Peter Kwasny GmbH appreciates your visit to its website and your interest in our company and our products. We take the protection of your private data seriously and we want you to feel comfortable when visiting our website. The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us, which we take into account in our business processes. We process personal data that is collected when you visit our websites in accordance with the principles of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) while complying with the data protection regulations of the country in which the data controller is based.
All citizens have the constitutional right to determine how their personal data is used. This means that we are obliged to protect all personal data.
Responsible body within the meaning of the Data Protection Act
As the controller, Peter Kwasny GmbH processes your personal data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and all other relevant legal provisions. You can contact our data protection officer at the address below.
We train all our employees who come into contact with personal data and oblige them to comply with the data protection requirements in accordance with the principles of the GDPR for the processing of personal data, as set out in Art. 5 para. 1 GDPR.
Furthermore, we have taken extensive technical and organisational data security measures to protect the stored personal data in accordance with Art. 32 para. 1 GDPR.
Peter Kwasny GmbH uses technical and organisational security measures to protect your data managed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction and access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
Collection and processing of personal data
The website and all associated data are stored on a German server (German provider).
When you visit our website, our provider stores information of a general nature in accordance with standard practice. This information (server log files) includes, for example
- Date and time
- the pages viewed (name of the file)
- the amount of data transferred
- the page from which you visit our site
- IP address
This data is only analysed in anonymised form for statistical purposes and to improve our offer. We also collect, process and use personal data if this has been entered by the user of the website in one of our input masks.
We use so-called "cookies" (small text files) to expand and improve our website offering. These are stored on your computer when you visit our website. This enables us to customise the content of our website more specifically to your needs and thus improve our offering for you. However, you can exclude this storage by making the appropriate setting in your web browser. However, this may limit the functionality of our website offerings.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
When you register for our newsletter, the data you enter will be used exclusively for this purpose. In addition, information relevant to the service or registration may also be sent by email.
If you contact us by email or using the contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Use and disclosure of personal data
Personal data is only stored by us if you provide it to us voluntarily, e.g. as part of an application, a registration, by filling out forms or sending e-mails, as part of ordering services, enquiries or requests for material.
We only use the personal data for our own purposes in the course of the customer relationship, for product surveys and for marketing purposes. If third parties are involved in work processes that would make it necessary to temporarily pass on your data for processing exclusively for this purpose, we apply the same high standards and oblige the third party to comply with data protection regulations within the framework of an agreement on commissioned data processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.
Personal data is only transferred to state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory national legislation. Our employees, agencies and dealers are obliged by us to maintain confidentiality.
Right to information
On request, you can obtain information from us at any time about all personal data that we have stored about you. In addition, you naturally have the option of having any errors and inaccurate data corrected, updated, deleted or blocked. If, despite our efforts to ensure that your data is correct and up to date, incorrect information is stored, we will correct it at your request.
Option to object
We would like to use your data to inform you about our products, services and innovations and, if necessary, to be able to ask you about them. If you do not agree to the use of your data for marketing purposes, you can inform us informally at any time so that we can block your data accordingly with effect for the future.
Data is stored in anonymised form for statistical purposes and to improve the user-friendliness of our website. For this purpose, the websites of Peter Kwasny GmbH use the tool Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc (Google). Cookies are also used for this purpose. This enables your use of our websites to be analysed. The information generated by the cookies about your use of our websites is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If IP anonymisation is activated, the IP address is truncated by Google within the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. This is usually done before transmission, but in exceptional cases it can also be done locally. Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies at any time by selecting the appropriate security settings in your browser software. In this case, however, not all functions of this website can be used in full.
However, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data relating to your use of the website as described above. To do this, you must download and install the browser plugin available at the link(http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visualise geographical information. When you use Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about your use of the map function. You can find more information about data processing by Google in the Google data protection information(https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de). You can also change your personal data protection settings there in the data protection centre.
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advert placed by Google, Google AdWords will place a cookie on your computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the website of AdWords customers. The information collected is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their advert and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to identify the user.
If you do not want this tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this by generally deactivating the automatic setting of cookies in your browser settings and setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com".
Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
Embedded YouTube videos
We have embedded YouTube videos on our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. YouTube is informed which page you are visiting. If you are logged in with your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. If you do not wish this to happen, you should log out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to expect any such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personalised usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
