the initiation of a contract (see above).

 

Protection and security of your personal data

We take contractual, organizational and technical security measures in accordance with Art. 32 GDPR in line with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and thus to protect the data we process against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons.

The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server. For this purpose, a 256-bit SSL (AES 256) encryption technology is used.

Furthermore, we have established processes that ensure the safeguarding of data subjects' rights, deletion of personal data and an immediate response to the compromise of such data. In addition, we already ensure the protection of personal data during the development and selection of hardware and software in accordance with the principles of Article 25 GDPR. Our security measures are continuously revised in accordance with technological developments.

Your personal data will be protected within the scope of the following points (excerpt):

 

Maintaining the confidentiality of your personal data

In order to protect the confidentiality of your personal data stored with us, we have taken various measures to control access, entry and access control.

 

Maintaining the integrity of your personal data

In order to maintain the integrity of your personal data stored with us, we have taken various measures to control disclosure and input of data.

 

Maintaining the availability of your personal data

In order to maintain the availability of your personal data stored with us, we have taken various measures for order and availability control. The security measures in place are continuously improved in line with technological developments. Despite these precautions, due to the insecure nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee the unrestricted security of your data transmission to our online services. Internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Due to this, any data transmission from you to our online offer is at your own risk.

 

Duration of the storage of your personal data

Personal data will be deleted after expiry of the statutory retention period if they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.

 

Protection of minors

Personal information may only be provided to us by persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 with the express consent of their legal guardians. This data will be processed in accordance with this Data Privacy Policy.

Web Analytics Services: Google Analytics / Universal Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

In the case of activation of IP anonymization in our online offer, your IP address will, however, be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the online offer, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by making the appropriate setting in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used to their full extent.

We would like to point out that this online offer uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form in order to exclude direct personal references.

We also use Google Analytics reports to track demographic characteristics and interests.

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 26 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month. You can find more information on the terms of use and data protection at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html  or at https://policies.google.com/?hl=de .

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to the use of the online offer (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de .

As an alternative to the browser plug-in or within browsers on mobile devices, the following link applies to set an opt-out cookie that prevents the collection by Google Analytics within this online offer in the future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain, delete the cookies in this browser, click the link again): https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout       

 

Use of Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager. Through this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are set and no personal data is collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags that may collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with Google Tag Manager. More information on the Google Tag Manager can be found at the following link: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/tag-manager/

You have the option to prevent all tags from being sent by the Google Tag Manager. To do this, you need to click the opt-out link below to place the Google Tag Manager deactivation cookie in your browser. Click here to change your Google Tag Manager settings.

Use of YouTube

Functions of YouTube service for displaying and playing videos are integrated into our online offer. These functions are offered by the website YouTube operated by Google. The operator of these pages is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Further information can be found in YouTube's privacy policy:  https://www.youtube.com/intl/ALL_de/howyoutubeworks/our-commitments/protecting-user-data/#privacy-guidelines

The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only triggers the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded Youtube videos is started, Youtube uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from Youtube, these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive behaviour.

When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

Independently of a playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is established each time our online offer is called up, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

Furthermore, Youtube can store various cookies on your terminal device. With the help of these cookies, Youtube can obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

For more details about YouTube's use of cookies, please see YouTube's privacy policy at: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube.

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, please refer to YouTube's privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

 

Use of Mouseflow

This website uses Mouseflow, a web analytics tool from Mouseflow ApS, Flaesketorvet 68, 1711 Copenhagen, Denmark, to record randomly selected individual visits (only with anonymized IP address). This results in a protocol of mouse movements, mouse clicks and keyboard interaction, with the intention of randomly replaying individual visits to this website as so-called session replays as well as evaluating them in the form of so-called heat maps and deriving potential improvements for this website. The cookie generated by Mouseflow is deleted after a period of 90 days. The data collected by Mouseflow is not personal and will not be passed on to third parties and will be stored for a period of 3 months. The storage and processing of the collected data takes place within the EU. If you do not wish to have your data collected by Mouseflow, you can object to this on all websites that use Mouseflow by clicking on the following link: https://mouseflow.de/opt-out/https://mouseflow.de/opt-out.

