© 2020 World Scientific Publishing Company. Given a planar quadratic differential system delimited by a straight line, we are interested in studying the bifurcation phenomena that can arise when the position on the boundary of two tangency points are considered as parameters of bifurcation. First, under generic conditions, we find a two-parametric family of quadratic differential systems with at least one tangency point. After that, we find a normal form for this parameterized family. Next, we study two subfamilies, one of them characterized by the existence of two fold points of different nature, and the other one, characterized by the existence of one fold point and one boundary equilibrium point. For the first family, we find sufficient conditions for the existence of stationary bifurcations: saddle-node, transcritical and pitchfork, while for the second family, the existence of the called transcritical Bogdanov-Takens bifurcation is proved. Finally, the results are illustrated with two examples.
