Data Protection

Data Protection Statement

Thank you for visiting our website and for being interested in our products and services. Kugler Maag Cie GmbH attaches great importance to the protection of your private and personal sphere. Confidentiality and complying with relevant data protection legislation go without saying for us. In the following we would like to inform you which personal data we collect when you visit our website and what we use these for.

1. Scope of Application

This privacy statement applies to the internet services of Kugler Maag Cie GmbH. It does not apply to other internet services referred to by external links. As a company under private law we are subject to the provisions of the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz / BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz / TMG).

2. The Object of Data Protection

The object of data protection is personal data. According to section 3, paragraph 1 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG), "personal data" means any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual. This includes information such as name, address, e‐mail address or telephone number. Information which cannot be traced back to a person or where this would involve a disproportionate effort does not constitute personal data in terms of the provisions of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG).

3. What Data Do We Collect?

When you visit our website our web servers store the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages you visit within our website, as well as the date and duration of your visit. We only analyze these data for statistical purposes and only in anonymized form. Every time a user accesses our website, the following data will be stored:

  • IP‐address of the enquiring computer
  • Date and time of the enquiry
  • Page accessed / name of the file accessed
  • Data volume transferred
  • Notification of successful access
  • Internet address from which the site or file was accessed or from which the desired function was requested
  • Web‐browser used

The above data including your IP address will be stored for the duration of the communication session to facilitate the use of our internet services. Your IP address will be stored a little longer to ensure IT security, in particular to protect our IT systems from misuse and attack. We reserve the right to evaluate data in anonymized form for statistical purposes and to improve our internet services. If on individual web pages you are asked to disclose personal information about yourself, you will receive a separate notice telling you why the data is to be processed. If the processing purpose requires your explicit consent, you will be asked for your approval at the designated place on the web page.

4. The Scope of Our Collecting and Processing of Data

To be able to deliver the products and services we are offering we may require personal details such as your name, address, e‐mail address, telephone or fax number. This is necessary to send you information material or ordered goods, or to answer individual inquiries. As a matter of principle: when you order a product from us or when you order a service to be delivered we will collect and store your personal data only to the degree necessary to deliver the service or execute the contract. This may require us to pass your personal data on to subcontractors that we use to perform the service or to process the contract. This may include transport/shipping companies or other service providers. Given statutory provisions we are in certain cases legally obliged to pass personal data on to third parties; e.g. in case there is a concrete suspicion of a crime or misuse of our website. In those cases we are obliged to pass on your personal data to the investigation authorities.

5. Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google“). Google Analytics also uses cookies, which are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of how you use this particular website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to prepare reports about website activities for website operators, i.e. Kugler Maag Cie GmbH, and to deliver further services related to the use of this website and the internet. Google might also pass this information on to third parties, if this is required by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other Google data. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software. We need to point out, however, that you may in this case not be able to use all the functions of this website. By using this website you are agreeing to your data being processed by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above. The collection and storage of data may be revoked at any time with respect to future services. [ ] Given the discussion regarding the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that our website uses Google Analytics with the additional “anonymizeIP()” function; i.e. IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form to prevent identification of a particular person.

6. Right to Information and Right of Revocation, Correction and Deletion

On request we will inform you at any time about your personal data stored by us. Should, despite our best efforts concerning correct and up‐to‐date data, incorrect or incomplete data be stored by us, we will promptly correct it upon request. In case you wish your data to be deleted, we will do so immediately upon request, unless statutory documentation and retention duties prohibit this. You may withdraw consent to collect and process your data at any time without stating any reasons. In this case, please contact us at the address provided under “Imprint”. Please contact us at any time if you have any further questions regarding our explanation on data protection and the processing of your personal data.
