This data protection declaration applies to the Techem GmbH website at www.techem.com and to the data collected via this website. For websites of other providers, which are referred to e.g. via links, the data protection notices and declarations of those providers apply.
We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Your security is our top priority
In order to protect your personal data held by us from unauthorized access and misuse, we have taken extensive technical and operational security precautions, which are regularly reviewed and kept up to date with the latest technical standards.
If your data is processed as part of central data processing, for the purpose of improving customer service or for technical reasons within Techem, appropriate measures ensure that the data protection interests of our customers are taken into account in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Please note that we are taking the possible measures to ensure secure data transmission. However, the transmission of data via the Internet is not completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our websites.
Upon written request, we will be happy to inform you about what data we have stored about you. Your questions and comments about data protection and data security are welcome.
What is personal data?
"Personal data" is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more specific characteristics that are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data protection officer
The entity responsible for the processing of personal data of visitors to our website is
as well as possibly its subsidiaries or the companies affiliated with it.
What information do we collect? How do we use it?
Personal data that we receive directly from you
Personal data is collected via this website and stored subsequently if you provide it to us of your own accord, e.g. as part of a registration, by filling out forms, by sending e-mails or by commissioning Techem. We use this data for the purposes stated in each case or those resulting from the inquiry. The data is only used for Techem's own advertising purposes (including recommendation advertising). Furthermore, we use the personal data provided to us for marketing and market research purposes, for customer support and for contacting you. If necessary, we also ask for your participation in surveys that we use for our own marketing, market or opinion research purposes. Data is only transferred to third parties - whereby companies affiliated with Techem GmbH are not considered third parties in this sense - if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract.
- Under certain circumstances, we may need to obtain your consent to process your personal data in connection with certain activities. Depending on what exactly your data is needed for, we will obtain this consent explicitly by "opt-in".
- According to Article 4(11). of the GDPR, consent (by opt-in) is "any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her." In simplified terms, this means that:
- You must voluntarily give us your consent , without us putting any form of pressure on you;
- You must know what you are giving your consent to - so we will ensure that we have provided you with sufficient information;
- You must give us your consent in the form of a positive, affirmative action. We will likely present you with a box to check so that this requirement is clear and unambiguous.
Transfer to third countries
A transfer of personal data to third countries or to international organizations outside the European Union may be made pursuant to Articles 44 to 49 of the GDPR if the European Commission has decided that the third country, territory or one or more specific sectors in that third country or international organization in question provides an adequate level of protection. A list of accepted third countries can be found on the European Commission's website https://edps.europa.eu/data-protection/data-protection/reference-library/international-transfers_de. If there is no adequacy decision and you have not expressly consented to the proposed transfer, the data transfer must be accompanied by additional safeguards, such as standard data protection clauses, approved codes of conduct or an approved certification mechanism.
A transfer to third countries takes place, for example, when cookies are used (e.g. Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Youtube and Marketo). Please note that in the case of transfer to third countries that do not have an adequate level of data protection, the exercise of your rights cannot possibly be fully guaranteed.
Personal information that we automatically collect via this website
Each time you access Techem's website or receive an e-mail and click on a link therein, Techem may automatically collect certain information about you, regardless of whether you use our services.
When you visit this website, Techem only stores a shortened IP address of the requesting computer and the website from which you visit us. During your visit, the access date, the requested file names, the URL, the HTTP response code, the access status, the access duration and the bytes transferred during the connection are stored. We use this information exclusively for statistical purposes, whereby the individual user remains anonymous.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.
If you would like to apply online using the application form, we will forward you to the respective job advertisement on the www.hrecruiting.de platform outside the www.techem.de website.

Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
Cookies that are not technically necessary and collect your data generally require your consent. When you call up our website, you will be asked with the help of the Cookiebot tool which cookies you would like to give your consent to. You can change or revoke your consent at any time in the section (Cookiebot).
You can also set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.
We use functions of Cookiebot, a product of the Danish company Cybot A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, DK. Through these functions, data from you may be sent to Cookiebot or Cybot, stored and processed. You can consent or refuse to the use of all or individual cookies. You can change or revoke your consent here:

Possibility of objection
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- referrer URL
- IP address
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.
