The development of the website was conceptualized with the maxim to collect as little data as possible from you. Basically, it is possible to visit our website without providing personal information. Only when you choose to use certain services (such as the contact form) will the processing of personal data become necessary. When doing so, we always take care to process your personal data only in accordance with the legal regulations or your consent. We comply with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applicable from 25.5.2018 and the applicable national regulations, such as the German Federal Data Protection Act, the German Teleservices Act or other more specific data protection laws.
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘the data subject’); a natural person is considered as being identifiable, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person;

Required fields are marked with an *.
The personal data you provide and its contents remain solely with us and our affiliates. We will store and process your data only for the purposes stated in 5. Any use exceeding the stated purpose requires your express consent. The same applies to the transmission and transfer of your data to third parties.
The web server temporarily records the connection data of the requesting computer (IP address), the pages you visit with us, the date and duration of the visit, the recognition data of the browser and operating system type used, the website from which you visit us and the successful retrieval in log files. The technical administration of the websites and anonymous statistical surveys allow an evaluation of the access to the offer of Konux and an evaluation with the aim to increase the data protection and data security in our company in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by you.
Subject to any legal retention requirements, we will delete or anonymize your IP address after you leave our website.
On our website, information is collected and stored by the use of so-called browser cookies.
What are Cookies?
These are small text files that are stored on your device and that store certain settings and data in order to share it with our system through your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier.
Cookies allow our systems to recognize the user’s device and make any presets available immediately. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transmitted to the hard disk of the user’s computer. Cookies help us improve our website and offer you a better and more personalized service. They enable us to recognize your computer or your (mobile) device when you return to our website and thereby:
We work with third party services that help us to make the website and its offers more interesting to you. Therefore, when visiting the website, cookies from these partner companies (third-party providers) will also be stored on your hard drive. These are cookies that automatically delete after the given time. A list of the cookies we set can be found in the following table:

If you do not wish to use browser cookies, you can set your browser so that the storage of cookies is not accepted. Please note that in this case you may be able to use our website only partially or not at all. If you only want to accept our own cookies, but not the cookies of our service providers and partners, you can choose the setting in your browser "block third-party cookies". We assume no responsibility for the use of third party cookies.
Our website uses content and services of third parties. These are, for example, videos provided by Vimeo. In order for these data to be accessed and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus are aware of the IP address of the respective user.
Although we strive to use only third-party providers who solely need the IP address to deliver content, we have no control over whether the IP address may be stored. This process might be used, inter alia, for statistical purposes. If we become aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform you.
Use of Google Analytics
Our website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Web analytics service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and that allow for an analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the US.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior in order to optimize our website and possibly also advertising.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization feature. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. There may be exceptions where Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the United States and truncates it there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to report on website activity, and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. There is no merger of the Google Analytics transmitted IP address with other Google data.
The setting of cookies through your web browser can be prevented. However, some features of our website may be restricted. Likewise, you can prevent the collection of data relating to your website use, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plug-in accessible via this link.
To fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have entered into a contract data processing agreement with Google.
Our website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. It can be used to generate reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. An assignment of the data to a specific person is not possible. You can disable this feature at any time. This is possible through the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section "Objection to data collection". Alternatively, you can opt out of Google Analytics using an opt-out cookie by clicking here. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you must click this link again.
Use of Vimeo
For the integration and presentation of video content, our website uses plugins from Vimeo. Provider of the video portal is the Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
When a page with integrated Vimeo plugin is viewed, a connection to the servers of Vimeo is established. Vimeo learns by this which of our pages you have viewed. Vimeo learns your IP address, even if you are not logged in to the Vimeo portal or do not have an account there. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to servers of the video portal in the USA. Vimeo can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. By logging out beforehand you have the option of preventing this. The use of Vimeo is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Use of YouTube
For the integration and presentation of video content, our website uses plugins from the Google-powered YouTube page. Provider of the video portal is the YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with an integrated YouTube plug-in, it will connect to YouTube’s servers.
YouTube will find out which of our sites you’ve visited. YouTube can directly map your browsing behavior to your personal profile, should you be logged into your YouTube account. By logging out beforehand you have the option to prevent this.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Use of Google Maps
For the integration and presentation of map content, our website uses the map service Google Maps. Provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Viewing a Google Maps integrated map page will track your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. Google will know your IP address, even if there is no user account you are logged in to. If you are logged into your user account, Google can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. By logging out beforehand you have the option of preventing this. 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 an easy findability of the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is never 100% secure, which is why we can not guarantee the security of data transmitted via the Internet to our website.
However, we secure our website through technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons.
In particular, your personal data is encrypted with us. We use the SSL / TLS (Secure Sockets Layer / Transport Layer Security) coding system. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
You can contact us by e-mail or via our contact form. In this case, we will store the personal data you provide to process your request and to contact you with respect to your request. These data will be transmitted to us on a purely voluntary basis. A passing on of the personal data communicated to us in this way to third parties does not take place.
Insofar as you are the affected person according to Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO, you have the following rights regarding the processing of your personal data under the GDPR. The EU regulation text that these rights are based on can be found here.
Right to Confirmation and Information
Under the preconditions of Art. 15 DSGVO you have the right to request a confirmation as to whether personal data of you are being processed and at any time, free of charge, to receive information from the controller regarding the personal data stored about you and a copy of these data.
Right to Rectification
Under the conditions of Art. 16 DSGVO you have the right to demand the immediate correction of incorrect personal data concerning you. In addition, you have the right, under consideration of the purposes of the processing, to demand the completion of incomplete personal data, also by means of a supplementary declaration.
Right of Deletion
Under the preconditions of Art. 17 GDPR, you have the right to demand that personal data concerning you be deleted without delay, provided that one of the reasons stated in Art. 17 GDPR exists and the processing is not required.
Right to Restriction of Processing
Under the conditions of Art. 18 GDPR, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing if one of the conditions set out in Art. 18 GDPR exists.
Right to Data Portability
Under the conditions of Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data you have provided us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer this data to another person without hindrance provided that the further requirements of Article 20 GDPR are met.
Right to Revoke Consent
You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time with future effect. The revocation should be directed to the above contact details.
Right of Objection
Under the conditions of Art. 21 GDPR you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data. If the conditions for an effective contradiction exist, we may no longer process them.
Right of Appeal to a Supervisory Authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, employment or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data is violating the requirements of the DSGVO.
The transfer of your personal data takes place as described below.
The website is hosted by an external service provider in Germany. In doing so, we ensure that data processing takes place in Germany alone. This is necessary for the operation of the website, as well as for the establishment, implementation and execution of the existing user contract and also without your consent.
In addition, disclosure shall take place if we are entitled or obliged to forward data due to statutory provisions and / or official or judicial orders. This may, in particular, be the provision of information for law enforcement purposes, security or enforcement of intellectual property rights.
Insofar as your data is passed on to service providers to the required extent, they will only have access to your personal data to the extent necessary to fulfill their duties. These service providers are obliged to treat your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the GDPR.
In addition to the aforementioned circumstances, we will not transmit your data without your consent to third parties. In particular, we do not share personally identifiable information with any third country or international organization.
With regard to the storage period, we delete personal data as soon as their storage is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the original purpose and there are no longer any statutory retention periods. The statutory retention periods ultimately form the criterion for the final duration of the storage of personal data. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted. If retention periods exist, processing is restricted by blocking the data.
Third party service providers may have different and separate terms in dealing with the collection, processing and use of personal data. It is therefore advised to check the websites of third parties about their practice for the handling of personal data before entering personal data.
If you have data protection questions, please contact our data protection officer.
