The operator of these sites takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as this privacy statement.
The use of our website is, as a rule, possible without entering any personal data. Insofar as personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our sites, this shall, as far as possible, always be carried out on a voluntary basis. These data will not be forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent. We would like to point out that data transmission in the Internet (e.g. with communication by e-mail) may feature security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
With the following text we would like to inform you, as user, about the kind, the scope and the purposes of the collection and use of personal data on our website (hereinafter "offer") by the responsible provider
TEQPORT Service GmbH
Merscheider Straße 3
Tel.: +49 212 784 681 0
The legal bases of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), in the Data Protection Basic Regulations (DS-GVO) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
Handling of personal data
Personal data are information, with which a person can be defined, therefore details, which can be traced back to a person. These include the name, the e-mail address or the telephone number. However, personal data also includes data regarding preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone.
Personal data are only collected, used and forwarded by the provider if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.
Data collection and recording
When you call the offer you transmit (due to a technical necessity) data to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data are recorded during an ongoing connection for the communication between your Internet browser and our webserver:
When contacting the provider (for example e-mail) the details of the user will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case any further questions arise. We will not forward these data without your consent.
Reference to electronic post (e-mail):
Information, which you send to us unencrypted by electronic post (e-mail) may be read by third parties during transmission. As a rule we cannot check your identity either and do not know who is hiding behind an e-mail address. Legally secure communication is therefore not guaranteed by e-mail. We use – as many e-mail providers – filters against unsolicited advertising ("SPAM filter"), which in rare cases also automatically classify normal e-mails as unsolicited advertising by mistake and delete these. E-mails, which contain damaging programmes ("viruses") are also automatically deleted by us.
If you send enquiries to the provider by using a contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data entered there by you will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of subsequent questions. We do not forward these data without your consent.
Integration of services and contents of third parties
It may occur that contents of third parties, such as for example videos from YouTube, map material from Google-Maps, RSS-Feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always presumes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third party provider") perceive the IP address of the users. As without the IP address they could not send the contents to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of these contents. We make an effort to only use those contents, whose respective providers merely use the IP address for supply the contents. However, we have no influence in the event that the third party provider stores the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware of this we will inform the users hereof.
The websites partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damages on your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files, which are placed on your computer and are stored by your browser.
The majority of the cookies used by us are so-called "session cookies". They are deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete these. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser on the next visit.

On this website with Matomo, an open source web analysis tool (https://matomo.org) data are collected and stored for marketing and optimisation purposes. Use profiles can be created from these data under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files, which are stored locally in the cache of the Internet browser of the visitor to the site. The cookies enable the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected with Matomo are not used in order to personally identify the visitor to this website without the separately granted consent of the person concerned, nor are these amalgamated with the personal data relating to the bearer of the pseudonym.
The information generated by the cookie regarding the use of this offer will be stored on the server of the provider in Germany. The IP address will be anonymised immediately after the processing and before its storage. Users can prevent the installation of the cookies by a corresponding setting in the browser software. The provider will, however, inform the users that in this case they may, if applicable, not be able to use all functions of this website in full.
SSL encryption (secure data transmission)
For reasons of security and for the protection of the transmission of confidential contents, such as for example the enquiries, which you send to us as the site operator, this site uses an SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and based on the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL encryption is activated the data, which you transmit to us, cannot also be read by third parties.
Use of Facebook social plugins
This offer uses 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 be recognised by one of the Facebook logos (white "f"on a blue tile, the terms "Like", or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the supplement "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be seen here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ .
If a user calls a website of this offer, which contains such a plugin, his browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin will be transmitted directly by Facebook to your browser and will be integrated by it into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data, which Facebook collected with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the users in line with its status of knowledge:
By the integration of the plugins Facebook receives the information that a user has called the corresponding site of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can allocate the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example press the Like button or make a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly by your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is nevertheless the possibility that Facebook finds out about his IP address and stores it. According to Facebook only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him through this offer and to link this with his member data stored by Facebook, he must log-out from Facebook before visiting the Internet presence. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
