Supplementary notes regarding use and circulation of personal data TCP Asia Pacific Co., Limited may be forced to disclose your data and corresponding details by order of a judicial or regulatory action. We also reserve the right to use your data to assert a claim or to defend against legal claims. In compliance with applicable law, we reserve the right to save and pass on personal data and any other data in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, and violations of TCP Asia Pacific Co., Limited ’s terms and conditions of use.
Secure Internet communication
We make every effort to ensure that your personal data is transmitted and saved utilizing technical and organizational measures, in such a way that it is not accessible to third parties.
As a general rule, the Internet is regarded as an insecure medium. In contrast to a telephone line, for instance, transmission of data on the Internet can be more easily wiretapped, recorded or even modified by unauthorized third parties. To ensure the confidentiality of communications with you, we use AES 256-bit SSL encryption for specific functions (login, etc.). The encryption used by us is regarded as secure, based on the latest technological advancements. Operating systems and browsers from earlier versions also achieve this security level. If necessary, you should update the operating system and browser on your PC to enable the use of this high-grade encryption.
When communicating via e-mail in an unencrypted manner, complete data security cannot be guaranteed, so we recommend using the postal service for confidential information.
Update of this data protection statement
If TCP Asia Pacific Co., Limited launches new products or services, alters its Internet procedures or if the Internet and electronic data processing security technology is further developed, the data protection statement shall be updated. We therefore reserve the right to alter or modify this statement as required. The revision will be published here.
