Every website visitor’s privacy is important to Tim Consult GmbH. The following describes how your data is processed.

What is personal data?

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines in Article 4 Paragraph 1 GDPR in the definitions what is meant by personal data:

“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person; […].”


We use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Privacy statement for using Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-US. You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website.

If, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 clause 1 lit. a GDPR via our corresponding form you have expressly consented, we will use your email address to regularly send you our newsletter.

To register for our newsletter, we use what is known as the double-opt-in-procedure (DOI). This means that after your registration we will send you an email to the email address you provide, in which we ask you via a confirmation link that you confirm your subscription to the newsletter. If you do not confirm your subscription, your information will be blocked and after 1 month it will be automatically deleted. In addition, we store the IP addresses you used and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your subscription and to be able to clarify possible misuse of your personal data.

You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can cancel by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email or by email to info@timconsult.com.

Please note that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent include what are known as web beacons or tracking pixels that represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluations, we link the user profile and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Links included in the newsletter also contain these IDs. With the data obtained in this way, we create a user profile to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. In doing so, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on and draw conclusions about your personal interests. We link this data with actions you have taken on our website.

You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate unsubscribe link provided in each newsletter email or by contacting us via another contact method. The information will be stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. Following unsubscription, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.

Contact form

Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this Provision.

Online applications

If you decide to submit your application online using the website, thank you very much! This will expedite the processing of your application.  If you are applying for a specific vacancy, we will only save your application data after the end of the application procedure for this vacancy if necessary in order to safeguard our legitimate interests or with your consent. The same applies to unsolicited applications once we have established whether there are any vacancies matching your qualifications and the type of position you are seeking.

Your application data will only be used for internal application procedures. Your application data will not be used for any other purpose or forwarded to any other third parties.

Google Maps

This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
