1. What data do we collect from You
1.1 Collection of personal data when You visit T4E’s Website
Every time You visit our T4E’s Website, our system automatically collects data from the system of the computer accessing the T4E’s Website. The following data are collected:
- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- The amount of data transferred in each case

The data will be stored for a maximum of 6 weeks and deleted after. The host name and the IP address of the user are anonymized, meaning an assignment of the log data to an IP address and thus to the user is not possible.

1.3 Contact Form
On the T4E’s Website, we provide a contact form which You can use to contact us electronically. In doing so, the data You enter in the input mask are transmitted to us and stored. Insofar the data processing is carried out for the purpose of fulfilling Your inquiry, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6.1 (b) of the GDPR. Other data will only be processed for technical or safety reasons (e.g. abuse prevention and ensuring our system security). Article 6.1 (b) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing, as we have a legitimate interest in the integrity of our website.
All of the above data will be deleted as soon as we have processed Your request and further clarification is no longer necessary. The deletion is subject to any legal obligations and rights. After contacting us, You can withdraw Your request at any time and object to further processing of Your data.
1.4 Google ReCaptcha
To ensure sufficient data security during the transmission of forms, we use in certain cases the service reCAPTCHA of the company Google Inc. This serves primarily to differentiate whether the entry is made by a natural person or abusively by machine and automated processing. The legal basis for this is Article 6.1 (f) of the GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in protecting our website from abusive phising and spam.
2. How do we use Your data?
T4E takes reasonable steps to ensure that Your data are and remain relevant to its intended use.
T4E uses the data collected about You for the following general purposes:
- to communicate with You in general;
- to respond to Your questions and comments;
- to measure Your interest in our products, services, and in the T4E’s Website and to improve them;
- to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities;
- to notify You about our special offers - if You have given Your explicit consent or if there is any other legal basis for doing so -, products or services or those of our partners that may be of interest to You;
- to solicit information from You i.e. through surveys;
3. With whom do we share Your data?
All the personal data that You provide to us will remain strictly confidential.
We do not pass on personal data to third parties. As a rule, this is only done if the data subject concerned has given its consent or if we use so-called "processors". The processors are external service providers who act on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions (Article 4 (8) of the GDPR).
However, T4E may share Your data with affiliates of T4E and with the toll charging authorities, insofar as this is covered by Your consent or by legal bases. Your data will not be passed on to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
We ensure data protection in the event of commissioned processing by ensuring that our processors provide sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in such a manner that processing will meet the requirements of this Regulation and ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject (see Article 28 of the GDPR).
Only in exceptional cases personal data is transmitted to third parties and/or recipients outside of commissioned processing. This is done solely in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and only if an appropriate legal basis is available (e.g. Article 6.4 of the GDPR).
We may also disclose your data if disclosure is necessary to comply with legal requirements.
We - or, in the case of commissioned processing, our service providers - only process personal data in countries within the EU or the European Economic Area that are subject to the scope of the GDPR.
A transfer of personal data to so-called "third countries" is possible in exceptional cases when using commissoned processors or other service providers. "Third countries" are countries outside the European Union and/or the Agreement on the European Economic Area which cannot automatically be considered to have an adequate level of data protection in accordance with EU standards.
Prior to such a transfer, we shall ensure an adequate level of data protection in the respective third country or at the respective recipient in the third country in accordance with Articles 44 ff. of the GDPR is guaranteed, for example by the existence of a so-called "adequacy decision" of the European Commission or by the use of so-called "EU standard contractual clauses". If a recipient of personal data is located in the USA, the principles of the so-called "EU-US Privacy Shield" can also ensure an appropriate level of data protection. We will be happy to provide you with further information on the appropriate and appropriate guarantees for maintaining an appropriate level of data protection upon request; the contact details can be found at the beginning of this data protection information. Information on the participants of the EU-US Privacy Shield can also be found here www.privacyshield.gov/list.
4. Your choices with respect to the collection and use of Your data
As discussed above, You can choose not to provide us with any personal data. Note, however, that some data may be needed to take advantage of certain features offered on the T4E’s Website.
5. How do we protect Your data?
We want You to feel confident about using the T4E’s Website, and for that reason we are committed to protecting the data we collect from You. We have implemented significant and appropriate technical and organizational measures to help protect the personal data that You provide to us from certain risks such as unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
However, You must remember that the Internet is a global communications vehicle open to threats, viruses and intrusions from others. Hence, we can not guarantee that we will be able to protect Your personal data at all times and in all circumstances.

7. Data protection in our contracts and General Terms and Conditions
If you are our contractual partner, we have provided the essential information regarding data processing of your personal data as Controller in our contracts and/or our General Terms and Conditions ("GTC"). The following information therefore only supplements our contracts and our General Terms and Conditions. If you have any further questions, please contact us at the contact details given in the introduction above.
With the collection of the personal data received in the context of the conclusion and execution of the contract we pursue the purpose of being able to fulfill our obligations from the contract. For example, we need Your contact details to provide You with our services.
We also use the data to support You as a customer and for statistical market and opinion research purposes. This is necessary to continuously improve our products and services and to adapt them to the needs of our customers. We only advertise directly if You have given your consent or if there is another legal basis for this according to the Union law of the member states. In the case of given consent, the legal basis for the aforementioned data processing is Article 6.1 (a) of the GDPR, insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract and the implementation of pre-contractual measures Article 6.1 (b) of the GDPR, in all other aforementioned cases Article 6.1 (f) of the GDPR (protection of legitimate interests), whereby our legitimate interest is the marketing and continuous improvement of our products and services and their adaptation to the needs of our customers.
We only store personal data as long as this serves a legitimate purpose. If the purpose of the processing no longer applies, we have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that personal data are deleted or that they are made unrecognisable or restricted. We will store data after the processing purpose has ceased only if this is provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which our company is subject. Such cases are e.g. the existence of justified interests in a storage, for example during the course of limitation periods for the purpose of legal defence against possible claims or e.g. the fulfilment of legal storage obligations. If the aforementioned further storage is no longer covered by the aforementioned standards, we will immediately delete the data or restrict their processing, unless the further storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion of a contract or for other purposes.
In particular, You have the right to withdraw Your consent to the collection and further processing of data on the basis of Your consent. The data processing required for the performance of the contract or the execution of pre-contractual measures is not subject to any right of objection; you can file an objection against the data processing for legitimate interest in accordance with Section 9.
With regard to our direct advertising, we refer to Your right of revocation (in the event of consent given) and to Your right of objection pursuant to Section 9 below (framed).