Our website uses the etracker analysis service. The provider is etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg Germany. Usage profiles can be created from the data under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used for this purpose. The data collected with the etracker technologies will not be used without the separately granted consent of the person concerned. Visitors cannot be identified from the collected data, nor are visitors to our website personally identifiable and are not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. In order to regularly optimize our website in the interest of our users, we have chosen the variant of session tracking combined with analyses requiring consent. No consent is required for session tracking, as website data with abbreviated IP address is used, which is only transmitted when the page is accessed.. Thus, no information is read from the memory of the user's terminal device and no information is stored on the terminal device. Subject to consent (cookie is set), on the other hand, is the so-called scroll depth analysis, in order to recognize up to which part of the page the user scrolls. This allows the content of the page to be prioritized, ensuring that the most important information for the user is placed above the page.
On this website we use the tool "FriendlyCaptcha", which is provided by FriendlyCaptcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Wörthsee, Germany. To protect the website from spam and abuse, this tool is used for all contact forms. The function of the tool is to distinguish whether the data entered into the contact form was entered by a natural person or whether it was misused by a machine and automated processing. By using FriendlyCaptcha, we can block automated software.
FriendlyCaptcha is a proof-of-work-based CAPTCHA where the user's device does all the work. No personal data is transmitted or processed by FriendlyCaptcha in this process.
Use of Adobe Cloud Services
A web service of the company Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 345 Park Avenue, 95110 San Jose (hereinafter: Adobe Cloud Services) is reloaded on our website. Adobe Cloud Services has self-certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/list). Alternatively, standard contractual clauses have been agreed for the transfer.
From Adobe, we use the Adobe Target software. The software allows us to run so-called A/B tests or multivariate tests on the website. For this purpose, the software controls a modified version of the website (e.g. with different design and content) compared to the original version. By comparing the two variants, we can then determine which presentation our website visitors prefer. This allows us to continuously optimize the portal for our users. We also need the service to display context-sensitive notices and inform users about current promotions and offers.
Adobe Target uses quantitative methods to track user behavior. We do not collect or process the full IP address or any data that could be used to identify individuals. Adobe uses "session cookies" and "permanent cookies". The former are only temporarily stored for the duration of your use of our website. Permanent cookies are used to record information about visitors who repeatedly access our website.
If you have consented to the above personalization of website/newsletter content, pseudonymous interest profiles are created, for which data from Adobe Analytics and segments from Adobe Audience Manager may also be used. For more info on Adobe Target features, click here: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/target/using/implement-target/before-implement/privacy/cmp-privacy-and-general-data-protection-regulation.html?lang=de#concept_41F88DE95D2943178BEC382736B5C038
On this website, we use the Adobe Analytics web analytics service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited ("Adobe Analytics"). Adobe Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored locally in the cache of your Internet browser and that enable an analysis of the use of the website. If the information generated by the cookie about the use of the website is transmitted to a server of Adobe, then the settings ensure that the IP address is anonymized before geolocation and replaced by a generic IP address before storage.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Adobe Analytics is not merged with other Adobe data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Adobe, as well as the processing of this data by Adobe, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html. You can also revoke or adjust your consent of cookies on our website (See section Cookiebot).
Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We use the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and in this context Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").
If you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer ("conversion cookie"). These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain web pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked across AdWords customers' websites.
The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. This tells customers the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.
Marketo is used in the context of sending information. With the help of Marketo, we also collect statistical data on the use of our website offer and communication measures in order to optimize our offer accordingly and to conduct e-mail marketing. In doing so, the processing is partly automated with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects. Marketo collects your IP address and uses it to track and analyze the use of the website in order to provide information specifically tailored to the user's interests. The information generated by the cookies is transmitted to and stored on a Marketo server (located within the EU/EEA). On our behalf, Marketo uses this information to evaluate the use of the website by registered persons and to compile reports on website activities. If information generated in this process is transmitted to sites in third countries, this is done on the basis of standard contractual clauses.
