1. Data protection at a glance

General information

The following notes give a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website. Personal data is all information that personally identifies you. Detailed information on the subject of data protection can be found in our privacy policy referred to under this text.

Data collection on our website

Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?

The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the imprint of this website.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data will be collected when you inform us of this. This may, for example, be data that you enter in a contact form.

Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are, in particular, technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of day of the page call-up). These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected in order to ensure a trouble-free provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

At any time, you have the right to obtain free information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have a right to request correction, blocking or deletion of these data. For this purpose, and to clarify any further questions about data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to the appropriate supervisory authority.

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is carried out mainly by means of cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Detailed information can be found in the following privacy policy.

You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about the options to voice your objection in this privacy policy.

2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in conformity with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal data is information that personally identifies you. This Data Protection Declaration explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note about the responsible body

The responsible body for the data processing on this website is:: Küppersbusch Großküchentechnik GmbH & Co. KG

45883 Gelsenkirchen

Telephone: 0209 / 401-538
Fax: 0209 / 401 539 E-mail: info@kueppersbusch.com

The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (such as names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an existing consent at any time. To do this, an informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the appropriate supervisory authority

In the case of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the appropriate supervisory authority. The appropriate supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the (German) federal state in which our company is based.

4. Data collection on our website

Cookies

In part, the internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are saved on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, generally exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or activate automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e.g. the shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies are stored (such as cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour), these will be treated separately in this Data Protection Declaration.

Server log files

The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which are automatically transmitted to us by your browser. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data will not be merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us an inquiry via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provide in it, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on these data without your consent.

The data entered into the contact form are therefore processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. To do this, an informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of any data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (for example, after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.

5. Analyse tools and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics makes use of so-called "Cookies". These are text files which are saved on your computer and which allow an analysis of the utilisation of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is normally transmitted via a Google server in the USA and saved there.

The Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both their website and their advertising.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will Google transmit the full IP address to a server in the US and truncate it there. Google will make use of this information in order to evaluate the utilisation of the website in order to collate reports about your website activities for the website operator and others services associated with the utilisation of the website and internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser for Google Analytics will not be combined with other data owned by Google.

Browser plugin

You can prevent the installation of cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that, in this case, you may not be able to make use of all of the functions provided by this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the logging of the data created by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin provided at the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Objection to data collection

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.

For more information about how to handle user data on Google Analytics, see the Google Data Protection Declaration: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Order data processing

We have entered into a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

6. Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data are not collected or only voluntarily. We will use these data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and will not pass it on to third parties.

The data entered into the newsletter subscription form are therefore processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO). The granted consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of any data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data deposited with us for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter will be saved by us until your cancellation and will be deleted after cancellation of the newsletter. Data that has been stored for other purposes with us (such as e-mail addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

MailChimp

This website uses the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. The operator is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service that, among other services, can be used for the organisation and analysis of the dispatch of newsletters. If you enter data for the purposes of newsletter subscription (e.g., e-mail address), they will be stored on MailChimp's servers in the United States.

MailChimp is certified according to the "EU-US-Privacy-Shield". The "Privacy-Shield" is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

MailChimp allows us the analysis of our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent by MailChimp, a file included in the e-mail (called web beacon) connects to MailChimp's servers in the United States. In this way we can determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked onto. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g., time of opening, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the particular newsletter recipient. It is only used for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of the recipient.

If you do not want analysis by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. In every newsletter, we provide a link for this purpose. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

Data processing is based on your consent (art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by cancelling the newsletter. The legality of any data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data deposited with us for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter will be saved by us until your cancellation and will be deleted after cancellation of the newsletter both from our own servers and the servers belong to MailChimp. Data that has been stored for other purposes with us (such as e-mail addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

For details, see the Data Protection Policy of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/.

Completion of a data processing agreement

We have entered into a so-called "Data Processing Agreement" with MailChimp, in which we charge MailChimp with the protection of our customers' data and not to pass them on to third parties. This contract can be viewed at the following link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/sample-agreement/.
