Data processing when visiting the KAEFER website

When you visit the KAEFER web­site, the browser on your device auto­mat­ic­ally sends in­form­a­tion to the server on our web­site. This in­form­a­tion is tem­por­ar­ily stored in a so-called log file. The fol­low­ing in­form­a­tion is re­cor­ded without your in­ter­ven­tion and stored for a short time only:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which access is made (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.

The afore­said data will be pro­cessed by KAEFER for the fol­low­ing pur­poses:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection of the KAEFER website,
  • Ensuring the KAEFER website is user-friendly,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability, as well as
  • For other administrative and statistical purposes.

The legal basis for data pro­cessing is Art­icle 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. f DSGVO. KAE­FER’s le­git­im­ate in­terest fol­lows from the pur­poses lis­ted above for data col­lec­tion. Un­der no cir­cum­stances does KAEFER use the data col­lec­ted for the pur­pose of draw­ing con­clu­sions about you per­son­ally.


Data processing when using the contact form

There are two con­tact forms on the KAEFER web­site with which you can get in touch with KAEFER. On the one hand a con­tact form for en­quir­ies of any kind, on the other hand a con­tact form for on­line ap­plic­a­tions as sub­con­tractor for KAEFER.

In the stand­ard con­tact form, the fol­low­ing man­dat­ory fields must be filled in: name, e-mail ad­dress. In the con­tact form for the on­line ap­plic­a­tion as sub­con­tractor you can ap­ply dir­ectly to the rel­ev­ant op­er­a­tional KAEFER com­pany. In this spe­cific con­tact form, there are the fol­low­ing man­dat­ory fields: name, ad­dress, e-mail ad­dress. A valid e-mail ad­dress is re­quired so that KAEFER knows who sent the re­quest and to en­able KAEFER to re­spond to it. Ad­di­tional in­form­a­tion may be vol­un­tar­ily entered by you as a vis­itor/​in­quirer in the con­tact forms.

Data pro­cessing for the pur­pose of mak­ing con­tact, as de­scribed above, is car­ried out in ac­cord­ance with Art­icle 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. a DSGVO and with your vol­un­tary con­sent. This is pro­ceeded by the tech­nical op­tion of giv­ing con­sent by cross­ing a so-called check­box (opt-in). By cross­ing the box, you as a vis­itor give your con­sent to KAEFER by send­ing the con­tact form to­gether with your data.

The per­sonal data col­lec­ted by KAEFER for the use of the con­tact form will be auto­mat­ic­ally de­leted from the web­site after your re­quest has been pro­cessed.  

Your enquiry / application as a subcontractor will be forwarded internally within the KAEFER Group for processing. This also takes place on the basis of the aforementioned consent. Your request/application as a subcontractor will be processed and stored in the normal course of business and deleted in accordance with legal requirements.


Data processing with the use of cookies

KAEFER uses so-called cook­ies on its web­site. Cook­ies are small files which your browser auto­mat­ic­ally cre­ates and which are stored on your device (laptop, tab­let, smart­phone, etc.) when you visit the KAEFER web­site. Cook­ies do no dam­age to your end device, do not con­tain vir­uses, Tro­jans or any other harm­ful soft­ware. In­form­a­tion is stored in the cookie, which arise in each case in con­nec­tion with the spe­cific­ally used end-device. However, this does not mean that KAEFER im­me­di­ately be­comes aware of your iden­tity.

The use of cook­ies serves on the one hand to make the use of our web­sites more pleas­ant for you. KAEFER uses so-called ses­sion cook­ies to re­cog­nise that you have already vis­ited in­di­vidual pages of the web­site. These are auto­mat­ic­ally de­leted after leav­ing the KAEFER web­site.

KAEFER also uses cook­ies to stat­ist­ic­ally re­cord the use of the web­site and to eval­u­ate it with the pur­pose of op­tim­ising the web­site for you. These cook­ies en­able KAEFER to auto­mat­ic­ally re­cog­nise that you have already vis­ited the web­site as a vis­itor, the next time you visit the web­site. These cook­ies are auto­mat­ic­ally de­leted after a defined period of time.

The data pro­cessed by cook­ies is re­quired for the afore­men­tioned pur­poses in or­der to pro­tect KAE­FER’s le­git­im­ate in­terests and those of third parties pur­su­ant to Art­icle 6 Para. 1 sen­tence 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 a mes­sage al­ways ap­pears be­fore a new cookie is cre­ated. In this re­spect, a ban­ner will be dis­played in­dic­at­ing this op­tion. Non­ethe­less, the com­plete de­ac­tiv­a­tion of cook­ies may pre­vent you from us­ing all the func­tions of the KAEFER web­site.

