Data protection on the Internet
Data protection at KiM GmbH

For KiM GmbH, the protection of your privacy is a matter of the highest importance. It is therefore self-evident to us that, when you visit our website, your personal data must be collected, processed, saved and used in compliance with the applicable laws on data privacy protection. We will use your personal data only within KiM GmbH in order to support and expand our business relationship with you and to the extent necessary for this purpose. We will only pass your personal data to third parties outside KiM GmbH with your consent in accordance with legal regulations unless this is permissible in law even without your consent.

Our website may contain links to the websites of third parties, which are not covered by this data protection policy. KiM GmbH bears no responsibility either for the content of a website that is accessed by means of such a link or for its data protection provisions.

Contact form

When you send us requests by means of the contact form, your information from the enquiry form including the contact data given in the form is stored for the purpose of processing the request and for any follow-up questions. We will not provide this information to a third party without your consent.

The processing of any information inputted in the contact form is carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 Para 1 lit. a DSGVO). You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. An unformatted e-mail is sufficient for this purpose. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on this consent before its withdrawal.

We will retain the data you have inputted in the contact form until you request their deletion, you withdraw your consent to storage or the purpose of storing the data no longer exists (e.g. after processing of your request has been completed). Mandatory statutory regulations – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Your personal information will be handled in confidence and will only be stored and processed for the following general purposes or for other legitimate purpose provided for by applicable law:

  • Information about our products and services
  • Provision of information material
  • Provision of press information
  • Registration for an event
  • Processing of your request or provision of the requested services

When you visit our website, our Web servers will also store certain information about the hardware and software of your computer such as your IP address, the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us as well as the date and duration of your visit.

IP addresses are necessary for problem diagnosis, website maintenance and demographic information. If you visit our website, we cannot see your e-mail address, only your domain name. We can only see your e-mail address if you state this to us directly by sending an e-mail or by filling in an order form.

The Internet presence of KiM GmbH also uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard disk of your computer when you call up an Internet page, if this is permitted by your browser settings. Cookies help to prevent the repeated display of information and optimise the presentation of information on your computer system. They contain either simply a note that a certain piece of information has already been viewed once or contain data for the technical optimisation of your computer system. If you do not want to accept these cookies, you can prevent the transfer of cookies by means of the corresponding setting in your browser. In general, you do not have any further disadvantages as a result.

Google service reCaptcha

We use the Google service reCaptcha in order to determine whether a person or a computer is making a certain input in our contact or newsletter form. On the basis of the following data, Google checks whether you are a person or a computer: IP address of the end device used, the website on which you are visiting us on and on which Captcha is installed, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the browser and operating system type, the Google account if you are logged in on Google, the mouse movements on the reCaptcha pages and the tasks in which you must identify images. The legal basis for the data processing described is Article 6 Para 1 Section f General Data Protection Regulation. We have a justified interest in this data processing in order to ensure the security of our website and to protect us against automated inputs (attacks).

Collection and processing of your personal data and other information

We only collect and store personal data if you state these on your own initiative. In particular, it may be necessary that you inform us of your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number and area of activity.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and assist in performing an analysis of your use of the website. The information created by the cookie on your use of this website is generally transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

If the IP anonymisation function on this website is activated, however, your IP address is first shortened within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA under exceptional circumstances. On behalf of the owner of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and to provide the website owner with services associated with website use and Internet use.

The IP address communicated by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data by Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by means of a corresponding setting in your browser software; we must inform you, however, that in this case you will not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent recording of the data created by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) at Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link

Deletion of data

Any data we have stored that are no longer necessary for their intended purpose and for which there are no longer any mandatory legal storage periods will be deleted. If deletion cannot be carried out, since the data are required for permissible legal purposes, restrictions are applied to data processing. In this case, the data are quarantined and not processed for other purposes.
