Privacy policy

We, KAMA GmbH, welcome you to our website and appreciate your interest. We take privacy very seriously in our online offering. Below, you will find all the information about the topic.

We always process your personal data in accordance with applicable data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation. However, some of the services that you can access through our website require the processing of personal data. Insofar as we collect personal data (e.g. name, address, telephone number or email address), this is as far as possible on a voluntary basis. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal ground for such processing, data subjects must generally consent to our processing of their data.

We store this data for as long as you wish to use the respective service, after which it will be deleted. We naturally treat your personal data in confidence, and never pass it on to third parties. You can request information about your data at any time (more in the section "User Rights").

As the data controller, KAMA GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that all personal data processed via this website is protected as comprehensively as possible. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, and absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, all data subjects are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or letter.

3. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are filed and stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

We use cookies to optimise the information and offerings on our website for the user. Cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website, which makes it easier for users to use our website. These cookies do not retrieve data stored on your hard drive, and do not interfere with your PC or files. Cookies do not contain viruses, Trojans or other harmful applications. Some cookies are stored on your device until you delete them.

We use so-called session cookies to facilitate your use of our websites (CMS cookies). For some of our website's functions (e.g. logging in), the accessing browser also needs to be identified after switching pages. Otherwise, we cannot offer these functions for technical reasons. These cookies are only stored on your hard drive for the duration of your visit to our website and - depending on your browser settings - deleted when you close the browser. No user profiles are compiled.

When you access our website, an information banner will inform you about our use of cookies for analysis purposes and refer you to this Privacy Policy. We process data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest). You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the respective settings in your browser.

Our website also uses cookies that allow analysis of users' browsing behaviour. We collect the following data for this purpose: e.g. last search term entered, cookie notice, tracking request. We use these cookies to optimise our website and content. User data collected by analysis cookies is pseudonymised by technical measures, which is why the data cannot be allocated to the respective user. No other data about your person is stored.

We use the following cookies:

  • sem/checked: the cookie stores whether the cookie banner has already been displayed.
  • sem/tracking: the cookie stores whether or not the user wishes to be tracked.
  • sword: the cookie stores the search terms in the page search.

Standard browser settings offer you the possibility of rejecting cookies. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time in your browser or by other programmes. Note: we cannot guarantee that you will be able to fully access all the functions of this website if you select the respective settings.

4. Collection of general data and information (log data/log files)

When you access our website, your browser sends a range of technical data that is logged. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files.

The following data is logged in this way:

  • Website visited
  • Time of access
  • Quantity of data sent in bytes
  • Source/referrer from which you accessed the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used (if applicable, in anonymised form)

This information cannot in any way be traced to you as an individual, but is technically necessary for the delivery and presentation of our content. The data collected is used solely for statistical evaluation and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are specific indications of illegal use. The log data is for internal purposes only, and will not be shared with third parties.

6. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

We only process and store your personal information for the period required to achieve the purpose of the storage or as provided for by European directives and regulations or any other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose no longer applies, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

7. User rights

As a data subject, you have the legal right to obtain information about your data stored with us at any time, free of charge.

You may exercise your rights of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, the right of objection and your right of data portability at any time.

If you have provided us with your personal data on the basis of your consent, you may revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Should your request conflict with a legal duty to store data, or should statutory retention periods apply, the data will be blocked and not processed for any other purpose.

Please write to our data protection officer at datenschutz[at]kama.info

If you believe that our processing of your personal data is unlawful, you can contact any supervisory authority on data protection. The responsible supervisory authority is:

Sächsischer Datenschutzbeauftragter (Data protection officer of Saxony)

01067 Dresden
Germany

8. Third-party content and services

Our website offering also includes content and services of other providers that complement our offering. Examples include YouTube videos or the graphic representations of third parties. Accessing these third-party services requires the regular disclosure of your IP address. Therefore, these providers can see and also save your user IP address.

We make every effort to only include those third-party providers who use IP addresses solely for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence on which third-party provider may save the IP address. This saving of address can be used for statistical purposes, for example. We will inform users immediately should we become aware of any storage activities carried out by third parties.

9. Links to other websites

Our website contains links to other websites (so-called external links). We have no influence on whether the operators of these websites comply with data protection regulations. Please note that you will be subject to other privacy policies if you click on links to other websites. We have no influence on their data processing.

10. Data protection provisions for the use of Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service, Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The text files are stored on your computer and allow analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of the website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, activating IP anonymisation on this website means that your IP address is first shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activity and to provide other services related to the website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address that your browser transmits within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that if you do this, you may not be able to fully utilise all functions provided by this website.

You can also prevent the collection and transmission of cookie-generated data relating to your website usage (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by clicking on the following link: This stores an opt-out cookie to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: https://​tools.google.com/​dlpage/​gaoptout

Alternatively to the browser plugin, you can click on this OptOut-link to prevent collection by Google Analytics on this website in the future. This stores an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies, you will need to click on the link again.

11. Privacy policy for the use of YouTube

The data controller has integrated components from YouTube into this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, music videos, trailers or videos produced by users themselves can be called up via the Internet portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time you visit one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and in which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the browser on the data subject's IT system will automatically download a visualisation of the respective YouTube component. More information about YouTube can be found at www.youtube.com/yout/about/en/. As part of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive information about the specific sub-page of our website the data subject has visited.

If the person concerned is logged on to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits by calling up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged on to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the data subject, the data subject can prevent transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website.

YouTube's Privacy Policy, available at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/, contains information about the collection, processing, and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

If your application is successful, the data and files you submit may be used in the context of our employment relationship with you. If your application is unsuccessful, KAMA GmbH will keep the data and files you have transferred to us in our database for six months in order to answer any questions in connection with your application. After expiration of this period, the data will be deleted.

If you agree to your inclusion in the applicant database of KAMA GmbH in subsequent correspondence so that we can take the data you provided into account when filling other vacancies with us, we will store your data and files in our applicant database for 24 months and then delete them.

You can fully or partially withdraw your application at any time. You can also request that we delete or modify all or some of your transferred data and files in our applicant database at any time.

13. The legal basis for data processing

Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR is our legal office's legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing activities necessary for pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our services. If our company is legally obliged to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

Lastly, our processing operations may be based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Any processing not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases is based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not take priority.

If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, the legitimate interest lies in carrying out our business and maintaining our contractual capability.
