3. When and for what does KAISER+KRAFT EUROPA use “cookies”?

We use cookies on various pages. In each case a separate notice is displayed. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer/end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar). Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malicious software, and are used to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website, that you have already logged into your user account or for shopping cart display. These are automatically deleted after leaving our site. Other cookies remain on your end device for a certain defined period of time. They enable us to recognize your computer the next time you visit us (so-called permanent cookies). These cookies enable us to welcome you with your user name, for example, and make it unnecessary for you to re-enter your password or fill out forms with your data for subsequent orders. This does not mean, however, that we obtain direct knowledge of your identity. Cookies are used to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions.

The data processing by cookies is necessary for the above-mentioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or so that a message always appears before a new cookie is created. However, completely deactivating cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website. You can find instructions on how to set the cookie in your browser here.


4. Web analysis

Like many other providers, KAISER+KRAFT EUROPA uses various methods to analyse the use of our websites. The tracking and targeting measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The tracking measures we use are intended to ensure that our website is designed to meet the needs of our customers and is continuously optimised. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to record the use of our website statistically and evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you.

These interests are to be regarded as justified in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking and targeting tools.


a) Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). This is an effective instrument for the evaluation and marketing of our website.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, including the shortened IP address, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our website by users, to compile reports on the activities within this website and to provide us with further services associated with the use of this website and the Internet. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

Further information on Google’s use of data, setting and objection options can be found on Google’s websites: (“Data use by Google when you use websites or apps of our partners”), (“Data use for advertising purposes”), (“Manage information that Google uses to show you advertising”).

5. Plugins and tools / data transfer to third parties

a) YouTube with enhanced data protection

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The website is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this site before they watch the video. However, the enhanced privacy mode does not necessarily preclude the sharing of information with YouTube partners. For example, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network whether or not you are watching a video.

When you start a YouTube video on our site, it connects to the YouTube servers. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing habits directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after starting a video. These cookies enable YouTube to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to gather video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

Once a YouTube video is launched, it may trigger other data processing operations over which we have no control.

YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Further information on data protection at YouTube can be found in their privacy policy at:

b) Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at and in the Google privacy policy:


c) Google Maps

To use the functions of Google Maps it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we have indicated on the website. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google’s privacy policy:


d) Umantis applicant management system

KAISER+KRAFT EUROPA uses the Umantis system from the provider Haufe for professional applicant management. Interested parties who wish to apply for job advertisements can enter their applications using the Umantis applicant management system. We would like to refer you to a separate data protection declaration, which you can find here.

Due to the further development of our website and offers above or due to changed legal or official requirements it may become necessary to change this data protection declaration.


10. Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (Google). The use includes the operating mode Universal Analytics. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyze the activities of a user across multiple devices.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at or
