How does TE-SYSTEMS use social plug-ins from Twitter, LinkedIn, XING and Google?

Twitter

The buttons on Twitter recognize you by terms like “Twitter” or “episode”, combined with a stylized blue bird. With the help of these buttons it is possible to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter or follow TE-SYSTEMS on Twitter. When a user accesses a web page of this website and activates the Twitter button, the browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user’s browser.
TE-SYSTEMS has no control over the amount of data Twitter collects using this plug-in. Nevertheless, we would like to inform you as far as we are able to:
It is the IP address of the user as well as the URL of the respective website when the button is received, but not for purposes other than the appearance of the button, used. For more information, see the Twitter Privacy Policy at http://twitter.com/privacy..

How does TE-SYSTEMS protect your data?

When transferring data, for example, when entering your customer data in the registration form or in the contact form, we offer you the so-called SSL security procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with a 256-bit encryption.
You can recognize the transmission of encrypted data by displaying a closed key or lock icon in the lower status bar of your browser.

This technology offers maximum security and is therefore also used by banks for data protection in online banking, for example.

How can you change or delete your data at TE-SYSTEMS?

Upon your request to datenschutz@te-systems.de, we will correct, block or delete the data stored about you, if other legal regulations (eg the obligation to retain invoices) do not conflict with this.
You can view, edit and delete the data in your customer account at any time in the section “Profile” using your e-mail address and your password.

If you would like to initiate a deletion or change of your other data stored with us, please contact us in writing at privacy@te-systems.de with the subject “deletion of personal data”.

In case you have forgotten your password, we offer you a special service: In the Community, you will find the link “Forgot your password?” (on the login page). When you click on this, it  will lead you to an online form. Apart from a security check you will be prompted to enter your email address. Once you have completed this form and clicked on the ‚Reset‘ button, we will send a replacement password to the confirmed e-mail address.

Please note: You should not pass on your password to third parties, always log out of your personal account after use and use SSL encryption when using the TE-SYSTEMS Community whenever it is offered by us.