Facebook Business Tools
We use the Facebook Pixel on our website, a Facebook Business Tool from Facebook Ireland Limited (Ireland, EU). For information on Facebook Ireland's contact details and the contact details of Facebook Ireland's data protection officer, please refer to Facebook Ireland's data policy at www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
- Information about actions and activities of visitors to our website, such as searching for and viewing a product or purchasing a product;
- Specific pixel information such as the pixel ID and the Facebook cookie;
- Information about buttons clicked by visitors to the website;
- Information present in HTTP headers, such as IP addresses, web browser information, page location, and referrer;
- Information about the status of disabling/restricting ad tracking.
Some of, this event data is information stored in the device you are using. In addition, cookies are also used via the Facebook pixel, through which information is stored on your end device used. Such storage of information by the Facebook pixel or access to information already stored in your end device will only occur with your consent.
Tracked conversions appear in the dashboard of our Facebook Ads Manager and Facebook Analytics. We may use the tracked conversions there to measure the effectiveness of our ads, set Custom Audiences for ad targeting, Dynamic Ads campaigns, and analyze the effectiveness of our website's conversion funnels. The features we use through the Facebook Pixel are described in more detail below.
Processing of event data for advertising purposes
Event data collected via the Facebook Pixel is used for targeting our ads and improving ad delivery, personalizing features and content, and improving and securing Facebook products.
For this purpose, event data is collected on our website by means of the Facebook pixel and transmitted to Facebook Ireland. This only takes place if you have previously given your consent to this. The legal basis for the collection and transmission of personal data by us to Facebook Ireland is therefore Art. 6 (1) a GDPR.
This collection and transmission of event data is carried out by us and Facebook Ireland as joint controllers. We have entered into a joint controller processing agreement with Facebook Ireland, which sets out the distribution of data protection obligations between us and Facebook Ireland. In this agreement, we and Facebook Ireland have agreed, among other things,
- that we are responsible for providing you with all information pursuant to Art. 13, 14 GDPR about the joint processing of personal data;
- that Facebook Ireland is responsible for enabling data subjects' rights under Art. 15 to 20 of the GDPR with respect to personal data stored by Facebook Ireland after the joint processing.
You can access the agreement concluded between us and Facebook Ireland at www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum.
Facebook Ireland is the sole controller for the subsequent processing of the transmitted event data. For more information about how Facebook Ireland processes personal data, including the legal basis on which Facebook Ireland relies and how you can exercise your rights against Facebook Ireland, please see Facebook Ireland's Data Policy at www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
Processing of Event Data for Analytics Purposes
We have also engaged Facebook Ireland to prepare reports on the impact of our advertising campaigns and other online content based on the Event Data collected through the Facebook Pixel (Campaign Reports) and to provide analysis and insights about users and their use of our website, products and services (Analytics). We transfer personal data contained in the Event Data to Facebook Ireland for this purpose. The submitted personal data is processed by Facebook Ireland as our processor to provide us with the campaign reports and analytics.
Personal data is only processed for the creation of analyses and campaign reports if you have previously given your consent to this. The legal basis for this processing of personal data is therefore Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. A transfer of data to Facebook Inc. in the USA cannot be excluded. . Please note the information in the section "Data transfer to third countries".
Scope of data collection
The controller has integrated components (plug-in) of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to make new business contacts.
With each individual call of our website, which is equipped with a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), this component causes the browser used by the data subject to download a corresponding representation of the component from LinkedIn. As part of this technical procedure, LinkedIn receives knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting with each call to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject activates a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to LinkedIn, this can be prevented by logging out of your LinkedIn account before visiting the website. Further information on LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at developer.linkedin.com/plugins.
Purpose of data collection & legal basis
The collected data will be stored for 2 years, after which it will be deleted. If you revoke your consent, no more data will be collected and stored after your revocation. However, the revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
Possibilities to prevent the collection of data
Unless you give your consent in the cookie banner, no collection and storage of the data specified in this paragraph will take place in this context.
Use of Youtube videos
This website uses the Youtube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider "Youtube", which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").
The website is hosted by SysEleven GmbH and Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited as technical service providers on our behalf and according to our specifications.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