 

Newsletter

When you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, personal data is collected. This data will be used by us for our own advertising purposes in the form of your e-mail newsletter, provided that you have expressly consented to this as follows: "Yes, I would like to subscribe to the newsletter! I accept the Data Privacy Statement".

If you would like to subscribe the newsletter offered on our website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and agree to receipt of the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to us, e-mail: DatenschutzTQDE@tq-group.com : unsubscribe. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted immediately from our newsletter distribution list and included in a blocking file to ensure revocation.

The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

Newsletter tracking

If you have previously given your express consent beforehand, newsletter tracking (also called web beacons or tracking pixels) is used. When delivering the newsletter, the external server can then record certain data of the recipient, e.g. the time of the retrieval, the IP address or information on the e-mail program used (client). The name of the image file is individualized for each mail recipient by attaching a unique ID. The mail sender remembers which ID belongs to which e-mail address and can thus determine which newsletter recipient has just opened the e-mail when the image is retrieved.

By newsletter tracking, user behaviour is recorded in pseudonymized form. This involves the following pseudonymized data: Recipient, Recipient minus bounces, Recipient in queue, Recipient skipped, Unique unsubscribe rate, Unique unsubscribes, Bounce rate, Bounces (thereof hard and soft bounces), Unique opening rate, Unique openings, Opening rate, Openings, Unique click rate, Unique clicks, Click rate, Clicks, Effective unique click rate, Clicks for segmenting target groups.

We work with an external service provider, Inxmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße 17, 79106 Freiburg, Germany, to deliver the newsletter. Your personal data will be forwarded to Inxmail GmbH for the purpose of sending the newsletter and processed by them exclusively in accordance with our instructions.

 

Trademark protection

Any company or trademark mentioned herein is the property of the respective company. The mention of trademarks and names is for informational purposes only.

 

Newsletter - Job Alert

You have the option of subscribing to the newsletter distribution list in the form of a job alert. You have the right and the possibility to unsubscribe from the job alert at any time. To do so, simply send an e-mail to DatenschutzTQDE@tq-group.com . You also have the option of unsubscribing yourself from the Job Alert by clicking on the unsubscribe link. We work with an external service provider, Haufe Service Center GmbH, Munziger Str. 9, 79111 Freiburg, Germany to deliver the Job Alert. Your personal data will be forwarded to Haufe Service Center GmbH for the purpose of sending the newsletter and processed by them exclusively in accordance with our instructions.

Job alert tracking: If you have expressly consented beforehand, job alert tracking (also called web beacons or tracking pixels) is used. When delivering the job alert, the external server can then record certain data of the recipient, e.g. the time of the retrieval, the IP address or details of the e-mail program used (client). The name of the image file is individualized for each mail recipient by appending a unique ID. The mail sender notes which ID belongs to which e-mail address and can thus determine which Job Alert recipient has just opened the e-mail when the image is retrieved.

 

Social networks

In addition to this online offer, we also maintain presences in various social media, which you can reach via corresponding buttons in the footer or via links on our website. If you visit such a presence, personal data may be transmitted to the provider of the social network. It is possible that, in addition to the storage of the data specifically entered by you in this social medium, further information will also be processed by the social network provider. Furthermore, the social network provider may process the most important data of the computer system from which you visit such social network - for example, your IP address, the used processor type and browser version, including plug-ins. If you are logged in with your personal user account of the respective social-network when visiting such a presence, this network can assign the visit to this account. The purpose and scope of the data collection by the respective medium as well as the further processing of your data there as well as your rights in this regard can be found in the respective provisions of the respective responsible party, e.g. under:

Facebook-Pixel, Custom Audiences and Facebook Marketing Services

Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, is used due to our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes as well as for conversion measurement.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, the behavior of page visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized.

Furthermore, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads") via the Facebook pixel. This is a tracking method that enables the identification of users via websites. Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences").

