Privacy Policy

Our aim is to provide you with the best information around our company Tecia AB and the topics secure messaging, encryption, privacy, internet security, and especially our secure instant messenger, the mobile app Quano.

Unlike others, we try to achieve this goal without collecting excessive data about our website visitors. The short version is as this: Unless you put in data in the contact form, we do not collect any data about you. Period. For more details, keep on reading.

For any saving of customer data, the data protection und data privacy is important to us. This privacy policy explains, which information is saved about you and how we use this information. We note that by using our website, you accept our terms of use and with them this privacy policy. Our privacy policy is in accordance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the European Union.

§1 Type of compiled and saved data

  1. Typically, web hosting providers collect quite some data about the website users, with any access of any page. This data typically includes your ip address, the called page or data file, the calling site, date and time of the respective call, how long you stay on the page, the amount of transferred data, a code if the transfer was successful or not, as well as information about your browser and your operating system. However, we asked our web hosting provider not to collect any data about the users of this website, and they agreed to this. So, to the best of our knowledge, no data is collected about you, unless you put in information in the contact form.

  2. In order to establish a connection of highest security, by standard this connection is performed using the HTTPS protocol, which is in accordance with the current security standard. Despite this high security standard we cannot exclude hacker attacks to this connection.

  3. If you put in information in the contact form, this data will be sent to us via email. We may respond to what you have written shortly or later. This means, we can save your message for later use. If you do use the contact form, the email address and the message are required fields, since we otherwise cannot respond to your message. Use of  the contact form, and the corresponding input of information that personally identifies an individual during this input, like the input of your name, address, phone number or email address, is always voluntary on this website.

§2 Use, Storage, and Transfer of the collected data

  1. If you do not use the contact form, no data will be collected about you.
  2. If you use the contact form, one can generally assume that you want to have a reply. Therefore, if you put in information into the contact form and submit it, you agree, that your data is used in a way that allows replies to your message. Especially, you agree, that this website sends your message and data to our head of board by email, and that named head of board can transfer your message to one or more other individuals within Tecia AB that appear to be an appropriate fit. For example, if you have a question about pricing, a message could be passed on both to individuals inside Tecia AB working with sales, those working with marketing, and individuals above, like our CEO.

  3. As described in §2.2, information that you put into the contact form will be sent to our head of board by email, and then possibly sent on to other individuals inside Tecia AB. Both the sending process, and the storage of the emails, is handled by our web hosting provider, the Swedish company MissHosting.

  4. Information that personally identifies you and is put into the contact form will not be transferred by us to any other third party, unless this is stated elsewhere in this privacy policy, this is part of an agreement between the user and us, this happens after explicit consent by the user, or this is required by law or is necessary within a legal dispute.

  5. You have the right to know, which data we save about you. It’s simple: We only save the data you put into the contact form. If you do not use it, we do not save any data about you.

§4 Storage Length and Deletion of data

  1. If you put in information into the contact form and submit it, it can be reasonable for us, to reply multiple times to your message, at different times. For example, if you ask about a specific feature, we may first reply that the feature does not yet exist. But after some time, we may have implemented that feature, and it is reasonable, to let you know that your desired feature now exists. To allow late replies as described or similar, we generally do not delete your messages at all, unless you ask us to do so.

  2. You have the right to ask us, what data we store about you via this website (but it’s simple: only what you put into the contact form). You also have the right to ask us to delete any information we have about you. To do either of these, you can either use the contact form with appropriate text or send us an email with appropriate text to feedback at [website name]. Instead of [website name], use – we just want to make it more difficult for automatic spam bots to send us messages.

§5 Cookies

  1. Unlike other websites, we do not want to collect excessive data about you. Therefore, we do not use any cookies on this website.

§6 Validity and change of this privacy policy

  1. New content, functions, analysis functions, legal constraints or mistakes in our terms of use can make it necessary to revise or complement this privacy policy. Additionally, a purely linguistic revision of this privacy policy could appear reasonable. Therefore, we reserve the right to revise or complement this privacy policy at any time. This privacy policy is valid from the time it is published on this website, until it is replaced by a new version that is published on this website.

  2. Since we in general do not have contact data of our users, we cannot and will not send any message to the users when a new version of this privacy policy comes into effect.

  3. The date (according to Swedish time) of the latest revision of this privacy policy can be found at the end of this privacy policy.

  4. Should individual paragraphs, subparagraphs or formulations of this privacy policy contradict applicable law, then all other paragraphs, subparagraphs or formulations of this privacy policy still remain valid.
