Every citizen has the constitutional right to decide about the use of their personal data. Our commitment to protect all personal data arises from this legal right.
Responsible body in the sense of the Data Protection Act
As the responsible body, Peter Kwasny GmbH processes your personal data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and any other relevant legal provisions. Our data protection officer can be contacted at the address below.
We instruct all our employees who come in contact with personal data to ensure they maintain confidentiality of data in accordance with the principles of the GDPR for the processing of personal data as specified in Article 5 (1) of the GDPR, in compliance with data protection requirements.
Furthermore, we have extensive technical and organisational data protection measures to protect the stored personal data in accordance with Art. 32 para 1 GDPR.
Peter Kwasny GmbH implements technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data handled by us against manipulations, loss, destruction and unauthorised access. Our security measures are constantly improved in accordance with technological developments.
Collection and processing of personal data
The website and all associated data are located on a German server (German provider).
When you visit our website, our provider stores information of a general nature in accordance with normal practice. This information (server log files) includes, for example:
- Date and time
- the pages viewed (name of the file)
- the data quantity transferred
- the site, from which you visit our site
- IP address
This data is analysed only in an anonymised form for statistical purposes and in order to improve our offer. Furthermore, we collect, process and use personal data where such data has been entered in one of our input masks by the user of the website.
In order to be able to extend and improve our website offer, we use so-called "Cookies" (small text files), which are stored on your computer when you access our homepage. This enables us to match the content of our websites to your needs in a more targeted manner and therefore improve our offer for you. You can however exclude this storage by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, if you do so, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website offers.
We use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to protect the security of your data during transmission.
When registering for our newsletter, the data you enter will be used exclusively for this purpose. Information that is relevant to the service or registration may also be sent via email.
If you contact us via email or our contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for follow-up queries.
Use and transfer of personal data
We store your personal data only if you make this available to us voluntarily, e.g. within the context of an application, registration, when you complete a form, send an email, in the context of ordering services, for enquiries or requests for material.
We use the personal data only for our own purposes in the course of customer relations, for product surveys and for marketing purposes. In the event of third parties participating in work processes which would make it necessary to temporarily transfer your data for processing exclusively for this purpose, we apply the same high standards and commit the third parties to comply with the data protection provisions within the framework of an agreement on contract data processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.
The transfer of personal data to government entities and authorities only takes place within the context of mandatory national legal provisions. We ensure that our employees, agencies and commercial partners are committed to an obligation of confidentiality.
Right to information
At your request we will provide information at any time regarding all the personal data we have stored about you. In addition, you may of course have any errors and incorrect data corrected, updated, deleted or disabled. Should any false information be stored despite our endeavours to maintain correct and up-to-date information, we will correct this at your request.
Right to object
We would like to use your data to inform you about our products, services and innovations and to be able to survey you about them. Should you not agree to the use of your data for marketing purposes, you may inform us of this informally at any time, so that we can disable your data accordingly with effect for the future.
Data is stored in an anonymised form for statistical purposes and to improve the user-friendliness of our site. Peter Kwasny GmbH websites use the tool Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (Google) to do this. Cookies are also used here to enable an analysis of your use of our websites. The information generated by the cookies on your use of our websites is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If IP anonymisation is activated, the IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or in other states having signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area before its transfer to the USA. This generally occurs prior to the transfer, but can however in exceptional cases also take place only on site. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our websites, to prepare reports on website activities and to provide us with additional services related to the use of websites and the Internet. Under no circumstances will the IP address transferred via your browser within the scope of Google Analytics be merged with other data by Google.
You can prevent cookies from being stored using the appropriate security settings in your browser software at any time. In this case, however, you may not be able to use all functions of this website.
You can however prevent the above described collection and processing of the data relating to your use of the websites by Google. To do so, you must download and install the browser plug-in available under the link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
Use of Google Maps
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have arrived on our website via an ad served by Google, Google AdWords will place a cookie on your computer which will become invalid after 30 days and will not be used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may detect that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the website of advertisers. The information is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are notified of the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that could personally identify the user.
If you do not want to implement tracking, you can refuse the required setting of a cookie by adjusting your browser settings to generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies and configure the browser settings to block cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com".
Please note that you cannot delete the opt-out cookies if you do not want to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must reset the respective opt-out cookie.
Embedded YouTube videos
We have embedded YouTube videos on our websites. The operator of the respective plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection will be made to YouTube's servers. YouTube will therefore be notified which page you visit. If you are signed in with your YouTube account, YouTube may personally customise your browsing habits. If you do not want this, you should first sign out of your YouTube account.
If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not experience cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. Please block the storage of cookies in the browser if you wish to prevent such storage.