With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

The Facebook pixel is directly integrated by Facebook when you visit our website and can store a so-called cookie on your device. If you then log in to Facebook or visit Facebook while logged in, the visit to our online offer will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you (surname, first name, e-mail account) is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and can be used by Facebook as well as for its own market research and advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Privacy Policy. This may allow Facebook to serve ads on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of data cannot be influenced by us as a website operator. If we transmit data to Facebook for matching purposes, this data is encrypted locally on the browser and only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done solely for the purpose of creating a comparison with the data encrypted in the same way by Facebook.

Furthermore, when using the Facebook Pixel, we use the additional function "extended matching", whereby data for the formation of target groups ("Custom Audiences" or "Look Alike Audiences") is transmitted to Facebook in encrypted form.

The aforementioned data processing by us is justified in each case in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in displaying personalized advertising to you and evaluating the use of our website in the context of carrying out advertising or marketing measures using the services of third-party providers.

The processing of data by Facebook takes place within the framework of the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/policy.php or https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php ). You can find further information on the protection of your privacy in Facebook's privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.  Specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook's help section (https://www.facebook.com/business/help/742478679120153?id=1205376682832142 ).

You can opt-out of the Facebook Pixel's collection and use of your data to display Facebook ads. To set which types of ads are displayed to you within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen ) and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising. The settings are platform-independent (desktop or mobile). If you do not want social networks to directly assign the data collected via our website to your profile, you must log out of the corresponding social networks before visiting our website.

You can also object to the use of cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes via the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative (https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c ).

You can also turn off the Custom Audiences remarketing feature in the Ads Settings section (you must be logged in to Facebook to do this):

https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen   

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can opt out of usage-based advertising from Facebook on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website:

LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the "LinkedIn Insight Tag", a conversion tool of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. This tool allows us to present you with advertisements on other websites that are tailored to your interests. To do this, a cookie is set in your browser with a validity of 120 days, which enables LinkedIn to recognize you when you visit a website. LinkedIn uses this data to provide us with anonymized reports, these anonymized reports contain data about ad activity as well as information about your interaction with our website.

Through the LinkedIn Insight tag, the behavior of page visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a LinkedIn ad. This allows the effectiveness of the LinkedIn ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized. The LinkedIn Insight tag enables the collection of data on visits, including URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties (user agent) and timestamp. This data is encrypted, IP addresses are shortened, and members' direct IDs are removed within seven days to pseudonymize the data. The remaining pseudonymized data is then deleted within 90 days.

The collected data is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by LinkedIn so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and LinkedIn can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the LinkedIn data usage policy. This allows LinkedIn to enable the placement of advertisements on pages of LinkedIn as well as outside of LinkedIn. This use of the data by LinkedIn cannot be influenced by us as website operator.

The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

The aforementioned data processing is justified in each case in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in displaying personalized advertising to you and evaluating the use of our website in the context of carrying out advertising or marketing measures using the services of third-party providers.

Purposes of the collection and processing of your personal data:

We collect, process and use your personal data exclusively for the purposes of:

  • Collection of prospective customer data for the preparation of offers and acquisition of new customers
  • Processing of enquiries from interested parties and customers
  • Processing of customer orders
  • Creation and maintenance of a customer and supplier database
  • Use of the prospective customer or customer data for marketing purposes
  • Statistical evaluation of the prospective customer or customer data
  • General business interest with all related ancillary purposes

Your data will only be processed for purposes other than those mentioned above if such processing is permitted under Art. 6 (4) GDPR and is compatible with the original purposes.

 

Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is primarily Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Your personal data will only be stored as long as the knowledge of such data is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or as long as legal or contractual storage regulations have to be observed.

Who receives your data? Within our company, only those persons have access to your data who are responsible for prospect management, customer management and supplier management and who need this data to properly fulfil our contractual and legal obligations.

Commissioned data processors used by us (Art. 28 GDPR) as well as trading partners within or outside Europe (third country) may also receive personal data for these purposes. Of course, we have concluded appropriate data protection agreements with our commissioned data processors or trading partners, which ensure that the data processing is carried out in a permissible manner.