If you would like to adjust the selection of the types of cookies allowed, you can use the following link to reopen the pop-up and make your changes:

Data processing with analyse-tools

KAEFER uses Google Ana­lyt­ics for the pur­pose of de­mand-ori­ented design and on­go­ing op­tim­isa­tion of the KAEFER web­site. KAEFER has a le­git­im­ate in­terest in such use within the mean­ing of Art­icle 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1, lit. f DSGVO. Google Ana­lyt­ics is a web ana­lysis ser­vice of Google Inc.  In this con­text, on the one hand an­onymised user pro­files are cre­ated and on the other hand cook­ies are used.

The in­form­a­tion gen­er­ated by the cook­ies about your use of this web­site is trans­ferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The fol­low­ing data is af­fected:

  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of the server request.

The in­form­a­tion is used to eval­u­ate the use of the KAEFER web­site, to com­pile re­ports on the web­site activ­it­ies and to provide fur­ther ser­vices as­so­ci­ated with the use of the web­site and the in­ter­net for the pur­pose of mar­ket re­search and de­mand-ori­ented design of those in­ter­net pages. The in­form­a­tion may also be trans­ferred to third parties if this is re­quired by law or if third parties pro­cess this data on be­half of the com­pany. Un­der no cir­cum­stances will your IP ad­dress be merged with other data from Google. The IP ad­dresses are an­onymised so that an as­sign­ment is not pos­sible.

You may re­fuse the use of cook­ies by se­lect­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate set­tings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full func­tion­al­ity of the KAEFER web­site. You can also pre­vent the col­lec­tion of data gen­er­ated by the cook­ies and re­lated to your use of the web­site (in­clud­ing your IP ad­dress) and the pro­cessing of this data by Google by down­load­ing and in­stalling a browser add-on.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit the KAEFER website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for KAEFER’s website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

KAEFER uses plug-ins and links on the KAEFER web­site on the basis of Art­icle 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 f DSGVO in or­der to make the KAEFER Group bet­ter known. These plug-ins and links are in­teg­rated by KAEFER by means of the so-called two-click method in or­der to pro­tect vis­it­ors to KAE­FER’s web­site in the best way pos­sible.

The KAEFER web­site makes use of the Google Maps map ser­vice via an API. The pro­vider is Google Inc. KAEFER has there­fore in­teg­rated the above-men­tioned map ser­vice into its web­site in or­der to make your jour­ney to one of our loc­a­tions as con­veni­ent as pos­sible and to al­low you to cal­cu­late your route and dis­tance. This rep­res­ents a le­git­im­ate in­terest pur­su­ant to Art­icle 6 I sen­tence f DSGVO.

To use the func­tions of Google Maps, you will however need to save your IP ad­dress. Google places
a so-called NID cookie on your com­puter. 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 trans­mis­sion. You can find more in­form­a­tion about Google's hand­ling of user data in Google's pri­vacy policy.

Be­fore the KAEFER web­site can load data from Google Maps, you must first agree to use the Google Maps ser­vices as part of the two-click method on the KAEFER web­site. You also have the op­tion of gen­er­ally switch­ing off the map ser­vice and pre­vent­ing data trans­mis­sion to Google. To dis­able this, de­ac­tiv­ate Java Script in your browser. In this case, the loc­a­tion finder can no longer be used by you.


Data security

Dur­ing your visit to the KAEFER web­site, KAEFER uses the SSL (Se­cure Socket Layer) method in con­junc­tion with the highest level of en­cryp­tion sup­por­ted by your browser. Usu­ally this is a 256-bit en­cryp­tion. If your browser does not sup­port a 256-bit en­cryp­tion, KAEFER uses a 128-bit v3 tech­no­logy in­stead. Whether a single page of KAE­FER’s web­site is trans­mit­ted in en­cryp­ted form is de­term­ined by the closed dis­play of the key or lock sym­bol in the lower status bar of your browser.

In ad­di­tion, KAEFER also uses ap­pro­pri­ate tech­nical and or­gan­isa­tional se­cur­ity meas­ures to pro­tect your data against ac­ci­dental or in­ten­tional ma­nip­u­la­tion, par­tial or total loss, de­struc­tion or un­au­thor­ised ac­cess by third parties. The se­cur­ity meas­ures are con­tinu­ously im­proved upon, in line with tech­no­lo­gical de­vel­op­ments.
