Data privacy & Cookies
Data protection by TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited
Thank you very much for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited. The use of the TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited Internet pages is basically possible without entering any personal data. However, if a user wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we obtain the general consent of the person concerned.
TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.
We use the following terms in this privacy statement, among others:
(a) personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). A natural person shall be considered identifiable if he 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 one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
(b) data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

(d) Limitation of processing
Limitation of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movement of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(g) controller or data controller
The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients.
j) Third party
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor.
Consent means any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression by the data subject of his or her will in the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unequivocal confirmatory act, indicating that he or she consents to the processing of his or her personal data.

By using cookies, TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited can provide users of this website with user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.
An affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time with the appropriate setting of the Internet browser used; and this permanently prevents the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software program. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If a person deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain conditions.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the processing of personal data lies in the purposes described above. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent.
5. Collection of general data and information
The TecAlliance SEA website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a person or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used can be recorded, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-sites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. (9) times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, and page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs).
We may also use device identifiers, cookies, and other technologies on devices, applications, and our website to collect browsing, usage, or other technical information.
When using this general data and information, TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is needed (1) to correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) to optimise the content and advertising of our website, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the purposes of data processing described above.
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. A storage going beyond this is possible. In this case the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
6. Subscription to our newsletter
On the TecAlliance SEA website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The personal data that is transferred to the person responsible for processing orders for the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.
TecAlliance Asia Pacific Limited informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about company news, product introduction etc. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers to receive the newsletter.
The personal data collected as part of newsletter registration will only be used to send our newsletter. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for the processing of data by the user after registration for the newsletter is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent.
The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoke as long as needed.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user's e-mail address will therefore be stored as long as the newsletter subscription is active.
7. Possibility of contact via the website
Due to legal regulations, the TecAlliance SEA website contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us. This includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail, the personal data transmitted by the data subject shall be automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for processing the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask 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 terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified.
The data subject can revoke his/her consent to the processing of personal data. If he/she contacts us by e-mail, he/she can object to the storage of his/her personal data. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

14. The duration of storage of personal data

We inform you that the provision of personal data is in part required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.
