Privacy Policy

We at kielia.de respect your privacy. This privacy policy explains how we receive, process and protect information from and about you.

A central term of the underlying European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is personal data. Your personal data means any information that relates to you. This includes e.g. your name, email address, street address and telephone number, but also records of your internet activities and interests.

Access data

In general, you can access our website without disclosing any personal data. Data submitted by your browser to request a certain content are recorded by our web server (“server log file”). They include the network address (domain or IP address) of your computer, date and time, requested file, referring page, and other technical data. Your network address is automatically anonymized by our web server such that we cannot identify individual users. The anonymized server log files are evaluated for error analysis and for optimizing our web services.

Submission of personal data

While using kielia.de, you may choose to submit information to us through email or contact form. All information that we receive from you is stored on our communication system to handle your request, and for later reference. Your data are not passed on to third parties for other purposes such as advertising.

We use encryption and other technical and organizational measures to secure our networks. However, we cannot guarantee privacy of online communications.

Cookies

We may use cookies for kielia.de. Cookies are small datasets which are stored in your browser. They enable us to remember information about your visits to kielia.de and thus improve your user experience. The maximum lifetime of these cookies is one year.

If you prefer not to receive cookies from kielia.de, you can adjust your browser’s settings to block cookies, or to accept them only on confirmation from you. Please note that some functions of kielia.de may thus be restricted. You can delete received cookies at any time.

Third party contents

kielia.de may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, fonts, etc.) from other websites. It behaves in exactly the same way as if you had visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

All social share buttons used on kielia.de are hosted on our own web server and provide a link to the respective social network. As with other links, you will be redirected to a page of the social network when you click the corresponding share button. Only in this case can the social network collect data about your visit to kielia.de.

Your rights

At any time, you can request information about which personal data we have stored about you. In addition, you have the right to rectification and erasure of  your personal data. If statutory retention periods or other rights conflict with the erasure, you have the right of restriction of processing.

Our contact information is available on the contact page. For complaints, you have the right to contact the Independent Centre for Privacy Protection Schleswig-Holstein or any other supervisory authority.

Legal bases

The processing of access data, the use of cookies and the use of third party contents are based on a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the secure and functional operation of kielia.de.

When you contact us and request that we provide certain services for you, these activities require that we process your personal data. This generally takes place for the performance of a contract (aka provision of the requested services) according to Art. 6 (1) b GDPR.
