We delete the data collected this way after its storage is no longer necessary, or the processing is limited if there are legal safekeeping obligations.
Collection of personal data when visiting our website
If you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. without registering or conveying information otherwise, we only collect the personal data transmitted by your browser to our server. If you want to look at our website, we collect the following data that are technically required to display our website to you and that ensure stability and safety (the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f GDPR):
– IP address
– Date and time of the request
– Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
– Content of the request (specific page)
– Access status/HTTP status code
– The respective transmitted data volume
– Website from which the request originates
– Operating system and its interface
– Language and version of the browser software.
Processing personal data
We process personal data. According to Art. 4 no. 1 GDPR, "personal data" includes all information any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (subsequently referred to as "data subject"). an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Purpose and legal basis of data processing (Art. 13 (1) c GDPR
The processing of personal data is only lawful if there is a legal basis for the processing. According to Art. 6 (1) a-f the legal basis for the processing could be in particular:
a. the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
b. processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
c. processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
d. processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
e. processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
f. processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.
Newsletter & Advertising
If you subscribe to our newsletter as a non-customer via the input mask "subscribe to newsletter", your e-mail address will be used for our internal advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Until that time it is our legitimate concern according to Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 f GDPR to solicit you regularly with the newsletter upon your request.
Even without subscribing to the newsletter, after the GDPR-EU takes effect, customers will regularly receive information, current catalogues or product information via e-mail from us. The legal basis for this is derived from Art. 7 (3) UWG in combination with Art. 95 GPDR as a "special regulation" of the ePrivacy directive (Art. 13 2002/58/EG).
The following apply equally to customers and non-customers:
They can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the unsubscribe link at the end of each e-mail. They can also object at any time with an informal email to the use of their e-mail address for advertising purposes (art. 21 GDPR). Their e-mail address will not be passed on to other companies. Our newsletter is handled by service providers (for details regarding this, see the point "Transfer of personal data to third parties"). The software used for the evaluation of the newsletter anonymously stores the user behaviour (automatically the same as other access of information via the Internet). Only the clicked hyperlinks or the opening of the newsletter itself is registered for statistical evaluation.
Profile information regarding the use of our newsletter is exclusively prepared anonymously and only serves to improve the user support and to optimally match the offer to the user interests. Individual behaviour will not be evaluated. The provision of additional personal data is voluntary and will only be used for personalizing the newsletter.
Transfer of personal data to third parties/
recipients of the data (Art. 13 (1) e GDPR)
Customer or interested party data are neither sold or traded in any other way. Similarly, no address lists are rented out and no advertising by third parties sent our under their own name to the subscriber. If we provide an advance concession, e.g. for purchases via invoice, we maintain our legitimate interests by obtaining information about the credit-worthiness of the customer based on mathematical-statistical methods from Creditreform, Reutlingen Degener KG, P.O.Box 7065, 72734 Reutlingen, Germany. For this purpose, we transfer the personal data required for a credit assessment to the above-stated company and use the received information regarding the statistical probability of a payment default for a calculated decision about the basis, implementation or ending of the contractual relationship. For performance of the contract we work closely with some partner companies and individual persons who we assign with the performance of some of our obligations. We provide them with access to the required data as part of the performance of the contract. They may not use this data for other purposes. They are also obligated to comply with these data protection regulations and data protection legislation. Examples include logistics companies that naturally need to know the delivery address or payment service providers. There are order processing contracts acc. to Art 28 GDPR with companies to which we transfer your data for deliveries. Depending on the payment service provider you select in the order process, we transfer for the handling of payments the collected payment data to the credit institution assigned with handling the payment and, if applicable, to payment service providers assigned by us or the selected payment service. In part, the selected payment service providers collect this data themselves if you set up an account with them. In this case, you have to register with the payment service provider during the order process with your access data. The data protection declaration of the concerned payment service provider applies. Other than that data are passed on to third parties only with the approval of the data subject. Insofar as we commission external service providers for the technical implementation of the data processing, they will only act upon our instructions and based on our prerequisites that are specified by a contract for commissioned data processing (Art. 28 GDPR).
Period of storage and erasure of the data, right to object and access (Art, 13 (2) a) and b) GDPR)
The storage period depends on the legal requirements and the purpose of the data storage. If the purpose of the data processing is no longer valid, the data are erased. Other than that, collected personal data are generally erased if the approval is withdrawn, the data are verifiably wrong, the data was collected unlawfully or if legal requirement no longer prescribe data storage (e.g. for invoices older than 10 years).
If there is no legal reason for storage, every data subject has the right to rectification or erasure (Art. 16, 17 GDPR), the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR), the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR) of their personal data, as well as the right to object (Art. 21 GDPR|).
If the data subject has issued a declaration of consent, he/she can withdraw this consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal; (Art. 13 (2 ) c) in comb. with Art. 7 (3) GDPR).
On request, every data subject has access to the information of which personal data concerning him/her are processed by KEMMLIT (Art. 15 GDPR).
Within the scope of our processing, your personal data are not subjected to automated decision-making, including profiling (Art. 13 (2) f) GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 13 (2) d GDPR)
Each data subject has, without prejudice to any other legal remedy, the right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority.
