Protecting your personal data (hereafter referred to simply as 'data') is very important to us. In the following, we would like to provide you with extensive information on the data we will collect as you visit our website and use the services we have on offer there, and how this data is processed or used by us, as well as the technical and administrative protective measures that we have put in place.

Collection and use of your data

The scope and type of data collection depends on whether you are visiting our internet presence to find information or are making use of our services. In the event that we use third party service providers for individual functions we provide, we will inform you in detail in regards to the relevant process. We will also provide information on our criteria for determining how long we keep your saved data. Provision of your data to other third parties will otherwise only take place when required by law.

Informational use

For informational use of our websites, we collect only that personal data that is automatically provided to us by your internet browser, such as:

  • IP-address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone different to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Request contents (specific page)
  • the amount of data transferred and access status in each case (file transferred, file not found etc.)
  • Website from which the request was made
  • Browser type / version / language
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of browser software.

The data listed above is required for technical reasons, so that we can show you our website and guarantee stability and security.

Contact form

On various subpages, you can get in touch with us using the contact form Contact. The information collected using the contact form (title, surname, first name, company, telephone number, street, e-mail address, postcode, location, country), and your message, will be used solely for the purpose of answering your question. Once we are done processing your request, the information will be deleted. Data will also be saved as part of the legally required archiving of e-mail communication (e-mails are business and commerce letters), for a maximum of 10 years after being sent. However, we will save your information in the event that you sign a contract with us after getting in touch. In this case, data processing is required to fulfil the contract or to implement measures required in advance of contractual duties. Your data will be deleted when your saved data is no longer required to fulfil the contract, unless legal archiving duties require us to save it for longer.
Provision of your data to other third parties will only take place when required by law.

Contacting our employees via e-mail

You can get in touch with us by sending us an e-mail. E-mails can be sent, for example, to info@timotrans.de or to our employee’s personalised e-mail addresses. The data we receive when you send us an e-mail (for example: your name, your e-mail address and your message itself) is used solely for the purpose of processing your request. Once we are done processing your request, the information will be deleted. Data will also be saved as part of the legally required archiving of e-mail communication (e-mails are business and commerce letters), for a maximum of 10 years after being sent. However, we will save your information in the event that you sign a contract with us after getting in touch. In this case, data processing is required to fulfil the contract or to implement measures required in advance of contractual duties. Your data will be deleted when your saved data is no longer required to fulfil the contract, unless legal archiving duties require us to save it for longer. Provision of your data to other third parties will only take place when required by law. When communicating by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security. We thus recommend that you send information you wish to keep confidential by post.

Applications / job adverts

You will find job adverts on various subpages. Timotrans International GmbH & Co. KG is dedicated to ensuring that your data has the highest possible protection when you are applying for a job with us. All personal data that we collect and process as part of a job application is protected using technical and organisational measures from unauthorised access and manipulation. Nonetheless, we cannot guarantee complete data security when you apply for a job using e-mail. In particular because you will likely send your application material to us via an unencrypted e-mail. We thus recommend that you send information you wish to keep confidential by post. As soon as the application process for a particular job is complete, we will delete the applicants data.
