As soon as this plugin is loaded on your computer the data of your site visit that may include the IP-address allocated to your computer is transmitted to Facebook without our knowledge. In case you are logged in at your Facebook account, Facebook may allocate the data of your site visit to your Facebook account for use in the Facebook network. The same applies to the data of your interaction with the Facebook plugin on our site, such as clicking on the Facebook “Like”-button. To prevent Facebook from allocating the data of your site visit to your Facebook account, we recommend to log out of your Facebook account before loading or interacting with these plugins.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files sent and stored on your computer to analyze the use of this website by your visit. The information of your visit gained by the cookies is transmitted to and stored at severs of Google in the USA. According to our settings the last digits of the IP-address allocated to your computer within the European Union or associated countries of the European Economic Area are automatically erased before transmission. Only in exceptional cases this alteration of the IP-address takes place after its transmission to Google in the USA. On behalf of us Google will use the information of your visit for the purpose of evaluating the use and functionality of this website, further data on visits of this website and to provide other services for us with regard to this website. The IP-address allocated to your computer at the time of your visit is not allocated to individual-related data of yours.

However please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website (i.g. the shopping cart function). We hereby point out that we already at this stage activated the setting of Google Analytics to alter the IP-addresses and thus secure their anonymization in the moment of collection (so called IP-Masking).
The Stripe Checkout service (“Stripe Checkout”) is technology that makes it easier for Stripe to collect payment from individuals like you. Stripe Checkout also makes it easy for you to store a credit card or debit card (“Payment Credentials”) with Stripe for use across the TMS’ Website who’ve chosen to enable it. When you check out on group-tms.com, Stripe will ask you if you’d like them to remember you. When you allow them to remember you, Stripe will store certain identifying information, such as a password, your email address, or your mobile phone number (“Stripe Credentials”), and your Payment Credentials.