TQ-Systems GmbH is also entitled to outsource the processing of your personal data in whole or in part to external service providers who act as data processors for TQ-Systems GmbH in accordance with Art. 4 No. 8 GDPR and Art. 28 GDPR. External service providers support us, for example, in the technical operation and support of the website, data management, the provision and performance of services, marketing and website analysis, as well as the implementation and fulfilment of vigilance reporting obligations. The service providers commissioned by TQ-Systems GmbH process your data exclusively in accordance with our instructions. TQ-Systems GmbH remains responsible for the protection of your data, which is ensured by strict contractual regulations, technical and organizational measures and additional controls by us.

Personal data may also be disclosed to third parties if we are legally obliged to do so - e.g. by court order or on the basis of official vigilance regulations (legal basis for processing: Art. 6 (1) c) DSGVO) or if this is necessary to support other legal investigations or proceedings at home or abroad or to fulfil the legitimate interests of TQ-Systems GmbH (legal basis for processing: Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO).

 

Data collection (web contact form)

If you send us enquiries via the web contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

We warrant that we will only collect, process, store and use the data you enter in our web contact form in connection with the processing of your enquiry and for internal purposes, as well as to provide services requested by you or to make content available.

The data you enter in the web contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

The processing of the data entered in the web contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us (DatenschutzTQDE@tq-group.com ) is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

Inquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data arising from it (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests sent to us. The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

 

Data transmission upon conclusion of a contract for online shops, dealers and goods dispatch

We transmit personal data to third parties only if this is necessary in the context of the contract, such as to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the credit institution entrusted with the payment processing. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to such transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

For the dispatch of your order we pass your address data and if necessary your email address and telephone number on to the logistics enterprise assigned with the supply for the delivery date co-ordination.

Our contractual partners can create an account within our shop-based online offer (customer or user account, hereinafter "customer account"). If the registration of a customer account is required, we will point this out to our contractual partners as well as the information required for the registration. The customer accounts created are not public and cannot be indexed by search engines. Within the scope of registration and subsequent logins and use of the customer account, the IP addresses of the customers are stored together with the access times in order to be able to prove the registration and to prevent any misuse of the customer account. If customers have terminated their customer account, the data relating to the customer account will be deleted, unless their retention is required for legal reasons.

 

Payment procedure

Within the framework of shop-based online offers, we offer various payment options and for this purpose, in addition to credit institutions, other payment service providers are involved by us.

The data processed by payment service providers includes inventory data, such as name and address, bank data, such as account numbers or credit card numbers, passwords, TAN data and checksums, as well as the contract, sum and recipient-related information. These details are necessary to carry out the transactions. However, the data entered is processed exclusively by the payment service providers and stored with them. We do not receive any account or credit card related information, but only information regarding a confirmation or non-confirmation of the payment.

 

Types of data processed: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), payment data (e.g. bank details, invoices, payment history), contract data (e.g. subject matter of contract, term, customer category), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).

Affected Persons: Customers or prospective customers.

Purposes of processing: provision of contractual services and customer service.

Legal basis: Contract fulfilment and pre-contractual enquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b. GDPR), Legitimate Interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. GDPR).

Data transmission upon conclusion of a contract for services and digital content

We transmit personal data to third parties only if this is necessary for the processing of the contract, for example to the credit institution commissioned with the processing of payments.

A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

 

How long will your data be stored?

Your personal data will only be stored as long as the knowledge of this data is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or as long as legal or contractual storage regulations have to be observed.

 

What data protection rights do you have?

You have the right to obtain information about the personal data we process about you.

You have the right to request confirmation from us as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed. If data is inaccurate or no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, you may request the rectification, erasure or restriction of processing.

If the processing of your personal data is based on your voluntary consent, this can be revoked by you at any time for the future. Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law. Furthermore, you have a right to object to processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to a right to data portability. You have the right to complain about the processing of personal data by us to a supervisory authority for data protection.

Change of our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to change our security and data protection measures from time to time or to adapt them accordingly, insofar as this becomes necessary due to progressive technical development or changed legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection notices. This could, for example, concern the introduction of new services. In these cases, we will also adapt our data protection information accordingly.

The new data protection information will then apply to your next visit, so please note the current version of our Data Privacy Policy.
