The protection of your personal data is a matter of serious concern to the operators of these sites. We treat your personal data confidentially and in conformity with legal data protection regulations and this privacy statement.

As a rule, our website can be utilised without requiring the disclosure of any personal data. If and when personal data (such as name, address or email address) are collected on our sites, it is done, whenever possible, solely on a voluntary basis. These data are not transferred to third parties without your explicit consent.

We caution you, however, that the transmission of data via the internet (e.g. in email communications) can be vulnerable to security breaches. Seamless protection of the data from third-party access is not possible.

Purpose specification/Purpose of the processing

If personal data are collected, they are processed solely for specified purposes. This means that the collected data are used solely for the original purpose of the collection and are not used for any other purposes. The primary purpose for the collection, processing or use of personal data relates to consulting services and the support and conduct of purchasing and service processes. The legal ground is generally provided by your consent (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR) or in relation to the controller’s legitimate interests (point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR). The legitimate interest is the controller’s interest in maintaining an internet site as a contact point for customers and potential customers.

Accessing the website:


When anyone accesses our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is captured without any action on your part and is stored until it is automatically erased:

  • IP address of the accessing computer
  • Date and time of the access
  • Name and URL of the accessed file
  • Website from which the access originated (referrer URL)
  • Browser used and possibly the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider

We process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • To secure the trouble-free establishment of a connection to the website
  • To secure the ease of use of our website
  • To evaluate system security and stability
  • For other administrative purposes


The legal ground for the data processing is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is derived from the purposes of the data collection listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data for the purpose of identifying you.


Job applications:

Owing to the specification of purpose, reactive applications are associated solely with the advertised position. If you wish to take advantage of the opportunity to be considered for other job opportunities at TMT Taurus Meat-Trading GmbH, you should note this in your cover letter. Alternatively, you may submit an application on your own initiative, which will allow us to consider your application for various vacant positions. The data transmitted to us will be made available solely to the HR department. 

Email contact:

If you contact us by email or send queries to us, we will store your information, including the contact data you have conveyed, for the purpose of processing the query and so that we can answer any subsequent questions. We do not transfer these data to other parties without your consent. Legal ground for the processing is the taking of steps prior to entering a contract (point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR).


We send a newsletter to our customers in strict compliance with the GDPR (point (f) of Art. 6 (1)) in accordance with other laws (inter alia, Section 7 UWG [Act Against Unfair Competition]). If you do not wish to receive a newsletter, you need do no more than send a brief, informal email to the email address shown above. The legitimate interest we are pursuing in this case is the desire to inform our customers of our latest offers and products.

Use of cookies:

We use cookies on our site. Cookies are small files that your browser automatically creates and stores on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any harm to your device and do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware. The information stored in the cookie is related to the specific device that is in use. This does not mean, however, that we obtain direct information regarding your identity from it.

The use of cookies serves to make the use of our service more convenient for you. For instance, we use so-called session cookies to recognise when you have previously visited specific pages of our website. These cookies are automatically erased when you leave our site. In addition, we use temporary cookies to optimise the user friendliness of the site; they are stored for a defined period of time on your device. If you visit our site again to take advantage of our services, the site automatically recognises that you have previously visited the site and remembers what entries and settings you made at that time, so you do not have to go through this process again.

Another reason for our use of cookies is the tracking of the use of our website statistically and the analysis of the statistics for the optimisation of our service for you. These cookies enable us to determine automatically that you have previously visited our site when you make a return visit. These cookies are automatically erased after a specifically defined time.

The data processed by cookies are necessary for the described purposes in the pursuit of our legitimate interests pursuant to point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can, however, configure your browser in such a way that no cookies are stored on your computer or that you are always notified before a new cookie is created. The complete blocking of cookies can, however, mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website.

Use of Google Maps:

This site utilises an API to provide the map service from Google Maps. The provider is Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The Google Maps functions cannot be used without storage of your IP address. As a rule, this information is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site does not have any control over this data transmission. We use Google Maps in the interest of an attractive display of our online services and to enable users to find the locations shown on this website easily. This represents a legitimate interest within the sense of point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. You will find more information about the handling of user information in Google’s privacy statement:

Duration of storage:

Once the purpose for the data storage ceases to exist, the data are erased unless there are legal retention periods opposing the erasure.

Right of access:

You have the right to obtain information about your personal data at any time free of charge. We will provide this information within the legal periods (within one month/within three months for extended period (owing to complexity)). If requests from a person are obviously unfounded or if the person submits an excessively large number of requests, we will charge “reasonable remuneration” or will not provide the information (pursuant to Art. 12 (5) GDPR).

Rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, right to object and portability of data


You have the right within the scope of legally applicable provisions to:


  • Rectification (or completion)
  • Erasure (e.g. when the intended purpose no longer exists)
  • Restriction of processing (e.g. if the accuracy of the data is contested)
  • Object (e.g. in the case of previously granted consent)
  • Portability of data (e.g. if there is a change of providers)


We will be glad to answer any questions you may have; simply use the contact data shown above to get in touch with us.


Right to lodge a complaint:

In the event of infringements on data protection law, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data law protection issues is the state data protection officer of the state [Bundesland] in which the company has its headquarters
