11.Right to object
TMK takes the protection of your data very seriously. With this data protection declaration we want to inform you in a transparent manner about which personal data (“your data”) we collect, process and use about you when you visit our website and/or use our digital communications.
1.INFORMATIVE USE OF THE WEBSITE
You can visit our website and use some of our Internet documents without providing any personal information. Each time a web page is accessed, the web server simply automatically stores access data in so-called server log files that your browser automatically communicates, such as the name of the requested file, the last web page visited, the date and time of access, the browser used, the data volume transmitted, the IP address, the requesting provider, etc. The web server does not store this data. As part of the processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides us with website hosting and presentation services.
To shorten the loading time of our online presence, we also use a so-called Content Delivery Network (“CDN”), where the website is delivered via web servers of a CDN provider who works for us in the context of order processing. Access data is also collected on the provider’s web servers.
All access data is stored for a period of 7 days. This data is evaluated exclusively to ensure the smooth operation of the website, error analysis and to improve our offer. The use of a CDN provider, as well as the procedure described here, serves to safeguard our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which predominates in the context of a balancing of interests.
2.COLLECTION AND USE OF DATA FOR THE PROCESSING OF COMMUNICATIONS
We collect personal data when you contact us (e.g. via a contact form or e-mail), when you register for a user account (“TMK Account”). Which data is collected in detail and which data is mandatory and voluntary can be seen in the respective input forms.
In these cases, we collect and process the data you have provided to us in order to carry out the corresponding communications.
For the fulfillment of payments, we pass on your data to the shipping company commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the ordered service. Depending on the payment service provider you choose in the order process, we transmit the payment data collected for payment processing to the credit institution in charge of payment and, if applicable, to the payment service providers commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. In some cases, the selected payment service providers also collect this data if you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. The data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider shall apply in this regard.
Within the framework of the performance of our contracts with you, for example, with regard to our service offerings, we may pass on your data to service providers who process it on our behalf and within the framework of an existing contract for order processing between TMK and the respective service provider. Such a service provider may be, for example, the software provider that TMK uses to process contracts.
3.TMK REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT
If you leave comments or contributions, exchange information with other users, participate in digital campaigns, purchase services in the online store, borrow digital media or use our online services, registration and creation of a “TMK account” is required. To register, we process your registration data (e-mail address and password), with which you have access to personalized offers from TMK, to your consents.
a) Your personal data and the content created by you
At the time of TMK account creation, only mandatory data is provided that is absolutely necessary for the realization of our offers or any contractual relationship that may exist with you.
You can voluntarily provide further information about yourself and publish content (so-called user-generated content), such as a photo of yourself, texts in the form of blog or forum entries, discussion posts, etc. Which data is collected in detail and which data is mandatory and voluntary can be seen in the respective input forms. We process the voluntarily provided data to safeguard the prevailing common interests in a diverse exchange within the framework of our platform.
b) Personalized marketing
For marketing purposes we also use the data you provide in your user account for a personalized design of our website and internet offers, e.g. a personal homepage and profile area in which we present you with suitable offers.
c) Publication of data
If you consent to the processing of your data for the creation of a user account, other users can see the data you have left through the TMK account, such as your name or user name, your contributions, including date and time of creation and your guestbook entries.
d) Merging of data
If you have already provided personal data to another TMK service in the past and give your consent, we will merge the previously provided data with your data in the Internet services described here that require registration. The same applies in the opposite direction: If you wish to use other services on the TMKL website in the future, we would like to make your data available to these services internally via our central customer database, so that you can also use them conveniently without having to re-enter your data.
If you do not confirm your registration within 7 days, your TMK account will be deleted together with the data provided during registration. If you confirm the registration, a user account will be created in accordance with the present explanations. It is possible to delete your TMK account and your data stored there at any time and you can do so by sending a message to the contact option described below or via a function provided for this purpose in the user account.
4.GOOGLE RECAPTCHA AND GOOGLE MAPS

When using a website on which Google Maps is integrated, the Google web server also automatically collects access data in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically communicates, such as the name of the requested file, the website last visited, the date and time of the call, the browser used, the data volume transmitted, the IP address, the requesting provider, etc. When using Google Maps, Google also processes data on the use of Google Maps functions by visitors to the website.
