Generally you can visit the Internet pages of TQ-Systems GmbH without the need for personal data from you. When you access the website of TQ-Systems GmbH, only general information, which cannot be used for personal use, is automatically collected, thus not via a registration. The web servers used by us, by default, store the website from which you visit us and the websites you visit as part of our Internet offer, as well as the name of the files, date and time of the respective retrieval as well as, if applicable, operating system and browser version of your PC. We will only analyze these information anonymously for statistical purposes. They are used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, functionality and the content of our web presence on an ongoing basis. Personal user profiles are not created. No further use or transfer of these personal data is made.

Personal data will be collected by us only if you provide them on your own initiative, e.g. if you apply online for a job or participate in a survey. These data are only used for this designated purpose.

We use so-called cookies in some areas of our internet presence. Cookies are identifiers that a web server can send to your computer to identify it for the duration of the visit. You can set your Internet browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent to you. Permanent cookies are not used on the websites of TQ-Systems GmbH. Only so-called session cookies are used in order to make the web content available to the users of our websites more individual and to offer you greater comfort.

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content and handling of your order (company data). We collect, process and use personal data on the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only to the extent that this is necessary to enable the user to make use of the web service or to settle the charges.

4. Use, processing, transmission and transfer of personal data and appropriation
TQ-Systems GmbH generally uses the personal data you provide to answer your request, process your order, or give you access to special information.

All personal data collected by TQ-Systems GmbH in the course of the internet services operated by TQ-Systems GmbH will be processed in accordance with the applicable regulations for the protection of personal data, only for the purpose of the necessary contract processing or payment processing and for the protection of our own business interests with regard to the consultation, information and support of our Customers and other interested parties. A sale of your personal data to third parties or any other data marketing will not be carried out without explicit consent.


5. Security
TQ-Systems GmbH takes technical and organizational precautionary measures to effectively protect your personal data from loss, destruction, accidental or intentional manipulation or the access of unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. In doing so, the statutory data protection regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany are taken into account.

6. Access data / server log files
We (or our webspace provider) automatically collect and store data about every access to our web presence (so-called server log files), which your browser automatically transmits to us. These access data include:

Name of page accessed; file, date and time of the retrieval, transferred data volume, message of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (website previously visited), the host name of the accessing computer, IP address and the requesting provider.

These data cannot be attributed to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We use these log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of our web offer. The provider, however, reserves the right to check the log data at a later date, if there is concrete evidence for suspecting an unlawful use.

7. Handling of personal data
Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be identified, thus information which can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, the e-mail address or the telephone number.
But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites have been viewed by someone, are also personal data.

Personal data are collected, used and passed on by the provider only if this is legally permitted or if the users consent to the data collection.


8. Contact
When contacting the provider (for example via a contact form or e-mail), the user's data are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in the event that further questions arise.


9. Comments and contributions
If users post comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are saved. This occurs to the security of the provider, if someone in comments and contributions writes illegal contents (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the author's identity.

10. Comment subscriptions
Follow-up commentaries can be subscribed by users. Users will receive a confirmation e-mail to verify that they are the owner of the e-mail address entered. Users can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation e-mail will contain notes on that issue.

11. Newsletter
We inform you about us and our offers with newsletters. If you would like to receive the newsletters offered on the website, we require a valid email address as well as information which allows us to verify that you are the owner of the given email address and / or its owner agrees with the receipt of the newsletter. Further data is not collected. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.


By registering for the newsletter, we will save your IP address and the date of the registration. This data storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and logs on to the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized party.

For statistical purposes, we conduct anonymous link tracking.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as their use for sending the newsletters at any time. The revocation can take place via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by notification to

12. Integration of third-party services and content
It is possible that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, may be included within this website. This always assumes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of these contents. We try to make only use of such content, whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we will not have and influence if the third-party vendor uses and saves the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as such use is known by us, we will inform the users about it.


13. Cookies
Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. These serve on the one hand to make our web offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. On the other hand, they are used to record the statistical data of the website use and to be able to analyze them for the purpose of improving the web offer. Cookies are small text files which are filed on your computer and which are saved by your browser. These files make it possible to store specific information related to the device on the user's access device (PC, Smartphone or similar). They serve the user-friendliness of web pages and thus the users (e.g. storage of login data). Most of the cookies we use are so called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Cookies do not damage your computer and contain no viruses.


Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option that restricts or prevents the storage of cookies. However, it should be noted that the use and, in particular, the convenience of use is restricted without cookies.
