2. The collection and storage of personal data and the purpose and legal basis of such activities

a) By simply visiting our websites
You can visit our websites without revealing your identity. In any case, data is collected in log files, via search engines and forms.

The following information is collected without your intervention:

  • The IP address of the requesting computer,
  • The date, duration and time of the access,
  • The name and URL of the requested file, i.e. the web pages you visit on our website,
  • The website from which the access was made (referrer URL),
  • The browser you are using and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, geographical origin, language setting and the name of your access provider,

These data are processed by us for the following purposes:

  • To enable the use of our internet offers on an ongoing basis (connection setup)
  • To improve the use of our website
  • To ensure the safety and stability of the system
  • For the technical administration of the network infrastructure and to optimise the search function on our websites
  • For abuse prosecution

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our justified interest follows from the purposes listed above for the collection of data. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your identity.

This data is stored until automated deletion. The data will be deleted when the above-mentioned purpose has ceased to apply.

In addition, we use cookies and analysis services when visiting our website. You will find more detailed information on this under sections 3 to 5 of this data protection declaration.

b) By using the contact form
You can send us general enquiries using the contact form provided on our website. All messages received via this contact form will be forwarded to the HR department of KAISER+KRAFT EUROPA where they will be processed. It is imperative that you provide a valid e-mail address or telephone number so that we can reply to your enquiry. Additional personal information such as your name, address or telephone number is not collected unless you provide this information voluntarily. This data is collected in order to know who sent an enquiry and to be able to respond to it in the way you have requested (by post, telephone or e-mail). Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntary consent or on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO or to safeguard our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. It is our legitimate interest to be able to respond to enquiries and thus guarantee a functioning customer service.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be deleted after you have dealt with your enquiry.

3. When and for what does KAISER+KRAFT EURPA use cookies?
We use cookies on a number of web pages in order to make visits to our website user-friendly and to allow specific functions to be used. A specific notice will appear in each case. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to recognise your computer next time you visit (so-called persistent cookies). These cookies allow us, for example, to welcome you with your user name, and make it unnecessary for you to enter your password again when making subsequent orders, or to fill out forms with your data. Instructions on using the cookie settings in your browser can be found here. Should you decide to refuse to allow cookies to be saved to your computer, then you will still have access to the majority of our web pages. However, under certain circumstances you may be unable to use specific functions or areas within the website.

4. Web analysis

Like many other companies, KAISER+KRAFT EUROPA also employs different methods to analyse the use of our websites. To do so, we use services provided by Google, Adobe and WiredMinds. Of course, we also ensure compliance with the German and European data protection laws.

The following tracking and targeting measures are implemented on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet needs and is continually optimised. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures in order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for you for the purpose of optimising our offer. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the relevant tracking and targeting tools:

a) Google Analytics

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

As a result of the integration of the opt-out tool, Google abridges the IP address by the last so-called octet within the member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and abridged there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of the website in order to evaluate your use of the website to compile reports about website activities and to provide other services associated with website use and Internet use for the website operator. The data will not be attributed to your person.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, or text files that are saved to your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the abridged IP address) is sent to Google servers in the USA, and is saved there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities for the website operator, and to provide other services associated with website use and Internet use.

Google will also send this information to third parties should this be legally required or to the extent that third parties are processing these data on behalf of Google.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by entering a corresponding setting in your browser software; we would like to point out, however, that in this case you may be unable to use all functions of the website to their full extent.

Furthermore, you can prevent collection of the data generated by the cookie and associated with your use of the website (incl. your IP address), and prevent processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on.

Alternative to the browser add-on, in particular for browsers on mobile end devices, you can also prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents collection of your data when visiting this website in future. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser, and only for our website, and is filed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.

By using this website, you are declaring your agreement with the use of the data about you collected by Google in the aforementioned way and for the aforementioned purpose.

The Google Analytics conditions of use can be found:

5. Plugins and tools / data transfer to third partie

a) YouTube with extended 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 an enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they view the video. However, YouTube’s enhanced privacy mode does not necessarily preclude the sharing of information with YouTube partners. YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network whether or not you’re watching a video.

When you start a YouTube video on our site, it connects to YouTube’s servers. This will tell the YouTube server which of our pages you’ve visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you can allow YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube can also store various cookies on your device after you start a video. YouTube can use these cookies to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve usability and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

If necessary, after the start of a YouTube video, further data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no control.

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Further information on data protection at YouTube can be found in its data protection declaration at:

b) Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called web fonts 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.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

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

c) Google Maps

This page uses the Google Maps map service via an API. Provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

To use the features 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 appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy retrievability of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

You will find more information on the handling of user data in Google’s data protection declaration:

d) Umantis applicant management system

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

  • to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO if the correctness of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful but you refuse its deletion and we no longer need the data but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have lodged an objection against the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO;
