TEC-IT Websites are using cookies. A cookie is a small file, which is stored by the web-server on your computer/hard drive. Cookies cannot be used to execute programs or to spread viruses. Cookies are assigned to a specific user of a TEC-IT Website. One of the major reasons for using cookies is to improve the usability of Websites and to save time. The user of TEC-IT web pages has the option to accept or reject cookies. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. However, browsers can be set by the user to only allow cookies from certain web pages. If the user decides to reject cookies from TEC-IT web pages, it may happen that the use of TEC-IT web pages is not or only partially possible. Certain cookies are used to identify a browser session (session cookies) and are deleted from your hard disk after the browser has been closed.

Log files

Every time you access our website, usage data is transmitted by the browser and stored in so-called server log files. The data sets that are stored contain the following data: date and time of retrieval, name of page accessed, IP address, referrer URL (origin URL from which you were redirected to our website), the amount of data transferred, product and version information of the used browser.

Subject to any legal retention requirements, users' IP addresses will be deleted after the end of use, at the latest after 30 days.

We occasionally evaluate these log file records anonymously in order to improve our web presence or to find and correct errors. In addition, we can also detect and fix any errors in our web services faster by analyzing the log files.

Google Analytics

Web Analytics Service

This website uses the "Google Analytics" service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyze users' website usage. The relationship with the web analytics service provider is based on the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) for transfers of online advertising and measurement personal data out of the European Economic Area, the UK, or Switzerland.

IP Anonymization

This site uses IP anonymization. Your IP address will therefore be shortened by Google before further use within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus used only anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage.

The (shortened) IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data provided by Google.


Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files stored on your computer that allow us to analyze the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually sent to a server from Google in the US and stored there.

For more information on how to handle user data on Google Analytics, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

Disable Tracking

You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.

You may prevent the collection of the cookie-generated and website-related information (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

As an alternative to the browser plug-in or within browsers on mobile devices, please click this link to prevent future collection of your data by Google Analytics (the opt-out only works in the browser and only for this domain). Therefor an opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again.

Google Ads

We use Google Ads, an online advertising program from Google. Google Ads uses cookies to analyze the use of the website. A cookie is set when you visit our website through a Google ad. Cookies of this type lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain webpages of our website and the cookie has not expired yet, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked through Ads advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Ads advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies Internet users.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly (see Web Analysis). Internet users who do not want to participate in conversion tracking can deactivate the Google Conversion Tracking cookie (domain "googleadservices.com") through the settings of the Internet browser used. These internet users will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Google reCAPTCHA

To prevent spam and abuse, we use the service "Google reCAPTCHA" (Version 3) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") on our websites. This function is primarily used to distinguish whether an entry (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a natural person or is abused by automated processing. For this reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor on the basis of different characteristics (duration of stay, mouse movements...). The service includes the transmission of the IP address and possibly further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses start with entering the website and run completely in the background, website visitors are not informed separately. Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting his web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.

Additional information about Google reCAPTCHA and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/recaptcha and https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Use of Social Media Plugins

We use a video viewing plugin operated by YouTube (LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, www.youtube.com). By clicking on Accept in the cookie banner of our websites (or in the video), you consent to the processing of data by the social network operator (YouTube). Only after consenting a connection is established from your browser to YouTube and data transferred to the operator of the social network. The consent remains stored in your browser via cookies. If you want to revoke your consent, click this link.

The social network receives information about your visit to our websites via the plugin. If you are logged in to YouTube, your visit can be assigned to your social network account. Any interactions with the plugin can be saved by the network operator. Information about the use of the data collected by the social network can be found on the company's website (YouTube.com) in the "Privacy Policy" section: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.


Postings and Submits

Unless you have a prior written agreement with TEC-IT that your information should be treated as confidential you agree to the following:

All information posted on or transmitted to TEC-IT Websites including, data, material, code snippets, samples, requests, comments and suggestions can be used by TEC-IT for any purpose. By sending TEC-IT any information or material, you grant TEC-IT an unrestricted, irrevocable license to use, reproduce, display, perform, modify, transmit and distribute those materials and information. You also agree that TEC-IT is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques that you send to TEC-IT for any purpose without any obligation to you.



Privacy Policy for Mobile Apps

TEC-IT's apps are designed to record data only to the minimum required extent and to protect the user's privacy. Our apps do not use in-app advertising and process data exclusively to fulfill the apps intended purpose. With the exception of anonymized crash statistics TEC-IT does not access, store or otherwise process the data which is available to an app. Data processed by an app will not be disclosed or shared with other users or third parties.

Points of Special Interest:

  • Key Logging

    Some of our Android apps (especially Barcode/NFC Scanner Keyboard, GetBlue and BluePiano) are intended (or can be configured to operate) as an alternative input method. On Android, an alternative input method replaces the standard soft-keyboard with another one and thus has the theoretical possibility to log all keystrokes. This is the reason why the Android system displays a warning when such an alternative input method is enabled by the user. This warning does not automatically imply that the app in question will log the keystrokes or exposes you to any risks and vulnerabilities.

    In short: TEC-IT apps do not log, store or disclose user input.

  • Credentials

    Some TEC-IT apps can be configured to access online services (like Google Docs or Google Sheets) to store or retrieve information. In order to access such online services the user needs to enter his credentials. The credentials are stored on the device and are used by the app exclusively for the purpose of accessing the specified online service.

    In short: TEC-IT apps use credentials only for the intended purpose.

    If your device gets lost or stolen you should be aware that this exposes you to risks and vulnerabilities. In such a case, we recommend you to change your credentials for the involved online services as soon as possible.

  • Device Information

    For volume or bulk-licensing purposes, special versions of our apps (available for download exclusively on tec-it.com) can be licensed via TEC-IT's activation server. For each single activation, this activation server records date/time, masked IP address and a hashed device ID (one of device serial number, Android ID (Android), Identifier for Vendor (iOS), IMEI). This information is treated confidential and kept private by TEC-IT.

    In short: For bulk licensing purposes, TEC-IT records masked and/or hashed device information.

  • Geolocations

    When you enable location services in our mobile apps (e.g. Scan-IT to Office), the app uses GPS or another similar technology to determine your current location. The app uses this information only for the intended purpose, the data is not used for any other purpose or shared with anyone else.

    In short: TEC-IT apps use geolocation data only for the intended purpose.

  • Sensor Data

    Some of our apps provide data collection features using sensors (e.g. NFC or devices connected via Bluetooth). The app uses this information exclusively to fulfill its intended purpose, the data is not used for any other purpose or shared with anyone else.

    In short: TEC-IT apps use sensor data only for the intended purpose.

  • Crash Statistics

    To improve and monitor performance and stability, some of our apps use Google Firebase (https://firebase.google.com/) for collecting crash statistics. This information is anonymized and does not contain personal or user information.

    In short: TEC-IT does not collect app data beyond crash and performance statistics.


Please check out the general terms, they apply in each case. If there are any questions or requests please contact us.
