In accordance with the principle of data economy, you can use our online services largely without disclosing your identity. If you register for one of our personalised services, order further information, send us an application or request a quote, we will ask you for your name and other personal information. You are free to decide what information, if any, you provide to us. However, if you do not wish to provide us with any information at all, some of the services on our website may not be available to you.
Under no circumstances will your data be passed on to third parties without your consent. Similarly, no automated decision-making or profiling based on your personal data will take place at any point.

TTS affirms that it will not knowingly collect personal data from children, use it in any way or disclose it to third parties without authorisation.
Provision of the website and collection of log files
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The data is primarily collected for statistical evaluation and technical optimisation of the website. In the event of concrete indications of illegal use, we reserve the right to check this data.

- Requested website or file
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Type of device used
- Time of access

The data provided is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user or merged with other data.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this data processing is based on the necessity of temporary data storage, in particular the IP address, in order to enable the delivery of the website and to ensure the functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or distorted in such a way that they can no longer be associated with the calling client.
Contact form and e-mail contact
Our website contains a contact form that can be used to contact us electronically. If a user makes use of this option, the data entered in the input screen is transmitted to us and stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry. This data is transmitted to us in HTTPS-encrypted form when it is sent. In addition, the following data is also stored at the time the message is sent and is used for statistical purposes:
- The IP address and user agent of the sender
- The date and time of sending
The legal basis for processing the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If the e-mail contact is aimed at concluding a contract to which the user is party or to perform pre-contractual actions, the additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.
In the above cases, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.
We will transmit personal data to third parties where we are required to do so by law. The relevant legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(c) GDPR.
All data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input screen of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
Information request form
In addition to our contact form, you can download information such as current webinar content, technical papers or product presentations via our website. To access this content, we collect your contact details (name, company, email address).
The basis for this is Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR, namely the use for evaluating customer interests and targeted customer and prospect approach.
These are transmitted to us in HTTPS-encrypted form when they are sent. In addition, the following data is also stored at the time the message is sent and is only used for statistical purposes:
- The IP address and user agent of the sender
- The date and time of sending
The data will not be passed on to third parties.

- The personal data concerning you has been processed unlawfully.

If we have made public the personal data concerning you and are obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, we shall, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform recipients which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of such personal data.

Where the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, we will only process such data - apart from storage - with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or a Member State.

Revocability of declarations of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke the declarations of consent under data protection law you have given us at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
Right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority
If you believe that our processing of personal data relating to you is in breach of the legal provisions relating to data protection, you may without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.
As a responsible company, we naturally take precautions to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorised access. For example, you can use our entire website HTTPS-encrypted.
