Visitors and users of the online offer. In the following we also refer to the data subjects as "users".
"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as
"data subject"). A natural person is considered to be identifiable if he or she can be identified, directly
or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, identification number, location
data, online identifier (e.g. cookie) or to one or more special features that express the physical, physiological,
genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
"Processing" means any operation carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures or any such series of operations in connection with personal data. The term is broad and covers practically every handling of data.
"Party responsible" means the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body which, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.
The hosting services we use serve to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity,
memory space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for
the purpose of operating this online offer.
We or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in conjunction with. Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of an order-processing contract).
Our website uses a session cookie as part of the "HTTPS-Check" online service to make automated requests through CAPTCHA more difficult.
TEQPORT collects information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage behaviour
and interaction with us and record data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data
about every access to our online offer (server log files). The access data includes the name and URL
of the accessed file, the date and time of access, the transferred data volume, the notification of successful access
(HTTP response code), the browser type and browser version, the operating system, the referrer URL (i.e. the previously
visited page), the IP address and the requesting provider.
We use this log data, without allocation to your person or other profiling, for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of our online offer, but also for anonymised recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent and type of use of our website and services. Based on this information, we can provide personalised and location-based content, analyse traffic, troubleshoot and correct errors, and improve our services. We reserve the right to check the log data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time, if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision of services. We also store IP addresses if we have specific suspicions of a criminal offence in connection with the use of our website.
If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we store your details for processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We only store and use further personal data if you give your consent or if this is legally permissible without special consent.
We use content or service offers from third-party providers in our online offer based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest
in the analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of our online offer as defined by Art. 6 para. 1 lit.
f. GDPR) to incorporate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter referred
to as "content").
This always requires that the third-party providers of this content know the IP address of the users, since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browsers. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only content, the respective providers of which use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third-party providers may also use pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may include technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit time and other information about the use of our online offer, and linked to such information from other sources.
We integrate the maps of the "Google Maps" service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and commercial operation of our online
offer as defined by Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) we use Social Plugins ("plugins") of the social network
facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin
2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The plugins can display interaction elements or content (e.g. videos, graphics or
text contributions) and are identified by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue tile, the terms "Like",
"Gefällt mir" or a "thumbs up" symbol) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list
and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here:
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees its compliance with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his/her device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user's device and integrated into the online offer. The processed data can be used to create user profiles. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform users according to our level of knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives information that a user has called up on the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to that user's Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, e.g. clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the information is sent directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the protection of the privacy of users, can be found in the Facebook Data Privacy Statement:
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about them via this online offer and link it to their membership data stored on Facebook, the user must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and delete his/her cookies. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible in the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers and mobile devices.
The legal basis for data processing in accordance with the above sections is Art 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our interests in
data processing are in particular to ensure the operation and security of the website, to investigate the
manner in which visitors use the website, and to simplify the use of the website.

We strive to ensure the security of your personal data within the scope of the applicable data protection laws and technical
We encrypt the transmission of your personal data. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer), but point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures which we constantly adapt to the state of the art.
Furthermore, we do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are regularly and carefully secured.
Automated decision-making based on the personal data collected does not take place.
We only use your personal data within our company.
If and to the extent that we involve third parties to fulfil contracts, they receive personal data only to the extent to which the transmission is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("contracted processing"), we contractually oblige our processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
No data is or is planned to be transmitted to places or persons outside the EU or outside the cases mentioned in this Data Privacy Statement.
If you have any questions about our data protection or this Data Privacy Statement, or if you would like to exercise your rights, please contact our Data Protection Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to TEQPORT Services GmbH (for contact data see section 1 and the Legal Notice) adding "Datenschutz".

or in the event of changes to the service or data processing. However, this only applies with regard to declarations
