Privacy Policy

Kuemmerling KG (hereinafter “we”) respects your privacy. As the protection of your personal data such as your name, date of birth, address, telephone number and e-mail address is of the utmost importance to us, we strictly comply with the relevant provisions of data protection laws and the following principles. We also adhere to the principle of data avoidance and data economy, which means that we collect, process and use as little personal data as possible.

1. Personal Data and Consent

We will collect, process and use your personal data to the extent necessary to establish, conduct or end a contractual or quasi-contractual customer relationship.
"Otherwise we will only collect, process and use your personal data if you have given us your express prior consent. Your personal data is used only for the purpose and to the extent specified in your declaration of consent (for example, enquiries made using the contact form).
Thus for example, only when we have your permission to do so, will we send you information about our products and services, reply to your enquiries, send you information you have requested or advise you of offers."

You may withdraw your permission at any time with future effect. When we receive your written notice of withdrawal of consent we shall delete your data.
Please send the notice of withdrawal to the following address:

2. Automatically Generated Data

Your use of our websites can result in the automatic processing of personal data (name of your provider, IP address, browser type, operating system and websites you have visited including any search terms). In such cases, this data is processed anonymously, i.e. it cannot be traced back to you (=identification).

3. Information Automatically Stored On Your Computer (“Cookies”)

Use of our website can lead to the creation of small text files that are stored on your computer (cookies). We use cookies to simplify and improve use of our website.

Our cookies allow us to identify repeat users as such during their visits to our website without any personal data being stored in the process.

The data stored in persistent cookies (for 2 years) is used to make your future visits to our website as convenient for you as possible and will only be used for this purpose. Deactivating these cookies does not affect the functionality of our website.

The data stored in session cookies is only valid for your current session on our website and is used to enable you to enjoy unrestricted use of our services and make your current visit to our website as convenient as possible.
If you deactivate session cookies, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by changing your browser settings (information on this can be found in the Help function in the menu bar of your Internet browser) or by refusing your consent for the collection and storage of data for the future. Cookies already stored on your computer can be removed by deleting temporary websites.

4. Third-Party Access To Your Personal Data

The collection, processing and use of your personal data is carried out by us and – unless we have explicitly excluded this possibility - by other companies belonging to the Henkell Group (Group company) or service providers employed by us.
In these latter two cases, we will ensure that Group companies and service providers comply with the relevant statutory data protection rules and the obligations arising from this privacy statement.
Service providers may be hired, for example, for sending goods, advertising materials or in the case of competitions.

Otherwise, no third-party has access to your personal data.
In particular, we will not sell, market or otherwise disclose your personal data to third parties. We have also bound over our employees to maintain confidentiality and to protect your privacy.
We will process the data and in particular transmit it to government bodies and law enforcement agencies only if this is necessary to comply with legal or judicial obligations.

5. Security

We have put technical and organisational measures in place to protect your personal data from loss, manipulation, theft or access by unauthorised third parties. These security measures are permanently optimised in line with technological developments.
However, we point out that the electronic transmission of data (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security flaws.
Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

6. Children

We have absolutely no interest in gathering the personal data of children and young people below the age of 18. We strongly suggest that all parents and guardians show children and young people how to use personal data in the Internet safely and responsibly. We do not knowingly gather or use in any way personal data of children and young people.
If we become aware that such data has been sent to us without the consent of the parents or guardian, we delete it without delay. Here, of course, we depend on you as parents or guardians to inform us.
Furthermore, we make a particular effort not to appeal to children and young people with the design of our website and the products presented there.

7. Deletion And Blocks

We will delete your personal data once the business purpose associated with the data ceases to exist or if required to do so by the relevant data protection regulations. Thus for example, we will delete data collected for a competition after it has ended, unless you have consented to any collection, processing and use of your data beyond this purpose. If you have given your consent, we will delete your data if you revoke your consent or if the reason for consent ceases to exist.

At your request we will block personal data either wholly or in part. For this purpose, you must inform us which information you wish to have blocked and for how long. As far as is technically possible, you can prevent the processing and use of your data for certain areas in this way.

8. Hyperlinks

Our websites may contain hyperlinks, i.e. electronic links to the websites of other companies. Our privacy policy does not apply to these linked websites, which are governed solely by the privacy policy of the provider of the linked pages.

9. Changes To This Privacy Policy

We always keep this privacy policy up to date. Hence it can be necessary to adapt it to changed parameters of a factual or legal nature. You accept such changes by using our website.

10. Right To Information, Questions And Remarks

If you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you want to ask for information or request the correction or deletion of data, please contact:
