Data protection information
Welcome to our online platform, and thank you for your interest in CHG-MERIDIAN.
This data protection policy information is here in order to let you know when we save which data, and how we collect, process, and utilize that data—while complying with all applicable European Union data protection provisions as well as German federal data protection laws and/regulations.
TESMA® is an online application created by CHG-MERIDIAN that provides authorized users with remote access to a database, especially in order to retrieve data regarding existing leasing relationships between the customer and CHG-MERIDIAN. You can also use the so-called Own Asset module to record and manage assets that are not part of a CHG-MERIDIAN lease. CHG-MERIDIAN hosts the database on its own servers. The following data protection policy statement applies solely to personal data and information that has not already been, or will not be, collected, processed and utilized within the framework of an existing leasing or contractual relationship between the user and CHG-MERIDIAN.
The contents of this website are provided solely for informational purposes, as a service by CHG-MERIDIAN. The content of these pages has been created with the greatest possible care. We make no guarantees as to the timeliness, correctness or completeness of these contents and services, or of the information on this website. We assume no liability for any potential material or immaterial damage arising as a result of the usage of incorrect or incomplete information. This does not apply in cases of willful or gross negligence, nor for cases in which our assumption of such liability is mandatory by law. We reserve the right to edit and update contents of this website without prior notice. Pursuant to Section 7, Paragraph 1 of the German Teleservices Act (TMG), we as service providers are responsible for the contents of these pages according to general law. However, pursuant to Sections 8-10 of the TMG, we as service providers are not obligated to monitor external information transmitted or stored here, nor to search for circumstances indicating illegal activity. This does not affect our obligations to remove, or block usage of, information as per general laws. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point at which we become aware of a concrete violation of law. Upon becoming aware of such legal violations, we will remove the content in question immediately.
Collection and processing of personal data
We only collect and store personal data you share of your own volition, for example in order to carry out an order (e.g., a leasing order), complete a survey, register for personalized service, or document or manage your own equipment. In such cases, we will inform you of our intended purpose in processing this data, and request that you authorize its storage if necessary.

Links to external sites
CHG-MERIDIAN AG websites and applications contain links to websites that are operated by third parties, and whose content we have no influence over. As such, we can assume no responsibility for this external content. Any linked online content is the responsibility of that page’s provider or operator. At the time the links were created, all linked pages were checked for potential legal violations. No unlawful content was evident at the time the links were created. However, continuous monitoring of linked websites is not reasonable without concrete reasons to suspect a violation of law. Should any such legal violations become known to us, we will remove the links in question immediately.
