Use of Cookies

“Cookies” are small files that enable us to store information related to your device and you, the user, specifically, while you visit one of our websites. Cookies help us to determine how frequently our internet pages are accessed as well as the number of users. And they help us configure our offers so that they are as convenient and efficient as possible for you.

On the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR, we are using “session cookies” in order to optimize our website and to guarantee a convenient and undisturbed user experience. These cookies are stored exclusively for the duration of your visit to our internet pages. They are automatically deleted when you close your browser.

In addition, we use “persistent cookies” for retaining information about visitors who repeatedly access one of our internet pages. The purpose of using cookies is to enable us to offer you optimal user guidance as well as to “recognize” you and thus be able to present (as much as possible) diversified internet pages and new contents during repeated use.

Generally, we do not create an individual profile of your online activities. The content of a persistent cookie is limited to an identification number. Name, email address, IP address, etc., are not saved on the majority of our sites.

Cookies that are already active can be deleted at any time via the settings of your internet browser or other software programs. We may work together with advertising partners who help us to make our online offer more interesting for you. In this case, cookies from partner companies may also be stored on your hard drive when you visit our website (cookies from third parties).

Persistent Cookies

Persistent cookies remain on your end device after closing the browser. These cookies can, for example, save your user preferences, such as language settings, and analyze user behavior on our website. Storage duration of persistent cookies corresponds to the respective duration of the individual cookie. Afterwards they are automatically deleted.

Will My Data Be Passed On

TYC does not share, sell, transfer or otherwise disseminate your personal data to third parties and will not do so in future, unless required by law, unless required for the purpose of the contract or unless you have given explicit consent to do so. For instance, it may be necessary to pass on your address and order data to our contractors when you order products. Further information on data protection in specific services and products is available at the relevant Customer Portal.


External service providers that process data on our behalf are contractually obliged to maintain strict confidentiality as per Art. 28 GDPR.

How About Data Security

TYC takes all of the necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from being lost or misused. For instance, your data is saved in a secure operating environment which is not accessible to the public. In certain cases, your personal data is encrypted by Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) during transmission. This means that an approved encryption procedure is used for communication between your computer and the TYC servers if your browser supports SSL. Should you wish to contact TYC by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information sent cannot be guaranteed. The contents of e-mail messages can be read by third parties. We therefore recommend you send us confidential information only by post.

Changes to Privacy Notice

TYC reserves the right to change its Privacy Notice at any time with or without prior notice. Please check back frequently to be informed of any changes. By using TYC’s websites you agree to this Privacy Notice.
