Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. In the cookie, information is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity. Analysis tools evaluate the user behavior of website visitors and enable the operator of a website to optimize it and adapt marketing measures. Plugins and other third-party elements are used to integrate content from these providers into the website.

a) Required first party cookies

The use of our required first-party cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. Thus, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after you leave our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made, so that you do not have to enter them again.

This data is deleted after 6 months at the latest.

We process their data based on our legitimate interest in the external presentation of our company via the website you accessed and to promote user-friendliness. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Most browsers accept these cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before such a cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may result in the website not being displayed correctly or you not being able to use all the functions of our website.

The respective function descriptions, any recipients of the data, information on possible transfers to a third country and the storage period can be found in the following notes on the individual processing processes provided with third-party cookies, plugins or other third-party elements. Further details on cookies can be found under item "8. Cookie details" in this privacy policy.

(1) Google Analytics

For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of the TMC websites, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies are used. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website such as.

  • Browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server request,

are transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
Google also uses the collected data for its own purposes. You can find Google's privacy policy and terms of use at   

(2) Integration of Google Maps

This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider of the map service is Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter "Google"). 

The integration of this plug-in by TMC takes place by way of the so-called two-click method in order to protect visitors to the website as best as possible. This means that your personal data (in particular your IP address) is not already transmitted to Google when you call up the website. Rather, the embedded map must first be activated by a click. With this click, consent is given for the map to be loaded with the TMC company location and thus for data to be transmitted to Google. 

The given consents can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. To do this, the settings must be changed via the corresponding button under the map. Failure to grant or revocation of consent may result in the cards not being displayed.

As a rule, the information is transmitted to a Google server in a non-anonymized form and stored there. 

Google also uses the collected data for its own purposes. You can find Google's privacy policy and terms of use at
