Privacy Policy

The Tesium privacy policy applies to the website which Tesium is responsible for. Tesium website may contain links to foreign companies, to which our privacy policy does not apply. Tesium considers the protection of personal data to be of the utmost importance. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you about how we protect your privacy when you make your personal data available to us. Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural Person (data subject), e.g. Name, address, contact Information, username, IP address, photos, Videos and location information, etc.

Insofar as personal data is stored and used for the proper implementation of our service offerings and for statistical purposes, this is done according to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

Below, we present to what extent and for what purpose user data is recorded, stored and used on the Tesium website.

Server Log Files

When you visit our Website, we automatically process in our Systems the Information that your browser transmits to us for security and technical reasons. Essentially, the website provider automatically records and stores the information that your browser automatically transmits to us in server log files.

These information are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • The opparating system used
  • The referrer URL (the website that has referred to our website)
  • Host name and full IP address of the accessing computer
  • Date and time of the server request
  • The URL (website) viewed on our Systems

This data is not combined with other data sources and we do not conduct any personalized statistical analysis based on this data. The basis of the data processing is article 6(1) (b) of the GDPR, which permits the processing of data in order to perform a contract or pre-contractual measures.

If we need data in order to identify you personally (personal data) or contract you, you will always be explicitly asked. The data enables the execution of a requested transaction. This can involve, for example, the subscription to a newsletter or a company Magazine.

Recipients of Personal Data and Data Transfers in-/ouside of the European Economic Area

  1. When and why may we share your personal data
We will only share your personal data with third parties and other recipients where we have an appropriate legal ground under the GDPR, which permits us to do so. Commonly, this could include situations where we are legally obliged to provide the information (e.g. to data protection authorities), to comply with our contractual duties (e.g. to an affiliated company, if necessary in terms of our business relation.), where it is necessary in our legitimate interest (e.g. for compliance reasons), or where you have given your express consent to do so (e.g. to third-party Cookie providers).
We have also engaged certain service providers that process your data on our behalf and, therefore, are so-called data processors (e.g. our provider of the website and agencies that help us managing our content thereof). Such data processors are contractually obliged to solely process your personal data based on our contractual agreement and in line with our predefined instructions. As data processors our service providers are also recipients of your personal data.

  2. Data Transfers in-/outside the European Economic Area
In general, the processing of your personal data is based inside the European Economic area (EEA). However, in terms of providing this website and its functionalities we may use certain service providers and/or third-party service provider (in the following recipients) that receive your personal data (see under 3.), which may not process your personal data inside, but in a country outside the EEA. The transfer to service providers outside the EEA takes place on the basis of the so-called adequacy decision by the EU Commission pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR or on the basis of the Standard Data Protection Clauses of the European Union as an appropriate safeguard according to Art. 46 GDPR to ensure an adequate level of data protection in regard of the processing of your personal data.
However, when sharing your personal data with a recipient that is established in a country outside the EEA based on Standard Data Protection Clauses, it may be that the processing is not appropriately safeguarded due to the specific national laws applying to the recipient in such a country. This includes sharing your personal data with and the transfer of your personal data to recipients in the USA. Such transfers of personal data may not be based on appropriate safeguards due to the fact that US authorities are allowed under US law to access and use such data transferred from the EU to the US without any specific exemptional reasons and means of a right to object to such illegitimate access for affected non-US American data subjects. Furthermore, these transfers are not regulated in such a way that would meet requirements equivalent to those existing under EU law specifically regarding the principle of proportionality as monitoring programs based on US legislation are not limited to what is strictly necessary.
Therefore, when we are aware that your personal data may be transferred to the US, e.g. to Google LLC or other recipients, we ensure to collect your express consent and inform you in this Privacy Policy about the corresponding risk that your data may not be appropriately safeguarded regarding illegitimate access or use, before such transfer takes place.
